From the Author
Good dads don’t get enough credit. Even great dads often go unheralded. While researching quotations for this book, I was surprised by the plentiful supply of derisive quotes you can find in the Fatherhood section of quotation dictionaries, especially compared to the small number of accolades. You would never see a feminine version of ” It is seldom a misfortune to be fatherless . . .” in the Motherhood section of any book!When my father died ten years ago, it was certainly a misfortune. How often I’ve shared my joys with him and asked him for advice, as if he were still here. How often I’ve wished that he were. I’d so love to give him this book.
“Just Dads” may poke a little fun at the challenges dads encounter getting us raised, but the book is a thoroughly positive tribute to him. I looked long, hard, far and wide to assemble this collection of quotations. I searched even harder to find wildlife father-and-child photos, and I think the dads who receive this book will enjoy reading quotes like: ” Fatherhood is the single most creative, complicated, fulfilling, frustrating, engrossing, enriching, depleting endeavor of a mans adult life” and ” Every day of my life has been a gift from him.”
