Thoughts for Thursday: Fathers

Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

With this Sunday being Father's Day, I thought it appropriate that this week's theme be quotes about Fathers(I chose green in honor of my father. It's his favorite color. ;D)

My father gave me the greatest gift anyone could give another person, he believed in me.--Jim Valvano

When a father gives to his son, both laugh; when a son gives to his father, both cry.--William Shakespeare

I believe that what we become depends on what our fathers teach us at odd moments, when they aren't trying to teach us. We are formed by little scraps of wisdom.--Umberto Eco, Foucault's Pendulum

I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father's protection.--Sigmund Freud

What was silent in the father speaks in the son, and often I found in the son the unveiled secret of the father.--Friedrich Nietzsche

What's your favorite quote about fathers? Do you have one to add?
