We gathered some Father's Day quotes to get you started:

He didn't tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it. ~Clarence Budington Kelland

Fatherhood is pretending the present you love most is soap-on-a-rope. ~Bill Cosby

It is not flesh and blood but the heart which makes us fathers and sons. ~Johann Schiller

Old as she was, she still missed her daddy sometimes. ~Gloria Naylor

Spread the diaper in the position of the diamond with you at bat. Then fold second base down to home and set the baby on the pitcher's mound. Put first base and third together, bring up home plate and pin the three together. Of course, in case of rain, you gotta call the game and start all over again. ~Jimmy Piersal, on how to diaper a baby, 1968

Dad, you're someone to look up to no matter how tall I've grown. ~Author Unknown
