Dad Quotes

Even though most dads today are no longer the main providers of their families, they still remain an important figure in the family structure. Fathers are the main sources of motivation and inspiration for their children, resulting in children often learning the most important life skills from their fathers. Nine times out of 10, children grow up possessing a high level of character if they have their dads supporting and supervising them throughout their childhood.

1. I Still Learn

I still learn, but I
"I still learn, but I think it's the best thing in life to have a kid."
-Cristiano Ronaldo

2. Compared with Pele

"It is good to be compared with the best player (Pele), but my dad told me about Garrincha's style as he moved forward, went up, attacked and dribbled. Garrincha's style is more similar to Neymar's."

Over the years, inspirational dads have made their way to headlines. Three notable “supermen” are Frank McKinney, Dick Hoyt, and Mike Hanley. McKinney walked his daughter to school every day for 10 years (except for times when he was out of town) with the pair racking up a total of 1,650 walks and 1,000 miles. Hoyt was 73 years old when he motivated his son with cerebral palsy to eventually forge an athletic career and run in 1,000 races. Hanley, on the other hand, ignored the traditional Bat Mitzvah dance with his daughter and instead danced with a medley of songs from contemporary artists such as Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga. Inspirational indeed.
