Father’s Day is coming up soon, and we at Morguard can’t wait to celebrate the important role that fathers play in building character and compassion in their kids. Dads are a source of wisdom and experience who always somehow know how to make things better. In honor of Father’s Day, we want to share some words of advice given by and to fathers.
“My father taught me not to overthink things, that nothing will ever be perfect, so just keep moving and do your best.” — Scott Eastwood, son of Clint Eastwood
“My father and mother emphasized two things: Every person is responsible for his or her own actions, and, to the best of your ability, leave the world better than you found it.” — Bill Nye the Science Guy
"He taught me a lot of lessons. My dad had a really big personality, and he was a really gracious person… He wasn't afraid to let his big personality show, and sometimes that was a good thing and sometimes it was a bad thing. But when he walked into a room you knew it. That's a powerful lesson, to see the presence of a person." — Mayim Bialik of The Big Bang Theory
On being a dad:
“You look at your children and it’s like you’re peering into a big magic mirror, and it speaks to you: ‘What you see before you is a reflection of your best and worst qualities. Deal with it.’ Best thing that ever happened to me.” — Don Henley of Eagles
“The life is so youth-oriented, it keeps me young. And that obviously relates to how I approach parenting—doing things that are more fun with my kids; not just being the role-model guy all the time. You definitely have to set some boundaries, but I also want to participate with my kids and to have fun.” — Tony Hawk, pro skateboarder
"If you say ‘give me five minutes, give me ten minutes,’…when you get there, the shine will have worn off whatever it is the kids wanted to share with you. I’ve never gotten up to see something one of my kids wanted to show me and not been rewarded." — Michael J Fox, actor
