About Father's Day:
Father's Daywas started in 1909 by Sonora Louise Smart Dodd from Spokane, WA to honor her dad, William Smart. Dodd's mother died during childbirth with her sixth baby, leaving Smart, a Civil War veteran, to raise the kids himself. When Dodd was grown up she realized how much her father sacrificed for her and her siblings. June 19, 1910 marked the first Father's Day ever, and it was observed in Spokane, WA. Across the country other areas began to observe the holiday as well. President Lyndon B. Johnson officially declared the third Sunday in June Father's Day. - holidays.net

"By profession I am a soldier and take pride in that fact. But I am prouder - infinitely prouder - to be a father. A soldier destroys in order to build; the father only builds, never destroys. The one has the potentiality of death; the other embodies creation and life. And while the hordes of death are mighty, the battalions of life are mightier still. It is my hope that my son, when I am gone, will remember me not from the battle field but in the home repeating with him our simple daily prayer, 'Our Father who art in Heaven"
-Douglas Macarthur

"Henry James once defined life as that predicament which precedes death, and certainly nobody owes you a debt of honor or gratitude for getting him into that predicament. But a child does owe his father a debt, if Dad, having gotten him into this peck of trouble, takes off his coat and buckles down to the job of showing his son how best to crash through it."
- Clarence Budington Kelland
" The thing to remember about fathers is... they're men. A girl has to keep it in mind: They are dragon-seekers, bent on improbable rescues. Scratch any father, you find someone chock-full of qualms and romantic terrors, believing change is a threat, like your first shoes with heels on, like your first bicycle...
- Phyllis McGinley

" If the relationship of father to son could really be reduced to biology, the whole earth would blaze with the glory of fathers and sons.
- James Baldwin

" My father hated radio and he could not wait for television to be invented so that he could hate that too.
