― Dr. Tony Beizaee


“My Dad did nothing to elevate himself, for selflessness was a trait within himself that compelled him to live outside of himself. And while I doubt that he ever grasped the immensity of his selflessness as it was unleashed into the lives of his children, that forever unleashed life within us that is now being unleashed outside of us.”

― Craig D. Lounsbrough


“I’ll always be my dad’s daughter if nothing else.”

― Angie Thomas, On the Come Up


“Remember the end goal You are trying to make a full grown human capable of surviving in the wild on their own. You aren’t going to keep them forever. You can’t make them live your life for you. You can’t coddle them and do everything for them. You are preparing them to leave you. Don’t lose sight of that!”

― Josh Hatcher


“Being a Dad is not about creating a life, for that demands little of your life. It’s about cultivating a life, for that demands all of your life.”

― Craig D. Lounsbrough


“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
