The 10 Best Father’s Day Quotes

Here are the top 10 Father’s Day quotes.   As a stepdad, the quote from J. August Strindberg really resonated with me – provider for all and enemy of all.  Am I the only stepfather who feels that way?   I think of my own father when I read Bartrand Hubbard’s quote. 
 
In the late 1950’s my father immigrated to the United States from Panama with nothing but a strong desire to make a life for himself and my mom.  Over the next 50+ years he did just that.  My father laid a firm foundation for my brother, Greg and I to start from.  He  instilled in me the values of integrity, hard work and relationships with others.  
 
As a kid I grew up learning of the intense pride he took in his Panamian roots and now in his later years I’m amazed to see his Panamian pride overshadowed by his patriotism and love for America.  My Dad is living evidence America is truly the land of opportunity.   How do you feel about your dad?   Are you looking for quote that best fits your father?
