Dragon-Seeker, Bent on Improbable Rescue

Certain is it that there is no kind of affection so purely angelic as of a father to a daughter. In love to our wives there is desire; to our sons, ambition; but to our daughters there is something which there are no words to express.  ~ Joseph Addison
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 it took such months to get.  -Phyllis McGinley
It is the nature of babies to be in bliss. - Deepak Chopra
"A child is a curly, dimpled lunatic."  ~  Ralph Waldo Emerson
Sometimes the poorest man leaves his children the richest inheritance.  ~Ruth E. Renkel

God I wish I'd had a daddy.
The one damn good thing I did in this lifetime was to give my kids a good one. I swear. You have done the same.
This was beautiful, Maggie May. Just beautiful.
