Quote of the Week

In light of Father’s Day this weekend, I found a couple great quotes to honor the man who raised me.

“Any man can be a father. It takes someone special to be a dad.”

“When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.”

~Mark Twain, “Old Times on the Mississippi” Atlantic Monthly, 1874
Jimmy Piersal, on how to diaper a baby: “Spread the diaper in the position of the diamond with you at bat. Then, fold second base down to home and set the baby on the pitcher’s mound. Put first base and third together, bring up home plate and pin the three together. Of course, in case of rain, you gotta call the game and start all over again.”
