It is a wise father that knows his own child.
One father is more than a hundred schoolmasters.
I cannot think of any need in childhood as strong as the need for a father’s protection.
Fathers, be good to your daughters. You are the god and the weight of her world.
- John Mayor

Direct your children onto the right path,
