Our favourite fatherhood quotes

Dad ... A son's first hero, a daughter's first loveTo celebrate Father’s Day we thought we’d share some of our favourite quotes about fathers, or by fathers …

Some will make you laugh, some will make you nod and say, ‘that’s so true” others will make you so very pleased that you don’t actually know anyone quite like Homer Simpson. Unless you do, then that one might bring a tear to your eye.

Happy Father’s Day to all the awesome dads out there! Love your work!
