Just a short post to share this lovely quote on Fatherhood with you guys today:
“To be the father of growing daughters is to understand something of what Yeats evokes with his imperishable phrase ‘terrible beauty.’ Nothing can make one so happily exhilarated or so frightened: it’s a solid lesson in the limitations of self to realize that your heart is running around inside someone else’s body. It also makes me quite astonishingly calm at the thought of death: I know whom I would die to protect and I also understand that nobody but a lugubrious serf can possibly wish for a father who never goes away.”
– Christopher Hitchens, Hitch-22: A Memoir
Now enjoy the day with your fathers, father-figures or husbands and if you’re lucky to have all of them with you on this special day, don’t forget to tell them how much they mean to you – remember life is too short to leave things unsaid!
