Quotations for Father’s Day

Father’s Day is celebrated in honor of fathers all around the world. This day is marked specially for celebrating fatherhood and the influence of fathers in the society.  Many countries celebrate it on the third Sunday of June.  Father’s Day complements Mother’s Day, a celebration that honors mothers and motherhood.

I searched around and compiled a few selected quotes in honor of Father’s day.
