Fathers

"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." Mark Twain

Fathers teach children to ride bicycles and endure life's harder lessons. Father figures can have a powerful influence on people of any age. A father can also be someone who originates a movement, such as "the father of our country."
