Father’s Day is this weekend! To celebrate, we ran a contest on our Facebook page and asked our fans to share their favorite dad quotes. It was a joy to read the messages of love, reassurance, wisdom, and utter randomness that we can rely on our fathers to share with us. We love you, Dad!

We’ve rounded up our favorites below – check them out and let us know your favorite in the comments!
