Quote Help

OK, I've got this awesome photo you see here. I'm planning to scrap it -- it's one that demands a single photo LO, because I can't bear to take away from it with other photos.

But I'm stuck on a quote.

I'm looking for a quote that essentially says that there are many great men in the world, but none so important as our fathers. I know I've seen/heard one somewhere, but it's not coming to me.

Word Art will be in the results of this one! I'll definitely share with you the word art I choose, but if there are other great quotes that hit my heartstrings right, I may just put them into word art as well.

Thanks for any help you can offer. Just leave the quotes in the comments, along with who said them! THANK YOU!

***Update*** Here are some ideas - none are quite right though....

- "There never was a truly great man that was not at the same time truly virtuous." Benjamin Franklin

- "The measure of a man is not of his worth, but what he means to those he loves." Leisha Farnsworth

- “True greatness is free, kind, familiar and popular; it lets itself be touched and handled, it loses nothing by being seen at close quarters; the better one knows it, the more one admires it.” Jean de la Bruyere

- "The strength of a nation derives from the integrity of the home." Confucious

- "A great leader chooses the path others will follow." Unknown

- Or I could just write my own: "Of all the heroes, the great and honorable men throughout history, none are more important to a little girl than her father." Does that sound dumb? LOL!

OMG Awesome photo! I'm adding you to my fav bloggers! Fab templates! The quote that came to my mind was... Any man can be a father, but it takes someone special to be a Daddy.
