Many of us have sayings that our fathers embedded in our psyche.
My father had a few sayings that stay with me. He was a cop, so the most resounding one was, “People steal.”
His other notable sayings were, “Never take food off another man’s table,” and “A rainy day is coming.”
Below are other dad sayings that we’ve come across. Share memorable quotes from your father, in the comments.
- From Yahoo.com:
“Go ask your mother.”
“I’m not made of money.”
“Keep your hands on the wheel.”

“I didn’t say you were ugly. I said you girlfriend is better looking than you and standing next to her. You look ugly.”

“"Stop crying or I'll give you something to cry about."
- How about this one?
In response to a daughter's rant about her dad on Yahoo Answers, a commenter said:
"...Dads have been around longer then their kids. Dads have made their share of mistakes and have a lot to draw upon when saying what is wrong with others. Dads are tired and wore out and want to be couch potatoes. Dads have heard and seen it all. Dads have been there done that. Would you like me to go on or is that enough."
Tell us what only your dad would say...
