Dad Speaks

Growing up, whenever there’s an occasion — birthdays, graduation, promotion or whatever cheery event. My Dad would always take time to write something, in a form of a letter or a greeting card. And somewhere in his note, he would always append some sort of quotations. His simple way of reminding and instilling good values. That’s how he is, then and even now. Here are some of his scholarly words…

Family is the most solid form known to mankind. Protect it, nurture it and treasure it for it’s a gift not everyone possess.

The best way to double your money, fold it and put it in your pocket.

Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.

Manners maketh man.

Failure is not the only punishment for laziness, there is also the success of others.

Everything in my life, it seems, is managed by order, method, truth, belief and discipline. It may appear earnest, but it made me a potent person. It’s a little something I learned from my Dad.  Happy Fathers Day, Paps!
