Happy Birthday, Dad

Posted March 16, 2013 By Jandy

It’s my dad’s birthday. Here is a quote from Carlos Ruiz Zafon’s The Shadow of the Wind (translated by Lucia Graves):

“Do you think I could ever be a father?”

“A good father?”

“Yes. Like yours. A man with a head, a heart, and a soul. A  man capable of listening, of leading and respecting a child, and not of drowning his own defects in him. Someone whom a child will not only love because he’s his father but will also admire for the person he is. Someone he would want to grow up to resemble.”

I have a good father. Happy birthday, Dad
