Quotes: Raising Sons

Quotes: Raising Sons. Via S. Thorsman

“As a father I want the best for my sons. I don’t necessarily want them to have wealth or an easy life. I want them to know of all the gods, I want them to love their family and folk, I want them to be able to run a mile without stopping, I want them to be able to do100 push ups, I want them to be able to track, kill, and dress a deer, I want them to write poetry, I want them to know how to throw a punch. I want them to understand getting punched in the mouth won’t kill them. I want them to be able to grow their own food. I want them to know they can always count on their brothers to be there for them. I want them to read Plato. I want them to love the woman they choose to spend their lives with. I want them to know how to start a fire, I want them to honor their ancestors. I want them to play an instrument. I want them to be able to carve something out of wood. I want them to know basic first aid. I want them to get along and work with others. I want them to always stand up and never back down when it comes to right and wrong. I want them to live their lives in a way that will make their great grand fathers whom they never met proud.”
