Henry David ThoreauToday, Father's Day, I dedicated this quote to all fathers who are leaving their children and grandchildren a wonderful legacy—their "footprints on the sands of time".
Note: +Mariann Regan deserves a mention, since I would not have necessarily chosen this quote today, if it wasn't for her thoughtful and insightful comment last week. I know Mariann supports, not only my blogs, but many other bloggers in the genealogy community! Last week, in response to the saying I posted by Ralph Waldo Emerson's, Mariann remarked that compared to Emerson, Thoreau was mostly concerned with "solitude and meditation". Therefore, as I was searching for this week's quote, the line from Thoreau jumped out at me. I thought we would all enjoy seeing that Henry David Thoreau, in his solitude did at times meditate on ancestors. Thanks, Mariann for leaving such contemplative comments which help spark great conversations!
Happy Father's Day!
