The Tao of Dad celebrates the nobility and courage of men-the leaders, the thinkers, the teachers, and the soldiers-who shape our world today. Real words about real life show us how we can be wiser and happier, when we open our hearts and minds. —Taro Gold, The Tao of Dad Author Taro Gold's life has been enriched by the guidance and comradeship of many great dads-from his father and stepfather to his grandpa-and great-grandpa. The Tao of Dad is a fountain of insightful gems inspired by these men and many more dads around the world and across the ages. Illustrated with bold and stunning watercolor art, this compendium of wise words offers important lessons and hope-filled visions from both Eastern and Western dads. "Physical force is temporary, as the body is transitory. But spiritual power is permanent, as the spirit is everlasting." — Mahatma Gandhi "Peace, like charity, begins at home." — Franklin D. Roosevelt "A day without laughter is a day wasted." — Grandpa The Chinese word tao means "way" and implies "teachings" or "wisdom," making The Tao of Dad the way to great, wise fathers. With more than 400 uplifting and thought-provoking quotes with Eastern sensibilities, The Tao of Dad will remind readers of the cherished moments, important lessons, and forward-looking visions that they have shared with the dads in their lives.Original Publisher: Kansas City, Andrews McMeel PublishingLanguage(s): EnglishISBN: 9780740787850
