"When a father gives to his son, both laugh;
when a son gives to his father, both cry. "
William Shakespeare's quote above is a puzzle to me but I think what it means is that when a father give something to his son, be it a toy or food, or shared a joke, they can both laugh and be happy abpout the things they shared together. When the son gives to his father and they both cry, I think it means that when the son finally gives back when he is older, it is a sense of accomplishment so they can both shed tears of joy for what the Dad had taught his son growing up. I don't know but you may share your interpretation of the quote through the comment.
My husband is a wonderful father to our children and he is a very good example to our son. I hope that our son would grow up just like him. My husband is not a perfect individual (nobody is..) but I can say that he does his best to be the loving father and husband that he can be. He have things in the past that he is not proud of but what matters is now, he applies those past experiences and uses it as a tool to be a good Dad and husband.
