Father's Day - Dad-isms

Strength, stern disciplinarian, sage advise. We must be talking about Dad. Dad always had those sayings and quotes. You know, the ones that contained a hidden message or pushed you to succeed at a difficult task, or towards a higher level of performance at something.. We call those "Dadism's. And, we' are collecting them here.
Just because I love you doesn’t mean I have to like everything you do.
Because I'm the Dad, that's why!
Go ask your mother.....
I brought you into this world, and I can take you out!
I'm a Dad, I know everything.
The sooner you learn to stand on your own two feet, the better off you'll be.
That's just the way life is, son.
You make a better door than a window!
Were you born In a Barn?
Do you think money grows on trees?
I haven’t developed gray hairs for nothing!
You are too young to understand this.
My dad would always try to get me to eat my dinner by saying "It'll put hair on your chest." I never understood this because he told this to my sister!
When ask dad where I could find a helping hand, he said, " At the end of your own arm".
You ain't to old for your "wants" to hurt you. Would always hear this when we would say --- I want ......
"Keep crying, and I'll give you something to cry about."
"Be sure you leave things better than you found them."
"If you don't have time to do it right, how on earth will you ever find time to do it over."
