Shakespeare.

        Father of all! in every age
  In every clime adored,
By saint, by savage, and by sage,
  Jehovah, Jove, or Lord.
Pope.

        To you your father should be as a god;
One that compos’d your beauties; yea, and one,
To whom you are but as a form in wax,
By him imprinted, and within his power,
To leave the figure, or disfigure it.
Shakespeare.

But fathers that bear bags shall see their children kind.
