    Friends,

    Father's day is coming this weekend! Amidst all the dad jean jokes and gift planning (I'm thinking of surprising mine with a bottle of his favorite whiskey haha), we wanted to host a small giveaway to honor these men in our lives who were some of the first to inspire us to Never Settle.

    Whether you grew up with two dads, one dad or someone who served as the father figure in your life, we invite you to share: what is something memorable your dad has told you that's stuck with you?

    Three winners will receive OnePlus Gear vouchers, and five runners-up will receive 50 raffle points each. Entries will be accepted from now until Sunday, June 17 at 11:00 PM EDT.

    Never Settle.

    06/19 Update: Hope everyone had a lovely father's day with their families. Thank you to everyone who shared in this giveaway. It was an honor to read all of the nuggets of wisdom and touching stories shared to celebrate Father's Day.

    Congratulations to the following winners who will win OnePlus Gear vouchers:

    @artloverjv
    @Dokohan26

    Last but not least, here are the runners-up who will receive points toward our delightful raffles:

    Nice contest..!!
    I remember one line from my dad which I still get to hear "When you will become dad, you will know why I am telling you this..!!"

    I plan to give this to my dad. It has collection of 5000 songs of his times, FM and usb port.

    Thank you once again Ruby for another great, heart touching contest :)

    This is what my Dad told me that stuck with me:

    "When you will become the man of yourself and your family, remember, you act as a neck, you provide balance, support and brain function in order to keep things afloat. Be that man, be a man that I am proud of." :D

    @Ruby G. here my answer to: what is something memorable your dad has told you that's stuck with you?

    That he is proud of me after I told him, that I am going to marry this summer :)

    I've said this earlier. The best thing which was said by my father was "Learn to say no"

    I'm thinking to gift something special to my Dad. I know it's not possible for me to do it on Father's Day, but I plan on getting him this before/on his birthday ;)

    He's a Johnnie Walker guy XD not super adventurous, he tends to find something he likes and then drink it for 30 years.

    My Father is my First Hero in my life.My Father is the best person I have ever seen in my life. If there is someone from whom I can learn everything it is my Father. My father is a teacher in a well known school in our town. My Father is my ideal person. My Father is a favorite character not only for me but also for many students in the school he works.One thing my father told me is that never do that thing to others which you would not want to happen with you. Love you dad.

    Sadly my dad died suddenly on his afternoon walk 7 years ago, so whilst I don't have a line to share, I advise everyone who still has theirs to value the time they have with them, mend any broken bridges and listen to their advice.



    I wasn't there that morning
    When my Father passed away
    I didn't get to tell him
    All the things I had to say

    I think I caught his spirit
    Later that same year
    I'm sure I heard his echo
    In my baby's new born tears

    I just wish I could have told him in the living years

    Literally whenever I told him the price of anything he'd say "Didn't pay that for my first car". No matter what price it was.
    It could be £3 for a coffee and he'd say it. Pretty much whenever he'd find something that was a little bit expensive.
    Still makes me laugh

    Mine was from a hard-suffering and hard-working generation. He was never shy about giving advice but the thing he used to say which, since he has died, has really hit home is:

    "You'll never miss the water till the well runs dry."

    Don't take everyday 'luxuries' for granted, and treasure those around you.
    Now I wish I had called or spoken more often so why don't you tell your dad you love him more often. There will come a time when you wish you had.

    The memorable thing my father told me was the day he lent me a very nice car to him and he told me that his father would be very proud! Unfortunately he is no longer from this world and now I am the one who is very proud of him. :hearteyes:


    Good luck all.

    My pa told me something once that has stuck with me: Keep moving and don't just sit there. Life moves too fast and you'll be SOL if you don't make your moves. Early Happy Father's Day to y'all Dad's out there!

    The thing that my father sais often and which has stuck with me throughout my life is “Having all the money in the world doesn’t make you happy, it’s family, friends and your community which bring joy to your life, money can’t buy you true friends or happiness but love and kindness most certainly can.” I have never forgot my father telling me this and it is so true.

    Thanks for another great competition @Ruby G.
