Famous quotes containing the word son:

    Give me your blessing; truth will come to light; murder cannot be hid long; a man’s son may, but in the end truth will out.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Nor does the family even move about together,
    But every son would have his motor cycle,
    And daughters ride away on casual pillions.
    —T.S. (Thomas Stearns)

    Until you have a son of your own . . . you will never know the joy, the love beyond feeling that resonates in the heart of a father as he looks upon his son. You will never know the sense of honor that makes a man want to be more than he is and to pass something good and hopeful into the hands of his son. And you will never know the heartbreak of the fathers who are haunted by the personal demons that keep them from being the men they want their sons to be.
    Kent Nerburn (20th century)
