Famous quotes containing the word son:

    Martin Luther King, Jr., was the conscience of his generation.... He and I grew up in the same South, he the son of a clergyman, I the son of a farmer. We both knew from opposite sides, the invisible wall of racial segregation.
    Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)

    Gargantua, at the age of four hundred four score and forty- four years begat his son Pantagruel, from his wife, named Badebec, daughter of the King of the Amaurotes in Utopia, who died in child-birth: because he was marvelously huge and so heavy that he could not come to light without suffocating his mother.
    François Rabelais (1494–1553)

    All know that all the dead in the world about that place are stuck
    And that should mother seek her son she’d have but little luck
    Because the fires of Purgatory have ate their shapes away;
    I swear to God I questioned them and all they had to say
    Was fol de rol de rolly O.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
