Famous quotes containing the word son:

    I cannot beat off
    Invincible modes of the sea, hearing:
    Be a man my son by God.
    He turned again
    To the purring jet yellowing the murder story,
    Deaf to the pathos circling in the air.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    A son is a son till he gets him a wife,
    But a daughter’s a daughter the rest of your life.

    Though I am not imperial, and though Elizabeth may not deserve it, the Queen of England will easily deserve to have an emperor’s son to marry.
    Elizabeth I (1533–1603)
