Famous quotes containing the word son:

    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)

    Tell my son how anxious I am that he may read and learn his Book, that he may become the possessor of those things that a grateful country has bestowed upon his papa—Tell him that his happiness through life depends upon his procuring an education now; and with it, to imbibe proper moral habits that can entitle him to the possession of them.
    Andrew Jackson (1767–1845)

    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)
