- Johann Schiller
It is not flesh and blood but the heart, which makes us fathers and sons.
- Lord Chesterfield
As fathers commonly go, it is seldom a misfortune to be fatherless; and considering the general run of sons, as seldom a misfortune to be childless.
- Helen Rowland
A man’s desire for a son is usually nothing but the wish to duplicate himself in order that such a remarkable pattern may not be lost to the world.
- Aldous Huxley
Sons have always a rebellious wish to be disillusioned by that, which charmed their fathers.
