Famous quotes containing the word son:
“So cruel prison how could betide, alas,
As proud Windsor, Where I in lust and joy
With a kings son my childish years did pass
In greater feast than Priams sons of Troy?
Where each sweet place returns a taste full sour;”

But my daughters my daughter all her life.”
