Sons are not just sons—they can be older brothers who serve as role models for their siblings, or the younger brothers whose love and admiration is unconditional. Sons are also nephews and grandchildren who eventually become fathers, uncles, and grandfathers themselves. A son has as much to teach his parents about the world as they have to teach him.
Sons Are Special celebrates the unique bond between sons and parents and the love filled with wonder, laughter, and joy. With touching, tender, and humorous quotes, this book is a perfect gift for any son or parent of a son.

Every son, at one point or another, defies his father, fights him, departs from him, only to return to him—if he is lucky—closer and more secure than before.
—Bob Hope

Every father should remember that one day his son will follow his example instead of his advice.
—Anonymous

It takes one woman twenty years to make a man of her son, and another woman twenty minutes to make a fool of him.
—Helen Rowland

It is but natural for a mother to have more regard for her son than for a whole city.
—William Hazlitt

No one can make me laugh the way my son makes me laugh.
—Debra Messing

He that will have his son have respect for him and his orders, must himself have a great reverence for his son.
