20 Best Father-Son Quotes – Sayings About Sons and Dads for Father’s Day


Ree and Ladd Drummond welcomed their sons Bryce and Todd in 2002 and 2004, respectively, and added their beloved “Bonus Kid” to the family (that’s Jamar to you!) just last year. So it’s safe to say Ladd’s had lots of experience with the whole father-son thing—decades of it, to be precise.

But whether you, too, have been a “boy dad” for years now or are just about to step into that wonderful, blissful, chaotic era of life, we have a feeling you’ll enjoy reading through these father-son quotes. Each and every saying, lyric, and excerpt on our list will remind you just how much your son means to you—and for the sons out there, we’re hoping these Father’s Day quotes will make it that much easier to wish your dad a Happy Father’s Day. After all, there are few Father’s Day messages quite as meaningful as this family quote from Johann Friedrich von Schiller: “It is not flesh and blood, but the heart which makes us fathers and sons.”

Of course, if you’re looking for something a little lighter, we’ve got you covered there, too. “When you’re young, you think your dad is Superman,” reads one funny option from Dave Attell. “Then you grow up, and you realize he’s just a regular guy who wears a cape.”
