Daughter quotes by Salman Rushdie
#1. If you are for Allah, I am for Al-Lat. And she doesn't believe your God when he recognizes her. Her opposition to him is implacable, irrevocable, engulfing. The war between us cannot end in truce. And what a truce! Yours is a patronizing, condescending lord. Al-Lat hasn't the slightest wish to be Allah's daughter. She is his equal, as I am yours. #Quote by Salman Rushdie
Daughter quotes by Jerry Spinelli
#2. But she loves her daughter, David can tell, loves her the way David's mother loved him, and sometimes David feels that same love he used to, except now it's coming from other places, other people, and it's a good thing the love is coming because he's beginning to think there aren't enough rules in the universe to bring his mother back. #Quote by Jerry Spinelli
Daughter quotes by Taya Kyle
#3. But amid all the peace, I couldn't entirely escape my sadness. One morning I was out walking and suddenly felt as if I were being pushed down into a hole. My friend's adult daughter happened to see me and asked what was wrong.
"I just realized that Chris doesn't really belong to me anymore," I told her. Tears were rolling down my face. "He belongs to everyone, and I've lost that part of him that was mine."
"I have chills all over my body," she said. "This has never happened to me before, but I feel Chris wants me to tell you something. He'll always be yours. #Quote by Taya Kyle
Daughter quotes by Henri-Pierre Roche
#4. Soon after they went back, Jules said to Jim: 'I love Magda. But it's a habit; it's not a great Love, not the real thing. To me, she's like a young mother and an attentive daughter, both at once.' 'But that's fine!' 'It's not the love I've always dreamed of having.' 'Does that kind of love exist?' said Jim. 'Of course! My love for Lucie.' Jim checked himself from saying, 'Because you do not possess her.' 'Besides,' Jules went on, 'knowing myself as I do, I shall never be able to forgive any woman for loving me. To love me is a sign of perversion or compromise -- and Lucie doesn't suffer from either. There's not a particle of me that she accepts.' 'With her, any man could think that.' 'Yes, could...' said Jules 'But I do.' 'Oh well,' said Jim, 'it's heroic and one can't help respecting it. It's a bit like martyrdom. And it's the key to your Life. If Lucie loved you...' 'She wouldn't be Lucie.' said Jules. #Quote by Henri-Pierre Roche
Daughter quotes by Nicki Minaj
#5. Being honest, if I had a daughter I wouldn't want her listening to a Nicki Minaj CD until she was a certain age. Even when I meet my fans and they tell me they are 12, I cringe a little. I always say, 'Listen. I don't want you saying the bad words, put school first.' #Quote by Nicki Minaj
Daughter quotes by Anita Diamant
#6. We have been lost to each other for so long. My name means nothing to you. My memory is dust. This is not your fault, or mine. The chain connecting mother to daughter was broken and the word passed to the keeping of men, who had no way of knowing. #Quote by Anita Diamant
Daughter quotes by Conan O'Brien
#7. President Obama filled in as the coach of his daughter Sasha's basketball team. Sasha evidently listened to her Dad, because all she did was drive straight down the center and piss everyone off. #Quote by Conan O'Brien
Daughter quotes by Naomi Judd
#8. I've had women tell me that when their daughters see them taking care of themselves, and being defined from within, and thinking for themselves instead of thinking about that silly culture out there, it's powerful modeling. #Quote by Naomi Judd
Daughter quotes by Jamie Lee Curtis
#9. So, am I friendly with my daughter and her friends? Yes. Am I their friend? No. Does she shut the door? Yes, and I very much support the shut door. #Quote by Jamie Lee Curtis
Daughter quotes by Jen Turano
#10. Realizing that Abigail - given that she'd had relatively no sleep the night before - was in no state to deal with an irate daughter, Lucetta did the only thing she could think of. She drew in a deep breath, closed her eyes, then summoned up every acting ability she had at her disposal, right before she released a moan and dropped to the ground. #Quote by Jen Turano
Daughter quotes by R. Scott Bakker
#11. Our words always paint two portraits when we describe our families to others. Outsiders cannot but see the small peeves and follies that wrinkle our relationships with our loved ones. The claims we make in defensive certainty
that we were the one wronged, that we were the one who wanted the best
cannot but fall on skeptical ears since everyone makes the same claimsof virtue and innocence. We are always more than we want to be in the eyes of others simply because we are blind to the bulk of what we are.
...
Mimara had wanted him to see her as a victim, as a long-suffering penitent, more captive than daughter, and not as someone embittered and petulant, someone who often held others accountable for her inability to feel safe, to feel anything unpolluted by the perpetual pang of shame ...
And he loved her the more for it. #Quote by R. Scott Bakker
Daughter quotes by George R R Martin
#12. I am Cersei of House Lannister, a lion of the Rock, the rightful queen of these Seven Kingdoms, trueborn daughter of Tywin Lannister. And hair grows back. #Quote by George R R Martin
Daughter quotes by Katie Pavlich
#13. Well, I am actually a daughter of the American Revolution #Quote by Katie Pavlich
Daughter quotes by Roberto G. Ferrari
#14. My son is the man who is handing his passport to the policeman.
My son is the policeman who is receiving the passport.
My son is the old man in front of me in the queue, here, in the air-port, in Beijing.
Over the last twelve months, I have been seeing the face of my son in the faces of all the Chinese people I have happened to meet.
I was walking in Milan, Italy, when Laura called me and told me that our application had been finally sent to China. We would be receivinga son or a daughter from China. I was excited. I put my phone into my jacket pocket and slowed down in the Corso Vittorio Emanuele gallery. There was a multitude of people around me, but I was totally unaware of their existence. I was trying to picture my son's, or my daughter's face and hands. I wondered what age he or she was. For a while I kept imagining and reviewing all the possibilities, and all the hypotheses, but I was not able to create an image which would bring an end to my seeking.
Then, suddenly, I found him.
He was walking in front of me with his wife and little daughter. I was not sure about his origin, if he were truly Chinese or not, but it was definitely him. He was a little younger than I. I was happy to see he was so distinguished, with his gold-rimmed glasses and nicely ironed, blue shirt. #Quote by Roberto G. Ferrari
Daughter quotes by John K. Brown
#15. I used to be terrified of death. My grandfather was terminal in the hospital across from my high school, yet I never visited him. That fact still haunts me to this day. Years later, my arms were around my grandmother as she struggled with her last breaths. I told her we were with her and everything was going to be okay. She died as I held her tightly and I felt her body lose life. It was the most peaceful moment I ever experienced, and I felt joy for her. It was an emotional, intellectual, and spiritual moment for me. I wasn't afraid anymore ... One day years later I received the phone call every parent dreads. My daughter was in a serious automobile accident. As I raced to her I prepared myself for the news she had died. Once again, I felt an unexpected and profound emotion. She lived, but in the face of that horrifying time there was a strange overall calm. I realized, no matter what, everything was going to be okay. I remembered I wasn't afraid anymore. #Quote by John K. Brown
Daughter quotes by Emma Chase
#16. I was the youngest in my family, and the only daughter, they were highly protective. But instead of restricting me, that protective instinct drove my parents to make sure I was capable and prepared for whatever life may throw at me.
Opportunities, my father would say, have to be seized with both hands, because you never know if they'll come again. #Quote by Emma Chase
Daughter quotes by Azar Nafisi
#17. Those who are close to us, when they die, divide our world. There is the world of the living, which we finally, in one way or another, succumb to, and then there is the domain of the dead that, like an imaginary friend (or foe) or a secret concubine, constantly beckons, reminding us of our loss. What is memory but a ghost that lurks at the corners of the mind, interrupting our normal course of life, disrupting our sleep in order to remind us of some acute pain or pleasure, something silenced or ignored? We miss not only their presence, or how they felt about us, but ultimately how they allowed us to feel about ourselves or them. (prologue) #Quote by Azar Nafisi
Daughter quotes by Alfred Hitchcock
#18. When accepting the American Film Institute Life Achievement award: I beg permission to mention by name only four people who have given me the most affection, appreciation, and encouragement, and constant collaboration. The first of the four is a film editor, the second is a scriptwriter, the third is the mother of my daughter Pat (Patricia Hitchcock), and the fourth is as fine a cook as ever performed miracles in a domestic kitchen. And their names are Alma Reville. #Quote by Alfred Hitchcock
Daughter quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#19. Lydia arched a chiding brow at him. "My father didn't tell me anything and I'm still angry at him for that. But I remembered you. Even though I didn't understand it, I felt you with me constantly. And if that wasn't enough…" She took his hand and placed it on her stomach so he could feel the slight swelling there. "You left me with a very special gift."
The news slammed into him harder than one of Noir's blows. She was pregnant?
With his child.
Unimaginable joy ripped through him as he felt the slightest fluttering of his son or daughter moving inside her.
But that only solidified his resolve. "You won't be safe if I leave."
She cupped his now healed face in her hands. "No one ever is, Seth. No matter how hard we try. No matter how much we plan and prepare. There will always be an enemy at the door and a storm trying to knock us down. Life's not about security. It's about picking up the pieces after it's all over and carrying on. We can choose to be cowards who fear letting someone inside us, and do that alone. Or we can choose to be brave and let someone stand by our side and help us. I'm not a coward. I never have been. And there is nowhere else I plan to be, except beside you. Forever. Be it on earth, or here in this hellhole if that's what it takes. I will always be with you."
In that moment, he realized he didn't need his swallow to fly him away from pain.
All he needed was her.
And she was right. It took much more courage to lay h #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Daughter quotes by Monica Dickens
#20. What else happened?' she asked, not because she was particularly interested, but because one must talk to one's mother when she came to visit one, however tired and dispirited one felt. #Quote by Monica Dickens
Daughter quotes by Frances Hardinge
#21. For in this sickened world, it is better to believe in something too fiercely than to believe in nothing.' Words, words, wonderful words. But lies too. 'No, it isn't!' shouted Mosca the Housefly, Quillam Mye's daughter. 'Not if what you're believin' isn't blinkin' well True! You shouldn't just go believin' things for no reason, pertickly if you got a sword in your hand! Sacred just means something you're not meant to think about properly, an' you should never stop thinking! Show me something I can kick, and hit with rocks, and set fire to, and leave out in the rain, and think about, and if it's still standing after all that then maybe, just maybe, I'll start to believe in it, but not till then. An' if all we're left with is muck and wickedness and no gods, then we'd better face it and get used to it because it's better than a lie. Which is what you are, Mr Kohlrabi.' Mosca #Quote by Frances Hardinge
Daughter quotes by Beyonce Knowles
#22. I feel more beautiful than I've ever felt because I've given birth. I have never felt so connected, never felt like I had such a purpose on this earth. The best thing about having a daughter is having a true legacy. The word love means something completely different now. #Quote by Beyonce Knowles
Daughter quotes by Sinclair B. Ferguson
#23. The notion that we are children of God, his own sons and daughters, lies at the heart of all Christian theology, and is the mainspring of all Christian living. #Quote by Sinclair B. Ferguson
Daughter quotes by Louisa May Alcott
#24. What do girls do who haven't any mothers to help them through their troubles? #Quote by Louisa May Alcott
Daughter quotes by Dennis Prager
#25. The next time your daughter asks, 'Where are all the men?' Tell them that the Democratic party and its policies got rid of them' #Quote by Dennis Prager
Daughter quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#26. The church, the state, and the poor, are 3 daughters which we should maintain, but not portion off. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Daughter quotes by Candice Millard
#27. When he arrived, he found that the two most important women in his life - his mother and his young wife - were dying. At 3:00 a.m. on February 14, Valentine's Day, Martha Roosevelt, still a vibrant, dark-haired Southern belle at forty-six, died of typhoid fever. Eleven hours later, her daughter-in-law, Alice Lee Roosevelt, who had given birth to Theodore's first child just two days before, succumbed to Bright's disease, a kidney disorder. That night, in his diary, Roosevelt marked the date with a large black "X" and a single anguished entry: "The light has gone out of my life. #Quote by Candice Millard
Daughter quotes by Sylvia Plath
#28. Doctor Nolan had said, quite bluntly, that a lot of people would treat me gingerly, or even avoid me, like a leper with a warning bell. My mother's face floated to mind, a pale, reproachful moon, at her last and first visit to the asylum since my twentieth birthday. A daughter in an asylum! I had done that to her. Still, she had obviously decided to forgive me. #Quote by Sylvia Plath
Daughter quotes by Sarah J. Maas
#29. Murtaugh went on. "Vernon Lochan survived, but only because he was already the king's puppet, after Cal was executed, Vernon seized his brother's mantle as Lord of Perranth. You know what happened to Lady Marion. But we never learned what happened to Elide." Elide - Lord Cal and Lady Marion's daughter and heir, almost a year younger than Aelin. If she were alive, she would be at least seventeen by now. "Lots of children vanished in the initial weeks," Murtaugh finished. Aedion didn't want to think about those too-small graves. #Quote by Sarah J. Maas
Daughter quotes by Robin Roberts
#30. When my mother makes out her income tax return every year, under occupation she writes, eroding my daughter's self-esteem. #Quote by Robin Roberts
Daughter quotes by Doug Ose
#31. There are a lot of latchkey kids. I don't want to be sitting there when a guy blurts something out over the TV and have my daughters ask me what those words mean. #Quote by Doug Ose
Daughter quotes by Philippa Gregory
#32. I have heard ballads of great battles, and poems about the beauty of a charge and the grace of a leader. But I did not know that war was nothing more than butchery, as savage and unskilled as sticking a pig in the throat and leaving it to bleed to make the meat tender. I did not know that the style and nobility of the jousting arena had nothing to do with this thrust and stab. Just like killing a screaming piglet for bacon after chasing it round the sty. And I did not know that war thrilled men so: they come home laughing like schoolboys after a prank; but they have blood on their hands and a smear of something on their cloaks and the smell of smoke in their hair and a terrible ugly excitement on their faces.

I understand now why they break into convents, force women against their will, defy sanctuary to finish the killing chase. They arouse in themselves a wild vicious hunger more like animals than men. I did not know war was like this. I feel I have been a fool not to know, since I was raised in a kingdom at war and am the daughter of a man captured in battle, the widow of a night, the wife of a merciless solider. But I know now. #Quote by Philippa Gregory
Daughter quotes by Molly Harper
#33. I loved my job at the paper. I loved meeting new people every day and never knowing where I would end up. But somehow, the ever-shifting schedules of a police officer and a reporter did not equal 'family friendly.' One of us needed to take a normal job for the sake of our young daughter. #Quote by Molly Harper
Daughter quotes by Sabrina Jeffries
#34. Secondly," he went on, "a Chief Magistrate is about as far beneath a marquess's daughter as a tree is beneath the moon."
A mutinous look crossed his aunt's face. "Sir Richard started out as a saddler's apprentice. He got himself a knighthood partly because he married a wife with good connections."
"A wealthy baker's daughter. That's a far cry from a lady of rank."
"That doesn't mean it can't happen. You're a fine man, a handsome man, if I do say so myself. You're young and strong, with a good education and gentlemanly manners-better manners than Sir Richard, anyway. And now that you own this house-"
"She lives in a mansion!" Snatching his arm free, he rose. "Do you really think she'd be happy here in Cheapside, with the butchers and merchants and tradesmen?"
Her aunt looked wounded. "I thought you liked this neighborhood."
Damn. "I do, but..." There was nothing for it but to tell her the truth. "She can't stand me, all right? I'd be the last person on earth she'd want to marry." Snatching up the report, he headed for the door. "I have to go."
"Jackson?"
"What?" he barked.
"If that's true, she's a fool."
Lady Celia was no fool. She simply knew better than to take up with a man who didn't know the identity of his own father. He managed a curt nod. "I'll see you tonight, Aunt."
As he left the house, an age-old anger weighed him down. He wouldn't hurt Aunt Ada for the world, but she didn't understand. Ever since he'd started #Quote by Sabrina Jeffries
Daughter quotes by Elizabeth Jennings
#35. She opened up the glass jar she kept spare buttons in and began sorting through them. It was like handling bits and pieces of the past - buttons from loved ones' dresses and suits and coats carefully gathered up and saved for future use. She had inherited many of the buttons from her mother and grandmother, even her Great Aunt Maggie. Each woman adding to the collection, like curators of a family museum. Now what would happen to them? #Quote by Elizabeth Jennings
Daughter quotes by Virginia Woolf
#36. Well then, we went and had tea with Henry James today…and Henry James fixed me with his staring blank eye - it is like a childs marble - and said 'My dear Virginia, they tell me - they tell me - they tell me - that you - as indeed being your fathers daughter nay your grandfathers grandchild - the descendant I may say of a century - of a century - of quill pens and ink - ink - ink pots, yes, yes, yes, they tell me - ahm m m - that you, that you, that you write in short.' This went on in the public street, while we all waited, as farmers wait for the hen to lay an egg - do they? - nervous, polite, and now on this foot now on that. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Daughter quotes by Mary Higgins Clark
#37. When a scientist's son or daughter becomes a scientist they'll say "Wonderful! Wonderful!" So, why, in the name of God, would a mother be jealous to see her daughter become a successful writer? #Quote by Mary Higgins Clark
Daughter quotes by Frances Bean Cobain
#38. I'm a different person. I don't want to be titled as Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain's daughter. I want to be thought of as Frances Cobain. #Quote by Frances Bean Cobain
Daughter quotes by Natasha Trethewey
#39. Even though I am the daughter of a poet, and my stepmother is also a poet, growing up, I didn't think I could understand poetry; I didn't think that it had any relevance to my life, the feelings that I endured on a day-to-day basis, until I was introduced to the right poem. #Quote by Natasha Trethewey
Daughter quotes by Catherynne M. Valente
#40. ...while epic fantasy is based on the fairy tale of the just war, that's not one you'll find in Grimm or Disney, and most will never recognize the shape of it. I think the fantasy genre pitches its tent in the medieval campground for the very reason that we even bother to write stories about things that never happened in the first place: because it says something subtle and true about our own world, something it is difficult to say straight out, with a straight face. Something you need tools to say, you need cheat codes for the human brain--a candy princess or a sugar-coated unicorn to wash down the sour taste of how bad things can really get.

See, I think our culture has a slash running through the middle of it, too. Past/Future, Conservative/Liberal, Online/Offline. Virgin/Whore. And yes: Classical/Medieval. I think we're torn between the Classical Narrative of Self and the Medieval Narrative of Self, between the choice of Achilles and Keep Calm and Carry On.

The Classical internal monologue goes like this: do anything, anything, only don't be forgotten. Yes, this one sacrificed his daughter on a slab at Aulis, that one married his mother and tore out his eyes, and oh that guy ate his kids in a pie. But you remember their names, don't you? So it's all good in the end. Give a Greek soul a choice between a short life full of glory and a name echoing down the halls of time and a long, gentle life full of children and a quiet sort of virtue, and he'll alwa #Quote by Catherynne M.

Daughter quotes by Jay Inslee
#41. We need to get our sons and daughters home and their responsibility for the security of Iraq needs to be assumed by Iraqis who will stand up and toe the line for their countries. #Quote by Jay Inslee
Daughter quotes by Kelly Sue DeConnick
#42. I am willing to make people uncomfortable so that my daughter doesn't have to! #Quote by Kelly Sue DeConnick
Daughter quotes by Michelle Cliff
#43. She picked up the book beside her. Jane Eyre. Used, bought recently in a bookshop in Camden Passage, shabby nineteenth-century binding, pages bearing vague stains, fingered, smoothed. She opened the book to the place she left it when the taxicab pulled up.

"My daughter, flee temptation."
"Mother, I will," Jane responded, as the moon turned to woman.

The fiction had tricked her. Drawn her in so that she became Jane.

Yes. The parallels were there. Was she not heroic Jane? Betrayed. Left to wander. Solitary. Motherless. Yes, and with no relations to speak of except an uncle across the water. She occupied her mind.

Comforted for a time, she came to. Then, with a sharpness, reprimanded herself. No, she told herself. No, she could not be Jane. Small and pale. English. No, she paused. No, my girl, try Bertha. Wild-maned Bertha. Clare thought of her father. Forever after her to train her hair. His visions of orderly pageboy. Coming home from work with something called Tame. She refused it; he called her Medusa. Do you intend to turn men to stone, daughter? She held to her curls, which turned kinks in the damp of London. Beloved racial characteristic. Her only sign, except for dark spaces here and there where melanin touched her. Yes, Bertha was closer to the mark. Captive. Ragôut. Mixture. Confused. Jamaican. Caliban. Carib. Cannibal. Cimarron. All Bertha. All Clare. #Quote by Michelle Cliff
Daughter quotes by Myles Munroe
#44. I'm washed, I'm forgiven, I'm whole, and I'm healed. I'm cleansed and I'm glory bound. I am only a sojourner on the earth. I am but a pilgrim on this planet, on my way to perfection, and I don't need anybody to tell me who I am, because I know who I am. I am a child of the King, a son (or daughter) of God, born again through Jesus Christ, bought with the price of His blood. I am a new creation, totally new, thoroughly loved and completely accepted as a child of my Father, precious in His sight. #Quote by Myles Munroe
Daughter quotes by Sharon Guskin
#45. In the event of a change in cabin pressure, the flight attendant on the video was saying, you put your oxygen mask on first, pulling the cord, and then you helped others in your party who needed your assistance. The video showed a nice-looking dad tugging the oxygen mask over his own face, his placid daughter sitting quietly beside him, breathing bad air.
What kind of idiot came up with that rule? The didn't understand human nature at all.
She imagined the compartment filling slowly with smoke and Noah beside her, gasping. Did they really think that she could straighten the mask on her own face and breathe in clean air while her asthmatic son struggled to take a breath? The assumption was that she and her child were two different entities with seperate hearts and lungs and minds. They didn't realise that when your child was gasping for air, you felt your own breath trapped in your chest. #Quote by Sharon Guskin
Daughter quotes by Thrity Umrigar
#46. Every year when I stands first in my class, Ma gives me the advice: Daughter, she say, never be gamandi. What you have, given to you by God. You just a basket into which God puts the flowers. Flowers not belong to you. They belongs to God. Same way, your clever belong to God. #Quote by Thrity Umrigar
Daughter quotes by Ann Romney
#47. Women wear many hats in their lives. Daughter, sister, student, breadwinner. But no matter where we are or what we're doing, one hat that moms never take off is the crown of motherhood. There is no crown more glorious. #Quote by Ann Romney
Daughter quotes by Georgette Heyer
#48. Mrs Grayshott was no tattle-monger; and since she had a great deal of reserve Abby knew that only a stringent sense of duty could have forced her to overcome her distaste of talebearing. What she knew, either from her own observation, or from the innocent disclosures of her daughter, she plainly thought to be too serious to be withheld from Fanny's aunt. At the same time, thought Abigail, dispassionately considering her, the well-bred calm of her manners concealed an over-anxious disposition, which led her to magnify possible dangers. #Quote by Georgette Heyer
Daughter quotes by Barack Obama
#49. Obviously [my daughters] - and Michelle - have made a lot of sacrifices on behalf of my cockamamie ideas, the running for office and things. #Quote by Barack Obama
Daughter quotes by Ana Monnar
#50. If I had to do it all again, I would still want my same daughter and two sons; through laughter, tears, prayers, and blessings. #Quote by Ana Monnar
Daughter quotes by Epictetus
#51. Be careful to leave your sons [and daughters] well instructed rather than rich, for the hopes of the instructed are better than the wealth of the ignorant."
[in brackets: though I have only sons, I am--of course--someone's daughter] #Quote by Epictetus
Daughter quotes by Adrienne Rich
#52. We are, none of us, 'either' mothers or daughters; to our amazement, confusion, and greater complexity, we are both. #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Daughter quotes by Rose Kennedy
#53. My father was a great innovator in public life, but when it came to raising his daughters, no one could have been more conservative. #Quote by Rose Kennedy
Daughter quotes by Samuel L. Jackson
#54. My dad was an absentee dad, so it was always important to me that I was part of my daughter's life, and she deserved two parents, which is part of the rationale behind us staying married for 30 years. #Quote by Samuel L. Jackson
Daughter quotes by Hilary Mantel
#55. We shall have to develop a hand signal for "Back off, our prince is fucking this man's daughter." He is surprised the Italians have not done it. #Quote by Hilary Mantel
Daughter quotes by Gail Carriger
#56. Which was why, some six hours later, Alexia Maccon's daughter was born inside the head of an octomaton in the presence of her husband, a comatose werewolf dandy, and a French inventor. #Quote by Gail Carriger
Daughter quotes by Jodi Picoult
#57. Maybe mothers - consciously or subconsciously - repelled their daughters in different ways. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Daughter quotes by Heidi Julavits
#58. I have a daughter who, when younger, possessed no barrier between her emotional self and the outside world. Her emotional insides spilled out all over, and, especially when I was sleep-deprived and probably a little paranoid, this really threatened me. It was as if she were embodying and expressing the insecurities and freaked-outedness I never express, and which I've learned over the years to keep hidden. #Quote by Heidi Julavits
Daughter quotes by T.H. White
#59. The nice thing about the queen of Flanders' daughter, had been that she did not laugh at him. A lot of people laughed at you when you went after the Questing Beast - and never caught it - but Piggy never laughed. She seemed to understand at once how interesting it was, and made several sensible suggestions about the way to trap it. Naturally, one did not pretend to be clever or anything, but it was nice not to be laughed at. One was doing one's best. #Quote by T.H. White
Daughter quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#60. Then out of the blackness in his mind he thought that he heard Dernhelm speaking; yet now the voice seemed strange, recalling some other voice that he had known.

'Begone, foul dwimmerlaik, lord of carrion! Leave the dead in peace!'

A cold voice answered: 'Come not between the Nazgûl and his prey! Or he will slay thee in thy turn. He will bear thee away to the houses of lamentation, beyond all darkness, where thy flesh shall be devoured, and thy shrivelled mind be left naked to the Lidless Eye.'

A sword rang as it was drawn. 'Do what you will; but I will hinder it, if I may.'

'Hinder me? Thou fool. No living man may hinder me!'

Then Merry heard of all sounds in that hour the strangest. It seemed that Dernhelm laughed, and the clear voice was like the ring of steel. 'But no living man am I! You look upon a woman. Éowyn I am, Éomund's daughter. You stand between me and my lord and kin. Begone, if you be not deathless! For living or dark undead, I will smite you, if you touch him. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Daughter quotes by Kate Beckinsale
#61. I grew up as an only child and my mother was also an only child, so we were both very passionate about reading. I think I passed that on to my daughter, who went plowing through 'Harry Potter' and every other book possible! #Quote by Kate Beckinsale
Daughter quotes by Kara Lindsay
#62. I thought, 'OK, Melissa Gilbert is playing my mom, and I'm playing her old role - no pressure.' So I went up to Melissa and said, 'It's such an honor playing your daughter,' and she smiled and said, 'Oh, shut up.' I thought, 'Great, a normal person.' #Quote by Kara Lindsay
Daughter quotes by Cynthia Wicklund
#63. The world wept a silent, windless downpour, a befitting accompaniment to the arrival of death.
However, Lady Brenna Hilliard, only daughter of the late Earl Lundsford, had yet to join in the weeping. Shock and disbelief kept her from the comfort of tears. The torrent would come, she knew, in a wave of sudden grief, but for now her emotions were elusive, too numb to be felt. #Quote by Cynthia Wicklund
Daughter quotes by Amy Tan
#64. I love my daughter. She and I have shared my body. There is a part of her mind that is a part of mine. But when she was born, she sprang from me like a slippery fish, and has been swimming away ever since. #Quote by Amy Tan
Daughter quotes by Tony Curtis
#65. We often don't think of them, we think of the great wars and the great battles, but what about losing a son or a daughter, or a girl losing her husband or vice versa? I think of the people who never got the chance to have the opportunities I had. #Quote by Tony Curtis
Daughter quotes by Natsume Sōseki
#66. I realized that it was not Ko-san, now safely ditched for ever, but Ko-san's mother who stood in need of pity and consideration. She must still live on in this hard unpitying world, but he, once he had jumped [in battle], had jumped beyond such things. The case could well have been different, had he never jumped; but he did jump; and that, as they say, is that. Whether this world's weather turns out fine or cloudy no more worries him; but it matters to his mother. It rains, so she sits alone indoors thinking about Ko-san. And now it's fine, so she potters out and meets a friend of Ko-san's. She hangs out the national flag to welcome the returned soliders, but her joy is made querulous with wishing that Ko-san were alive. At the public bath-house, some young girl of marriageable age helps her to carry a bucket of hot water: but her pleasure from that kindness is soured as she thinks if only I had a daughter-in-law like this girl. To live under such conditions is to live in agonies. Had she lost one out of many children, there would be consolation and comfort in the mere fact of the survivors. But when loss halves a family of just one parent and one child, the damage is as irreparable as when a gourd is broken clean across its middle. There's nothing left to hang on to. Like the sergeant's mother, she too had waited for her son's return, counting on shriveled fingers the passing of the days and nights before that special day when she would be able once more to hang on him. But #Quote by Natsume Sōseki
Daughter quotes by Oscar Eccentric
#67. Who can blame the poor lad for not advertising his rather unique name? Especially when his mother's maiden name is Jewel Diamond Sunrise and his grandmother's is Dawn Moonbeam Sunrise. Dawn Sunrise, such a pretty name. And it is true that your mother was almost named Red Sky Sunrise, but your grandfather said he would divorce her mother if she didn't change it. He was in the navy and thought that it was a bad omen. Red sky in the morning, sailor take warning, you know. And Max's grandmother didn't tell anyone that she considered calling her daughter Sunset Sunrise. Catchy isn't it? #Quote by Oscar Eccentric
Daughter quotes by Nicole Jacquelyn
#68. Her arms tightened around our daughter as if she was afraid I was going to snatch her away. "Get out."

"Katiebear, I'm so sorry."

"I hate you," she whispered, he eyes filling with tears. "I wish you were dead because then I could have my children back."

I stumbled away from the bed, horrified, and watched as she fell asleep as if I'd never even been there.

Jesus Christ, what had I done? #Quote by Nicole Jacquelyn
Daughter quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#69. He still didn't think I was good enough for you."
"No father thinks any man is good enough for his daughter. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Daughter quotes by Vittorio Alfieri
#70. Deep vengeance is the daughter of deep silence. #Quote by Vittorio Alfieri
Daughter quotes by Margaret Of Cortona
#71. My daughter, I see more Pharisees among Christians than there were around Pilate. #Quote by Margaret Of Cortona
Daughter quotes by Jodi Picoult
#72. Once, Lacy had been present at the birth of an infant that was missing half its heart. The family had known their child would not live; they chose to carry through with the pregnancy, in the hope that they could have a few brief moments on this earth with her before she was gone for good. Lacy had stood in a corner of the room as the parents held their daughter. She didn't study their faces; she just couldn't. Instead, she focused on the medical needs of that newborn. She watched it, still and frost-blue, move one tiny fist in slow motion, like an astronaut navigating space. Then, one by one, her fingers unfurled and she let go. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Daughter quotes by Edgar Allan Poe
#73. Science! true daughter of Old Time thou art!
Who alterest all things with thy peering eyes.
Why preyest thou thus upon the poet's heart,
Vulture, whose wings are dull realities?
How should he love thee? or how deem thee wise?
Who wouldst not leave him in his wandering
To seek for treasure in the jewelled skies,
Albeit he soared with an undaunted wing?
Hast thou not dragged Diana from her car?
And driven the Hamadryad from the wood
To seek a shelter in some happier star?
Hast thou not torn the Naiad from her flood,
The Elfin from the green grass, and from me
The summer dream beneath the tamarind tree? #Quote by Edgar Allan Poe
Daughter quotes by Margaret Atwood
#74. I remember Queen Victoria's advice to her daughter. Close your eyes and think of England. #Quote by Margaret Atwood
Daughter quotes by Alessandra Ambrosio
#75. I'm not thinking about me that much anymore. Every time I look, I'm looking for my daughter, you know? If I'm in a store, I'm looking at baby clothes. It's so much cuter to find things for her than to find things for me. #Quote by Alessandra Ambrosio
Daughter quotes by Avijeet Das
#76. A Woman is the first teacher in our life. A woman in the role of a mother, grand-mother, aunt, sister, cousin, girl-friend, wife, sister-in-law, daughter and in any other role always teaches us about loving, caring, and nurturing life and relationships in world. Without women life on Earth would have been annihilated ages ago. Women give birth to and nurture life in Earth! #Quote by Avijeet Das
Daughter quotes by Sarah Bird
#77. I want to go to the mother, take her hand, and tell her that although she and her daughter believe that every bad choice the daughter has ever made in life is her fault, it's not. It's really, really not. #Quote by Sarah Bird
Daughter quotes by Isaiah Mustafa
#78. I hope that my daughter grows up empowered and doesn't define herself by the way she looks but by qualities that make her a intelligent, strong and responsible woman. #Quote by Isaiah Mustafa
Daughter quotes by Stephen Colbert
#79. And my daughter said, 'Why are you yelling at us?' and I said, 'I'm trying to discipline you!' And then she looked up at me with her tear-stained eyes and said, 'This is how you teach children, by making them cry.' And it was such a clenching reminder - she won not only the argument, but she won life with that statement. I just burst out laughing, and I think they were so surprised that I burst out laughing, that they did too. #Quote by Stephen Colbert
Daughter quotes by Sean Maher
#80. When my daughter was born, I was a stay-at-home dad for the first two years. #Quote by Sean Maher
Daughter quotes by Anna Banks
#81. There's nothing wrong with your daughter, Mrs. McIntosh. I said we're not sleeping together. I didn't say I didn't want to. #Quote by Anna Banks
Daughter quotes by Nicholas Sparks
#82. The memories of the day played in his mind, but this time, his thoughts were of his daughter and the way she'd clung to Katie, her little face buried in Katie's neck.
The last time he'd seen that, he reflected, was when Carly had been alive. #Quote by Nicholas Sparks
Daughter quotes by Eileen Granfors
#83. Never mind. Bye, Carmen. Don't go out and get radical or anything.
THE PINATA-MAKER'S DAUGHTER #Quote by Eileen Granfors
Daughter quotes by Lisa Graham McMinn
#84. To limit the ways our daughters can legitimately function as stewards/rulers further devalues the image of God in them and continues the imbalance and distortion of God's plan. #Quote by Lisa Graham McMinn
Daughter quotes by Chandana Roy
#85. She cannot escape marriage; it is her sacred Hindu duty, just as giving her away in marriage was her father's sacred Hindu duty. Like Indian Independence, marriage is her ultimate 'Tryst with Destiny,' and it is not in her hand to escape her preordained and compulsory fate. A marriageable daughter is the lowest common denominator in the giant scheme of things. #Quote by Chandana Roy
Daughter quotes by Dani Shapiro
#86. I had no illusions that now, in some final and dramatic flash of revelation, we would understand one another. We were done. It was a fact of my life
intractable and sad
that our relationship had been a failure. Still, with her prognosis came one last chance to be her daughter. [p. 163] #Quote by Dani Shapiro
Daughter quotes by Kristan Higgins
#87. I'm Jenny Tate. Robert Tate's daughter. Great. I'd sound like an idiot. My name is Inigo Montoya, and you slept with my father. #Quote by Kristan Higgins
Daughter quotes by Atticus Shaffer
#88. I get a lot of people who will either write to me or come up in public and say, "My daughter, son, family, or I, etc. look up to you." #Quote by Atticus Shaffer
Daughter quotes by Blythe Baird
#89. Half daughter,

half apology, all fire and the wrong kind of love. #Quote by Blythe Baird
Daughter quotes by Eden Riegel
#90. One of the first major storylines that 'All My Children' featured was Erica Kane, a rebellious daughter, and her mother, sort of a matriarchal type, who was trying to guide her daughter to a safer place. #Quote by Eden Riegel
Daughter quotes by Kate Madison
#91. I thought of my sweet little girl and her chubby cheeks, big brown eyes and long brown hair with bangs that constantly needed trimming. She was all that really mattered in this world, and I could not keep moping over some guy who came in and out of my life faster than a season of American Idol. #Quote by Kate Madison
Daughter quotes by Chelsea Clinton
#92. For me it's just so exciting to have a daughter because I do think she will have even more opportunities than I had, and I had more opportunities than certainly my grandmother had. It's the arc of history, always bending toward justice and opportunity, and she will be part of that. #Quote by Chelsea Clinton
Daughter quotes by Kathleen Kent
#93. I took a step. And then another. And so it went as we followed Father, who had come to take us forever away from Salem. And with every step I thought of my mother's courage as she faced her judges. With every step I thought of her cleaving to the truth even as she fell the short distance of the rope. With every step I thought of her pride, her strength, her love.
And with every step I thought, I am my mother's daughter, I am my mother's daughter ... #Quote by Kathleen Kent
Daughter quotes by Aristotle.
#94. Patience is so like fortitude that she seems either her sister or her daughter. #Quote by Aristotle.
Daughter quotes by Shannon L. Alder
#95. Satan will always whisper don't care, be silent, you didn't do anything wrong, your better than them, your stronger than your enemies. However, a true daughter or son of God says back: I hurt so I will make it right. I was silent, but now I am ready to listen and share. I am not better because I know what I have done. I am not stronger than my enemies by hating them, but by healing them. #Quote by Shannon L. Alder
Daughter quotes by Burt Ward
#96. I have two children. I have a daughter 29, and a daughter four. They are 25 years apart, so you speak about generations and I must tell you, I have a philosophy and that is every 25 years I'm going to sire another child. #Quote by Burt Ward
Daughter quotes by Giada De Laurentiis
#97. I want my daughter to see a strong woman who goes after what she wants. #Quote by Giada De Laurentiis
Daughter quotes by Robert Graves
#98. Dust in a cloud, blinding weather,
Drums that rattle and roar!
A mother and daughter stood together
Beside their cottage door.

'Mother, the heavens are bright like brass,
The dust is shaken high,
With labouring breath the soldiers pass,
Their lips are cracked and dry.'

'Mother, I'll throw them apples down,
I'll bring them pails of water.'
The mother turned with an angry frown
Holding back her daughter.

'But mother, see, they faint with thirst,
They march away to die,'
'Ah, sweet, had I but known at first
Their throats are always dry.'

'There is no water can supply them
In western streams that flow,
There is no fruit can satisfy them
On orchard trees that grow.'

'Once in my youth I gave, poor fool,
A soldier apples and water,
So may I die before you cool
Your father's drouth, my daughter. #Quote by Robert Graves
Daughter quotes by Anuradha Bhattacharyya
#99. He was sulking. It was natural. If it had been a daughter or son, the parent would have rushed to find out why she or he did not turn up. The parent would have imagined all sorts of harm that might have happened to the beloved child. But a lover always sulks. A lover feels betrayed. A lover feels as if the beloved has deliberately jilted him. #Quote by Anuradha Bhattacharyya
Daughter quotes by Krysten Ritter
#100. I'm sorry," I say, without knowing exactly what I'm sorry for. For your daughter, for her job, for that sophomore behind the Dumpsters, men who get to do anything they want, and the people who are taken advantage of. Because isn't that, ultimately, what the case comes down to? There are people of the world who squeeze and the ones who suffocate. #Quote by Krysten Ritter
Daughter quotes by Pearl S. Buck
#101. No daughter is ever her mother's darling. That spot is always reserved for the son. #Quote by Pearl S. Buck
Daughter quotes by Larissa Ione
#102. You're a pure, holy angel of goodness, and I'm Satan's evil whore of a daughter. So yeah, we can't work. Thanks for pointing that out, Captain Obvious. But we can fuck. #Quote by Larissa Ione
Daughter quotes by Maxine Hong Kingston
#103. Daughters-in-law lived with their husbands' parents, not their own; a synonym for marriage in Chinese is taking a daughter-in-law. #Quote by Maxine Hong Kingston
Daughter quotes by Martin Scorsese
#104. I'm in a different chapter of my life. As time goes by and I grow older, I find that I need to just be quiet and think. There have been periods when I've locked myself away for days, but now it's different - I'm married and we have a daughter who is in my office the whole time. #Quote by Martin Scorsese
Daughter quotes by Jeaniene Frost
#105. I dare because I want no misunderstanding between us. I am everything you think I am, but I love your daughter, and what I love, I protect with all of the violence in me, which, as you've guessed, is considerable. #Quote by Jeaniene Frost
Daughter quotes by Mary Crosby
#106. All of my life people have thought of me as Bing Crosby's daughter. Now they'll remember me as the person who shot J.R. #Quote by Mary Crosby
Daughter quotes by Tahir Shah
#107. Foras Road has a sordid reputation ( ... ) Old crones sat in doorways, while their daughters were pushed out to earn money. It is intriguing that a society which is very covert with sexuality should be so straightforward about prostitution. #Quote by Tahir Shah
Daughter quotes by Brad Meltzer
#108. As I tell my daughter, when you want something in life - no matter how impossible it seems - you need to fight for it. #Quote by Brad Meltzer
Daughter quotes by Bill Halter
#109. My wife Shanti and I are blessed with two wonderful daughters. Nothing is more important to us than protecting their future and the future of every Arkansas child. #Quote by Bill Halter
Daughter quotes by Javier Mascherano
#110. I have no problem living in Liverpool, but I think my wife and daughters deserve to enjoy every day to the full and live their lives - but they have to be at home all day. My wife doesn't speak a word of English, so she depends 100% on me. I live here with them. That's my world, that's my life. #Quote by Javier Mascherano
Daughter quotes by Johannes Kepler
#111. Temporis filia veritas; cui me obstetricari non pudet.
Truth is the daughter of time, and I feel no shame in being her midwife. #Quote by Johannes Kepler
Daughter quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#112. Kami's soul shriveled slightly at the idea of taking romantic action in front of her father, but she was determined to determine this relationship, so she left the doorway and walked over to where Jared was sitting. When he lifted his face to look up at her, she leaned down and kissed him.

"Hi there, dream canoe," she said. She got hold of his arm and sat on his lap, drawing his arm around her - which he allowed, although she supposed the lack of resistance could mean he was in shock - so she had her back to whatever expression he made.

Sadly, she could still see the expression her father was making.

"Do you have any tattoos?" Dad asked Jared suspiciously.

"No!" said Jared, and added hastily, "Sir."

Her father looked like he had further questions for Jared, and Kami did not have high hopes about the answers - history of violence, check; poor academics, check; leather jacket, check; motorcycle, check; despoiling his innocent daughter, no check but not for lack of trying #Quote by Sarah Rees Brennan
Daughter quotes by Allen Ashley
#113. Mosiah 2:22 - "And behold, all that he requires of you is to keep his commandments;" - (My thoughts --->) "This one stuck out to me as like a, duh scripture. I just need to keep the commandments of the Lord. That's all. I just need to read my scriptures, ponder and pray. I just need to be an example and follow the Holy Ghost. I just need to be a Daughter of God. He's just asking that much from us. #Quote by Allen Ashley
Daughter quotes by Dan Gable

#115. What is important is that one utilizes one's intellect and not to be 100 percent sure about one's convictions. One should always leave room for doubt. #Quote by Shirin Ebadi

#116. My mother listened to everything I said, carefully - not that what I said was particularly interesting, but I was her daughter. #Quote by Susan Shreve
Daughter quotes by Amanda Lovelace

Daughter quotes by Derek Landy
#124. Gracious ignored him. "A farmer's daughter, she was, though back then every girl was a farmer's daughter. Or a farmer. She had long hair like rope, and a nose. All her eyes were blue and she had a smile like a radiant hole in the ground, with teeth. God, she was beautiful."
"She sounds terrifying," said Donegan.
"Hush, you. I will hear no bad word spoken of your sister. #Quote by Derek Landy
Daughter quotes by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
#125. As she looked me up and down, I felt like a daughter returning from summer camp to a mother who had worried unnecessarily. Except instead of summer camp it had been my entire adolescence, emancipation, homelessness, and single parenthood, and I couldn't rightly say that Elizabeth's worry had been unwarranted #Quote by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
Daughter quotes by Katherine Center
#126. And it's a girl. And you will love her more than you love yourself. And you'll disappoint her, too - and never live up to the standards you set for yourself. But don't worry. She'll be okay. #Quote by Katherine Center
Daughter quotes by Ian Holloway
#127. I've got four women in my house - my wife and my three daughters - and I tell you what, it's pretty scary. I keep my head down and if we're out shopping I try and look in a man's shop while they make their minds up. #Quote by Ian Holloway
Daughter quotes by Tina Brown
#128. I wish my daughter wasn't spending time thinking of Kim Kardashian or Rihanna. #Quote by Tina Brown
Daughter quotes by Becky Masterman
#129. I've sometimes regretted the women I've been.

There have been so many: daughter, sister, cop, tough broad, several kinds of whore, jilted lover, ideal wife, heroine, killer.

I'll provide the truth of them all, inasmuch as I'm capable of telling the truth.

Keeping secrets, telling lies, they require the same skill. Both become a habit, almost an addiction, that's hard to break even with the people closest to you, out of the business.

They say never trust a woman who tells you her age; if she can't keep that secret, she can't keep yours.

I'm fifty-nine. #Quote by Becky Masterman
Daughter quotes by Devon Monk
#130. What part of you is dead, my daughter?

Daughter quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#131. By the way, I've just learned that Countess Ramsay and her daughter Miss Darvin wish to come for a visit. We received a letter from them earlier today."
"The devil you say!" Leo was outraged. "For what purpose? To gloat? Take inventory? I've still got a year left before they can lay claim to the place."
"Perhaps they wish to make peace and find an acceptable solution for all of us," Win suggested.
Win was always inclined to think the best of people and believe in the essential goodness of human nature. #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Daughter quotes by Astrid Lindgren
#132. Instead, I ask you with all my heart, come back to Matt's fort with us now! It's not because I like you - don't think that, whatever you do! But, my daughter does - I know that now - and perhaps I can learn too. #Quote by Astrid Lindgren
Daughter quotes by Rufus Wainwright
#133. Arguably, the relationship between Liza Minnelli and Judy Garland is one of the great mother-daughter sagas of all time. Certainly, for certain people, and a lot of them, Liza is the bigger star. Liza is the more kind of viable legend, shall we say. Then there's the other camp, where Judy is the one. #Quote by Rufus Wainwright
Daughter quotes by Chris Rock
#134. Whoever you hate will end up in your family. You don't like gays?
You're gonna have a gay son. You don't like Puerto Ricans? Your

Daughter quotes by Lidia Yuknavitch
#135. Where does repressed pain and rage go in a body? Does the wound of daughter turn to something else if left unattended? Does it bloom in the belly like an anti-child, like an organic mass made of emotions that didn't have anywhere to go? How do we name the pain of rage in a woman? Mother? #Quote by Lidia Yuknavitch
Daughter quotes by Chris Hemsworth

Daughter quotes by Laini Taylor
#138. Nwella came up with a silver bowl and a big soft brush, and before Madrigal knew what was happening Nwella had dusted her chest, neck, and shoulders with something that glittered.
"What - ?"
"Sugar," she said, giggling.
"Nwella!" Madrigal tried to brush it off, but it was dust-fine and it clung: sugar powder, which girls wore when they planned to be tasted. If her rose petal lips and naked back were not enough invitation to Thiago, Madrigal thought, this certainly was. Its telltale shimmer might as well have been a sign that said LICK ME. #Quote by Laini Taylor

Daughter quotes by Sharon Shinn
#140. She told me that Melisande had borne a daughter, and that one day . . . one day she would like for us to meet. And so when your father advertised the fact that he was looking for a husband for his daughter - "
"Advertised," she interrupted.
"Oh, yes. Far and wide. Princess. Beautiful. Nubile. Available to big strong man, with even bigger sword." Mickel thumped his chest. "I was intrigued. I was mortified. I thought I would save the daughter of my mother's best friend from a fate worse than death."
"And if I had been a loud mouthed harridan with a taste for garlic and a fear of bathing?"
"I would have been the Warlord everyone thinks I am, tossed her aside like a sack of potatoes in a white wedding dress, and asked for the hand of a peculiar redheaded woman I met on the road."
Sally smiled. "And if she said no?" "Well," Mickel said, kissing her hand. "I may not be the Warlord of the Savage Belly Ache, but I am exceptionally brave. I would fight for her. #Quote by Sharon Shinn
Daughter quotes by Harold Monro
#141. Overheard on a Saltmarsh"

Nymph, nymph, what are your beads?

Green glass, goblin. Why do you stare at them?

Give them me.
No.

Give them me. Give them me.
No.

Then I will howl all night in the reeds,
Lie in the mud and howl for them.

Goblin, why do you love them so?

They are better than stars or water,
Better than voices of winds that sing,
Better than any man's fair daughter,
Your green glass beads on a silver ring.

Hush, I stole them out of the moon.

Give me your beads, I want them.
No.

I will howl in the deep lagoon
For your green glass beads, I love them so.
Give them me. Give them.
No. #Quote by Harold Monro
Daughter quotes by Kavipriya Moorthy
#142. Women are not the weaker sex, even after experiencing
such pain, they still have the capacity to get up and walk,regardless of how long it would take. Men on the contrary,
though they look a lot stronger, wiser, and meaner and of
course, masculine, are not really strong enough when it comes
to their children, especially a daughter. No matter what she
does, no matter how rude or soft she is, the daughter would
come first, then the rest of the world. #Quote by Kavipriya Moorthy
Daughter quotes by Sarah Bird
#143. At almost any time in the past sixteen years, hearing him admit how much the sound of my voice, even channeled through our daughter, still affected him would have felt like winning. Today, it's close to irrelevant. #Quote by Sarah Bird
Daughter quotes by Gretchen Rubin
#144. Some kind of clutter is difficult - letting go of things with sentimental value, sifting through papers - but some clutter I find very refreshing to clear. I drive my daughters nuts because I'm always wandering into their rooms to clear clutter. #Quote by Gretchen Rubin
Daughter quotes by Peggy Orenstein
#145. It's particularly important as parents in our conversations with our daughters and our sons to consider ideas intimate justice when we talk about and set them going on their early formative experience. #Quote by Peggy Orenstein
Daughter quotes by Virginia Woolf
#146. Without self awareness we are as babies in the cradles. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Daughter quotes by Dallin H. Oaks
#147. The greatest power God has given to His sons cannot be exercised without the companionship of one of his daughters, because only to his daughters has God given the power to be a creator of bodies so that God's design and the great plan might meet fruition. #Quote by Dallin H. Oaks
Daughter quotes by Lisa Gardner
#148. I could stay in every night for the rest of my life and my mother still wouldn't be happy. In fact, maybe she'd be better off if I finally did go out and meet a grand demise. Get the waiting game over with. Because, as my mother will tell you, there are worse things than having your daughter abducted. There's getting her back and realizing you've lost her after all. #Quote by Lisa Gardner
Daughter quotes by Anthony Doerr
#149. That's how he feels right now, he thinks, kneeling beside her, rinsing her hair: as though his love for his daughter will outstrip the limits of his body. The walls could fall away, even the whole city, and the brightness of that feeling would not wane. #Quote by Anthony Doerr
Daughter quotes by Hugh Hefner
#150. One of the problems with organized religion is that it has always kept women in a second-class position. They have been viewed as the daughters of Eve. #Quote by Hugh Hefner

Daughter quotes by Amanda Scott
#154. Prithee, sir," Ian said, controlling his impatience, "tell us what Dougal said."
"He said he'd tell the world that he's had his way with our Lina, even shared her with his men. Och, but I wanted to hang him from the tree outside me gate right then! In short, if Dougal canna have her, he'll murder her reputation. So, in my fury, I've condemned my daughter to the sad future of an unmarried, unwanted woman. A future in which others will revile her, if Dougal has his say. Och, I'm a villain m'self to do such a vile thing. Mayhap I should think more on it, unless . . ."
He looked at Rob, who stared silently, blankly back at him.
After a glance at Ian, Andrew chose a point midway between the two men and said with a slight, self-deprecating shrug, "I dinna suppose ye'd . . . either o' ye . . . be willing to marry the poor lassie and save her from such a dreadful fate."
Ian saw the pit yawning before him, but he barely heeded it. Having saved Lina from one wretched fate, he did not want to watch her fall victim to another.
Impulsively, he said, "I . . . I'd be willing to give the idea some thought, sir."
"Good lad," Andrew said cheerfully. "I'll let ye have her. #Quote by Amanda Scott

#155. I don't know what happened to your parents or why they did what they did. But in all the world, I could have wished for no daughter than you". #Quote by John Stephens
Daughter quotes by Nancy E. Turner
#156. Mama said it's probably because of Suzanne, and that you are never the same after a child dies. That made me wonder what she was like before Clover died, because I don't think I really knew my own mother until I had children, and if she was different before, I don't remember. #Quote by Nancy E. Turner
Daughter quotes by Tara Janzen
#157. The man in 4B wondered if he could have your autograph. He told me his daughter is a huge fan.
Fan? What the hell? Dylan lifted himself up and looked over the back of his seat. Since when did covert operators have fans? #Quote by Tara Janzen
Daughter quotes by Jerome Bixby
#158. Was raised on the Torah, my wife on the Qu'Ran, my eldest son is an Atheist, my youngest is a scientologist, my daughter is studying Hinduism, I imagine there is room there for a holy war in my living room, but we practice live and let live. #Quote by Jerome Bixby
Daughter quotes by Cornell Woolrich
#159. The sun goes down and it's night-time in New Orleans. The moon rises, midnight chimes from St. Louis cathedral, and hardly has the last note died away than a gruesome swampland whistle sounds outside the deathly still house. A fat Negress, basket on arm, comes trudging up the stairs a moment later, opens the door, goes in to the papaloi, closes it again, traces an invisible mark on it with her forefinger and kisses it. Then she turns and her eyes widen with surprise. Papa Benjamin is in bed, covered up to the neck with filthy rags. The familiar candles are all lit, the bowl for the blood, the sacrificial knife, the magic powders, all the paraphernalia of the ritual are laid out in readiness, but they are ranged about the bed instead of at the opposite end of the room as usual.

The old man's head, however, is held high above the encumbering rags, his beady eyes gaze back at her unflinchingly, the familiar semicircle of white wool rings his crown, his ceremonial mask is at his side. 'I am a little tired, my daughter,' he tells her. His eyes stray to the tiny wax image of Eddie Bloch under the candles, hairy with pins, and hers follow them. 'A doomed one, nearing his end, came here last night thinking I could be killed like other men. He shot a bullet from a gun at me. I blew my breath at it, it stopped in the air, turned around, and went back in the gun again. But it tired me to blow so hard, strained my voice a little.'

A revengeful gleam lights up the #Quote by Cornell Woolrich
Daughter quotes by Ian Bogost
#160. My daughter showed us the key: misery gives way to fun when you take an object, event, situation, or scenario that wasn't designed for you, that isn't invested in you, that isn't concerned in the slightest for your experience of it, and then treat it as if it were. ...this is what play means. #Quote by Ian Bogost
Daughter quotes by Kristin Cavallari
#161. I'm just happy that I'll have someone to give all my shoes to! I'll have someone to take over everything. It's funny because I'm having a lot of fun buying clothes for my daughter. She already has shoes for when she's a size eight. She's covered for a while. #Quote by Kristin Cavallari
Daughter quotes by Benjamin Carson
#162. But, you know, when I look at somebody like Hillary Clinton, who sits there and tells her daughter and a government official that no, this was a terrorist attack, and then tells everybody else that it was a video. Where I came from, they call that a lie. #Quote by Benjamin Carson
Daughter quotes by Kellyn Roth
#163. I love Alice more than life itself, but I can't keep her hidden forever. #Quote by Kellyn Roth
Daughter quotes by Susan B. Anthony
#164. We ask justice, we ask equality, we ask that all the civil and political rights that belong to citizens of the United States, be guaranteed to us and our daughters forever. #Quote by Susan B. Anthony
Daughter quotes by Janice G. Raymond
#165. An unmentored daughter is an unnurtured daughter, unnurtured in the strength she needs to Survive as an original woman in this world. Daughters, as compared to sons in a hetero-relational family, are more undernurtured in all ways by mothers and pressured prematurely to become nurturers of others - mostly of men. What also happens in this context, as Denice Yanni has pointed out, is "a silencing of woman's own needs for nurturing by making her the primary nurturer. #Quote by Janice G. Raymond
Daughter quotes by Amanda Scott
#166. Meeting Andrew's steady gaze, Ian said, "Did you really tell Dougal that you would see him and Pharlain in hell before you would let Lina marry him?"
"I did, aye. After he made his vile threats, I also told him I'd gut him and feed his entrails to the beasts o' the forest here afore I'd give him our Lina." He added mildly, "I think the man understands that I didna like the notion."
Hearing a strange sound from Rob, Ian darted a glance at him to see that his friend had clapped a hand to his mouth. Above it, his eyes twinkled merrily.
"Did you just laugh?" Ian demanded.
Rob shook his head, lowering his hand, and eyes still atwinkle, said, "I choked." Extending a hand to Andrew, he said, "It is an honor to know you, sir."
"Aye, good, for I've one more daughter t' marry off, ye ken - our Muriella. She's a mite young yet, her mam says. But if ye'd be interested . . ."
Sobering instantly, Rob said, "You do me great honor, my lord, and I thank you. But I'll not inflict myself so on any female at present."
Andrew gave him a long look but said no more on the subject of Muriella.
Instead, he turned to Ian and said, "Shall we send for our Lina and tell her the good news, lad? Or d'ye need me to tell ye what a rare prize the lassie is, so ye can think more on the notion?"
Ian's thoughts had flown to Lina's likely reaction to the "good news." She would scarcely receive it as such. #Quote by Amanda Scott
Daughter quotes by Tim McGraw
#167. I coach my daughter's softball and basketball team. We go to all the school functions. We go out to eat at night and take the kids to the movies. We try to be as normal as we can. #Quote by Tim McGraw
Daughter quotes by Debasish Mridha
#168. Oh! You are a woman! You are the pure reflection of my mother, sister, and daughter. I can never hurt you. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Daughter quotes by Nadia Bolz-Weber
#169. From my father I heard only these words: "But you were born for such a day as this." He closed the book and my mother joined him in embracing me. They prayed over me and they gave me a blessing. And some blessings, like the one my conservative Christian parents gave to their soon-to-be-Lutheran pastor daughter who had put them through hell, are the kind of blessings that stay with you for the rest of your life. The kind you can't speak of without crying all over again. #Quote by Nadia Bolz-Weber
Daughter quotes by Phyllis Chesler
#170. Women must begin to "save" themselves and their daughters before they "save" their husbands and their sons; before they "save" the whole world. #Quote by Phyllis Chesler
Daughter quotes by Honore De Balzac
#171. Emulation is not rivalry. Emulation is the child of ambition; rivalry is the unlovable daughter of envy. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Daughter quotes by Adrienne Rich
#172. Our personalities seem dangerously to blur and overlap with our mother's; and, in a desperate attempt to know where mother ends and daughter begins, we perform radical surgery. #Quote by Adrienne Rich
Daughter quotes by Gene Stratton-Porter
#173. The swamp had sent back the soul of her loved dead and put it into the body of the daughter she resented, and it was almost more than she could endure and live. #Quote by Gene Stratton-Porter
Daughter quotes by Craig Johnson
#174. I don't like funerals, and a while ago I just stopped going to them. I think the ceremony is a form of denial, and when my wife died and my daughter, Cady, informed me that she was unaware of any instance where going to somebody's funeral ever brought them back, I just about gave it up. #Quote by Craig Johnson
Daughter quotes by Bunmi Laditan
#175. dear mother,

Daughter quotes by Donald Miller
#176. The night after we talked, Jason couldn't sleep. He thought about the story his daughter was living and the role she was playing inside that story. He realized he hadn't provided a better role for his daughter. He hadn't mapped out a story for his family. And so his daughter had chosen another story, a story in which she was wanted, even if she was only being used. In the absence of a family story, she'd chosen a story in which there was risk and adventure, rebellion and independence. "She's not a bad girl," my friend said. "She was just choosing the best story available to her." I pictured his daughter flipping through the channels of life, as it were, stopping on a story that seemed most compelling at the moment, a story that offered her something, anything, because people can't live without a story, without a role to play. "So how did you get her out of it? #Quote by Donald Miller
Daughter quotes by Hillary Rodham Clinton
#177. Came to deeply regret giving President Bush the benefit of the doubt on that vote. He later asserted that the resolution gave him the sole authority to decide when the clock had run out on weapons inspections. On March 20, 2003, he decided that it had, and he launched the war, with the UN weapons inspectors pleading for just a few more weeks to finish the job. Over the years that followed, many Senators came to wish they had voted against the resolution. I was one of them. As the war dragged on, with every letter I sent to a family in New York who had lost a son or daughter, a father or mother, my mistake became more painful. #Quote by Hillary Rodham Clinton
Daughter quotes by Katie MacAlister
#178. I have to say that you're the last person I'd have expected would have a seventeen-year-old daughter. You're so ... " Alice stopped, suddenly looking guilty.
"Dashing?" Gunner supplied. "Debonair?"
"A bit of a dawg, actually. #Quote by Katie MacAlister
Daughter quotes by Lee Grant
#179. From the time she was born, until she was fifteen, I didn't know where I left off and she began. We were joined at the hip or the heart or the brain. #Quote by Lee Grant
Daughter quotes by Euripides

Daughter quotes by P. Carey Reid
#181. She seems very calm, but that bothers me all the more. I'm horrified that she might be accepting of a life that relegates her to empty corner tables, that my daughter might be making do with a minimum of joy. #Quote by P. Carey Reid
Daughter quotes by Klaus Mikaelson
#182. We were innocent once. This bloodlust was forced upon us by our parents, turning us from prey to predator. We are the demons lurking in the shadow, We are the savage villains in fairy tales told to children. But not for my child. Not for Hope. In her story, we are the knights in shining armour. Without you by my side, I don't think I can survive my own love for my daughter. I need you. I need you, brother. The monster in me can only be checked by the monster in you. Only together can we defeat our demons and save our family. #Quote by Klaus Mikaelson
Daughter quotes by Robert Jordan
#183. To marry the Daughter of the Nine Moons!" "To die and live again, and live once more a part of what was!" "To give up half the light of the world to save the world! #Quote by Robert Jordan
Daughter quotes by L.R.W. Lee
#184. Emily Ferrin." The sovereign glanced about, as if expecting objections. When none came he continued, "Three years ago she married a man named Fred Smithson. They live in a different land, the land of LakeHillsTexas. They have a one-year-old daughter, Madison. My sources tell me Emily wants to have another child." "You're going outside the bounds of Oomaldee? This is crazy! How'd she even get there?" fired Sine Ster. #Quote by L.R.W. Lee

Daughter quotes by Heidi Baker
#188. To be a son or daughter of God also means you are royalty. This is the greatest of privileges, but it is also an awesome responsibility. If you are truly thankful to God and want to please Him with all your heart, you must do more than just recognize your own authority. You must use it. He asks you to give love as freely as you have received it - not just to those who deserve it but also to everyone He puts in front of you. #Quote by Heidi Baker
Daughter quotes by Erin Hunter
#189. Silverkit took a step forward and peered past him at Oakheart, who was standing on the far side of the clearing, watching them. Then she stared up at Crookedstar, her bright blue eyes shimmering. She was so like her mother - and like him, too, in the shape of her ears and the length of her tail. Crookedstar gazed down at her, feeling a lifetime of hope open up in front of him. For the first time that day he felt the warmth of the sun. Watch over us, Willowbreeze. We still need you.
"You're really just training?" Silverkit mewed. "Do you promise?"
"I promise." Crookedstar ached with joy. "I'm your father, Silverkit, and that means I will always keep my promises. #Quote by Erin Hunter

#190. I have a daughter and she's the greatest thing that ever happened to me. She gives me a good excuse to watch cartoons. #Quote by Green Day
Daughter quotes by Dean Koontz
#191. In real life during the last decade of the twentieth century, Rumpelstiltskin would probably get the queen's daughter. He would no doubt addict her to heroin, turn her out as a prostitute, confiscate her earnings, beat her for pleasure, hack her to pieces, and escape justice by claiming that society's intolerance for bad-tempered, evil-minded trolls had driven him temporarily insane. #Quote by Dean Koontz
Daughter quotes by Michelle Obama
#192. Investing in girls' education is the very best thing we can do, not just for our daughters and granddaughters, but for their families, their communities, and their countries. #Quote by Michelle Obama

Daughter quotes by Walter Savage Landor
#194. Justice is often pale and melancholy; but Gratitude, her daughter, is constantly in the flow of spirits and the bloom of loveliness. #Quote by Walter Savage Landor
Daughter quotes by R.A. Salvatore
#195. I am sorry, was all Drizzt could quietly mouth.
Vierna shook her head, refusing any apology. To Drizzt, it seemed as if that buried part of her that was Zaknafein Do'Urden's daughter approved of this ending. #Quote by R.A. Salvatore
Daughter quotes by Madonna Ciccone
#196. I do think that the birth of my daughter was sort of a rebirth for me. It made me look at life in a completely new way. And that made me appreciate life in a way I don't think I ever had before. #Quote by Madonna Ciccone
Daughter quotes by Elyse Fitzpatrick
#197. The depressed don't simply need to feel better. They need a Redeemer who says, "Take heart, my son, my daughter; what you really need has been supplied. Life no longer need be about your goodness, success, righteousness, or failure. I've given you something infinitely more valuable than good feelings: your sins are forgiven." #Quote by Elyse Fitzpatrick
Daughter quotes by Nikita Gill
#198. you are a Daughter of the Sun, / And you belong only to yourself, not to this world. #Quote by Nikita Gill
Daughter quotes by Helen A. Rosburg
#199. One of the best things about being [joyfully] retired is the freedom to travel when I want. When my son and daughter-in-law asked me to stay at their house for a week to house-sit while they were away on vacation, I had the freedom to do it. #Quote by Helen A. Rosburg
Daughter quotes by John Irving
#200. They were childless - Dan Needham suggested that their sexual roles might be so "reversed" as to make childbearing difficult - and their attendance at Little League games was marked by a constant disapproval of the sport: that little girls were not allowed to play in the Little League was an example of sexual stereotyping that exercised the Dowlings' humorlessness and fury. Should they have a daughter, they warned, she would play in the Little League. They were a couple with a theme - sadly, it was their only theme, and a small theme, and they overplayed it, but a young couple with such a burning mission was quite interesting to the generally slow, accepting types who were more typical in Gravesend. Mr. Chickering, our fat coach and manager, lived in dread of the day the Dowlings might produce a daughter. Mr. Chickering was of the old school - he believed that only boys should play baseball, and that girls should watch them play, or else play soft-ball. #Quote by John Irving
