A daughter is a treasure and a cause of sleeplessness.
Never grow a wishbone, daughter, where your backbone ought to be.
Every day is Father’s Day to me when I’m with her: when I’ll be able to hold my daughter and see her grow and see her smile. That’s Father’s Day to me every day.
When I come home, my daughter will run to the door and give me a big hug, and everything that’s happened that day just melts away.
Certain is it that there is no kind of affection so purely angelic as of a father to a daughter. In love to our wives there is desire; to our sons, ambition; but to our daughters, there is something which there are no words to express.
“I am strong. I am beautiful. I am enough.”
“The question isn’t who’s going to let me; it’s who’s going to stop me.” –Ayn Rand, novelist
Absolutely, I don’t believe in rules. As I tell my daughter when she is mischievous, ‘Well-behaved women rarely make history.’
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.
I will let my daughter do whatever her heart wants. I will support her and guide her and give her all the knowledge that I have because I want her to succeed in whatever she loves.
Who can describe the transports of a beam truly parental on beholding a daughter shoot up like some fair and modest flower, and acquire, day after day, fresh beauty and growing sweetness, so as to fill every eye with pleasure and every heart with admiration?
“Be happy for what you have while working for what you want.”
“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” –Mae West, actress
“It’s never to late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you’re proud of, and if you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start over.”
“You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.” –Lucille Ball, comedian and actress
“The most effective way to do it, is to do it.”
Our daughters are the most precious of our treasures, the dearest possessions of our homes and the objects of our most watchful love.
We gotta start teaching our daughters to be somebodies instead of somebody’s.
My daughter is the biggest gift; I’ve said it so many times and it sounds like a cliche, but the thing about being a parent is when you think you’ve cracked it, and you’re on top of your game, they change again and you have to catch up and adjust. I feel such a responsibility to instill good values in her, to be polite, to have discipline.
Women are in a position now to voice their opinion… women are getting empowered. The more power they get, the more voice they get to shift certain things around. Now I have a daughter, I understand. When I didn’t have a daughter, I didn’t understand.
“Well-behaved women seldom ever make history.”
I’ve come to understand that art is awesome and beautiful because it’s a reflection of life – but it’s just a reflection, and the real thing is my daughter.
