Martie Maguire
I invest in funds myself even though I run my own fund for my daughters.

Meg Cabot

What’s really fun is seeing mothers bringing their daughters to the shows. And the best part is the mothers know they don’t have to worry about sexual innuendo in the songs. The shows are family shows.

I met my darling wife Wilnelia in 1980 when we were on the judging panel for the Miss World contest at the Royal Albert Hall.

Mumtaz
My two daughters have grown up with the same freedoms and opportunities as their male cousins; we must aspire for that to be every girl’s reality.

Obiageli Ezekwesili
I am a far better grandmother than I was a mother. My daughters would back me up on this. As a mother I was busy, preoccupied and obsessive about John and my life with him. My children got overlooked. But my grandchildren never get overlooked.

My vision is that I’m living to see two more daughters get married, dance at their weddings and then lift the Lombardi Trophy several times.
Chuck Pagano
I think people feel threatened by homosexuality. The pr

I think people feel threatened by homosexuality. The problem isn’t about gay people, the problem is about the attitude towards gay people. People think that all gays are Hannibal Lecters. But gay people are sons and daughters, politicians and doctors, American heroes and daughters of American heroes.

I feel more and more, every day of my life, how much my dear mamma has done for my establishment. I was the youngest of all her daughters, and she has treated me as if I were the eldest, so that my whole soul is filled with the most tender gratitude.
Marie Antoinette
I think the very idea of character, of developing not just grit, but empathy and curiosity, emotional intelligence – you know, the things that I want my own daughters to develop – the idea that we’re going to get there through rewards and punishments seems completely at odds with the idea of character itself.

Robert Burns
I love our daughters more than anything in the world – more than life itself. And while that may not be the first thing that some folks want to hear from an Ivy-league-educated lawyer, it is truly who I am. So for me, being Mom-in-Chief is, and always will be, job number one.
Michelle Obama
That’s one reason I really love ‘Supergirl.’ It’s a great show for people to watch with their children – sons and daughters alike. It features strong female characters which is always something to appreciate.
Eve Torres
Parents are sometimes a little more passionate about their sons and daughters.

Rosemary Mahoney
My husband does love women. He has four daughters, a sister, a mother he is very close to, and loves to hang out with my friends and me. Never is he inappropriate in any way, shape, or form.

Kumar Sanu
I grew up Catholic and still feel a lot of Catholic guilt. But my wife is not religious so we’re not raising our daughters religiously.
Bert Kreischer
An oligarchy of race, where the Saxon rules the African, might be endured; but this oligarchy of sex which makes father, brothers, husband, sons, the oligarchs over the mother and sisters, the wife and daughters of every household… carries discord and rebellion into every home of the nation.
Susan B. Anthony
It breaks my heart that I don’t see my daughters every day, don’t get to hug them and brush their hair.
Angie Harmon
I would say that one of the things that encouraged me s

I would say that one of the things that encouraged me so much when I became elected to the leadership was the letters I received from fathers of daughters, saying that, ‘My daughter can now do many more things because of what you did.’
Nancy Pelosi
We know, from our mothers, our sisters, our daughters, our friends, that our strength comes – female strength – comes in all kinds of forms.
Niki Caro
It’s the moms of this nation – single, married, widowed – who really hold this country together. We’re the mothers, we’re the wives, we’re the grandmothers, we’re the big sisters, we’re the little sisters, we’re the daughters. You know it’s true, don’t you? You’re the ones who always have to do a little more.
Ann Romney
I am shamed to realize that in my marriage, my daughters never heard their father and me fight, which also meant, perhaps, that we didn’t truly communicate.
Sandra Tsing Loh
I was extremely close to my dad. I think all daughters are very, very close. But I’m the youngest in the family and I think I was my father’s pet. So I was the closest to my dad.
Tulsi Kumar
I’m a ‘Power of Now’ kind of guy, always have been. I don’t really hang on to a lot of pictures. I have pictures of my daughters.
Art Alexakis
I have two daughters.
Asghar Farhadi
My own life values were shaped in great part by my mother, who instigated women’s clubs in my village. Women were able to organize and stand together. What inspired me most about their work was the power it gave them to assert their rights and the rights of their daughters, be it education or property inheritance.
Winnie Byanyima
I am a father to three daughters and I understand what they have to face everyday.
Ravi Kishan
I have three daughters. I wanted them to be raised where there are real seasons and where everyone their age wasn’t trying to get into movies.
Chevy Chase
Both Aishwaryaa and Soundarya are talented and ambitious. They are both daughters of the Superstar and have great command over their craft.
Dhanush
I too have daughters, and it saddens me that people think of daughters as a burden.
Milkha Singh
Most of the parents in India, especially in smaller towns, fear for daughters due to the inhuman treatment meted out to them. They want her to go away, saying, ‘You’re not my responsibility anymore.’ I don’t understand: why don’t we nurture our girls?
Aditi Rao Hydari
Boys used to call me Soda in school days. Soda means ‘serving officers daughters association.’ I miss those days when I had a very protected life: one could get close and bond with other army people that they gradually would become your extended family.
Anushka Sharma
It’s the moms who are overaggressive. A lot of times their daughters are very sweet and cordial, and the moms tend to grab you and scream and want to kiss you. You gotta watch out for the moms.
Zac Efron
All fatherhood is very important because single mothers shouldn’t have to raise sons or daughters; they need that help.
Nas
It’s very important for feminism for us to tell our daughters that they should be strong. But to tell our sons that they can be vulnerable, to have these characters on screen that are not perfectly masculine cowboys that never fail, for our boys to change their psyche as well, that’s equally important for feminism.
Chloe Zhao
I don’t know so much about my boys, but my girls, they all work with me. They know how to work. My daughters know it’s not done till it’s done, even if it’s three or four in the morning. I don’t want them to grow up with entitlement.
Marie Osmond
We have three daughters, our own. And, of course, there’s nothing more frightening than something bad happening to them. And also, the thought of our children turning bad in some ways is another frightening thought.
Alexander Ahndoril
My daughters are very precious to me.
Shahid Afridi
I think about my own sons and my own daughters, and I’m sure that many parents are concerned about what their children are exposed to.
Billy Graham
Mothers don’t let your daughters grow up to be models unless you’re present.
Janice Dickinson
I’m grateful for my daughters, Hilary, Natalie and Claire. Whenever I think of the future, I see their faces. They inspire me.
Roy Cooper
As an actor I can’t think of what my daughter will think when she grows up. I will never do certain kinds of roles that I have in my mind. And for that I’m sure my daughters are going to be proud of me.
Jisshu Sengupta
Just as our forefathers saved and invested to build what we, the current generation, are enjoying today, so, too, we must plant trees so that our sons and daughters, and their sons and daughters, can enjoy the shade.
Lee Hsien Loong
I have 5 teenage daughters, and I learned the hard way – it’s difficult to talk to any person under the age of 25 without the presence of a cell phone.
Marc Ostrofsky
As the highest-ranking Republican woman in the U.S. House of Representatives and the mom of two daughters, I believe if we’re serious as a nation about empowering every American to pursue his or her own dreams, then true cases of gender discrimination need to be confronted.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers
To me, I have my friends who I’ve known my whole life, and I can count them on one hand. They’re people I went to school with, my mum’s friends’ daughters. You know?
Rita Ora
Of our seven children, five are at ABC Supply. The three older daughters went to college. The boys went into construction, and I wasn’t disappointed they didn’t go to college.
Diane Hendricks
As I’ve told my three daughters, all of whom I’ve at one time encouraged to go into macro trading, any man or woman can do anything to which they set their heart and mind.
Paul Tudor Jones
It’s the kind of clothes that mothers and daughters can wear, in terms of concept… It’s not about age. It’s about taste, and it’s about lifestyle. I believe women of all ages can wear anything.
Ralph Lauren
I have two extraordinary daughters, who, I can say prou

I have two extraordinary daughters, who, I can say proudly, are doing very well in school and in piano. Daughters are a father’s joy.
James McGreevey
We must work together to save and strengthen Social Security not just for my father’s generation but also for my daughters’ generation.
John Thune
I like human stories. I like stories about situations we can relate to. I like movies like ‘Ordinary People’ or ‘Terms of Endearment.’ Mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, boyfriends, girlfriends. The stories to me that are worth telling are almost simple ones, but very relatable.
Chris Evans
My dad is an electrical engineer. So he was always very focused on, you know, teaching his daughters about, you know, science, math, technology. None of us actually became engineers for our careers, but I always had that exposure when I was young, and I just loved playing computer games.
Kristen Soltis Anderson
I may not be able to lead my daughters to the altar when they marry, but I know they are in good hands, and all of them.
Stefan Karl Stefansson
My first three-sisters novel in a while, ‘Sandcastles’ tells the story of the Sullivan family – two passionate artists and their three wildly different daughters. There’s also a renegade nun and a mystery man, but I don’t want to give too much away!
Luanne Rice
I’m a father with two daughters, and I don’t want them to feel that they have to go and work in China when they are older.
Joe Kaeser
I had lived with my mother in anger and love – I suppose most daughters do – but my children only knew her in one way: As the lady who thought they were smarter than Albert Einstein. As the lady who thought they wrote better than William Shakespeare. As the lady who thought every picture they drew was a Rembrandt.
Judith Viorst
Both my daughters scold me. I am the youngest in my family.
Jisshu Sengupta
I have a very interesting story to tell, and people always want to hear about it. They know I’m a 9/11 widow, and I always get comments on that and being an actor and raising my daughters by myself.
LaChanze
Feeling good about yourself and your life is very important. I’m a happy woman, happy with my husband, my daughters, my grandchildren. We all get along quite well, and that keeps me centered.
Carolina Herrera
Both my sons are dyslexic, and so, too, in a much milder form, is one of my daughters.
Theo Paphitis
I think it’s time that we all be there for the children, to learn from the ones who came before us, and to teach our sons and daughters to have respect for themselves. Break the cycle.
Ja Rule
I think that the story of mothers and daughters is so universal.
Tamlyn Tomita
I took my daughters to see Plastic Ono Band at the Orpheum in L.A. in 2012. It was an amazing experience because she is such a revolutionary artist. Everybody was like, ‘Oh, it’s Yoko, it’s such a joke.’ But it’s no joke what she did, visually and musically. It’s incredible.
Pamela Adlon
I haven’t lived my life through my daughters. Some parents devote everything to their children, which must be so hard, and it’s very beautiful. But I’m a working parent, so I’ve always kept my own life.
Annie Lennox
Mothers and daughters find in each other the source of great comfort but also of great pain. We talk to each other in better and worse ways than we talk to anyone else.
Deborah Tannen
It’s a merger of home life and work life. They aren’t that separate, I must confess, and my daughters know an awful lot about childcare reform now because of it.
Liz Truss
I’m concerned about the insidious influence of the media’s bad messages that undermine the lessons parents try to instill in their sons and daughters.
John Ratzenberger
‘Daughters of Britannia’ is a fascinating book, not least because it shines a light on a very dark corner of Foreign Office dealings. Diplomatic spouses are the Aunt Sallys of the foreign service: responsible for nearly everything, recognised for almost nothing.
Amanda Foreman
The anxiety of most parents in seeing their sons and daughters enlist does not lie only in the fear of the physical dangers they may encounter.
William Lyon Mackenzie King
To be able to take the next generation, my daughters and my granddaughters, to better understand and respect the people in the Outback and experience the wonders of our country, would definitely be one of my favourite duties.
Gina Rinehart
The most astonishing subset of the Deep Web is a collection of dark alleys called the Dark Web. The Dark Web is generally thought of as a collection of criminal elements intent on subverting the law, stealing our money, and possibly kidnapping our daughters.
John McAfee
I grew up in a makeup chair. And to see the women around me getting ready was so aspirational. It’s about mothers and daughters, a girl watching her mom at a vanity table.
Drew Barrymore
A new model of business and economic development must ensure everybody’s sons and daughters are treated as we would expect for our own.
Sharan Burrow
I tell my daughters, ‘If something doesn’t feel right, whether that’s going to a party, doing a video, shooting something, you’re around someone that’s creeping you out, use your gut. If you’re in a car with a driver and something don’t feel right, use your gut.’
Bret Michaels
I cohabited for 20 years with my longtime husband and father of my two now-teen daughters in a stable family household.
Sandra Tsing Loh
Just because marriage didn’t work for us doesn’t mean we don’t believe in the institution. Just because our own marital track records are mixed doesn’t mean our hearts don’t lift at the sight of our daughters’ Tiffany-blue wedding invitations.
Sandra Tsing Loh
My youngest son, who is now the drummer in my band, lives in Brooklyn. My oldest son is about to move out to California, and my daughters are both out of town.
Herbie Mann
I gotta say, as the father of two beautiful young daughters, I consider myself the luckiest man on the face of the earth.
Steve Schirripa
Grateful daughters of God guard their bodies carefully, for they know they are the wellsprings of life, and they reverence life. They don’t uncover their bodies to find favor with the world. They walk in modesty to be in favor with their Father In Heaven. They know he loves them dearly.
Margaret D. Nadauld
The moment we put an end to speculation in land, we put

The moment we put an end to speculation in land, we put an end to making money at the expense of our sons and daughters.
Moshe Kahlon
Football is multigenerational. It used to be about fathers taking their sons. Now we’re taking our daughters, too.
Steve Tisch
You don’t want to wear any styles that are too young… I try to still dress glamorously, but not like my daughters.
Jerry Hall
At every Christmas, I fail to remember the daughters’ shoe sizes, and they are not growing, but grown. After ostensible hard thought about who needs what, I have failed to give good gifts; I have failed to receive good gifts.
Padgett Powell
As a result of Title IX, and a new generation of parents who want their daughters to have the opportunities they never had, women’s sports have arrived.
Sheryl Swoopes
My mother gets told, ‘Oh, you’re so lucky that your daughters are doing so well.’ She never corrects anybody when they assume Helen is her daughter.
Bonnie Hunt
My husband has an outstanding record in promoting opportunity for women and the women that he surrounds himself in his staff and the women that he has promoted throughout his career. He’s the father of three daughters. He’s obviously a husband who’s been very supportive of a very active wife with her own career.
Elaine Chao
My wrestling and family go together. It’s always been that way, from day one with my mom and dad, my sister, my wife, four daughters, grandsons, son-in-laws.
Dan Gable
Two dads have sent me letters that said my books changed their daughters’ lives. I send them packages with T-shirts and posters because, come on… that’s the coolest.
Simone Elkeles
In most superhero shows, the superhero is pretty young. He’s in his 20s; he’s single. ‘Black Lightning’ is a man who’s middle-aged, going through a divorce, and has two daughters.
Nafessa Williams
Today, Arizona’s sons and daughters, mothers and fathers are proudly serving their country.
Jane D. Hull
It’s what I tell my daughters: Know that your birthright is to shine your light, and don’t let anybody deny you of that right. Take responsibility for your life.
Kimberly Elise
Superstition is to religion what astrology is to astronomy the mad daughter of a wise mother. These daughters have too long dominated the earth.
Voltaire
People think I have courage. The courage in my family are my wife Pam, my three daughters, here, Nicole, Jamie, LeeAnn, my mom, who’s right here too.
Jim Valvano
We cannot ensure that women will be free of discrimination in the workplace and everywhere as long as women are not universally defended under our Constitution. As it stands now, the equal rights of women are subject to interpretation of law. That is a risk our mothers, sisters and daughters cannot afford.
Carolyn Maloney
I am a museum curator when I am not on the television and in our collection at Kensington Palace we have a book like Marie Antoinette’s, which belonged to the daughters of George III.
Lucy Worsley
I wrote ‘Marvels,’ which was about a guy who had two daughters, and I wrote ‘Astro City Volume 2 #1,’ which was about a guy who had two daughters. In both cases, about a year and a half or two years apart. And then after that, I had two daughters, about a year and a half or two years apart.
Kurt Busiek
My story is so boring: Long Island Jewish parents take their daughters to Broadway.
Idina Menzel
Jewelery is my weakness. Whenever I see any jewellery, I am unable to control myself. My daughters or somebody has to cool me down.
Sridevi
My wife Maya Bhate is from Pune. My daughters Diya and Keya, and I, are regular visitors to the city, since her family is based here.
Victor Banerjee
I wore myself out physically and mentally over my career, and I couldn’t be there for my daughters in ways I should have been.
Darcey Bussell
Some of the most disturbing, sick relationships I’ve witnessed are between long-time friends, and especially mothers and daughters.
Gillian Flynn
I only tour in short bursts, I’m only ever away from my family and three daughters for a month or two.
Harry Connick, Jr.
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.
Doug Ose
Like any other people, like fathers, mothers, sons and daughters in every land, when the issue of peace or war has been put squarely to the American people, they have registered for peace.
Paul Robeson
If we want our daughters to honor their bodies, they need to hear us honor ours, no matter what size or shape we are, no matter what scars or sags we see in that mirror.
Regina Brett
Like most people, my parents were only able to fulfil their dreams because there was support. A council home so they could save for a deposit to buy a home of their own. Fantastic local state schools where my own daughters go now. Affordable university places and good quality apprenticeships.
Sadiq Khan
My wife and I grew up in the Northeast but my daughters are sort of small-town girls, from the Midwest.
Frank Vogel
Gays and lesbians gained rights in this country though activism and organizing, creating political space and demanding change so that lawmakers and justices could do what they knew was right. That organizing allowed Americans to get to know gays and lesbians as our daughters and sons, our neighbors, and our friends.
Pramila Jayapal
I always had my guitar; I worked at writing some songs. I always played music – in the house. I sang to my daughters, I scribbled down some ideas. Actually I didn’t always play music. I did leave it alone for some time too.
Sixto Rodriguez
The young women in my classes are feisty and clever and believe, often with the passion of youthful optimism, that feminism is a battle already won. I worry for them – and for my daughters, too.
Louise Brown
My problem is I can't show any of my movies to my daugh

My problem is I can’t show any of my movies to my daughters. It’s tough. ‘Beauty and the Beast’… they liked it. But that’s the only one, really. Otherwise, they’ve always been dark or violent.
Vincent Cassel
Moms and daughters can negotiate over anything, and they can go on longer than it took to settle the Vietnam War.
Steve Schirripa
We mothers of grown-up daughters tend to view them with a mixture of love, exasperation, irritation and awe.
Anne Robinson
I am a fortunate man in that all three of my daughters are exceptional. Very high beings, very smart people, very wonderful and very brilliant, very beautiful. They’re all artists.
Bob Saget
Anything I have blown a lot of money on? Well, I have three daughters and a wife – that’s four women, and I’m working on a sitcom, so you could say that I am just trying to stay alive!
Chevy Chase
My daughters are my Picassos.
Neneh Cherry
My daughters are in kindergarten and second grade, so many of the stories they tell, write, or illustrate are about each other and our dog, Buster.
Doreen Cronin
Sometimes I act younger than my daughters. But that’s when they say, ‘Mama, stop it!’
Hema Malini
We are lucky to have had the longevity we’ve had, garnering new people. I’ve even become cool to my daughters’ friends.
Curt Smith
When I think of the limitless potential my young daughters, Grace and Brynn, will have as they grow into young women, I want my girls’ generation to remember the strength, determination, and struggles of the women who came before them and paved the way.
Cathy McMorris Rodgers
In life, you either watch TV or you do TV. I told my daughters that the only way you’re going to make it in this business is to get in the game. That’s the biggest advice I can give them.
David Hasselhoff
You, too, women, cast away all the cowards from your embraces; they will give you only cowards for children, and you who are the daughters of the land of beauty must bear children who are noble and brave.
Giuseppe Garibaldi
Our children, two daughters and a son, were born in 1874, 1876, and 1879.
Mary Augusta Ward
I think, over the years, the way my daughters’ friends have embraced me has definitely made my daughters appreciate me more. Of course they take me for granted because I’m the one who’s there, but listen, I don’t want to be ‘the cool mom’ who lets things get out of control.That’s not my lookout.
Pamela Adlon
When I was growing up, my parents told me, ‘Finish your dinner. People in China and India are starving.’ I tell my daughters, ‘Finish your homework. People in India and China are starving for your job.’
Thomas Friedman
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.
Gretchen Rubin
I’ve got two very sophisticated daughters who’d rather die than see their dad in a technicoloured knitted jacket.
Phillip Schofield
Kaye was such a loving and compassionate person and she was the foundation of our family. Kaye was always at my side throughout my career as a player, coach, NFL analyst and, most importantly, as a parent to our three daughters Meagan, Lauren and Lindsay. They will miss their mother dearly.
Bill Cowher
Compared to Alia, it’s little more difficult for Shaheen, as she has a famous father and a famous sibling, too. So, I always tell my daughters to not to pay much heed to these expectations and give more importance to their dreams. They should keep working hard and find their own talent.
Soni Razdan
I have people ask me if I’m going to convince my daughters to be Democrats, and I say, ‘I have yet to convince my daughters to close a door.’ I don’t how in the world I would ever convince them to be in a political affiliation.
James Carville
In Europe, I do see a lot of women who were fans years ago bring their daughters and sons to shows and that’s how my music gets passed down, and I love that.
Lisa Stansfield
I’ve been fortunate enough to travel the world because of my career, but the downside has been spending long spells apart from my daughters.
Sean Bean
Many mothers and daughters are as close as any two people can be, but closeness always carries with it the need – indeed, the desire – to consider how your actions will affect the other person, and this can make you feel that you are no longer in control of your own life.
Deborah Tannen
I collaborated with so many people from Chicago – so many Black people, young Black women organizations like BYP100 and Assata’s Daughters. Just being out there, I saw what a community mobilizing can accomplish in terms of freedom and how music and my words in my music can play a significant part in that.
Vic Mensa
My mother’s incredibly independent and she brought us up to be the same. She had five daughters and two sons and only allowed one mirror in the house because she didn’t want us to be obsessed with our looks or weight.
Laila Rouass
I fear for the lives of my daughters. I am uncertain about what kind of future they will face.
Fantastic Negrito
I have said to people I have six children, one son, four daughters, and a church.
Robert H. Schuller
Dangal’ movie has been made on our lives in which two daughters win a medal for the country. It just shows that the times are changing and people’s attitudes are changing and if it is changing because of us then we are very happy about it.
Geeta Phogat
As much as I love my daughters, I wasn’t happy with only being a stay-at-home-dad, and my wife encouraged me to try, to really try, at being a writer. More than anything, I didn’t want to let her down.
Alexi Zentner
It’s a complicated dynamic sometimes, mothers and daughters. There’s this thing of, like, ‘This is a model of womanhood for you,’ but yet we find so many reasons why we don’t want to be like our mother.
Susan Kelechi Watson
I’m a pretty avid reader, but I missed feminism in college. I did take an intro course where I read Mary Wollstonecraft, but I didn’t read a lot of the seminal writers. Then I had two teenage daughters and was reading books on development and different issues.
Norbert Leo Butz
As many know, and especially those who may have young s

As many know, and especially those who may have young sons or daughters at colleges or universities, the last thing you want to hear is a call that perhaps one of your children was injured or, even worse, lost their life in a tragic fire at a dorm or campus housing.
Vito Fossella
Daphne is the eldest of the Bridgerton daughters, so she is the first to make her debut on the marriage mart and she’s waited her whole life for this moment. When we meet her, she conforms to the social pressures placed on young women at the time but as she evolves, she very much finds her voice.
Phoebe Dynevor
My daughters have grown up knowing all about my kidnapping and the case and what happened.
Patty Hearst
Nixon has enough to overcome in terms of his legacy and his political history. Now he has to overcome the in-fighting between his daughters. It’s so sad. There’s another obstacle for him to clear.
Monica Crowley
Just recently I was in Target with my mom shopping, and out of the blue, I see this father and his two daughters and he says, ‘Can they get a picture with you?’ And I’m thinking to myself, ‘Am I the one millionth customer or something?’
Atticus Shaffer
