Inspirational Mother Daughter Quotes

The whisper of a baby girl can be heard further than the roar of a lion.

Arab Proverb

A tiny daughter gives parents a life in a climate of perpetual wonder.

Pierre Doucet

What a lot of fuss we make over disappointments and failures and the loss of material things. When all that really matters is that the family have each other - and you.

Pam Brown, b.1928

Dear Daughter. Take my love with you now and into the time that I will never know. It is as much a part of you as breath. Or your identity.

Charlotte Gray

Having children is like planting seeds from an unmarked packet. You vaguely believe that you are going to get daisies. Instead, you get orchids, roses, morning glories, sunflowers... But all beautiful. Like you.

Pam Brown, b. 1928

She is inventive, original and takes what she wants from life-including many of her mother's clothes. When she comes into a room she expects something to happen and, if it doesn't she takes steps to see that it does.

Rachel Billington, from "The Great Umbilical"

How to Make Mother's Day Card

What feeling is so nice as a child's hand in yours? So small, so soft and warm, like a kitten huddling in the shelter of your clasp.

Marjorie Holmes

"Thank heavens for little girls." And they are not just their potential as women. With pigtails and pony tails, in jeans and party dresses, climbing trees, reading books, sucking gobstoppers and turning cartwheels, making friends and breaking friends, they bring their special charm into the world, a delight in detail, a tenderness in relationship, a sensitivity to joy and sorrow and spiritual truth; the many attributes which make them different from little boys.

Michele Guinness, from "Tapestry of Voices"

In the evening, after she has gone to sleep, I kneel beside the crib and touch her face, where it is pressed against the slats, with mine.

Joan Didion


She is yours to hold in your cupped hands, to guard and to guide. Give her your strength and wisdom and all the good that life can offer. Yours is a sacred trust. Never harm her with words that can bite and sting. Lead her into truth.

Michele Guinness, from "Tapestry of Voices"

With a daughter, life can never, never, never be monotonous.

Pam Brown, b. 1928

I have found the best way to give advice to your children is to find out what they want and then advise them to do it.

Harry S Truman (1884-1972)

...she is a wise, giving, deeply loving daughter and friend. The chasm that existed between us is now, thankfully, a meadowland of conversation and love.

Debbie Reynolds, b. 1932, from "Debbie: My Life"

You must be free to take a path

Whose end I feel no need to know...

So you can go without regret

Away from this familiar land,

Leaving your kiss upon my hair

And all the future in your hands.

Margaret Mead (1901-1978), from "Blackberry Winter"

Love me always and forever, my existence depends on it... as I told you the other day you are all my joy and all my sorrow. What remains of my life is overshadowed by grief when I consider how much of it will be spent far from you.

Madame de Sevigne (1926-1696) In a letter to her daughter

You never will finish being a daughter... You will be one when you're ninety and so will I.

Gail Godwin

I hope you find joy in the great things of life - but also in the little things. A flower, a song, a butterfly on your hand.

Ellen Levine

The most creative and meaningful accomplishment in my life is to have this daughter who loves, understands and respects me and gives my life real meaning. Yet, my wish for her is as old fashioned as can be; health, happiness, peace, love and a daughter for her as wonderful as she has been to me.

Lynn Wilson Spohrer, from "A Portrait of American Mothers and Daughters"

Thank you for showing me, when I thought my mothering days were over, that the best days between us are only just beginning.

Pam Brown, b. 1928
