I'm just one of many moms who will say an extra prayer each night for our sons and daughters going into harm's way.
I have three daughters, so I can't be as tough as I want to be. When you have kids - especially daughters - they know how to work you. They're a lot smarter than we are, that's for sure. But I'll be more tough on their boyfriends.
My wife, my daughters, even my grandchildren are funny. You've got to keep a sense of humor because anger destroys you.
Being a father at a later age is different from when I had my other two daughters when I was in my 20s and 30s. If you're in your 60s and you're with the kid every day, you're dealing with the mind of a child, so it opens up that childishness in you again.
I am so excited to let fans in on how important my relationship with my family is to me. I hope to motivate mothers and daughters to build lifetimes of memories together and inspire kids around the world to live their dreams.
If I had a choice of educating my daughters or my sons because of opportunity constraints, I would choose to educate my daughters.
I don't pretend there aren't biological differences, but I don't believe the desire for leadership is hardwired biology, not the desire to win or excel. I believe that it's socialization, that we're socializing our daughters to nurture and our boys to lead.
When husbands and fathers leave, their wives and daughters tend to value themselves less as a result.
When I see daughters with their fathers I wonder what that would be like, although not in a way that immobilises me.
The cheapest gadget - and you don't even have to spend a dime - is chopsticks from a Chinese restaurant. I use them for everything: to toss salads, to turn a piece of meat in the pan, to flip croquettes in the Fryolator, to whisk eggs for omelets, to stir eggs into fried rice when I make that for my daughters.
Jose Andres Puerta
I think my daughters have a pretty healthy self-awareness but I can't speak on their behalf.
I was a girl in a land where rifles are fired in celebration of a son, while daughters are hidden away behind a curtain, their role in life simply to prepare food and give birth to children.
My generation was not only maligned in book reviews and attacked in graduate school but we lived to see our adored and adorable daughters wonder why feminism had become a dirty word.
I am a futurist, projecting trends in science into the next decades and century, but ironically my two daughters - one is a neuroscientist and the other is a pastry chef - tell me that my taste in music is positively prehistoric.
Mothers don't let your daughters grow up to be models unless you're present.
I'm still not a great reader, but my wife is and my daughters are, and I envy them. I think I got into a bad habit of trying to do something all the time, instead of trying to sit down and take my time a little bit.
Both of our daughters, Debbie and Bonnie, are also cancer survivors.
I think that freedom means freedom for everyone. As many of you know, one of my daughters is gay, and it is something we have lived with for a long time in our family. I think people ought to be free to enter into any kind of union they wish. Any kind of arrangement they wish.
We mothers of grown-up daughters tend to view them with a mixture of love, exasperation, irritation and awe.
Words are men's daughters, but God's sons are things.
Even when I'm tired, when I come home and think about catching up on my sleep, I'd rather stay up and hold my daughters.
I think, as women, we have to stop being scared to be the women we want to be and we have to raise our daughters to be the women they want to be - not the women we think they should be.
Jada Pinkett Smith
I'm teaching my daughters to be ladies by showing them how to dress appropriately when they leave the house, and how to be thoughtful and polite.
The night I was recognized for 'Daughters' at the Grammys was the night this record started. I knew I had bought the time to learn everything I needed before I started this one. 'Continuum' is not a shot in the dark, it's not a guesstimation.
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.
