Posts Tagged ‘ DAUGHTER IN LAW ’


Mothers, look after your daughters, keep them near you, keep their confidence — that they may be true and faithful.”
Elmina S. Taylor

2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate DAUGHTERS. SHE has one and one DAUGHTER-IN-LAW. HE has 2 DAUGHTERS. SHE has 2 granddaughters. DAUGHTERS IS GOOD.

A son is a son till he takes him a wife, a daughter is a daughter all of her life.  ~Irish Saying




O Autumn, laden with fruit, and stained
With the blood of the grape, pass not, but sit
Beneath my shady roof; there thou mayest rest
And tune thy jolly voice to my fresh pipe,
And all the daughters of the year shall dance!
Sing now the lusty song of fruits and flowers.
William Blake
To Autumn.

Your children are not your children. / They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
Kahlil Gibran


A daughter is a mother’s gender partner, her closest ally in the family confederacy, an extension of her self.  And mothers are their daughters’ role model, their biological and emotional road map, the arbiter of all their relationships.  ~Victoria Secunda

“The best way to stimulate emancipation is to start to educate your sons to be humans instead of men, and to educate your daughters to be humans instead of women.”
 Annie M.G. Schmidt





The Buddha said, “O monks, you should not see women. (If you have to see them), refrain from talking to them. (If you have to talk to them), you should reflect in a right spirit: ‘I am now a homeless mendicant. In the world of sin, I must behave myself like unto the lotus flower whose purity is not defiled by the mud. Old ones I will treat as my mother; elderly ones as elder sisters; younger ones as younger sisters; and little ones as daughters.’ And in all this you should habour no evil thoughts, but think of salvation.”

“Liberty is the mother, not the daughter, of order




2 Tough and Crazy people get together and consider life through the Oracle of the Animated Gif. They contemplate SONS. SHE has ONE and HE has NONE but he has been a Son. SHE is very fond of her Son. And his Lady.

    The Son of man came eating and drinking, and they say, Behold a man gluttonous, and a winebibber, a friend of publicans and sinners. But wisdom is justified of her children.

You are young, my son, and, as the years go by, time will change and even reverse many of your present opinions. Refrain therefore awhile from setting yourself up as a judge of the highest matters.

Trust with dirt on his face,
Beauty with a cut on his finger,
Wisdom with bubble gum in his hair, and the
Hope of the future with
A frog in his pocket

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God.




Just as a mother would protect with her life her own son, her only son,
so one should cultivate an unbounded mind towards all beings, and loving-kindness towards all the world.
One should cultivate an unbounded mind, above and below and across, without obstruction, without enmity, without rivalry.
Standing, or going, or seated, or lying down, as long as one is free from drowsiness, one should practice this mindfulness.
This, they say, is the holy state here.
Sutta Nipata

What was silent in the father speaks in the son, and often I found in the son the unveiled secret of the father.  ~Friedrich Nietzsche

   Remember that every son had a mother
whose beloved son he was,
and every woman had a mother
whose beloved son she wasn’t.

(Marge Piercy (20th century), U.S. writer. “Doing It Differently,” Circles on the Water (1892).)
