Mother Daughter Quotes

It is truly a beautiful relationship that is shared between a mother and her daughter. At times, she will visit you during night to check on you just to see if you are all right, just because of a nightmare she saw. She teaches her daughter to be a woman, passing on the joys of the family, of relationships, and above all, of being a woman. For most of mothers, it is the lessons that they learned from trial and errors in their lives, ending up as teachings to their daughters. There is a strange telepathy between a mother and a daughter; even you must have come across such instances yourself when you felt your mother's emotions, even when you were miles apart. It might be because the mother sees herself in her daughter, and the daughter hopes to become like her. But rarely do they realize that they are the mirror images of each other; such is their relationship. Here are some quotes telling this sweet tale of a mother-daughter relationship.
