Christopher Hitchens – The father of growing daughters

Share this quote:
Christopher HitchensTo be the father of growing daughters is to understand something of what Yeats evokes with his imperishable phrase ‘terrible beauty.’ Nothing can make one so happily exhilarated or so frightened: It’s a solid lesson in the limitations of self to realize that your heart is running around inside someone else’s body.

Christopher Hitchens

Joseph Addison – Father and daughter affection

Share this quote:
Joseph AddisonCertain it is that there is no kind of affection so purely angelic as that of a father to a daughter. In love to our wives there is desire; to our sons, ambition; but to our daughters there is something which there are no words to express.

Joseph Addison   (1672-1719)
