Daughters - The Fighters

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

They say if a woman wants to marry a married man, find one who hasn't have a daughter because daughters are born protectors and fighters - they will protect and fight for their beloved mother. To ensure your 'sweet for my sweet' deal will close smoothly, it is imperative to have the trust of his daughters. Otherwise, forget about it and move on.

So, when one of DSAI's daughters shouted "Bertaubatlah" to that 'thing we called Say-fool', as reported here, I know she loves her father truly and like all good daughters, "she is her mother's gender partner, her closest ally in the family confederacy, an extension of her self".

You see, a daughter could love her parents but if only she knows that is the right to do. To continue loving her parents is part of her quests in this world that "all things sacred and right are worth to fight for". I know that because I am a daughter too.

So, I don't need any other evidence about this Sodo-what II case. We daughters have good instincts that could topple judgment of any men in robes (that seem to be robbing one's rights too often too much lately) anytime.

Thomas Fuller
once said, "If you would [like] to have a good wife, marry one who has been a good daughter".

I don't have to tell you what a bad daughter and a bad wife could do to a man and a nation, right?

This post will end with John Mayer's "Daughters" and Martina McBride's "In My Daughter's Eyes". How very important that we be as good as we could be because what we do today would shape of what will happen in the future of our loved ones.

What sweet solace this brings to me; for I am a father to my daughter.

Dear Mr. Oscar The Grouch

I am glad you feel it and your solace reminds me of Joseph Addison, who once said that “Certain is it that there is no kind of affection so purely angelic as 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”.

Indescribable? Well, Albert Einstein makes my heart sings when he said "“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious”.

May you have a precious weekend with your beloveds, Sir...
