"All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does, and that is his." Oscar Wilde
A wonderful collection of quotes and photographs about one of the most important human relationships: mother and daughter.
Their connection can be close, challenging, or best friends, but it is unique. This collection of quotations from thinkers and writers celebrates and illuminates this relationship. From Oscar Wilde to Marlene Dietrich, from Simone de Beauvoir's daughter to Jane Austen, Emily Dickinson and Elizabeth Gaskell.
Witty, clever, tender and insightful, the quotes are accompanied by wonderful vintage photographs of mothers and daughters. A handsome book for all mothers and daughters.
