They may not know it, but young daughters often emulate their mothers. Deep in her heart, every girl is like her mother. A mother understands this well. So she tries to protect her daughter from the setbacks that she faced in her youth.

Some mothers are known to be very tough on their daughters. I have seen this myself. When I asked a few moms, why they tighten the reins for daughters, the common reply is, "I have to prepare her for the world to face the hard knocks of life." I have often wondered if this approach is correct.

But I cannot deny that beneath the strict facade, there is a mother who loves her daughter. This is why a mother is a daughter's best friend. Here are Mother's Day quotes from daughters who have achieved great success.

I feel incredibly lucky and blessed, but I do sometimes feel like that exorcist lady!
