Victorian Quotes and Sayings to Daughters

From bringing up children, to moral instruction, to advice on finances, the Victorians passed on a wealth of advice. For daughters, sayings and quotes were often repeated, intended to soothe, console and advise daughters on all aspects of their lives.

These quotes passed on from generation to generation. Many of these quotes and/or metaphors are still used in many households on a regular basis and others are relics of a time and era which has taken its place in the past.

Technically, the Victorian period spans from 1837 to 1901. Others place the Victorian period within the passages of the great reform bills in 1832 and 1867. The period was marked by great change, chaos, prosperity for some with poverty and misery for others. It was a time of great inventiveness but also a time of great upheaval. Advice and quotes were always at hand, whether one belonged in the upper or lower classes.
