    Hello

    "I received so many threats but none of them made me nervous except one that stated he is going to kidnap my beloved daughter."

    Thanks

    I have changed your thread title, arashrad. As you know,

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'

    Your title 'grammer' was useless and spelt wrong.

    Put a comma after "nervous" and change "is" to "was".
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    You don't need "so". Also, put a comma after "threats".

    It could be he was going to kidnap.

    Re: I received so many threats...

    I would amalgamate all the suggestions above to make the sentence "I received many threats but none of them made me nervous except the one that said he was going to kidnap my daughter".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Wouldn't you put a comma before "but"?

    That would be optional.
