The first plus number is your base attack bonus. The second your damage die, third any damage enhancements (STR and enchantment). The final is just the enchantment.

The Dagger would do 8-13 points of damage, the quarterstaff 7-12. Dagger would also hit more often (technically 10% on a D20 roll). But, if you're single-weapon fighting, the THF quarterstaff would swing slightly more often, and have glancing blows which would give it a slight edge over the dagger.
