Grandparents Quotes

There is no king who has not had a slave among his ancestors, and no slave who has not had a king among his.
Hellen Keller
Do well and you will have no need for ancestors.
Francois Marie Arouet Voltaire
Maybe you're right, boss. It all depends on the way you look at it. Look, one day I had gone to a little village. An old grandfather of ninety was busy planting an almond tree. 'What, grandad' I exclaimed. 'Planting an almond tree' and he, bent as he was, turned round and said, 'My son, I carry on as if I should never die.' I replied, 'And I carry on as if I was going to die any minute.' Which of us was right, boss
Nikos Kazantzakis
Humans are not proud of their ancestors, and rarely invite them round to dinner.
Douglas Adams
Her grandmother, as she gets older, is not fading but rather becoming more concentrated.
Paulette Bates Alden
My Grandmother is over eighty and still doesn't need glasses. Drinks right out of the bottle.
Henny Youngman
You've got to do your own growing, no matter how tall your grandfather was.
Irish Proverb
Commencement speakers have a good deal in common with grandfather clocks Standing usually some six feet tall, typically ponderous in construction, more traditional than functional, their distinction is largely their noisy communication of essentially commonplace information.
W, Willard Wirtz
Our children are here to stay, but our babies and toddlers and preschoolers are gone as fast as they can grow up-and we have only a short moment with each. When you see a grandfather take a baby in his arms, you see that the moment hasn't always been long enough.
Saint Clair Adams Sullivan
It is certainly desirable to be well descended, but the glory belongs to our ancestors.
Plutarch
My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was sixty. She's ninety-seven now, and we don't know where the hell she is.
Ellen DeGeneres
The Queen Mother, with a lifetime's popularity, seemed incapable of a bad performance as national grandmother-warm, smiling, human, understanding, she embodied everything the public could want of its grandmother.
John Pearson
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson
It's interesting to think that my ancestors used to live in the trees, like apes, until finally they got the nerve to head out onto the plains, where some were probably hit by cars.
Jack Handey Deep Thoughts
Over the river and through the wood, To grandfather's house we go The horse knows the way To carry the sleigh, Through the white and drifted snow.
Lydia Maria Child
Men can know more than their ancestors did if they start with a knowledge of what their ancestors had already learned....That is why a society can be progressive only if it conserves its traditions.
Walter Lippmann
