Grandparents Quotes

Any great truth can -- and eventually will -- be expressed as a cliche -- a cliche is a sure and certain way to dilute an idea. For instance, my grandmother used to say, 'The black cat is always the last one off the fence.' I have no idea what she meant, but at one time, it was undoubtedly true.
Solomon Short
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
I mean to live my life an obedient man, but obedient to God, subservient to the wisdom of my ancestors never to the authority of political truths arrived at yesterday at the voting booth.
William Frank Buckley, Jr.
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
I don't know who my grandfather was I am much more concerned to know what his grandson will be.
Abraham Lincoln
I guess one of the funniest memories of my grandfather was the time I was at his house and that tied-up man with the gag in his mouth came hopping out of the closet and started yelling that HE was really my grandfather and the other guy was an imposter and to run for help. Who was that guy Oh, well, never saw HIM again.
Jack Handey Deep Thoughts
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
You've got to do your own growing, no matter how tall your grandfather was.
Irish Proverb
My grandfather once told me that there were two kinds of people those who do the work and those who take the credit. He told me to try to be in the first group there was much less competition.
Indira Nehru Gandhi
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson
Humans are not proud of their ancestors, and rarely invite them round to dinner.
Douglas Adams
If the grandfather of the grandfather of Jesus had known what was hidden within him, he would have stood humble and awe-struck before his soul.
Kahlil Gibran
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
It is certainly desirable to be well descended, but the glory belongs to our ancestors.
Plutarch
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
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
