"The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy."

 Quotes about Grandparents

"I loved my own Grandparents with all my heart. I learned important lessons from them about how to treat people, how to cook and how to work.....they showered us kids with love and left the parenting to Momma and Daddy. That's the beauty of being a grandparent - the hard work belongs to someone else. I guess I never really understood the depth of their love for me until I became a grandmother is unlike any other relationship."

Paula Deen

Quotes about Grandparents

"Never have children, only grandchildren."

Gore Vidal

Quotes about Grandparents

"A grandfather was walking through his yard when he heard his granddaughter repeating the alphabet in a tone of voice that sounded like a prayer. He asked her what she was doing. The little girl explained: "I'm praying, but I can't think of exactly the right words, so I'm just saying all the letters, and God will put them together for me, because He knows what I'm thinking."

Charles B. Vaughan

William Feather (1908 - 1976)

founder of the Iroquois Confederacy, (ca. 1000 AD)

Quotes about Grandparents

"You've got to do your own growing, no matter how tall your grandfather was."

Irish Proverb

Quotes about Grandparents

"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
