New grandmother quotes

Grandmother quotes -an extensive collection of quotations by famous authors, celebrities, and newsmakers- can help us to take a moment to celebrate the incredible contributions grandparents have made to our lives.

Late American humorist, Sam Levenson, said wryly, “The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.” Everything in life can be laughed at, but it also must be acknowledged that grandparents are crucially important figures, both to their grandchildren and adult children, but also to society as a whole.

A recent study by Boston College found that “an emotionally close relationship between grandparent and grandchildren is associated with fewer symptoms of depression for both generations.”

Everyone’s got a special name for their Grandmother: Grandma, Nonna, Noni, the list goes on and on. Regardless of what you call her if you’re lucky enough to have her, she is probably pretty awesome. Full of wisdom, recipes and life lessons. She probably let you get away with things your parents wouldn’t.

“And now you’re off to Port Caynn. Watch them sailor lads. They’ll have your skirts up and a babe in your belly afore you know what you’re about.”

“Everyone keep warning me about sailors,” I complained. “Why can’t someone tell the sailors to stay clear of me?”

Granny snorted. “Oh, you’re the fierce one now! Just take care no one else catches you unawares and knocks you on the nob!”

Tamora Pierce, Bloodhound

“The best baby-sitters, of course, are the baby’s grandparents. You feel completely comfortable entrusting your baby to them for long periods, which is why most grandparents flee to Florida.”
― Dave Barry


“From her thighs, she gives you life

And how you treat she who gives you life

Shows how much you value the life given to you by the Creator.

And from seed to dust

There is ONE soul above all others —

That you must always show patience, respect, and trust

And this woman is your mother.

And when your soul departs your body

And your deeds are weighed against the feather

There is only one soul who can save yours

And this woman is your mother.

And when the heart of the universe

Asks her hair and mind,

Whether you were gentle and kind to her

Her heart will be forced to remain silent

And her hair will speak freely as a separate entity,

Very much like the seaweed in the sea —

It will reveal all that it has heard and seen.

This woman whose heart has seen yours,

First before anybody else in the world,

And whose womb had opened the door

For your eyes to experience light and more —

Is your very own MOTHER.

So, no matter whether your mother has been cruel,

Manipulative, abusive, mentally sick, or simply childish

How you treat her is the ultimate test.

If she misguides you, forgive her and show her the right way

With simple wisdom, gentleness, and kindness.

And always remember,

That the queen in the Creator’s kingdom,

Who sits on the throne of all existence,

Is exactly the same as in yours.

And her name is,

THE DIVINE MOTHER.”

Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

“To all those who care,

You can’t forever.

Time steals the years,

And your reflection in the mirror.

But I can still see the story in your eyes,

And your timeless passion that’s never died.

While your skin became tired,

Your heart became strong,

The present became the past,

And your memories like a song.

And though the moment at hand is all that we have,

You’ve taught me to live it like it is our last.

Since two words don’t say ‘thank you’ the way they are meant to,

I’ll try all my life to be something like you.”

Crystal Woods, Write like no one is reading 2

“His grandmother had taught him that there was no such thing as coincidence. There are millions of people in this world, she had told him, and the spirits will see that most of them, you never have to meet. But there are one or two that you are tied to, and spirits will cross you back and forth, threading so many knots until they catch and you finally get it right.”
― Jodi Picoult


“Gran, for the gods’ love, it’s talk like yours that starts riots!” I said keeping my voice down. “Will you just put a stopper in it?”

She looked at me and sighed. “Girl, do you ever take a breath and wonder if folk don’t put out bait for you? To see if you’ll bite? You’ll never get a man if you don’t relax.”

My dear old Gran. It’s a wonder her children aren’t every one of them as mad as priests, if she mangles their wits as she mangles mine.

“Granny, “I told her, “this is dead serious. I can’t relax, no more than any Dog. I’m not shopping for a man. That’s the last thing I need.”

Tamora Pierce, Bloodhound

“Grandmotherhood initiated me into a world of play, where all things became fresh, alive, and honest again through my grandchildren’s eyes. Mostly, it retaught me love.”
― Sue Monk Kidd


“And like that, I said goodbye to my grandmother like we were two people who met in a coffee shop, shared a lifetime of stories and left wanting more, but knowing we’d meet there again.”
― Darnell Lamont Walker


“My grandmother was the only grandmother I ever met who smoked cigars.”

Roald Dahl , The Witches

“Ma-ma-oo didn’t gun the motor so we puttered along. The day promised to be a scorcher, but out on the ocean with the spray cooling on my face and the wind drying it away, the heat was bearable. I wished summer would never end. I wished I could do this all year and never have to go back to school. I wished I could pick berries and go fishing with Ma-ma-oo and spend all my days wandering.”

Eden Robinson, Monkey Beach

“The boys are afraid of Opal, like she was always afraid of her mom. Something about how brief and direct she is. Maybe hypercritical too, like her mom was hypercritical. It’s to prepare them for a world made for Native people not to live but to die in, shrink, disappear. She needs to push them harder because it will take more for them to succeed than someone who is not Native. It’s because she failed to do anything more than disappear herself. She’s no-nonsense with them because she believes life will do its best to get at you. Sneak up from behind and shatter you into tiny unrecognizable pieces.”

Tommy Orange, There There

“Ninge din nou şi Elsa hotărăşte că oamenii care-i plac trebuie să-i placă mai departe, chiar dacă au fost dobitoci mai demult. Că altfel se termină cam repede oamenii din jurul tău dacă-i descalifici pe veci pe toţi cei care s-au purtat ca nişte dobitoci cândva. Se gândeşte că asta trebuie să fie morala acestei poveşti de Crăciun. Că aşa sunt poveştile de Crăciun, cu morală.”

Fredrik Backman, My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry

“We believed in our grandmother’s cooking more fervently than we believed in God. Her culinary prowess was one of our family’s primal stories, like the cunning of the grandfather I never met, or the single fight of my parents’ marriage. We clung to those stories and depended on them to define us. We were the family that chose its battles wisely, and used wit to get out of binds, and loved the food of our matriarch.”

Jonathan Safran Foer, Eating Animals

“I remember watching my grandmother build her fire,

the honest kindling, the twisted newspaper,

the tiny tower of good black coal.

And how, once lit, she’d hold a sheet of newspaper

across the fire and say, ‘watch it suck, dear’.

An Old Woman’s Fire

Jackie Kay, Red, Cherry Red

“Does that mean you won’t be building me a castle in our new kingdom?”  He pouted.  “Because, your grandmother said I could be prince of the Enchanted Forest.  She’s going to steal me a crown and everything.  We have it all planned.”

Cassandra Gannon, Wicked Ugly Bad

“How did the name

misfit even come about?” Sam asked. “It’s so… dumb.”

Willo laughed. “Well, it’s really not,” she said. “We used to call them all sorts of slang terms: kooks, greasers, killjoys, chumps, and we had to keep changing the name as times changed. We used

nerds for a long time, and then we started calling them dweebs.”

Willo hesitated. “And then a group of kids wasn’t so nice to your mom.”

“I had braces,” Deana said. “I had pimples. I had a perm. You do the math.”

She smiled briefly, but Sam could tell the pain was still there. Deana continued: “And I worked here most of the time so I really didn’t get a chance to do a lot with friends after school. It was hard.”

This time, Willo reached out to rub her daughter’s leg. “Your mom was pretty down one Christmas,” she said. “All of the kids were going on a ski trip to a resort in Boyne City, but she had to stay here and work during the holiday rush. She was moping around one night, lying on the couch and watching TV…”

“… stuffing holiday cookies in my mouth,” Deana added.

“… and

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer came on. She was about to change the channel, but I made her sit back down and watch it with me. Remember the part about the Island of Misfit Toys?”

Sam nodded.

Willo continued. “All of those toys that were tossed away and didn’t have a home because they were different: the Charlie-in-the-Box, the spotted elephant, the train with square wheels, the cowboy who rides an ostrich…”

“… the swimming bird,” Sam added with a laugh.

“And I told your mom that all of those toys were magical and perfect

because they were different,” Willo said. “What made them different is what made them unique.”

Sam looked at her mom, who gave her a timid smile.

“I walked in early the next morning to open the pie pantry, and your mom was already in there making donuts,” Willo said. “She had a big plate of donuts that didn’t turn out perfectly and she looked up at me and said, very quietly, ‘I want to start calling them misfits.’ When I asked her why, she said, ‘They’re as good as all the others, even if they look a bit different.’ We haven’t changed the name since.”

Viola Shipman, The Recipe Box

“Remember how you played in these orchards as young girls?” Willo asked Deana and Sam.

Deana turned to look at Sam, and the two smiled. “We do,” they said at the same time.

These orchards had been their playground as girls.

Sam slowed even more and studied the orchards carefully.

I ran, played hide-and-seek, caught fireflies, scaled trees, picked apples and peaches straight off the tree, launched pits from slingshots, and danced in the sprinkles here . Sam thought.

Moreover, I learned about plants and science: I understood the seasons, when to plant trees and seeds, how to nurture them and protect them from insects, what to feed the deer in winter and the hummingbirds in summer .

Sam again thought of her grandpa.

If we’re good to Mother Nature, she will be good to us , he always used to tell her.

Same goes for people .”

Viola Shipman, The Recipe Box

“1947, a found poem,

full of erasures in history

of India and Pakistan.”

Sneha Subramanian Kanta, Synecdoche

“Her grandmother’s cooking area was small- a tiny sink, no dishwasher, a bit of a counter- but out of it came tortellini filled with meat and nutmeg and covered in butter and sage, soft pillows of gnocchi, roasted chickens that sent the smell of lemon and rosemary slipping through the back roads of the small town, bread that gave a visiting grandchild a reason to unto the kitchen on cold mornings and nestle next to the fireplace, a hunk of warm, newly baked breakfast in each hand.”

Erica Bauermeister, The School of Essential Ingredients

“Jamais ma grand-mère ne se séparait de moi sans me donner quelque chose, un bonbon, une pièce de monnaie, un fruit, une cuillerée de son repas, une gorgée de son thé, un bout de son pain.”

Nathacha Appanah, Petit éloge des fantômes

“For them I learned to be a mother again, cooking pancakes and thick herb-and-apple sausages. I made jam for them from figs and green tomatoes and sour cherries and quinces. I let them play with the little brown mischievous goats and feed them crusts and pieces of carrot. We fed the hens, stroked the soft noses of the ponies, collected sorrel for the rabbits. I showed them the river and how to reach the sunny sandbanks. I warned them- with such a catch in my heart- of the dangers, the snakes, roots, eddies, quicksand, made them promise never,

never to swim there. I showed them the woods beyond, the best places to find mushrooms, the ways of telling the fake chanterelle from the true, the sour bilberries growing wild under the thicket.”

Joanne Harris, Five Quarters of the Orange

“My grandmother had a love which found in me so totally its complement, its goal, its constant lodestar, that the genius of great men, all the genius that might ever have existed from the beginning of the world, would have been less precious to my grandmother than a single one of my defects.”

Marcel Proust, The Guermantes Way

“And something else: it came to me like a postcard or a paining on a cavern wall. When I heard of your stroke, I thought about living in the world without you and I felt the air grow still and the light change. Then I saw him for the first time and understood at last. I saw your sea monster, kindly and serene, mythic and loving, rise out of the Gulf Stream and swim casually toward the shores of Jacksonville, toward his old friend and traveler. I hope that when he comes, you will be ready with all your bags packed. I hope for you that this last voyage through dreams and seas is the best of all.”

Pat Conroy, The Pat Conroy Cookbook: Recipes of My Life

“Lillian tells everyone about her flaws,” Daisy said, her brown eyes twinkling. “She’s proud of them.”

“I do have a terrible temper,” Lillian acknowledged smugly. “And I can curse like a sailor.”

“Who taught you to do that?” Annabelle asked.

“My grandmother. She was a washerwoman. And my grandfather was the soap maker from whom she bought her supplies. Since she worked near the docks, most of her customers were sailors and dockers, who taught her words so vulgar that it would curl your hair ribbons to hear them.”

Lisa Kleypas, Secrets of a Summer Night

“Best thing she could do. Going to take her to stay with my grandmother.’

‘By Jove!’ exclaimed Ferdy, much struck. ‘Devilish good notion of yours, Gil! As long as she ain’t dead.’

‘Of course she ain’t dead!’ said Mr Ringwood, with a touch of impatience. ‘How could I take Kitten to stay with her if she was?”

Georgette Heyer, Friday’s Child

“You look very well – at least, you would if you didn’t make such a figure of yourself in that rig! When I was a girl, no gentleman would have dreamed of paying a social call without powder, let me tell you! Enough to make your grandfather turn in his grave to see what you’ve all come to, with your skimpy coats, and your starched collars, and not a bit of lace to your neckcloth, or your wristbands! If you can sit down in those skin-tight breeches, or pantaloons, or whatever you call ’em, do so!”

Georgette Heyer, Arabella

“When I wasn’t trying to swallow something that no one is ever going to make me believe wasn’t drained off from the kennels, I was sitting watching your aunt knot a fringe in the most uncomfortable hole of a lodging I’ve been in yet! Why, I had to take all my own bed-linen with me!’

‘You always do, ma’am,’ said Mr Beaumaris, who had several times been privileged to see the start of one of the Duchess’s impressive journeys. ‘Also your own plate, your favourite chair, your steward, your –’

‘I don’t want any of your impudence, Robert!’ interrupted her grace. ‘I don’t always *have* to take ’em!”

Georgette Heyer, Arabella

“You are my everything. You understand me, Via? Tu es meu tudo.” I understood her. And I knew why she said it was a secret. Grandmothers aren’t supposed to have favorites. Everyone knows that. But after she died, I held on to that secret and let it cover me like a blanket.”

R.J. Palacio, Wonder
