When my grandchildren are older and my great-grandchildren start growing up, first of all, I want them to be in Israel. I don't want them to leave the country because they have no choice.Dan Shechtman Your First Grandchildren Sayings By Dan Shechtman: When my grandchildren are older and my great-grandchildren start growing up, first of all, I
Now that I'm a grandfather myself, I realize that the best thing about having grandkids is that you get the kid for the best part of the ride - kind of like owning a car for only the first 10,000 miles. You can have your grandchildren for a couple of days and then turn them back over to the parents.Willard Scott Your First Grandchildren Sayings By Willard Scott: Now that I'm a grandfather myself, I realize that the best thing about having grandkids
The three species of pine native to Wisconsin (white, red and jack) differ radically in their opinions about marriageable age. The precocious jackpine sometimes bloom and bears cones a year or two after leaving the nursery, and a few of my 13-year-old jacks already boast of grandchildren. My 13-year-old reds first bloomed this year, but my whites have not yet bloomed; they adhere closely to the Anglo-Saxon doctrine of free, white, and twenty-one.Aldo Leopold Your First Grandchildren Sayings By Aldo Leopold: The three species of pine native to Wisconsin (white, red and jack) differ radically in
Is there nothing I have done which will outlive me, other than the opprobrium of my first wife and sons and grandchildren?
Do I care?
Doesn't everybody?
Poor me. Poor practically everybody, with so little durable good to leave behind!
Kurt Vonnegut Your First Grandchildren Sayings By Kurt Vonnegut: Is there nothing I have done which will outlive me, other than the opprobrium of
It seems to me that sometimes the worst parents make the best grandparents. I'm not sure why. Maybe because there is enough of a generational separation that they don't see their grandchildren as an extension of themselves, so their relationship isn't tainted by any self-loathing. And of course, just growing older seems to soften and relax people. Since so many people these days don't seem to start their families until around age forty, I predict there will be less child beating, but more slipped disks from lifting babies out of cribs. Even the father of advanced age who's not inclined to spare the rod is likely to suffer more than his victim: The first punch he throws might well be the last straw for his rotator cuff, reducing his disciplinary options to mere verbal abuse and napping. I'm excited about the next generation!Sarah Silverman Your First Grandchildren Sayings By Sarah Silverman: It seems to me that sometimes the worst parents make the best grandparents. I'm not
One of the problems, and it's one which is obviously going to get worse, is that all the people at the party are either the children or the grandchildren or the great-grandchildren of the people who wouldn't leave in the first place, and because of all the business about selective breeding and regressive genes and so on, it means that all the people now at the party are either absolutely fanatical partygoers, or gibbering idiots, or, more and more frequently, both.Douglas Adams Your First Grandchildren Sayings By Douglas Adams: One of the problems, and it's one which is obviously going to get worse, is
What were you going to make for Christmas dinner?" one of my
older children asked in a very reasonable tone. I cleared my throat,
but couldn't speak. There was no real explanation for my behavior. I'd been so intent on getting through this first Christmas without David. I'd found new rituals to replace the old, wrapped gifts, and even made cutout sugar cookies. I'd modified Christmas in order to endure it. What I hadn't done was plan on or prepare a Christmas meal. Everyone was looking at me expectantly by this point, including my sweet, hungry grandchildren.
"I forgot all about Christmas dinner," I finally admitted. No one batted an eye.
Mary Potter Kenyon Your First Grandchildren Sayings By Mary Potter Kenyon: What were you going to make for Christmas dinner?" one of myolder children asked in
All the stories of the Bible that I know came to me first from my grandfather's lips. He would see stories in everything. He told stories very easily and very generously, so I loved him for that. He was a simple man, a Victorian; he was born in 1890-something. He saw no reason and had never seen any reason to question his Christian faith. His faith was strong and simple and that's it. And I, like his other grandchildren and the children in his parish, sheltered underneath it.Philip Pullman Your First Grandchildren Sayings By Philip Pullman: All the stories of the Bible that I know came to me first from my

There are three reasons, ... apart from scientific considerations, mankind needs to travel in space. The first ... is garbage disposal; we need to transfer industrial processes into space so that the earth may remain a green and pleasant place for our grandchildren to live in. The second ... to escape material impoverishment: the resources of this planet are finite, and we shall not forego forever the abundance of solar energy and minerals and living space that are spread out all around us. The third ... our spiritual need for an open frontier.Freeman Dyson Your First Grandchildren Sayings By Freeman Dyson: There are three reasons, ... apart from scientific considerations, mankind needs to travel in space.
Art has two great functions. First, it provides an emotional experience. And then, if we have the courage of our own feelings, it becomes a mine of practical truth. We have had the feelings ad nauseam. But we've never dared dig the actual truth out of them, the truth that concerns us, whether it concerns our grandchildren or not.D.H. Lawrence Your First Grandchildren Sayings By D.H. Lawrence: Art has two great functions. First, it provides an emotional experience. And then, if we

Are you afraid of dying?"
"I was at first, maybe I still am a little bit. But it's not death that scares me so much as not being alive anymore. It's missing all the things that I would have seen if I hadn't gotten AIDS. Things like my daughter's graduation, her wedding, my grandchildren. I'll never see those things, and that makes me sad.
Deanna Lynn Sletten Your First Grandchildren Sayings By Deanna Lynn Sletten: Are you afraid of dying?" "I was at first, maybe I still am a little
marriages had not resulted in the daughter Maureen had been looking for, nor were they wives she had wanted for her son.

Harmon Your First Grandchildren Sayings By A.J. Harmon: marriages had not resulted in the daughter Maureen had been looking for, nor were they
Whose boys are those with the holes in their pants?"
I cringed. How would my grandpa answer such an embarrassing question?
"Those are my daughter's children, my grandchildren," Grandpa spoke as if he'd just been asked who had won first place in a foot race or just been baptized into the church.
"Those pants are very well ironed," the stranger said.
Elizabeth Byler Younts Your First Grandchildren Sayings By Elizabeth Byler Younts: Whose boys are those with the holes in their pants?"I cringed. How would my grandpa
I remember as a ranger the first time I stood alone on Inspiration Point over at Canyon Station looking out over this beautiful land. I thought to myself how lucky I was that my parents' and grandparents' generation had the vision and the determination to save it for us. Now it is our turn to make our own gift outright to those who will come after us, 15 years, 40 years, 100 years from now. I want to be as faithful to my grandchildren's generation as Old Faithful has been to ours. What better way can we add a new dimension to our third century of freedom?Gerald R. Ford Your First Grandchildren Sayings By Gerald R. Ford: I remember as a ranger the first time I stood alone on Inspiration Point over

It begins with the first step and it does not
They already knew that they would be telling people about the morning for a long time to come, maybe for the rest of their lives, and the taxi ride was the first attempt at a first draft of a story that would have to satisfy parents, siblings, children, and grandchildren.Nick Hornby Your First Grandchildren Sayings By Nick Hornby: They already knew that they would be telling people about the morning for a long
Should we now explain to UK couples who plan a family that stopping at two children, or at least having one less than first intended, is the simplest and biggest contribution anyone can make to leaving a habitable planet for our grandchildren?John Guillebaud Your First Grandchildren Sayings By John Guillebaud: Should we now explain to UK couples who plan a family that stopping at two
Official history has it that Vasco Nunez de Balboa was the first man to see, from a summit in Panama, two oceans at once. Were the natives blind?
Who first gave names to corn and potatoes and tomatoes and chocolate and the mountains and rivers of America? Were the natives mute?
The Pilgrims on the Mayflower heard Him: God said America was the promised land. Were the natives deaf?
Later on, the grandchildren of the Pilgrims seized the name and everything else. Now they are the Americans. And those of us who live in the other Americas, who are we?
Eduardo Galeano Your First Grandchildren Sayings By Eduardo Galeano: Official history has it that Vasco Nunez de Balboa was the first man to see,

A good book is like a good friend. It will stay with you for the rest of your life.

She had had her momentary flowering, a year, perhaps, of wildrose beauty, and then she had suddenly swollen like a fertilized fruit and grown hard and red and coarse, and then her life had been laundering, scrubbing, laundering, first for children, then for grandchildren, over thirty years. At the end of it she was still singing.George Orwell Your First Grandchildren Sayings By George Orwell: She had had her momentary flowering, a year, perhaps, of wildrose beauty, and then she
I've begun to appreciate the generational patterns that ripple out from our lives like stones dropped in water, pulsing outward even after we are gone. Although we have but one childhood, we relive it first through our children's and then our grandchildren's eyes.Anne Cassidy Your First Grandchildren Sayings By Anne Cassidy: I've begun to appreciate the generational patterns that ripple out from our lives like stones
So that's what we want is a secure and sovereign nation and, you know, I don't know that all of you are Latino. Some of you look a little more Asian to me. I don't know that. [Note: its the Hispanic Student Union. The whole room is Hispanic teenagers.] What we know, what we know about ourselves is that we are a melting pot in this country. My grandchildren are evidence of that. I'm evidence of that. I've been called the first Asian legislator in our Nevada State Assembly.Sharron Angle Your First Grandchildren Sayings By Sharron Angle: So that's what we want is a secure and sovereign nation and, you know, I

It was the first time in a half century that they had been so close and had enough time to look at each other with some serenity and they had seen each other for what they were: two old people, ambushed by death, who had nothing in common except the mercy of an ephemeral past that was no longer theirs but belonged to two young people who had vanished and who could have been their grandchildren.Gabriel Garcia Marquez Your First Grandchildren Sayings By Gabriel Garcia Marquez: It was the first time in a half century that they had been so close
The world turned, and new stories rose up, and the legends of the old days faltered a little, or turned themselves in their course to keep up with the lives of their people, and the lives of great-grandchildren of those they had first known.Robin McKinley Your First Grandchildren Sayings By Robin McKinley: The world turned, and new stories rose up, and the legends of the old days
