Grandmother

Famous quotes containing the word grandmother:

    A mother becomes a true grandmother the day she stops noticing the terrible things her children do because she is so enchanted with the wonderful things her grandchildren do.
    Lois Wyse (20th century)

    And William had dudgeon for the sightless beadle
    Who worshipped a God like a grandmother on ice-skates,
    For William saw two angels on the point of a needle
    As nobody since except W. B. Yeats.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    The suburban housewife—she was the dream image of the young American women and the envy, it was said, of women all over the world. The American housewife—freed by science and labor-saving appliances from the drudgery, the dangers of childbirth, and the illnesses of her grandmother ... had found true feminine fulfilment.
    Betty Friedan (b. 1921)
