Grandparents Day

Famous quotes containing the words grandparents and/or day:

    Another appealing aspect to having grandparents is that they do help, to give [your child] a sense of continuity—of his place in the world and in the generations. Not only do grandparents help him intellectually to comprehend that there are parents of parents, but they also aid him in understanding where he fits in the succession of things. Even a very young child can begin to feel a sense of rootedness and history.
    Lawrence Balter (20th century)

    The Spacious Firmament on high,
    With all the blue Ethereal Sky,
    And spangled Heav’ns, a Shining Frame,
    Their great Original proclaim:
    Th’ unwearied Sun, from day to day,
    Does his Creator’s Pow’r display,
    And publishes to every Land
    The Work of an Almighty Hand.
    Joseph Addison (1672–1719)
