Generation Gap quotes by Alan Bradley
#3. A conversation between a person of my age and one of hers is like a map of a maze: There are things that each of us knows, and that each of us knows the other knows, that can be talked about. But there are things that each of us knows that the other doesn't know we know, which must not be spoken of, no matter what. Because of our ages, and for reasons of decency, there are what Daffy would refer to as taboos: forbidden topics which we may stroll among like islands of horse dung in the road that, although perfectly evident to both of us, must not be mentioned or kicked at any cost.
It's a strange world when you come right down to it. #Quote by Alan Bradley
Generation Gap quotes by Heidi W. Durrow

the Boer or the Crimean? It was amazing how old people could talk about The War, as though that meant something. #Quote by John Christopher
Generation Gap quotes by Cate East
#9. This is because only two things can fulfill millennials: First is to be completely understood, accepted and respected by a loyal companion whom they respect themselves - a lifelong seduction with someone they can call their own. This level of understanding and intimacy is the only way they can heal the wounds of their treacherous childhood. The second thing is having enough money to live a lifelong vacation and help people along the way - as they are an emotional generation, they are actually compassionate about their fellowmen though they may not seem like it. Nothing dissatisfies this cohort more than the need to fend for basic necessities, as it goes against their lifelong quest to find fulfillment and reduces them to their base human urges they consider beneath them, like fighting for resources and food - an anathema to this generation who puts a premium on self-actualization. #Quote by Cate East
Generation Gap quotes by Miles Anthony Smith
#10. When presented with an open door in your job, drive a Mack truck through it. #Quote by Miles Anthony Smith
Generation Gap quotes by Miles Anthony Smith

Generation Gap quotes by Miles Anthony Smith
#12. Do you want a level of income to fit your lifestyle or a lifestyle to fit your income level? #Quote by Miles Anthony Smith
Generation Gap quotes by Anton Chekhov
#13. You're not content in your position as a factory owner and a rich heiress, you don't believe in your right to it, and now you can't sleep, which, of course, is certainly better than if you were content, slept soundly, and thought everything was fine. Your insomnia is respectable; in any event, it's a good sign. In fact, for our parents such a conversation as we're having now would have been unthinkable; they didn't talk at night, they slept soundly, but we, our generation, sleep badly, are anguished, talk a lot, and keep trying to decide if we're right or not.
- A Medical Case #Quote by Anton Chekhov
Generation Gap quotes by Mary Brave Bird
#14. We didn't have a generation gap, we had a generation Grand Canyon. #Quote by Mary Brave Bird
Generation Gap quotes by T. S. Eliot

Generation Gap quotes by Lynda I Fisher
#16. The young man pities his elders, fearing the day he, too, will join their ranks. The elderly man pities the younger generation, well-knowing the trials and tribulations that lie ahead of them. #Quote by Lynda I Fisher
Generation Gap quotes by Miles Anthony Smith
#17. Labor saving devices have destroyed many jobs but have given rise to many new ones. It simply is up to us if we are going to resist or embrace the future. #Quote by Miles Anthony Smith
Generation Gap quotes by Mrs. Oliphant
#18. I suppose every generation has a conceit of itself which elevates it, in its own opinion, above that which comes after it. ("The Open Door") #Quote by Mrs. Oliphant
Generation Gap quotes by Kahlil Gibran
#19. It is wrong to think that love comes from long companionship and persevering courtship. Love is the offspring of spiritual affinity and unless that affinity is created in a moment, it will not be created for years or even generations. #Quote by Kahlil Gibran
Generation Gap quotes by Philip Womack
#20. Wart meets Merlin for the first time – only for Merlin, who lives backwards, it's the last time. The old wizard weeps and the boy can't understand why. It's a powerful expression of the gulf between the ancient and the young. #Quote by Philip Womack

Generation Gap quotes by Cate East

Generation Gap quotes by Susan Richards Shreve

The rules for raising children had gone out with her parents generation of daughters who had lived as Lucy had, in patient silence, acting by standards which had lasted generations, waiting to grow up to make their decisions, following the patterns of their own lives. #Quote by Susan Richards Shreve

#33. It is fortunate that each generation does not comprehend its own ignorance. We are thus enabled to call our ancestors barbarous. #Quote by Charles Dudley Warner
Generation Gap quotes by Abraham Hicks
#34. Children coming forth today have a greater capacity to deal with the greater variety of information that is coming forward than you did. They deliberately are coming forth into this environment where there is more to contemplate. This generation gap that you are talking about, it has ever been thus. Each new generation, every new individual, that comes forth, is doing with you having prepared a different platform for them to proceed from. There is this thing that gets in the way of that that says, "I'm the parent. I got here first. I know more than you do." From the children's perspective, and from the purity of their Nonphysical perspective, that they are saying is, "You're the parent. You got here first. You prepared a platform that I am leaping off from - and my leap will be beyond anything that yo have ever known. #Quote by Abraham Hicks
Generation Gap quotes by Miles Anthony Smith
#35. In the name of all that is holy, please consider the wages of a particular profession before you select that degree plan. #Quote by Miles Anthony Smith
Generation Gap quotes by Balli Kaur Jaswal
#36. You waste everything because you've always had everything. #Quote by Balli Kaur Jaswal
Generation Gap quotes by Miles Anthony Smith
#37. Whereas previous generations had to face some unpredictability, current generations are facing unprecedented levels of instability. #Quote by Miles Anthony Smith
Generation Gap quotes by Charles   Lee
#38. Truly the worst generation. Stupid children nowadays are nothing like my time. We were far more independent. We weren't so weak that we needed to lean on others to make it in this world. Either you were the best or you were trash. That was the bottom line. You can't even fight a rebellion with your own strength. #Quote by Charles Lee
Generation Gap quotes by Tony Blair
#39. Mine is the first generation able to contemplate the possibility that we may live our entire lives without going to war or sending our children to war. #Quote by Tony Blair
Generation Gap quotes by Dervla Murphy
#40. In the travellers' world, social media have enlarged the generation gap. The internet has brought a change in the very concept of travel as a process taking one away from the familiar into the unknown. Now the familiar is not left behind and the unknown has become familiar even before one leaves home. Unpredictability – to my generation the salt that gave travelling its savour – seems unnecessary if not downright irritating to many of the young. The sunset challenge – where to sleep? – has been banished by the ease of booking into a hostel or organised campsite with a street plan provided by the internet. Moreover, relatives and friends evidently expect regular reassurance about the traveller's precise location and welfare – and vice versa, the traveller needing to know that all is well back home.
Notoriously, dependence on instant communication with distant family and friends is known to stunt the development of self-reliance. Perhaps that is why, amongst younger travellers, one notices a new timidity. #Quote by Dervla Murphy
Generation Gap quotes by George Eliot
#41. Family likeness has often a deep sadness in it. Nature, that great tragic dramatist, knits us together by bone and muscle, and divides us by the subtler web of our brains; blends yearning and repulsion; and ties us by our heart-strings to the beings that jar us at every movement. #Quote by George Eliot
Generation Gap quotes by Sara Sheridan
#42. Didn't young people care what the generation before them had achieved? And if not, why had everyone gone through those grim difficult wartime years? #Quote by Sara Sheridan
Generation Gap quotes by Allen Ginsberg
#43. Amazed Generation! Found Generation!
Diamond Generation! Brainwashed
Generation! Amnesiac
T.V. Bureaucracy Voidoids!
New Wave Punk Generation!
Neutron Bomb blast Babies!
Apocalypse Spermatozoa!
Did you grow up imbibing
Microchip sex waters?
Will you marry me in the
next Millennium?
Must I wait for the Great Year?

- Listening to Susan Sontag #Quote by Allen Ginsberg
Generation Gap quotes by Alex Steffen
#44. I think there's a gigantic generation gap in terms of how people understand the Internet and how much they think technology is an important factor in social change. #Quote by Alex Steffen
Generation Gap quotes by Charles Jackson
#45. He supposed he was only one of several million persons of his generation who had grown up and, somewhere around thirty, made the upsetting discovery that life wasn't going to pan out the way you'd always expected it would; and why this realization should have thrown him and not them - or not too many of them - was something he couldn't fathom. Life offered none of those prizes you'd been looking forward to since adolescence (he less than others, but looking forward to them all the same, if only out of curiosity). Adulthood came through with none of the pledges you'd been led somehow to believe in; the future still remained the future-illusion; a non-existent period of constantly-receding promise, hinting fulfillment, yet forever withholding the rewards. All the things that had never happened yet were never going to happen after all. It was a mug's game and there ought to be a law. But there wasn't any law, there was no rhyme or reason; and with the sour-grapes attitude of "Why the hell should there be" - which is as near as you ever came to sophistication - you retired within yourself and compensated for the disappointment by drink, by subsisting on daydreams, by living in a private world of your own making (hell or heaven, what did it matter?), by accomplishing or becoming in fancy what you could never bring about in fact. #Quote by Charles Jackson
Generation Gap quotes by Frank Luntz
#46. I tell this joke about Barack Obama is the best communicator of our generation: The guy reads a teleprompter better than any Hollywood actor. John McCain, his opponent - Stevie Wonder reads a teleprompter better than John McCain. #Quote by Frank Luntz
Generation Gap quotes by Mark Shuttleworth
#47. I don't expect my flight to produce a generation of astronauts and cosmonauts back home, but I hope it will encourage people to pursue their dreams. #Quote by Mark Shuttleworth
Generation Gap quotes by Brice Marden
#48. I'm a professional artist, that's how I make my living. So I watch the market. There is, it seems to me, a lot of pure financial speculation, and I don't think that's terribly healthy. Though as long as the money is getting back to the artist, I think that's good. I'm very happy younger artists can make money faster than we could. And we were making it faster than a generation before us. #Quote by Brice Marden
Generation Gap quotes by William Maxwell
#49. At that period, rising in the world meant giving up working with your hands in favor of work in a store or an office. The people who lived in town had made it, and turned their backs socially on those who had not but were still growing corn and wheat out there in the country. What seemed like an impassable gulf was only the prejudice of a single generation, which refused to remember its own not very remote past. #Quote by William Maxwell
Generation Gap quotes by Amy Rodriguez
#50. I love shopping. It's one of my favorite things to do with friends! My favorite stores are H&M, J.Crew, Gap, and Nordstrom. #Quote by Amy Rodriguez
Generation Gap quotes by Stephen Harrigan
#51. Lonesome Dove is a great book that had the rare fortune of being made into a great movie. And now, through Bill Wittliff's photographs, we have a third generation of Lonesome Dove artistry. The same creative power and conviction that allowed Larry McMurtry to transform a workaday scenario for an unproduced screenplay into one of the greatest novels of our time, and that transformed that novel into the greatest western movie ever made, are on display in this collection. A Book of Photographs from Lonesome Dove is a masterpiece begot by a masterpiece begot by a masterpiece. #Quote by Stephen Harrigan
Generation Gap quotes by Margaret Thatcher
#52. No generation has a free hold on this earth. All we have is a life tenancy-with a full repairing lease. #Quote by Margaret Thatcher
Generation Gap quotes by Al Gore
#53. This is not a political issue. This is a moral issue. It affects the survival of human civilization. It is not a question of Left vs. Right; it is a question of right vs. wrong. Put simply, it is wrong to destroy the habitability of our planet and ruin the prospects of every generation that follows ours. #Quote by Al Gore
Generation Gap quotes by Chris Murray
#54. The commitment gap is the massive distance between "yes" and "maybe #Quote by Chris Murray
Generation Gap quotes by Ndaba Mandela
#55. There has to come a time when we children of apartheid, black and white, say to each other, "Look, my grandparents were not right with your grandparents. My parents were not right with your parents. But I want to be right with you." We have to be the generation who understands that racism, sexism, homophobia, religious bigotry - inequality in all its ugly guises - splinters the most powerful asset available to humankind: unity. #Quote by Ndaba Mandela
Generation Gap quotes by James E. Faust
#56. The gap between what is popular and what is righteous is widening. #Quote by James E. Faust
Generation Gap quotes by Debra Holland
#57. Playfully, he tapped her nose. "If men were the ones to have babies, the human population would die out within a generation. #Quote by Debra Holland
Generation Gap quotes by Josh McDowell

Generation Gap quotes by Millard Drexler
#59. Ann Taylor - great name, great real estate, shitty business. Gap -great name, great real estate, declining business. J.Crew - Hellooo? Great name, better fashion image than the Gap. #Quote by Millard Drexler
Generation Gap quotes by Monica Eady
#60. I'm growing weary of passivity in the face of blatant sexism, racism, cultural privilege, wealth gap, and structural game rigging and the mass media's almost desperation to brand/rationalize them as things other than what they are. #Quote by Monica Eady
Generation Gap quotes by Xinran
#61. (As a "grandchild of a capitalist household"
At school, I was forbidden to take singing and dancing lessons with the other girls because I was not to "pollute" the arena of the revolution. Even though I was short-sighted, I was not allowed to sit in the front row in class because the best places were reserved for the children born to peasants, workers or soldiers; they were deemed to have 'straight roots and red shoots'. Similarly, I was forbidden to stand in the front row during PE lessons, though I was the smallest in the class, because the place nearest the teacher were for the 'next generation of the revolution'. #Quote by Xinran
Generation Gap quotes by Robert Downey, Jr.
#62. If you're raised with a poverty mentality, nothing is going to change it. I do know some really stingy billionaires. I come from such a generation of hand-to-mouthers. #Quote by Robert Downey, Jr.
Generation Gap quotes by Hubert H. Humphrey
#63. The pursuit of peace resembles the building of a great cathedral. It is the work of a generation. In concept it requires a mater-architect; in execution, the labors of many. #Quote by Hubert H. Humphrey
Generation Gap quotes by Richard Dawkins
#64. If God wanted to forgive our sins, why not just forgive them, without having himself tortured and executed in payment - thereby, incidentally, condemning remote future generations of Jews to pogroms and persecution as 'Christ-killers': did that hereditary sin pass down in the semen too? #Quote by Richard Dawkins
Generation Gap quotes by P. J. O'Rourke
#65. Greatest generation came through some stuff that we can't even imagine - the Depression, World War I - and all they wanted after that was a breather and a calm and a quiet life, and they get us. #Quote by P. J. O'Rourke

Generation Gap quotes by Amit Kalantri
#68. The most unlucky generation is the one which couldn't produce a hero to look upto. #Quote by Amit Kalantri
Generation Gap quotes by Tina Fey
#69. Either way, everything will be fine. But if you have an opinion, please feel free to offer it to me through the gap in the door of a public restroom. Everyone else does. #Quote by Tina Fey
Generation Gap quotes by D. A. Carson
#70. To assume the gospel in one generation is to lose it in the next. #Quote by D. A. Carson
Generation Gap quotes by Erich Maria Remarque
#71. But probably that's the way of the world - when we have finally learned something we're too old to apply it - and so it goes, wave after wave, generation after generation. No one learns anything at all from anyone else. #Quote by Erich Maria Remarque

Generation Gap quotes by Martin Windrow
#74. Unlike the huge majority of the current generation in the West, the men on both sides at Dien Bien Phu did not live at a time or in places where they enjoyed the luxury of disregarding [that war is what human beings do]; and we, who are lifelong civilians, have not earned the right to sit in judgement over them. #Quote by Martin Windrow
Generation Gap quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#75. if Substance is Life, is the Subject not Death? Insofar as, for Hegel, the basic feature of pre-subjective Life is the "spurious infinity" of the eternal reproduction of the life substance through the incessant movement of the generation and corruption of its elements - that is, the "spurious infinity" of a repetition without progress - the ultimate irony we encounter here is that Freud, who called this excess of death over life the "death drive," conceived it precisely as repetition, as a compulsion to repeat. #Quote by Slavoj Zizek
Generation Gap quotes by Joel R. Beeke
#76. with their pens, and no less great with their swords - fearing God very much, and fearing men very little, - they were a generation of men who have never received from their country the honor that they deserve. #Quote by Joel R. Beeke
Generation Gap quotes by John Madden

Generation Gap quotes by Mike Tyson

Generation Gap quotes by Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
#80. Future generations will judge us
not by what we say, but what we do. #Quote by Ellen Johnson Sirleaf
Generation Gap quotes by Warren Buffett
#81. I don't really think that, as a society, we [americans] want to confer blessings on generation after generation who contribute nothing to society, simply because somebody in the far distant past happened to amass a great sum of wealth. #Quote by Warren Buffett
Generation Gap quotes by Steven Magee
#82. It is not sufficient to produce the next generation. You must also teach the new generation how to survive in an abnormal toxic world. #Quote by Steven Magee
Generation Gap quotes by Robby Benson
#83. All things take time. A lot of my films still run on cable and are in video stores, and there's a whole generation that doesn't know who I am. So, it's a dichotomy. In some people's minds I may never grow up. #Quote by Robby Benson
Generation Gap quotes by Daymond John
#84. Fortunately, right now 'entrepreneurship' is one of the business world's biggest buzz words and so many young people in our country are looking up to this new generation of CEO's as their modern day rock stars. Whenever you have that effect, it makes the job of promoting entrepreneurship much easier. #Quote by Daymond John
Generation Gap quotes by Gary Shteyngart
#85. It's just a passing thing,' Vishnu had told me about his girlfriend's beliefs. 'It's like their way of assimilating into the West. It's like a social club. One more generation, it'll be over. #Quote by Gary Shteyngart
Generation Gap quotes by Tom Verlaine
#86. I have a real soft spot for flying saucer songs and Frenkenstein songs. When I was a kid the first record I ever really liked was called "The Mummy", and the flip-side was called "The Beat Generation" which Richard Hell later re-wrote as "The Blank Generation". I thought it was the greatest thing I had ever heard. I didn't like Elvis much then, but I was very young. When I was a kid I used to play that monster all the time! #Quote by Tom Verlaine
Generation Gap quotes by Dave Barry
#87. When my generation was your age, we took crazy risks. The wildest thing was - prepare to be shocked - we deliberately ingested carbohydrates! #Quote by Dave Barry
Generation Gap quotes by V V Brown
#88. I've kind of touched on the youth generation, what the concept of fame, what does it actually, really mean.I've kind of touched on the youth generation, what the concept of fame, what does it actually, really mean. #Quote by V V Brown
Generation Gap quotes by Karan Bajaj
#89. The first novel that I wrote was because I was having very interesting sorts of experiences, for Indians of my generation. #Quote by Karan Bajaj
Generation Gap quotes by Kilroy J. Oldster
#90. Life is a crapshoot. It is also brief. No generation is invulnerable to the formidable and grave powers of creation and obliteration that time renders. All people are subject to the vagrancies of time's steady pulse and subordinated to brute chance engendered when pulling the levers of fate found in our risk-filled environment. We can tilt the odds in our favor of living happily to a ripe old age by displaying a high degree of awareness and exercising self-control. We must rightfully display pride in our lives by claiming responsibility for ourselves and by taking on every challenge without mental equivocation. I seek to conquer personal fears and employ honest effort, energy, endurance, and enthusiasm supplemented with booster shots of intellectual integrity to become my personal master. Self-mastery, self-discipline, conscientious study, uncompromising integrity, and ethical awareness form the foundation stones of all religions and these qualities anchor every person of high character. While no personal medicine wheel is without faults and frailties, a person who exhibits an annealed temperament constantly searches inward to improve him or herself while maintaining a vigilant eye upon fulfilling their caregiver responsibilities. #Quote by Kilroy J. Oldster
Generation Gap quotes by James White Fellow Of INSTAAR
#91. We need leaders, we need political leaders and we need business leaders, and my hope for this book is that it helps create that next generation of business leaders that will lead us into the future. #Quote by James White Fellow Of INSTAAR
