#3. I had a mother who left when I was a child. I didn't miss her. Maeve was there, with her red coat and her black hair, standing at the bottom of the stairs, the white marble floor with the little black squares, the snow coming down in glittering sheets in the windows behind her, the windows as wide as a movie screen, the ship in the waves of the grandfather clock rocking the minutes away. #Quote by Ann Patchett

Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by M. Night Shyamalan
#8. My grandparents were classic Indian grandparents. My grandmother would put so much powder on her face that it was like a Kabuki play and she'd come down the stairs. I was like 8 or 9 years old. My grandfather apparently had no teeth because he would take out his teeth and put them in a glass, and then he would try to scare me with it. I started to try to scare them when I was a little older. #Quote by M. Night Shyamalan

Hell I am. Why?

Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by John Tavener
#11. The music is something outside myself that's also inside myself ... Music and a sense of another presence always went hand in hand. Even when I was three, I would improvise music, and my maternal grandfather would act as an audience and used to applaud. I would imitate things like thunder and rain. #Quote by John Tavener
Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by Johnny Depp
#12. I marketed pens - on the phone. But the beauty of the gig was that you had to call these strangers and say, 'Hi, how ya doing?' You made up a name, like, 'Hey, it's Edward Quartermaine from California. You're eligible to receive this grandfather clock or a trip to Tahiti.' You promise them all these things if they buy a gross of pens. #Quote by Johnny Depp
Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#13. Let our Fathers and Grandfathers be valued for their Goodness, ourselves for our own. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by Judith McNaught
#14. I'm familiar with the myth, I'm merely surprised that a female
would be familiar with the classics."
"You must have a very limited experience with my sex," Alexandra
said, surprised. "My grandfather said most women are every bit as
intelligent as men."
She saw his eyes take on the sudden gleam of suppressed laughter
and assumed, mistakenly, that he was amused by her assessment of
female intelligence rather than her remark about his inexperience
with women. #Quote by Judith McNaught
Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by Laurie Halse Anderson
#15. Odysseus had twenty years to shed his battle skin. My grandfather left the battlefield in France and rode home in a ship that crawled across the ocean slowly so he could catch his breath. I get on a plane in hell and get off, hours later, at home. #Quote by Laurie Halse Anderson
Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by Louise Penny
#16. One of the elders told him that when he was a boy his grandfather came to him one day and said he had two wolves fighting inside him. One was gray, the other black. The gray one wanted his grandfather to be courageous, and patient, and kind. The other, the black one, wanted his grandfather to be fearful and cruel. This upset the boy, and he thought about it for a few days then returned to his grandfather. He asked, 'Grandfather, which of the wolves will win?'
The abbot smiled slightly and examined the Chief Inspector. 'Do you know what his grandfather said?'
Gamache shook his head ...
'The one I feed,' said Dom Philippe. #Quote by Louise Penny

Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by William Cobbett
#18. Having still in my recollection so many excellent men, to whose grandfathers, upon the same spots, my grandfather had yielded cheerful obedience and reverence, it is not without sincere sorrow that I have beheld many of the sons of these men driven from their fathers' mansions, or holding them as little better than tenants or stewards, while the swarms of Placemen, Pensioners, Contractors, and Nabobs ... have usurped a large part of the soil. #Quote by William Cobbett
Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by David Grossman
#19. And then my grandfather explained -in his language- that utopias are not for mortals. And that people are like flies, that the stories they are told must be like flypaper. Utopias are gold-covered paper, he said, and flypaper is covered in everything man secretes from his body and his life. Especially the suffering. And our hope is that its measure is the measure of man, and forgiveness. #Quote by David Grossman
Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by Thi Bui

#23. Zia's senile grandfather? Nope. That was Ra, god of the sun, first divine pharaoh of Egypt and archenemy of Apophis. Last spring we'd gone on a quest to find him and revive him from his twilight sleep, trusting he would rise in all his glory and fight the Chaos snake for us. #Quote by Rick Riordan
Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by Franz Kafka
#24. My grandfather used to say: Life is astoundingly short. To me, looking back over it, life seems so foreshortened that I scarcely understand, for instance, how a young man can decide to ride over to the next village without being afraid that -not to mention accidents- even the span of a normal happy life may fall far short of the time needed for such a journey. #Quote by Franz Kafka

my
my own grandfather. #Quote by Charles Dickens

#26. After my grandfather died I went down to the basement of my family house where my family kept books, anthologies and things and there was an anthology without any names attached to it and I read a poem called Spellbound and I somehow attached it to my grandfather's death and I thought my grandfather had written it. #Quote by Edward Hirsch
Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by Tana French

Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by Nigel Mansell

Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by Eric Laster
#29. The princess turns to him, serious. 'You are the one my great-grandfather spoke of: a denizen of Earth wearing a dirty apron who falls down a shaft and lands in sticky goo to lead the Brundeedle race out of Woe Time.': #Quote by Eric Laster
Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by Ian McDonald
#30. Grandfather was a tree #Quote by Ian McDonald
Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by Zen Cho
#31. The British are a peculiar race. My grandfather was transported to Malaya because they needed tin, and yet I've never once met a Briton to whom the thought had occurred that perhaps I spoke English because I am from one of their colonies. It is as if I were a piece of chess in a game played by people who never look down at their fingers. #Quote by Zen Cho
Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by Eric Liu
#32. My grandfather was a general in the Nationalist Chinese Air Force during World War II, and I grew up hearing the pilot stories and seeing pictures of him in uniform. #Quote by Eric Liu

Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by Edward Norton
#36. When I think of my background, if I was privileged on any level, it was in terms of the kind of exposure to experience and bohe-mian cultural influence that my parents and my uncles and my grandfather gave me. On both sides I come from an extremely eccentric, artsy, intellectually intense, activist family. #Quote by Edward Norton
Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by Charles J. Shields
#37. Bernard Vonnegut, named for his paternal grandfather, was born August 29, 1914. He was a serious-looking little boy, even in informal photographs. #Quote by Charles J. Shields
Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by Daphne Du Maurier
#38. The warm night claimed her. In a moment it was part of her. She walked on the grass, and her shoes were instantly soaked. She flung up her arms to the sky. Power ran to her fingertips. Excitement was communicated from the waiting trees, and the orchard, and the paddock; the intensity of their secret life caught at her and made her run. It was nothing like the excitement of ordinary looking forward, of birthday presents, of Christmas stockings, but the pull of a magnet - her grandfather had shown her once how it worked, little needles springing to the jaws - and now night and the sky above were a vast magnet, and the things that waited below were needles, caught up in the great demand. ("The Pool") #Quote by Daphne Du Maurier
Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by William Faulkner
#39. Nowadays he drove the car into town to fetch his grandfather from habit alone, and though he still considered forty five miles an hour merely cruising speed, he no longer took cold and fiendish pleasure in turning curves on two wheels or in detaching mules from wagons by striking the whiffle-trees with his bumper in passing. #Quote by William Faulkner
Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by Judd Apatow
#40. My grandfather was Bob Shad, one of those legendary jazz and blues producers - he worked with Charlie Parker and Dinah Washington, and he produced Janis Joplin's album [1967's Big Brother & the Holding Company]. He always owned small labels as well - he had a label called Mainstream Records in the 70s. #Quote by Judd Apatow
Mahathirs Grandfather quotes by Erin Nicholas
#41. If it was an emergency, you would have hung up and called back. Over and over again. Leaving progressively more and more threatening messages about what you were going to do to me when you did finally get a hold of me," he told her, signing off on the bottom of the letter he'd just finished and moving it to the side.

"I would never do that," she said.

"No?" When she did finally send him reports it was always in folders that were named things like I'm Not Your Fucking Secretary and If You Ask Me to Get You Coffee It Will Definitely Have Turtle Shit In It.

"If I really needed your attention, I'd start texting. Photos. Naked photos."

His entire body reacted to that. He cleared his throat. "I would definitely - ."

"Of my grandfather."

Bennett paused. Then groaned. He knew her grandfather. Leo Landry was a great guy. Funny, down-to-earth, honest, loyal. And someone that Bennett absolutely did not ever want to see naked. Ever.

"You're an evil woman."

"Remember that. #Quote by Erin Nicholas
