Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Kiese Laymon
#1. Mama's antidote to being born a black boy on parole in Central Mississippi is not for us to seek freedom, but to insist on excellence at all times. Mama takes it personal when she realizes that I realize she is wrong. There ain't no antidote to life, I tell her. How free can you be if you really accept that white folks are the traffic cops of your life? Mama tells me that she is not talking about freedom. She says that she is talking about survival. #Quote by Kiese Laymon
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Emil Ferris
#2. Deeze says that most things in life aren't right or wrong. He says there's not too much black or white. To his eyes most stuff is like pencil shading. Lots of shades of gray. Mama says it's different. She believes it's either right or wrong. Me? I think they're both wrong. For me it's like a photograph. You have to look close. It looks like shades of gray, but it's really lots and lots of tiny dots of inky black on a perfect page of white, #Quote by Emil Ferris
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Glennon Doyle Melton
#3. We need to be Atticus. Hands in our pockets. Calm. Believing. So that our children will look at us and even with a fire raging in front of them, they'll say, "Huh. Guess it's not time to worry yet." Then we'll watch carefully. We'll just watch and wait and believe until God nods and says, "It's time. Tear open that gift, Mama. #Quote by Glennon Doyle Melton
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Kelly Rowland
#4. Honesty, like my mama always says, is always the best policy. #Quote by Kelly Rowland
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Elle Kennedy
#5. We're here to help ease you through the labor process. The mainstream media and health organizations feed you an endless supply of fear and paranoia, but the truth is that childbirth does not have to be a painful experience. Today we will start our journey to a joyful and pleasurable labor. These three classes will help you refocus your negative feelings, drawing in serenity and pushing out fear."

"Are we in a breathing class or signing up for a cult?" Tucker whispers.

Cult. Definitely cult.

"Partners, helpers, move into position behind the mama."

"I already hate this woman," I hiss as he crouches behind me.

"Because she called you mama or because she says it's not a painful experience?"

A man a few mats down raises his hand. "Where should we put our hands?"

"Great question, Mark."

Oh God, she remembers all our names.

"During labor, the appropriate position will be the lower back, but for today, we're concentrating on relaxation, so please place your hands on your partner's shoulders."

Next to me, one expectant mother is taking copious notes, as if Stacy in the peasant skirt is the oracle of laborhood, speaking the ten commandments of birthing.

"If she says, 'There's nothing to fear but fear itself,' we're out of here," I say a little too loudly.

The gunner and her equally serious partner turn around to glare at me. A burble of laughter threatens #Quote by Elle Kennedy
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Billie Holiday
#6. God Bless The Child"

Them that's got shall have
Them that's not shall lose
So the Bible says and it still is news
Mama may have, Papa may have
But God bless the child that's got his own, that's got his own

Yes the strong get smart
While the weak ones fade
Empty pockets don't ever make the grade
Mama may have, Papa may have
But God bless the child that's got his own, that's got his own

Money, you've got lots of friends
They're crowding around your door
But when you're gone and spending ends
They don't come no more
Rich relations give crusts of bread and such
You can help yourself, but don't take too much
Mama may have, Papa may have
But God bless the child that's got his own, that's got his own

Money you've got lots of friends
They're crowding around your door
But when you're gone and spending ends
They don't come no more
Rich relations give crusts of bread and such
You can help yourself, but don't take too much
Mama may have, Papa may have
But God bless the child that's got his own, that's got his own

Here just don't worry about nothing cause he's got his own
Yes, he's got his own #Quote by Billie Holiday

Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Kathy Evert
#11. I don't give a damn
What anybody says-
If you try
To bend your mind that far,
It disturbs your guts
Which lie right next
To where the soul is housed
In any human body that's been
Screwed by it's mother.
And then all night long
There are screams in the dark
Saying
Mama, don't. #Quote by Kathy Evert
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Jasmine Warga
#12. Mama says the word cake like it's just an ordinary food
which is strange since everyone knows that cakes are
made of magic. #Quote by Jasmine Warga
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Melina Marchetta
#13. Mama says that satisfaction isn't what I should search for. Respect is. Respect?
I detest that word. Probably because in this world you have to respect the wrong people for the wrong reasons. #Quote by Melina Marchetta
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Vicki Lawrence
#14. Everyone has a crazy old lady in their family like 'Mama.' No one ever comes up to me and says 'Mama' is just like them, so no one is ever offended by her. Even young people like to laugh at her. I think she helps kids appreciate their own grandmothers more. #Quote by Vicki Lawrence
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Jessie James Decker
#15. It's kind of cheesy, but my mama, who you all have seen on the show, says to cook for your man. She's Southern, so when he comes home, be pullin' a pie out of the oven. That's always been her advice, and you know what? It works. Your man wants to see you in the kitchen, puttin' some love into some food; it works for Eric, that's for sure. #Quote by Jessie James Decker
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Sarah Sundin
#16. No, you need to cry.' He gently pressed her head to his shoulder, knocking her cap askew. 'My mama says women need to cry every once in a while. Washes away all the weakness so you can stay strong. Always let a lady cry, she says. #Quote by Sarah Sundin
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Zeyn Joukhadar
#17. This is the street where Saint Paul stayed, where he fled after Allah blinded him with a flash of light on the road to Damascus," Mama says. "The street where the Lord sent Ananias to give Paul back his sight.'
'Why did God blind him?' I asked.
Abu Sayeed says, 'Maybe so he could give Paul his eyes. #Quote by Zeyn Joukhadar
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Erma Bombeck
#18. Girls mature faster than boys, cost more to raise, and statistics show that the old saw about girls not knowing about money and figures is a myth. Girls start to outspend boys before puberty - and they manage to maintain this lead until death or an ugly credit manager, whichever comes first.

Males are born with a closed fist. Girls are born with the left hand cramped in a position the size of an American Express card. Whenever a girl sees a sign reading, "Sale, Going Out of Business, Liquidation," saliva begins to form in her mouth, the palms of her hands perspire and the pituitary gland says, "Go, Mama." In the male, it is quite a different story. He has a gland that follows a muscle from the right arm down to the base of his billfold pocket. It's called "cheap."

Girls can slam a door louder, beg longer, turn tears on and off like a faucet, and invented the term, "You don't trust me." So much for "sugar and spice and everything nice" and "snips and snails and puppydog tails. #Quote by Erma Bombeck
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Sarah Rubin
#19. If Gran says, 'Reach for the stars
that way, if you miss, you'll land on the moon,' then Mama says, 'If you spend all your time reaching for the stars, don't come crying to me when you walk right into a tree. #Quote by Sarah Rubin
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Emily Murdoch
#20. Happiness is free, Mama says, as sure as the blinkin' stars, the withered arms the trees throw down for our fires, the waterproofin' on our skin, and the tongues of wind curlin' the walnut leaves before slidin' down our ears. #Quote by Emily Murdoch
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Nancy E. Turner
#21. Mama told me to make a special point to remember the best times of my life. There are so many hard things to live through, and latching on to the good things will give you strength to endure, she says. So I must remember this day. It is beautiful and this seems like the best time to live and the best place #Quote by Nancy E. Turner
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Lisa Kleypas
#22. He reached for me, and fast as lightning, he boxed my ears. All I remember is the world exploding. Cassandra says she helped me back to our room, and there was blood coming from my left ear. My right ear mended in a day or two, but I could only hear a little out of the left one, and there was a beating pain deep down. Soon I took ill with fever. Mama said that had nothing to do with the ear, but I think it did."
Pandora paused, unwilling to relate any of the distasteful details of her ear suppurating and draining. She glanced cautiously at Gabriel, whose face was averted. He was no longer playing with her braid. His hand had clenched around it until the muscles of his forearms and wrist stood out.
"Even after I recovered from the fever," Pandora said, "the hearing didn't come back all the way. But the worst part was that I kept losing my balance, especially at night. It made me afraid of the dark. Ever since then-" She stopped as Gabriel lifted his head.
His face was hard and murderous, the hellfrost in his eyes frightening her more than her father's fury ever had.
"That bloody son of a bitch," he said softly. "If he were still alive, I'd beat him with a thresher's flail."
Pandora reached out with a fluttering motion, patting the air near him. "No," she said breathlessly, "no, I wouldn't want that. I hated him for a long time, but now I feel sorry for him."
Gabriel caught her hand in midair, swift but gentle, as if it were a bird he wanted to hol #Quote by Lisa Kleypas
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Kristi Cook
#23. All I can think about is that English project due this week." I look over at Ryder with a faux scowl. "We're already way behind--you've always got some excuse. We should probably work on it tonight."
"Probably so," Ryder says with an exasperated-sounding sigh.
"That's the third project the two of you have been paired up on," Mama says, shaking her head. "I hope you two can behave well enough to get your work done properly. No more arguing like the last time."
We'd pretended to fight over a calculus project. Yes, a calculus project. Is there really any such thing?
"We're trying really hard to behave," I say, shooting Ryder a sidelong glance. "Right?"
His cheeks pinken deliciously at the innuendo. I love it when Ryder blushes. Totally adorable.
"Right," he mumbles, his gaze fixed on his lap. #Quote by Kristi Cook
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Jillian Dodd
#24. Dawson: "I was married to your mom for a long time. And I didn't know how you would feel about me dating someone." "It's okay, Daddy," Harlow says. "Mommy is in heaven. God is her boyfriend now." "I think she'd date Jesus. He's younger." Ava says. "Yes, Jesus," Harlow agrees. "Mama and Jesus. But Mama would make him shave his beard." I laugh loudly envisioning Whitney ordering Jesus around. #Quote by Jillian Dodd
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Kristen Callihan
#25. Mama always said a man was led by his stomach and his cock," she says from the rocking chair at my side, while she idle strums her guitar. "It was just a matter of figuring out which one needs the most appeasing at the moment. #Quote by Kristen Callihan
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Miles Teller
#26. First play I ever did was 'Footloose.' I played the part of Willard when I was 16. I think I wore my drama teacher's jeans and her belt - that's how small I was. I know a lot of Willard's back story from the musical that's not explored in the film. Like he's got this whole relationship with his mama, and he sings this song 'Mama Says.' #Quote by Miles Teller
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Elle Kennedy
#27. Footsteps approach the kitchen. Garrett wanders in, wiping sweat off his brow. When he notices Sabrina, he brightens. "Oh good. You're here. Hold on - gotta grab something."

She turns to me as if to say, Is he talking to me?

He's already gone, though, his footsteps thumping up the stairs.

At the table, Hannah runs a hand through her hair and gives me a pleading look. "Just remember he's your best friend, okay?"

That doesn't sound ominous.

When Garrett returns, he's holding a notepad and a ballpoint pen, which he sets on the table as he sits across from Sabrina. "Tuck," he says. "Sit. This is important."

I'm so baffled right now. Hannah's resigned expression doesn't help in lessening the confusion.

Once I'm seated next to Sabrina, Garrett flips open the notepad, all business. "Okay. So let's go over the names."

Sabrina raises an eyebrow at me.

I shrug, because I legitimately don't know what the fuck he's talking about.

"I've put together a solid list. I really think you're going to like these." But when he glances down at the page, his face falls. "Ah crap. We can't use any of the boy names."

"Wait." Sabrina holds up a hand, her brow furrowed. "You're picking names for our baby?"

He nods, busy flipping the page.

My baby mama gapes at me.

I shrug again.

"Just out of curiosity, what were the boy names?" Grace hedges, #Quote by Elle Kennedy
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Kristi Cook
#28. Actually," Mama says, "maybe I should see if Ryder'll come over here and stay with you."
"No way. Forget it. I told you. I'll be fine."
"I just hate the thought of you here all by yourself. Besides, Rob's leaving for Jackson in a few days, and Ryder'll be alone. He could come stay in the guest room."
She can't be serious. "What the heck, Mama? Why don't we just share a bed?"
"Aww, honey, you know I don't mean it like that," she says. #Quote by Kristi Cook
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Lizzy Ford
#29. I cannot stay, little one. He laughed quietly into my mind. I am too large. "But how will I take care of you?" You wish to take care of me? He tilted his head. "Yes, of course. Mama says if I awaken something, it must stay with me, because it's my responsibility. No neighbors can know, and especially not the government or they'll take you away. So I bring everything to my room." I looked him over skeptically. "You might fit in my closet. #Quote by Lizzy Ford
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Kristi Cook
#30. You're just pushing your food around, aren't you? You've barely taken two bites. I thought you loved Lou's Cornish hens."
"I do. I'm sorry. All I can think about is that English project due this week." I look over at Ryder with a faux scowl. "We're already way behind--you've always got some excuse. We should probably work on it tonight."
"Probably so," Ryder says with an exasperated-sounding sigh.
"That's the third project the two of you have been paired up on," Mama says, shaking her head. "I hope you two can behave well enough to get your work done properly. No more arguing like the last time."
We'd pretended to fight over a calculus project. Yes, a calculus project. Is there really any such thing?
"We're trying really hard to behave," I say, shooting Ryder a sidelong glance. "Right?"
His cheeks pinken deliciously at the innuendo. I love it when Ryder blushes. Totally adorable.
"Right," he mumbles, his gaze fixed on his lap.
Laura Grace gives us both a pointed look. "You two better learn to get along, you hear? You're going to be spending a lot of time together for the next four years."
Four years. Just the two of us--away from our meddling mamas. I have to bite my lip to force back the smile that's threatening to give us away.
"She's right," Mama says, nodding. "The only way I'm allowing Jemma to go to NYU is if she promises not to go off campus without Ryder to escort her."
Escort me? What is it, the 1950s or somethin #Quote by Kristi Cook
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Molly Harper
#31. Hello, little baby," I cooed. "I'm Auntie Jane. When your mama says it's OK, I'm going to take you guys to the library and museums and movies. I'll feed you food that'll make you hyper and nauseous, and then I'll bring you straight home. I'll help you hide your first tattoo. We're going to have a great time. #Quote by Molly Harper
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Ann Patchett
#32. Being a childless woman of childbearing age, I am a walking target for people's concerned analysis. No one looks at a single man with a Labrador retriever and says, "Will you look at the way he throws the tennis ball to that dog? Now there's a guy who wants to have a son." A dog, after all, is man's best friend, a comrade, a pal. But give a dog to a woman and people will say she is sublimating. If she says that she, in fact, doesn't want children, they will nod understandingly and say, "You just wait." For the record, I do not speak to my dog in baby talk, nor when calling her do I say, "Come to Mama. #Quote by Ann Patchett
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by J.A. Huss
#33. This is Mama Likes a Spankin', come back good, buddies." I look at Ronin. He shakes his head. "You don't want to know," he says. "Go ahead, Red Cheeks," Ford replies. #Quote by J.A. Huss
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Jennifer Archer
#34. Mama says it's just her nature. Some people are flowers, and some are thorns. #Quote by Jennifer Archer
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Kristi Cook
#35. Behind me, my phone buzzes with a new text.
Nan looks around me suspiciously. "Why are you hiding your cell phone under your pillow?"
Busted. "Because I thought you were Mama," I answer truthfully.
"And you didn't want her to know…what?"
I exhale slowly, trying to decide how much to reveal to her. I reach for my phone and drag it out. "You kind of caught me and Ryder texting."
"You and Ryder? Why is that a secret? Wait--do you mean you two were sexting?"
"Oh my God! No. Eww!" That's just so…tacky.
She shrugs. "Well, then, what's the big deal?"
I realize there's only one way to make her understand what a huge, enormous, monumental deal it is--I have to tell her the truth.
So I do.
When I'm finished, Nan just smiles and says, "It's about damn time you put that boy out of his misery. He's only been in love with you since…well, since forever."
I roll my eyes. "No, you've got it backward. We've hated each other since forever."
"Love, hate," she says with a smile. "Such a fine line between the two, isn't there?"
And you know what? I realize then that she's right. #Quote by Kristi Cook
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Jack Womack
#36. Mama says mine is a night mind. #Quote by Jack Womack
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Anne Moody
#37. I'm through with you. Yes, I am going to put you down. From now on, I am my own God. I am going to live by the rules I se for myself. I'll discard everything I was once taught about you. Then I'll be you. I'll be my own God, living my life as I see fit. Not as Mr. Charlie says I should live it, or Mama or anybody else. I shall do as I want in this society that apparently wasn't meant for me and my kind. If you are getting angry because I am talking to you like this, then just kill me, leave me here in this graveyard dead. Maybe thats where all of us belong anyway. Maybe then we wouldn't have to suffer so much. At the rate we are being killed now, we'll all be soon dead anyway. #Quote by Anne Moody
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Natasha D. Lane
#38. My mama says people saying no is just like using the back door to get into the house. You can still get in, just a different way. #Quote by Natasha D. Lane
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Jennifer Donnelly
#39. He loves the sparkling fountains and their cascades and says the strangest things as he watches them.
they look like stars breaking.
Or, They look like Mama's diamonds.
Or, They look like all the souls in heaven. #Quote by Jennifer Donnelly
Mama Says Waterboy quotes by Nina Hagen
#40. Jesus Christ will be the leader of an intergalactic earth evacuation. We're getting some earth leaders up there to check the mother ship. The Bible says that the sky will be glorious and Christ will come back to us all. #Quote by Nina Hagen
