A Bit of Wisdom from Grandma Moses

Hoosick Falls, NY…Anna Mary Robertson Moses, September 7, 1860 – December 13, 1961 or Grandma Moses, an iconic American folk artist who didn’t start her painting career until she was 78.

“A strange thing is memory, and hope; one looks backward, and the other forward; one is of today, the other of tomorrow. Memory is history recorded in our brain, memory is a painter, it paints pictures of the past and of the day.”

“I look back on my life like a good day’s work, it was done and I am satisfied with it.”

“If I hadn’t started painting, I would have raised chickens.”

“Life is what we make it, always has been, always will be.”
