Nuns Quotes:

The picture of Mother Teresa that I remember from my childhood is of a short, sari-wearing woman scurrying down a red gravel path between manicured lawns. She would have in tow one or two slower-footed, sari-clad young Indian nuns. We thought her a freak. Probably we’d picked up on unvoiced opinions of our Loreto nuns.

Bharati Mukherjee

I remember one time when all the nuns in my Catholic grade school got around in a semicircle, me and Mom in the middle, and they said, ‘Mrs. Farley, the children at school are laughing at Christopher, not with him.’ I thought, ‘Who cares? As long as they’re laughing.’

Chris Farley

Thurgood Marshall

I had an Irish Catholic education. Horrible nuns, vindictive and cruel.

Dalai Lama

I did 12 years with nuns, you know. So I came out of it going, like, ‘I think Jesus is all right.’ The rest of it I think stinks to the high heavens.

Denis Leary

Maitake mushrooms are known in Japan as ‘the dancing mushroom.’ According to a Japanese legend, a group of Buddhist nuns and woodcutters met on a mountain trail, where they discovered a fruiting of maitake mushrooms emerging from the forest floor. Rejoicing at their discovery of this delicious mushroom, they danced to celebrate.

Paul Stamets

Hearing nuns’ confessions is like being stoned to death with popcorn.

Fulton J. Sheen

Vera Wang

I admire certain priests and nuns who go off on their own and do God’s work on their own, who help in the ghettos, but as far as the institution of the church is concerned, I think it is despicable.

I went to a school run by Catholic nuns. They were really strict.

Sofia Vergara

I was raised as a Catholic, but I didn’t like the Catholic Church at all. I thought the nuns were mean.

Imelda May

Monica Besra, a Bengali woman from a remote Indian village, was reportedly suffering from a malignant ovarian tumor when she went, in 1998, to a hospice founded by Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity. Nuns at the mission reportedly placed a medallion with Teresa’s image on Besra’s abdomen, and the tumor disappeared.

George A. Romero

There are many photos of Catholic priests and nuns marching in the Civil Rights movement, most notably at the March on Selma, Ala. in 1965. However, the history of Catholicism in this country tells a different story.

When I was 13, I entered the seminary in the hope of becoming a priest. But I often found myself helping the nuns in the kitchen and thus discovered my passion for cooking. I began to cultivate my skills and aspirations at the age of 15, when I embarked on my first apprenticeship.

Joel Robuchon

Rush Limbaugh, we expect nonsense from him. But the Vatican, that’s another story. When the Vatican is so threatened that it launches attacks on nuns, well, you know what they say in politics, a hit dog hollers.

Jennifer Granholm

One of my earliest memories… I knew three full verses of the Star Spangled Banner when I was seven or eight years old. And one of the nuns discovered this phenomenon and I was actually sent around from classroom to classroom to do the whole thing.

When I was a kid, a pickleball hit me in the back of the head, and I had memory problems. I was in a boarding school and the nuns gave me poems to remember to try and get the memory going again.

C. C. H. Pounder

‘Philomena’ was even better than I had expected. I was so pleased to see the evil Irish nuns thoroughly exposed, and I thought Judi Dench gave a flawless performance, as did everybody else.

Claire Tomalin

I was such a messer. I would go to my room and pretend to study, but I’d really just take a nap. I was suspended twice as I was such a brat, but the nuns loved me so I got away with it for as long as I could.

Vogue Williams

I went to a strict elementary school with nuns, and uniforms that I’m pretty sure were made out of sandpaper. It was an academic, sports-oriented place. I liked to read, and wanted to act, and didn’t try out for volleyball. I was weird. The other girls would dip my hair in ink and stuff.

Zosia Mamet

And if the imam and the Muslim leadership in that community is so intent on building bridges, then they should voluntarily move the mosque away from ground zero and move it whether it’s uptown or somewhere else, but move it away from that area, the same as the pope directed the Carmelite nuns to move a convent away from Auschwitz.

Peter T. King

Priests and nuns actually meditated. It’s not religious. It’s about centering yourself.

Tony Cardenas

In my youngest days, the nuns at my grammar school drummed into us that we were in this world to make it a better place – not just for ourselves, but for other people, too. So from the very beginning, I’ve been driven by this idea that we have to make a difference, and it’s one of the reasons I went into law in the first place.

Cherie Blair

I am a person whose father had no religion but who went to the nuns for a couple of years. And I think I’m the same: On one hand, I pray; on the other hand, I don’t believe. I am constantly between the two.

Anjelica Huston

My well-meaning parents decided to send me to a Catholic grade school to get a better education than I probably would have received at the local public school. They had no way of knowing that the school nuns, who were the majority of the teachers at this particular parochial school, were right-wing, card-carrying John Birch Society members.

Jim Starlin

History is filled with weird but true stories of social contagion – from dancing manias in the Middle Ages to nuns pretending to be cats in the 19th century to laughing epidemics of Tanzanian school girls in the 1960s.

Susannah Cahalan

It’s an oversimplication to say that more monks and nuns are the answer to the Joel Osteen-ification of Christianity‚Ķ but it wouldn’t hurt.

Ross Douthat

JFK used to say the bishops and the cardinals were all Republicans, but the nuns were Democrats! I sort of believe that too.

Kitty Kelley

It’s a funny thing about being raised Catholic and then going to Catholic schools with nuns – the cliche about the mean nun was not what I had at all. They were very, very smart, devoted individuals.

Ann Dowd

A number of girls of my acquaintance went to school to the nuns of the Congregational Nunnery, or Sisters of Charity, as they are sometimes called.

Maria Monk

I got kicked out of Catholic school, by the way, because I was too feminine. I was too feminine and I had a crush on this boy named Anthony and the nuns were not having it.

Going to Catholic school was what fueled me into comedy. The nuns were so brutal so I used to try to make my friends laugh.

The designers, photographers and models I work with, they are really hard-working people who are devoting their lives to fashion. They’re kind of like nuns of fashion.

For me, I’ve always wanted to be a nun. I mean, I think about what it’s like to be a nun. And I’ve always been fascinated with nuns, and I have a nun collection, I’ve been collecting nuns for 20 years. And I have a song that I wrote, ‘I Wanna Be a Nun,’ when I was 25.

Kate Micucci

Good priests never look for awards and, perversely enough in the clerical culture universe, do not receive many. Like the aged nuns who taught selflessly and nearly anonymously all their lives, these servants of the People of God only get into the papers when their obituaries are printed.

Eugene Kennedy

I was like the family clown. The middle child entertaining. I was a lousy student, but interestingly, the nuns always let me write plays or do drawings, endless special projects.

Eileen Myles

I was a class clown; the nuns didn’t like that.

Bobby Cannavale

Hire me for the next picture. I don’t have to just play down-and-out trailer trash and mean, old, wicked, old nuns. I could play a princess or a queen. That’s all I wanted to do. Because campaigning does go on. It’s a part of selling the film.

Melissa Leo

I went to an all-girls’ Christian convent school run by nuns. It was fun, but when I was 15, I said, ‘Mum, that’s it – I need to go where there are some boys.’
