Quote of the Day
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
C. S. Lewis
It is one of the blessings of old friends that you can afford to be stupid with them.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Let us never know what old age is. Let us know the happiness time brings, not count the years.
A birthday is just another day where you go to work and people give you love. Age is just a state of mind, and you are as old as you think you are. You have to count your blessings and be happy.
Old friends pass away, new friends appear. It is just like the days. An old day passes, a new day arrives. The important thing is to make it meaningful: a meaningful friend - or a meaningful day.
No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new.
When I was young I thought that money was the most important thing in life; now that I am old I know that it is.
How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?
Do what you love to do and give it your very best. Whether it's business or baseball, or the theater, or any field. If you don't love what you're doing and you can't give it your best, get out of it. Life is too short. You'll be an old man before you know it.
The old believe everything, the middle-aged suspect everything, the young know everything.
Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?
Mary Manin Morrissey
To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.
When marrying, ask yourself this question: Do you believe that you will be able to converse well with this person into your old age? Everything else in marriage is transitory.
To a father growing old nothing is dearer than a daughter.
Remember that the most valuable antiques are dear old friends.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
Marriage is almost as old as dirt, and it was defined in the garden between Adam and Eve. One man, one woman for life till death do you part. So I would never attempt to try to redefine marriage. And I don't think anyone else should either. So do I support the idea of gay marriage? No, I don't.
I never feel lonely if I've got a book - they're like old friends. Even if you're not reading them over and over again, you know they are there. And they're part of your history. They sort of tell a story about your journey through life.
You know you're getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.
I'm grateful to intelligent people. That doesn't mean educated. That doesn't mean intellectual. I mean really intelligent. What black old people used to call 'mother wit' means intelligence that you had in your mother's womb. That's what you rely on. You know what's right to do.
Age appears to be best in four things; old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.
Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.
Make new friends, but keep the old; Those are silver, these are gold.
You can't help getting older, but you don't have to get old.
I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It's just that the translations have gone wrong.
The difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones.
John Maynard Keynes
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
