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
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.
Let us never know what old age is. Let us know the happiness time brings, not count the years.
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.
To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science.
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.
You're never too old, too wacky, too wild, to pick up a book and read to a child.
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.
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.
We must restore hope to young people, help the old, be open to the future, spread love. Be poor among the poor. We need to include the excluded and preach peace.
How old would you be if you didn't know how old you are?
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.
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 difficulty lies not so much in developing new ideas as in escaping from old ones.
John Maynard Keynes
Remember that the most valuable antiques are dear old friends.
H. Jackson Brown, Jr.
I don't think people change. I think they definitely mature. But I think the essence of what I am today is the same as when I was five years old. It's just maturity. I've become a healthier, fuller expression of that essence.
Make new friends, but keep the old; Those are silver, these are gold.
The old believe everything, the middle-aged suspect everything, the young know everything.
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.
You know, I looked at my face in the mirror this morning, and I like being old. My face has more content and when I train in the gym now, I am not training to be strong or handsome - just better than I was yesterday. These days the race is just against myself.
Jean-Claude Van Damme
You can't help getting older, but you don't have to get old.
It's fine to have social media that connects us with old friends, but we need tools that help us discover new people as well.
All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost; the old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost.
J. R. R. Tolkien
Martin Luther King, Jr.
