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.
You are as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fears; as young as your hope, as old as your despair.
The secret of genius is to carry the spirit of the child into old age, which mean never losing your enthusiasm.

Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
We should all start to live before we get too old.
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.
But more wonderful than the lore of old men and the lore of books is the secret lore of ocean.
H. P. Lovecraft
Death means change our clothes. Clothes become old, then time to come change. So this body become old, and then time come, take young body.

Going to a restaurant is one of my keenest pleasures. Meeting someplace with old and new friends, ordering wine, eating food, surrounded by strangers, I think is the core of what it means to live a civilised life.
Vampires are so old that they don't need to impress anyone anymore. They're comfortable in their own skin. It's this enigmatic strength that's very romantic and old-fashioned. I think it goes back to something of a Victorian attitude of finding a strong man who's going to look after his woman.
Being young isn't about age, it's about being a free spirit. You can meet someone of 20 who's boring and old, or you can meet someone of 70 who's youthful and exciting. I met Fred Astaire when he was 72 and I was 21, and I fell in love with him. He certainly was a free spirit.
When I was 12 years old, I read 'Nancy Drew' mysteries and biographies of Madame Curie and Florence Nightingale and books about girls who love horses or go to nursing school.

I was living as a young single mom. I was 19 when I was divorced, and my daughter was a year old, and I waited tables here three to four nights a week for several years while I was trying to support myself and my daughter and the day I got that acceptance at Harvard Law School was an unforgettable day.

I have eclectic taste, and I love vintage style mixed with glamour and old world charm.
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.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
