Quote of the Day
Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.
I have come to regard November as the older, harder man's October. I appreciate the early darkness and cooler temperatures. It puts my mind in a different place than October. It is a month for a quieter, slightly more subdued celebration of summer's death as winter tightens its grip.
As I get older I'm more and more comfortable being alone.
You don't get older, you get better.
I spent my whole childhood wishing I were older and now I'm spending my adulthood wishing I were younger.
If you carry your childhood with you, you never become older.
Older men declare war. But it is the youth that must fight and die.
As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.
Reading and writing, like everything else, improve with practice. And, of course, if there are no young readers and writers, there will shortly be no older ones. Literacy will be dead, and democracy - which many believe goes hand in hand with it - will be dead as well.
I had a really wonderful upbringing. We were a tight family. It was wonderful to grow up with so many siblings. We were all just a year or two apart, and we were always so supportive of each other. I learned everything from my older brother and sister and taught it to my younger sisters.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
I'm kind of comfortable with getting older because it's better than the other option, which is being dead. So I'll take getting older.
As time goes by and you're getting older and stuff like that - getting older sucks. You know, I hear all this crap about, 'Oh, you can age with dignity.' Really?
The great thing about getting older is that you don't lose all the other ages you've been.
Older women are like aging strudels - the crust may not be so lovely, but the filling has come at last into its own.
Robert Farrar Capon
Older and wiser voices can help you find the right path, if you are only willing to listen.
Getting older is no problem. You just have to live long enough.
Teenagers only have to focus on themselves - its not until we get older that we realize that other people exist.
Every job I take, within minutes I'm thinking, 'I can't do this.' I think it's what makes me work. People think I just swagger in and do it. But I doubt myself all the time. It's what pushes me, what makes me work harder. The older I get, the less I take for granted.
I don't know if I've ever been in a clique. The older I've gotten, the more I've realized what a true friend really is. So my friendship circle has changed a bit.
I maybe had a first love and had my heart broken, but reflecting on it, I don't think that was love. I think as I'm getting older and having more in-depth relationships, maybe I'll experience it. At the moment, I don't know, exactly, if I've been in love.
As you grow older, you learn a few things. One of them is to actually take the time you've allotted for vacation.
Most of the time, if I'm in a pickle, I'll call one of my brothers. They've usually got somewhat uplifting advice. One is six and a half years older and one is eight years older, so they've probably lived through whatever my problem is.
I think the older I get the more creative I get, I don't have the distractions that I had when I was younger.
When you're growing up, you play dress-up - it's a game, it's a pastime. And then as you get older, getting ready and looking nice becomes this constant stress. I want to make it fun again.
