It is not how old you are, but how you are old.
What most persons consider as virtue, after the age of 40 is simply a loss of energy.
Old age comes on suddenly, and not gradually as is thought.
A man knows when he is growing old because he begins to look like his father.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez
We were never supposed to live until 40. We were built to self-destruct at 30, whether from cancer or mental illness. We're all going way beyond our expiration date.
Old age is like a plane flying through a storm. Once you're aboard, there's nothing you can do.
True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country.
You are as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fears; as young as your hope, as old as your despair.
Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.
Middle age is when you're sitting at home on a Saturday night and the telephone rings and you hope it isn't for you.
I don't believe one grows older. I think that what happens early on in life is that at a certain age one stands still and stagnates.
T. S. Eliot
If you haven't turned rebel by twenty you've got no heart; if you haven't turned establishment by thirty you've got no brains!
Men are like wine - some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age.
Pope John XXIII
I think your whole life shows in your face and you should be proud of that.
When grace is joined with wrinkles, it is adorable. There is an unspeakable dawn in happy old age.
I think women should start to embrace their age. What's the alternative to getting older? You die. I can't change the day I was born. But I can take care of my skin, my body, my mind, and try to live my life and be happy.
Thirty was so strange for me. I've really had to come to terms with the fact that I am now a walking and talking adult.
C. S. Lewis
Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty.
I'm not interested in age. People who tell me their age are silly. You're as old as you feel.
Henri Frederic Amiel
I'm happy to report that my inner child is still ageless.
To keep the heart unwrinkled, to be hopeful, kindly, cheerful, reverent - that is to triumph over old age.
Thomas Bailey Aldrich
Adults are obsolete children.
In youth the days are short and the years are long. In old age the years are short and day's long.
Pope Paul VI
A man growing old becomes a child again.
The great secret that all old people share is that you really haven't changed in seventy or eighty years. Your body changes, but you don't change at all. And that, of course, causes great confusion.
Forty is the old age of youth, fifty is the youth of old age.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
