Old People Quotes
When I was young, I despised old people. I was provincial and narrow-minded. It's the reason I stayed stupid so long. If you only get involved with young people you don't learn anything about the world.
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.
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.
I think it would be interesting if old people got anti-Alzheimer's disease where they slowly began to recover other people's lost memories.
When old people speak it is not because of the sweetness of words in our mouths; it is because we see something which you do not see.
You know you must be doing something right if old people like you.
Both young children and old people have a lot of time on their hands. That's probably why they get along so well.
Develop your eccentricities while you are young. That way, when you get old, people won't think you're going gaga.
There's one more terrifying fact about old people: I'm going to be one soon.
P. J. O'Rourke
Medicines are only fit for old people.
I mean, that's another big surprise of the show, is that I see sixteen year old people who recognize me and they're honest, for-real fans of the show. And it goes down to nine months. I mean, I've heard of nine month to year-old children who are watching the show.
I hate old people, I hate children. I think any celebrity that adopts a child from a third world country is a fool.
Travel is one of the best anti-war weapons that there are. I've been to Iran, and if you're there you see little kids, cops, old people, cemeteries. Once you see that, you can't say, 'Oh, Iran, let's bomb them.'
You either evolve or you don't. I don't like old people on a rock n' roll stage. I think they look pathetic, me included. And the fact that I represent an era means I can't just go out there and do all new stuff. They would all say, 'Sing 'White Rabbit,' and I'd say no? That's rude.
Don't hustle old people.
Television is the same as the telephone, and the same as the World Wide Web for that matter. People who become obsessed by the peculiarities of these communications media have simply failed to adjust to the shock of the old. People who bleat on about the 'artistic' potential of television qua television are equally deluded.
I think retirement's for old people. I'm still in the business, thank you. I have a young child of nine years old, and I want to live as long as I can to see him grow up. I'm enjoying my life and I want to stick around for as long as I can.
Racism been over. It's the old people that keep on holding on to it.

Our society must make it right and possible for old people not to fear the young or be deserted by them, for the test of a civilization is the way that it cares for its helpless members.
Pearl S. Buck
I don't care about age very much. I think back to the old people I knew when I was growing up, and they always seemed larger than life.
It's human nature to be curious about people, and to be more curious about young people than old people. We want to cheer something on at the same time we want to tear it down. That's just so normal.
When we looked at the life cycle in our 40s, we looked to old people for wisdom. At 80, though, we look at other 80-year-olds to see who got wise and who not. Lots of old people don't get wise, but you don't get wise unless you age.
Crazy old people are our entire source of polling information.
P. J. O'Rourke
I never weigh myself, but the brutal truth of television is that they don't employ old people or fat people.
Martin Luther King, Jr.

You are always new, the last of your kisses was ever the sweetest.
