You're an old-timer if you can remember when setting the world on fire was a figure of speech.
It is kind of strange watching your personal history become costume.
Age to me means nothing. I can't get old; I'm working. I was old when I was twenty-one and out of work. As long as you're working, you stay young. When I'm in front of an audience, all that love and vitality sweeps over me and I forget my age.
I was always taught to respect my elders and I've now reached the age when I don't have anybody to respect.
It is a mistake to regard age as a downhill grade toward dissolution. The reverse is true. As one grows older, one climbs with surprising strides.
The year hastens to its close. What is it to me? That I am twenty-five or fifty-eight is as nothing. Should I mourn that the spring flowers are gone, that the summer fruit has ripened, that the harvest is reaped, that the snow has fallen?
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
Boys will be boys, and so will a lot of middle-aged men.
A woman telling her true age is like a buyer confiding his final price to an Armenian rug dealer.
There is only one cure for gray hair. It was invented by a Frenchman. It is called the guillotine.
—P. G. Wodehouse
Age is not important unless you're a cheese.
Age is not a particularly interesting subject. Anyone can get old. All you have to do is live long enough.
The older you get the stronger the wind gets - and it's always in your face.
If youth knew; if age could.
What I know at sixty I knew at twenty. Forty years of superfluous verification.
I don't know how I got to be thirty. I don't feel thirty, the way I felt so definitely nine, and thirteen, and twenty-one.
—Rachel Khong in Vitamin
