To keep the heart unwrinkled, to be hopeful, kindly, cheerful, reverent that is to triumph over old age.
Amos Bronson Alcott
Old age is the most unexpected of all the things that can happen to a man.
Old age is like a plane flying through a storm. Once you're aboard, there's nothing you can do.
Old age is a shipwreck.
Charles de Gaulle
I don't want to fight aging; I want to take good care of myself, but plastic surgery and all that? I'm not interested.
Old age is an excellent time for outrage. My goal is to say or do at least one outrageous thing every week.
As long as any adult thinks that he, like the parents and teachers of old, can become introspective, invoking his own youth to understand the youth before him, he is lost.
We've put more effort into helping folks reach old age than into helping them enjoy it.
Frank Howard Clark
We should so provide for old age that it may have no urgent wants of this world to absorb it from meditation on the next. It is awful to see the lean hands of dotage making a coffer of the grave.
Pearl S. Buck
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!
There is always some specific moment when we become aware that our youth is gone; but, years after, we know it was much later.
Middle age is the time when a man is always thinking that in a week or two he will feel as good as ever.
Youth is when you're allowed to stay up late on New Year's Eve. Middle age is when you're forced to.
To resist the frigidity of old age, one must combine the body, the mind, and the heart. And to keep these in parallel vigor one must exercise, study, and love.
I'm not afraid of aging.
The denunciation of the young is a necessary part of the hygiene of older people, and greatly assists the circulation of the blood.
Logan P. Smith
Preparation for old age should begin not later than one's teens. A life which is empty of purpose until 65 will not suddenly become filled on retirement.
Dwight L. Moody
The aging process has you firmly in its grasp if you never get the urge to throw a snowball.
The real sadness of fifty is not that you change so much but that you change so little.
You end up as you deserve. In old age you must put up with the face, the friends, the health, and the children you have earned.
