A comfortable old age is the reward of a well-spent youth. Instead of its bringing sad and melancholy prospects of decay, it would give us hopes of eternal youth in a better world.
Maurice Chevalier
A man of eighty has outlived probably three new schools of painting, two of architecture and poetry and a hundred in dress.
Lord Byron
A test of a people is how it behaves toward the old. It is easy to love children. Even tyrants and dictators make a point of being fond of children. But the affection and care for the old, the incurable, the helpless are the true gold mines of a culture.
Abraham J. Heschel
An old man is twice a child.
William Shakespeare
Education is the best provision for old age.
Aristotle
Every time I think that I'm getting old, and gradually going to the grave, something else happens.
Elvis Presley
He who would pass his declining years with honor and comfort, should, when young, consider that he may one day become old, and remember when he is old, that he has once been young.
Joseph Addison
It (The New York Times) reads like it was edited by two elderly sociologists, one of whom has been dead for many years
Garrison Keillor
Men do not quit playing because they grow old; they grow old because they quit playing.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
Not everyone grows to be old, but everyone has been younger than he is now.
Evelyn Waugh
Obscenity is whatever happens to shock some elderly and ignorant magistrate.
Bertrand Russell
Old age is a shipwreck.
Charles de Gaulle
Old age is a special problem for me because I've never been able to shed the mental image I have of myself-a lad of about 19
E. B. White
Old age is no place for sissies.
Bette Davis
Old age, believe me, is a good and pleasant thing. It is true you are gently shouldered off the stage, but then you are given such a comfortable front stall as spectator.
Confucius
Old men are dangerous it doesn't matter to them what is going to happen to the world
George Bernard Shaw
Old men are fond of giving advice to console themselves for being no longer in a position to give bad examples
François de la Rochefoucauld
Old places and old persons in their turn, when spirit dwells in them, have an intrinsic vitality of which youth is incapable, precisely, the balance and wisdom that come from long perspectives and broad foundations
George Santayana
People grow old only by deserting their ideals, Macarthur had written. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up interest wrinkles the soul. You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope as old as your despair. In the central place of every heart there is a recording chamber. So long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer and courage, so long are you young. When your heart is covered with the snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism, then, and then only, are you grown old. And then, indeed as the ballad says, you just fade away.
Douglas MacArthur
Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee
Bible
