Age is not measured by years. Nature does not equally distribute energy. Some people are born old and tired while others are going strong at seventy.
Inside every older person is a younger person wondering what happened.
At twenty years of age, the will reigns; at thirty, the wit; and at forty, the judgement.
~ Benjamin Franklin
Wisdom doesn't necessarily come with age. Sometimes age just shows up all by itself.
Age is strictly a case of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.
Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest.
And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.
~ Abraham Lincoln
The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age.
A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman's birthday but never remembers her age.
Few women admit their age. Few men act theirs.
Men are like wine: some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age.
Pope John XXIII
Nature gives you the face you have at twenty, but it's up to you to merit the face you have at fifty.
The advantage of being eighty years old is that one has many people to love.
Middle age is when your age starts to show around your middle.
Life is a moderately good play with a badly written third act.
Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
Because time itself is like a spiral, something special happens on your birthday each year:
The same energy that God invested in you at birth is present once again.
Menachem Mendel Schneerson
We know we're getting old when the only thing we want for our birthday is not to be reminded of it.
There is still no cure for the common birthday.
Believing hear, what you deserve to hear:
Your birthday as my own to me is dear...
But yours gives most; for mine did only lend
Me to the world; yours gave to me a friend.
Irish dramatist, poet, author and one of the most iconic figures from
late Victorian society. For his sexuality he suffered the indignity and shame of imprisonment.
For a long time his name was synonymous with scandal and intrigue.
However with changing social attitudes he is remembered with great affection for his biting social criticism, wit and linguistic skills.
When we show our respect for other living things, they respond with respect for us.
Arapaho ~ Native American Proverbs
Hope is the physician of each misery.
~ Irish Proverbs
Everything that can be counted does not necessarily count; everything that counts cannot necessarily be counted.
~ Albert Einstein
