When you long for blessings that you may not name, and when you grieve knowing not the cause, then indeed you are growing with all things that grow, and rising toward your greater self.
When you reach my age, you realize you couldn't have done things very much better or much worse than you did them in the first place.
Jorge Luis Borges
A majority of young people seem to develop mental arteriosclerosis forty years before they get the physical kind. Another question: why do some people remain open and elastic into extreme old age, whereas others become rigid and unproductive before they're fifty?
Youth is a folly; maturity, a struggle; old age a remorse.
Youth and age will never agree.
Young people don't know what age is, and old people forget what youth was.
While young, it's all dreams; when old, all memories.
Where old age is evil, youth can learn no good.
When young, it's all dreams; when old, all memories.
