Age quotes
Age
The sole advantage of power is that you can do more good.

- Baltasar Gracian
Each of us has the right and the responsibility to asses the road which lie ahead and those over which we have traveled, and if the feature road looms ominous or unpromising, and the road back uninviting-inviting, then we need to gather our resolve and carrying only the necessary baggage, step off that road into another direction. If the new choice is also unpalatable, without embarrassment, we must be ready to change that one as well.

- Angelou, Maya
The lack of emotional security of our American young people is due, I believe, to their isolation from the larger family unit. No two people - no mere father and mother - as I have often said, are enough to provide emotional security for a child. He needs to feel himself one in a world of kinfolk, persons of variety in age and temperament, and yet allied to himself by an indissoluble bond which he cannot break if he could, for nature has welded him into it before he was born.

- Pearl S. Buck
The most essential factor is persistence -- the determination never to allow your energy or enthusiasm to be dampened by the discouragement that must inevitably come.

- Riley, James Whitcomb
We seem but to linger in manhood to tell the dreams of our childhood, and they vanish out of memory ere we learn the language.

- Thoreau, Henry David
Where there is marriage without love, there will be love without marriage.

- Franklin, Benjamin
Television's perfect. You turn a few knobs, a few of those mechanical adjustments at which the higher apes are so proficient, and lean back and drain your mind of all thought. And there you are watching the bubbles in the primeval ooze. You don't have to concentrate. You don't have to react. You don't have to remember. You don't miss your brain because you don't need it. Your heart and liver and lungs continue to function normally. Apart from that, all is peace and quiet. You are in the man's nirvana. And if some poor nasty minded person comes along and says you look like a fly on a can of garbage, pay him no mind. He probably hasn't got the price of a television set.

- Raymond Chandler
After all, the world is not a stage -- not to me: nor a theatre: nor a show-house of any sort. And art, especially novels, are not little theatres where the reader sits aloft and watches... and sighs, commiserates, condones and smiles. That's what you want a book to be: because it leaves you so safe and superior, with your two-dollar ticket to the show. And that's what my books are not and never will be. Whoever reads me will be in the thick of the scrimmage, and if he doesn't like it -- if he wants a safe seat in the audience -- let him read someone else.

- Lawrence, D. H.
I am definitely going to take a course on time management... just as soon as I can work it into my schedule.

- Boone, Louis E.
There is in every child a painstaking teacher, so skilful that he obtains identical results in all children in all parts of the world. The only language men ever speak perfectly is the one they learn in babyhood, when no one can teach them anything!

- Montessori, Maria
Never say that marriage has more of joy than pain.

- Euripides
Republicans study the financial pages of the newspaper. Democrats put them in the bottom of the bird cage.

- Stanton, Will
So if it seems that some of what I'll have to say in the pages to come doesn't reflect the mellowing of age, that's only because I've never found that life and memories respond to time the way that tobacco does.

- Caleb Carr
The illusion that times that were are better than those that are, has probably pervaded all ages.

- Horace Greeley
There are pauses amidst study, and even pauses of seeming idleness, in which a process goes on which may be likened to the digestion of food. In those seasons of repose, the powers are gathering their strength for new efforts; as land which lies fallow recovers itself for tillage.

- J. W. Alexander
But screw your courage to the sticking-place, and we'll not fail.

- William Shakespeare
Courage is of no value unless accompanied by justice; yet if all men became just, there would be no need for courage.

- Agesilaus the Second
RIBALDRY, n. Censorious language by another concerning oneself.

- Ambrose Bierce
If youth knew; if age could.

- Estienne, Henri
The great difficulty is first to win a reputation; the next to keep it while you live; and the next to preserve it after you die, when affection and interest are over, and nothing but sterling excellence can preserve your name. Never suffer youth to be an excuse for inadequacy, nor age and fame to be an excuse for indolence.

- Haydon, Benjamin
