Age quotes

We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot.

- Eleanor Roosevelt

Marriage is based on the theory that when man discovers a brand of beer exactly to his taste he should at once throw up his job and go work in the brewery.

- George Jean Nathan

Sarcasm I now see to be, in general, the language of the devil; for which reason I have long since as good as renounced it.

- Carlyle, Thomas

Nothing is harder to direct than a man in prosperity; nothing more easily managed than one is adversity.

- Plutarch

The average, healthy, well-adjusted adult gets up at seven-thirty in the morning feeling just plain terrible.

- Jean Kerr

Dude, marriage is the'get out of loneliness free'card in the Monopoly game of life.

- Veronica Pare and Ferrett Steinmetz

A truer image of the world, I think, is obtained by picturing things as entering into the stream of time from an eternal world outside, than from a view which regards time as the devouring tyrant of all that is.

- Russell, Bertrand

I dont care who the audience is looking at just as long as they're looking at the stage.

- Reba McEntire

People are always shouting they want to create a better future. It's not true. The future is an apathetic void of no interest to anyone. The past is full of life, eager to irritate us, provoke and insult us, tempt us to destroy or repaint it. The only reason people want to be masters of the future is to change the past.

- Kundera, Milan

Money speaks sense in a language all nations understand.

- Behn, Aphra

Not till the fire is dying in the grate, Look we for any kinship with the stars. Oh, wisdom never comes when it is gold, And the great price we paid for it full worth: We have it only when we are half earth. Little avails that coinage to the old!

- Meredith, George

Though the Jazz Age continued it became less and less an affair of youth. The sequel was like a children's party taken over by the elders.


Man is not the creature of circumstances, circumstances are the creatures of men. We are free agents, and man is more powerful than matter.

- Benjamin Disraeli

Once I planned to write a book of poems entirely about the things in my pocket. But I found it would be too long; and the age of the great epics is past.

- Chesterton, Gilbert K.

Knowledge is a comfortable and necessary retreat and shelter for us in advanced age, and if we do not plant it while young, it will give us no shade when we grow old.

- Phillip Chesterfield

If water derives lucidity from stillness, how much more the faculties of the mind! The mind of the sage, being in repose, becomes the mirror of the universe, the speculum of all creation.

- Chuang Tzu

The excess of our youth are checks written against our age and they are payable with interest thirty years later.

- Colton, Charles Caleb

Every women needs at least 4 animals. A mink in her closet, a jaguar in her garage, a tiger in her bed, and a jackass that pays for everything.

- Paris Hilton

I have no concern with any economic criticisms of the communist system; I cannot inquire into whether the abolition of private property is expedient or advantageous. But I am able to recognize that the psychological premisses on which the system is based are an untenable illusion. In abolishing private property we deprive the human love of aggression of one of its instruments... but we have in no way altered the differences in power and influence which are misused by aggressiveness.

- Freud, Sigmund

There is no human reason why a child should not admire and emulate his teacher's ability to do sums, rather than the village bum's ability to whittle sticks and smoke cigarettes. The reason why the child does not is plain enough - the bum has put himself on an equality with him and the teacher has not.

- Floyd Dell
