‘Dallas’ hit a chord back in the late Seventies and Eighties because it was the age of greed: here you have this unapologetic character who is mean and nasty and ruthless and does it all with an evil grin.

Roger Daltrey

Well, once you’ve resigned yourself to the fact that you are the more mature pop performer and you’re past the age you ever thought you would do it, you might as well do it as long as you can. As long as I can still lift a microphone, then I’ll do it, you know.

Old age comes on suddenly, and not gradually as is thought.

Writers obviously have to bear witness to the harsh face of the age.

Olivia Munn

The wonderful thing about age is that your knees don’t work as well, you can’t run down steps quite as easily and obviously you can’t lift heavy weights. But your mind doesn’t feel any different.

It’s ironic that at age 32, at probably the greatest moment of my career, with The Godfather having such an enormous success, I wasn’t even aware of it, because I was somewhere else under the deadline again.

Francis Ford Coppola

My habit would have been to veer towards the dark – to prove I was something edgy, or maybe to prove that I was cognisant of the dark side. Now, with age and confidence, I can say, yeah, that’s true, but I am cognisant of the fact that people can do things well. And can be more loving than you expect.

Robert Morgan

I shall not grow conservative with age.

Elizabeth Cady Stanton

Janice Dickinson

Youth is a blunder Manhood a struggle, Old Age a regret.

Benjamin Disraeli

It has been claimed at times that our modern age of technology facilitates dictatorship.

Betty White

I never took guitar lessons. I took classical piano lessons from the age of six when we lived in Holland. And when we moved to America, it was just the typical thing except I was really good at it so was my brother.

Ours is essentially a tragic age, so we refuse to take it tragically.

Jessica Lange

I have always felt that a woman has the right to treat the subject of her age with ambiguity until, perhaps, she passes into the realm of over ninety. Then it is better she be candid with herself and with the world.

Carl Sandburg

I love physical kinds of comedy and getting down and dirty and doing stunts. When I was growing up, I was always getting into fights with guys and usually punching out boys my age because I was a lot bigger and tougher. So I’m naturally accustomed to putting myself into the headspace of a girl who can take care of herself.

Cameron Diaz

My grandparents got married at a very young age, and a lot of what I think about marriage is based on their relationship. I watched them over the years and saw how they dealt with everything together, as a team.

Lascelles Abercrombie

It’s not always possible to sit down and eat at home in this day and age of fast-paced living, but if you are going to eat out, do so as a family and support all the great local places in your areas. I’ll still eat at the same diner I did as a kid with my parents.

Michael Symon

Kim Cattrall

My inspiration was my mom. She’s a great cook, and she still cooks, and we still banter back and forth about cooking. Growing up in a mostly Portuguese community, food was important and the family table was extremely important. At a very young age I understood that.

Parenting is an impossible job at any age.

Harrison Ford

I was confirmed at my prep school at the age of 13.

I wrote a screenplay for a ‘Sweet Valley High’ adaptation, and it’s really amazing to me how many women who are my age have responded to the idea and are excited about the movie.

Francesca Annis

I grew up on a farm in a small town where you do or say one thing and everybody knows about it. You see it happen, there’s always the town gossip – ‘Oh did you hear about so and so, or did you hear what went on in this household?’ So I learned at a very young age just to keep my mouth shut.

Garrett Hedlund

We Jews have a special attachment to the Book. The study of page after page in tomes yellowing with age was obligatory.

Theodore Bikel

IQ is a commodity, data is a commodity. I’m far more interested in watching people interact at a restaurant with their smartphone. We can all read ‘Tech Crunch,’ ‘Ad Age.’ I would rather be living in the trenches. I would rather be going to Whole Foods in Columbus Circle to watch people shop with their smartphones.

Gary Vaynerchuk

Growing up on stage, I was introduced to makeup at a young age and I will never forget the first time I tried on a L’Oreal Paris iconic lipstick – it was instant glamour and I’ve been hooked ever since.

Now is the age of anxiety.

W. H. Auden

Jason Mraz

A final word: I am not knowledgeable about the internet. I do not have a computer. I guess that at 74 years of age, I don’t have the patience to learn.

David Wilkerson

Forty is the old age of youth, fifty is the youth of old age.

Hosea Ballou

I think you can’t really escape any kind of spiritual education as a child, whether it’s New Age or Judaism or Buddhism or whatever it is. You can’t escape it, even if you completely disagree with it, you still have it as a foundation that you base things off of.

Jack White

Why should 20-year-olds only be considered sexy? I think we get better with age.

Cher

I was born at the age of twelve on an MGM lot.

Colin Firth

When I was at school, I was in choirs more than anything else, from a very young age, about 9 years old. And then I started taking drum lessons.

I avoid talking before the youth of the age as I would dancing before them: for if one’s tongue don’t move in the steps of the day, and thinks to please by its old graces, it is only an object of ridicule.

Horace Walpole

The face you have at age 25 is the face God gave you, but the face you have after 50 is the face you earned.

Jane Elliot

Age carries all things away, even the mind.

Virgil

I would often find myself, at the age of 21, at midnight, running down a dark street on my own with 10 men chasing me. And the fact they had cameras in their hands made that legal.

Sienna Miller

The idea of regretting not doing this seemed insane to me. Sitting in the corner at a bar at age 60, saying: ‘I could’ve been Bond. Buy me a drink.’ That’s the saddest place I could be. At least now at 60 I can say: ‘I was Bond. Now buy me a drink.’

Daniel Craig

I prefer younger men. In some ways, they are much more open to a woman being stronger and independent then some of the men my age.

Kim Cattrall

Alas, after a certain age every man is responsible for his face.

Albert Camus

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.

To be told that one can be dependent on one’s parents until age 26 should strike a young person who wants to grow up as demeaning, not as something to celebrate.

I am 54 and age is slowly writing itself on my face.

Arthur Smith

The funniest racism is the racism between minorities. It’s something you don’t see dramatized, but almost every minority I know who’s my age, they have these funny stories about their parents stereotyping other minorities.

Mindy Kaling

At a young age winning is not the most important thing… the important thing is to develop creative and skilled players with good confidence.

Ogden Nash

What though youth gave love and roses, Age still leaves us friends and wine.

Thomas More

To own the dominant, or only, newspaper in a mid-sized American city was, for many decades, a kind of license to print money. In the Internet age, however, no one has figured out how to rescue the newspaper in the United States or abroad.

Eric Alterman

In the 1970s and 1980s there was so little decent fiction for young people, but we’re now in a golden age that shows no sign of fading. Philip Pullman, J. K. Rowling, Lemony Snicket are only three of the best known among a good number of equals.

I got to experience soccer at the highest level at a young age I decided I wanted to be part of that for as long as possible.

Mia Hamm

I’m 20 years old. I like to party as much as anyone my age. Going clubbing is my way of relaxing or releasing a lot of stress. I don’t feel that I should have to justify that part of my life. I don’t know that I’m necessarily an addict.

Lindsay Lohan

My sister and I shared a bedroom our entire lives and I believe she discovered the Beatles when she was about 11 and I’m four years younger. So from the age of 7 until 17 we had nothing but Beatles paraphernalia in our room, even those little stuffed Beatles that went on stands that are dressed as the Sgt. Pepper band.

Philip Larkin

But the age of chivalry is gone. That of sophisters, economists, and calculators has succeeded and the glory of Europe is extinguished forever.

Confusion of goals and perfection of means seems, in my opinion, to characterize our age.

If children are not introduced to music at an early age, I believe something fundamental is actually being taken from them.

Saul Williams

Photography suits the temper of this age – of active bodies and minds. It is a perfect medium for one whose mind is teeming with ideas, imagery, for a prolific worker who would be slowed down by painting or sculpting, for one who sees quickly and acts decisively, accurately.

Edward Weston

How incessant and great are the ills with which a prolonged old age is replete.

C. S. Lewis

I began to speak well at a very advanced age – 15, 16, 17 years old. It was psychological: the trauma of war, my family and growing up on my own. I was more or less a street kid.
