To teach how to live without certainty and yet without being paralysed by hesitation is perhaps the chief thing that philosophy, in our age, can do for those who study it.

Bertrand Russell

No, but way before that, I’ve been doing little dances in movies for years. Yeah, that was an amazing chance. You know, at my age to be able to do a music dance video, very unusual.

Christopher Walken

It is my art. I am better at it than I ever was. And I will do it as long as I can. When you reach a certain age you can slough off what is unnecessary and concentrate on what is. And why not?

Arthur Miller

Men of my age live in a state of continual desperation.

Vita Sackville-West

I’ve always tried to do my very best, and I want to be the very best age, whatever age I am.

Ann-Margret

Before anything else, we need a new age of Enlightenment. Our present political systems must relinquish their claims on truth, justice and freedom and have to replace them with the search for truth, justice, freedom and reason.

Friedrich Durrenmatt

It is not possible to live in this age if you don’t have a sense of many contradictory forces.

Rem Koolhaas

By all but the pathologically romantic, it is now recognized that this is not the age of the small man.

John Kenneth Galbraith

I want to sell to people my own age, because that’s the way I write songs.

John Mellencamp

Because of my age and because there’s more work on the small screen. What it’s missing in quality it makes up for in quantity. From an actor’s selfish point of view.

Cesar Romero

I basically started playing violin at the age of six. That lasted about three years because my previous teacher died and the second teacher didn’t really know how to successfully get me going.

Miroslav Vitous

I was a very sickly kid. While I was in the hospital at age 7, my Dad brought me a stack of comic books to keep me occupied. I was hooked.

Len Wein

I don’t know why people are so obsessed with age anyway. I mean, 90 is the new 70 70 is the new 50 and 50 is the new 40 so the whole act-your-age thing? Only up to a point.

Joan Collins

As a precocious teen I dreamed of being Graham Greene. Well, as it turned out, I never wrote a great novel, sadly, and I never converted to Catholicism, happily, but I did do one thing he did. That is, in middle age I moved to a seaside town and got into a right barney with the local powers-that-be.

Julie Burchill

We live in an age, in an era where there is so much negativity, there is so much violence in the world, there is so much unrest and people are at war, that I wanted to promote the word love and red signifies love.

Elton John

Credit or debit cards, for starters, are nothing short of shoppers’ Novocain. Even in the age of digital purchases and virtual money, we still attach a special value to dirty paper with pictures of presidents on it. Handing some of that to a cashier simply hurts more than handing over a little sliver of plastic.

Jeffrey Kluger

The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion or ethnic background, is that we all believe we are above-average drivers.

Dave Barry

You watch yourself age and it’s hard to feel like a sex symbol.

Idris Elba

To me, old age is always fifteen years older than I am.

Bernard Baruch

Well, Jeff Buckley for me is one of the greatest singers I’ve ever heard. And the reason why is he has an amazing range, amazing emotional power in his voice. And the music he put around it also just had this passion and this soul to it and this spirit to it that very few artists have, and he passed at a very young age.

John Legend

Everybody looks like clones and the only people you notice are my age. I don’t notice anybody unless they look great, and every now and again they do, and they are usually 70.

Vivienne Westwood

The biggest disease this day and age is that of people feeling unloved.

Princess Diana

Youth has no age.

Pablo Picasso

One of the tough things about being an actor, probably the hardest thing, is getting your foot in the door, and my father handled that for me at a very early age.

Jeff Bridges
