Holly Madison

We have become a society that can’t self-correct, that can’t address its obvious problems, that can’t pull out of its nosedive.

At my age flowers scare me.

One already feels like an anachronism, writing novels in the age of what-ever-this-is-the-age-of, but touring to promote them feels doubly anachronistic. The marketplace is showing an increasing intolerance for the time-honored practice of printing information on paper and shipping it around the country.

Lev Grossman

I basically get stereotyped a lot in terms of being a girl and writing ‘chick’ music for teenage girls or something. I think, if anything, the press kind of, because of my gender and my age, tends to kind of relegate my work to this sort of special-interest group. It’s part of the cultural dynamic, I guess.

Ani DiFranco

The golden age is before us, not behind us.

The networks just wouldn’t spend the money today.

Carol Burnett

We have entered an age in which education is not just a luxury permitting some men an advantage over others. It has become a necessity without which a person is defenseless in this complex, industrialized society. We have truly entered the century of the educated man.

Lyndon B. Johnson

Junior Seau

You hit a certain age and – especially because of TV – the young cooks coming up say, ‘You’re a sellout, because you’re doing something other than what you should be doing.’ ‘Top Chef’ is a double-edged sword for me: There’s a whole group of people who will not come to the restaurants because they assume I’m not in them anymore, all I do is TV.

Tom Colicchio

It’s getting better generally, daily, especially in TV, for women in acting and age and looks count less. As more women come into the business. Change of any sort takes a long time to happen.

Craig Ferguson

The value of old age depends upon the person who reaches it. To some men of early performance it is useless. To others, who are late to develop, it just enables them to finish the job.

There is no age, height, or weight requirement to skate. It is good exercise no matter what your age is. If you want to be competitive, most start young. But, I practice with many adult competitors.

Lois Wyse

I think all writers of my age who are brought up on films probably by the age of 16 have seen many more films than they have read classics of literature. We can’t help but be influenced by film. Film has got some great tricks that it’s taught writers.

Robertson Davies

Michelle Pfeiffer hasn’t been finding a lot of work recently because she doesn’t like what a woman her age is offered. That’s a real double standard. You get Sean Connery, who gets older and older, still playing opposite young ladies, but it doesn’t work the other way around.

I felt a tremendous sadness for men who can’t deal with a woman of their own age.

Michael Caine

The surest sign of age is loneliness.

Annie Dillard

It’s hard for women at my age in Hollywood, but I’m not discouraged.

Jane Fonda

I can’t look in the mirror and look at fake things. I just can’t. I’d rather age.

Heidi Klum

And I’m afraid, in this day and age, trust, which I count so, you know, I love loyalty. I love trust.

Elton John

Age, like distance lends a double charm.

Oliver Herford

I feel like a lot of the female relationships I see on TV or in movies are in some way free of the kind of jealousy and anxiety and posturing that has been such a huge part of my female friendships, which I hope lessens a little bit with age.

Lena Dunham

There is no self-knowledge but an historical one. No one knows what he himself is who does not know his fellow men, especially the most prominent one of the community, the master’s master, the genius of the age.

Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel

Having come to live in this age is as though one were to have entered another country. Learn its language or risk being left out.

Theodore Bikel

I love things that age well – things that don’t date, that stand the test of time and that become living examples of the absolute best.

Giorgio Armani

I am firmly of the opinion that women who make a lot of effort to hang onto their looks in middle age (unless they are beauties, entertainers or prostitutes) are rather sad, as one should surely have something more substantial to recommend one by this time, such as kindness or cleverness.

Julie Burchill

Age merely shows what children we remain.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

The chief role of the universities is to prolong adolescence into middle age, at which point early retirement ensures that we lack the means or the will to enforce significant change.

J. G. Ballard

There are signs that the age of petroleum has passed its zenith. Adjusted for inflation, a barrel of crude oil now sells for three times its long-run average. The large western oil companies, which cartellised the industry for much of the 20th century, are now selling more oil than they find, and are thus in the throes of liquidation.

James Buchan

Music has always been my protection against the world, from a very young age. I feel safe inside of a jam.

Trey Anastasio

We are the children of a technological age. We have found streamlined ways of doing much of our routine work. Printing is no longer the only way of reproducing books. Reading them, however, has not changed.

Lawrence Clark Powell

Death comes not to the living soul, nor age to the loving heart.

Phoebe Cary

The trick is growing up without growing old.

Casey Stengel

I am, as I’ve said, merely competent. But in an age of incompetence, that makes me extraordinary.

Billy Joel

At the age of 11 I was about 6 ft. tall and my voice had completely broken. That caused problems. I was this gangly, spotty, very unattractive kid. I wasn’t cool and I wasn’t a nerd. I didn’t even want to fit in with anyone.

Dan Stevens

If there is anything I would do differently in my life, it is that I would study business more. I’m trying to teach my daughter Chloe at an early age about investing and money so she’s not afraid of it.

Donna Mills

I started in the restaurant business at the age of 19 as a waitress. I loved the atmosphere and the camaraderie of the restaurant business. I loved not having to go to an office. I loved making people happy.

Anne Burrell

I believe we should encourage children to sing and play instruments from an early age.

We are in an electronic technology age now and it’s about time we put away the old stuff.

Monica Edwards

As men get older, the toys get more expensive.

Marvin Davis

Some of your teachers are actually closer in age to you than you think.

I don’t know whether it’s age or maturity, but I certainly find myself committed more and more to the looser forms of Western democracy at any price.

John le Carre

If you’re extremely, painfully frightened of age, it shows.

Jeanne Moreau

It doesn’t matter what color, sex, religion, age, sexual orientation, etc., everyone should have the same freedoms and liberties.

Lance Bass

Why should society feel responsible only for the education of children, and not for the education of all adults of every age?

Erich Fromm

It is possible that mankind is on the threshold of a golden age but, if so, it will be necessary first to slay the dragon that guards the door, and this dragon is religion.

Bertrand Russell
