Jonathan Sacks

Beauty is only temporary, but your mind lasts you a lifetime.

Alicia Machado

Pay attention to the beauty surrounding you.

Proportions are what makes the old Greek temples classic in their beauty. They are like huge blocks, from which the air has been literally hewn out between the columns.

Arne Jacobsen

My mother always called me an ugly weed, so I never was aware of anything until I was older. Plain girls should have someone telling them they are beautiful. Sometimes this works miracles.

Hedy Lamarr

Death is the mother of Beauty hence from her, alone, shall come fulfillment to our dreams and our desires.

Wallace Stevens

But, when the work was finished, the Craftsman kept wishing that there were someone to ponder the plan of so great a work, to love its beauty, and to wonder at its vastness.

Akhenaton

Education is the best friend. An educated person is respected everywhere. Education beats the beauty and the youth.

Chanakya

250 Famous Age Quotes and Age Sayings Collection [Part 1]

I came back to work when my children were two months old. At that early age, they seem to have little awareness of anybody but their Raggedy Ann dolls, so it wasn’t a matter of them missing me. I was missing them.

Jane Pauley

At a young age, I was interested in comic books, which was really how I learnt to read. The name Cage came from a comic book character called Power Man.

Elizabeth Wurtzel

I’m asked all the time in interviews about who I am, and I know a few people my age who have a strong sense of self, but I couldn’t say I know myself and sum it up and give it to you in a little package. I don’t know myself at all yet.

Kristen Stewart

We can no longer waste time and money. Every day, more than 2,000 girls in America, age 15-19, give birth – in the wealthiest, most educated nation in the world! Neither you nor I should accept this statistic.

Jane Fonda

You should not consider a man’s age but his acts.

Sophocles

I hope to find the roles that are age appropriate but not yearning to be younger, or parenting ad nauseam.

Debra Winger

And in my own life, in my own small way, I’ve tried to give back to this country that has given me so much. That’s why I left a job at a law firm for a career in public service, working to empower young people to volunteer in their communities. Because I believe that each of us – no matter what our age or background or walk of life – each of us has something to contribute to the life of this nation.

Michelle Obama

At a certain age it just became apparent to me that this was probably the work that I would have to do.

Richard M. Nixon

You need some insecurity if you’re an actor. It keeps the pot boiling. I haven’t yet started to think about retiring. I was shocked when I heard about Paul Newman retiring at age 82. Most actors just fade away like old soldiers.

Al Pacino

Here comes 40. I’m feeling my age and I’ve ordered the Ferrari. I’m going to get the whole mid-life crisis package.

Keanu Reeves

No lying knight or lying priest ever prospered in any age, but especially not in the dark ones. Men prospered then only in following an openly declared purpose, and preaching candidly beloved and trusted creeds.

To separate children from others of similar age and qualifications solely because of their race generates a feeling of inferiority as to their status in the community that may affect their hearts and minds in a way unlikely ever to be undone.

Jane Pauley

Most poetry in the modern age has retreated to the private sphere, turning its back on the political realm.

Willard Scott

Men are like wine – some turn to vinegar, but the best improve with age.

Pope John XXIII

Youth cannot know how age thinks and feels. But old men are guilty if they forget what it was to be young.

J. K. Rowling

Confidence is something you’re born with. I know I had loads of it even at the age of 15.

Hedy Lamarr

I love my kids, and the moments I have with them, and it’s kind of weird, it’s such an age old cliche, but the way that my sons, the way they make me feel when I look at them, the way they say things, no one else would probably react to them, but it’s a special thing for me.

Michael Rapaport

There is an anti-aging possibility, but it has to come from within.

Soren Kierkegaard

I’m at the age where food has taken the place of sex in my life. In fact, I’ve just had a mirror put over my kitchen table.

Barbara de Angelis

The lovely thing about being forty is that you can appreciate twenty-five-year-old men more.

Colleen McCullough

But I think it’s a little different in Europe, because 40 is really the best age for a woman. That’s when we hit our peak and become this ripe fruit.

Juliette Binoche

Just as we reject racism, sexism, ageism, and heterosexism, we reject speciesism. The species of a sentient being is no more reason to deny the protection of this basic right than race, sex, age, or sexual orientation is a reason to deny membership in the human moral community to other humans.

Gary L. Francione

As the age of television progresses the Reagans will be the rule, not the exception. To be perfect for television is all a President has to be these days.

Gore Vidal

From an early age I didn’t buy into the value systems of working hard in a nine-to-five job. I thought creativity, friendship and loyalty and pushing the boundaries of what was acceptable was much more interesting.

A woman my age is not supposed to be attractive or sexually appealing. I just get kinda tired of that.

Annie Lennox

Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen.

Leighton Meester

I think I don’t regret a single ‘excess’ of my responsive youth – I only regret, in my chilled age, certain occasions and possibilities I didn’t embrace.

Lillie Langtry

William Hazlitt

Age is only a number, a cipher for the records. A man can’t retire his experience. He must use it. Experience achieves more with less energy and time.

Jodi Picoult

I saw how many people were poor and how many kids my age went to school hungry in the morning, which I don’t think most of my contemporaries in racially segregated schools in the South thought very much about at the time.

Charles Kuralt

The age in which we live, this non-stop distraction, is making it more impossible for the young generation to ever have the curiosity or discipline… because you need to be alone to find out anything.

Vivienne Westwood

The kids are old enough now – I just want to let them be kids. I don’t want to comment on them too much. They’re at an age where I just want to let them be kids.

Eminem

As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world – that is the myth of the atomic age – as in being able to remake ourselves.

Mahatma Gandhi

Brain power improves by brain use, just as our bodily strength grows with exercise. And there is no doubt that a large proportion of the female population, from school days to late middle age, now have very complicated lives indeed.

A. N. Wilson

I’m 36 and if I met a woman of my own age and married her, I’d also be marrying her former life, her past. It might be OK for some people – I don’t want to judge it or anything – but it’s not for me. It would destroy my creativity.

Henry Rollins

I do think I feel it but you don’t think you are cause at a certain time you are no age but you don’t think you are anything. You feel the life you have lived. I feel that. It’s been a long fifty years.

Bob Geldof

I can feel the 60S looming. In my profession, I’ve just moved along with my age. By thinking in decades, rather than whether someone’s 42 or 47, you can give yourself a whole 10 years to turn yourself around in.

Francesca Annis

Maybe I’ll be a feminist in my old age.

Bjork

One problem with age is that patience begins to ebb.

Middle Age is that perplexing time of life when we hear two voices calling us, one saying, ‘Why not?’ and the other, ‘Why bother?’

Sydney J. Harris

There are a lot of downsides to being male. We age faster and die younger. But give us this: we’re lifetime baby-making machines. Women’s reproductive abilities start to wane when they’re as young as 35. Men? We’re good to go pretty much till we’re dead.

Jeffrey Kluger

Age is a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it don’t matter.

Rowan D. Williams

One crowded hour of glorious life is worth an age without a name.

‘Bombing Afghanistan back into the Stone Age’ was quite a favourite headline for some wobbly liberals. The slogan does all the work. But an instant’s thought shows that Afghanistan is being, if anything, bombed out of the Stone Age.

Christopher Hitchens

You can have a spiritual awakening and discover a new side of you at any age. And best of all, love can happen at any age. Life can just start to get exciting when you’re in your 40s and 50s. You have to believe that.

Salma Hayek

A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman’s birthday but never remembers her age.

Robert Frost

Try to keep your soul young and quivering right up to old age.

George Sand

There’s no way to approach anything in an objective way. We’re completely subjective our view of the world is completely controlled by who we are as human beings, as men or women, by our age, our history, our profession, by the state of the world.

Charlie Kaufman

I think the biggest disease the world suffers from in this day and age is the disease of people feeling unloved. I know that I can give love for a minute, for half an hour, for a day, for a month, but I can give. I am very happy to do that, I want to do that.

Princess Diana

It begins and ends with money. It’s absurd in this day and age when we need so much money for education, health, for people, that a $100 million dollars can be spent on a film. It’s obscene.

Kathleen Turner

To keep the heart unwrinkled, to be hopeful, kindly, cheerful, reverent – that is to triumph over old age.

When superstition is allowed to perform the task of old age in dulling the human temperament, we can say goodbye to all excellence in poetry, in painting, and in music.

Look, demanding somebody do anything in this day and age is not going to fly.

John Mayer

I will never be an old man. To me, old age is always 15 years older than I am.

Francis Bacon

Craziest thing I’ve done for love is getting married. I think it’s crazy. I think it’s crazy, crazy, crazy. I’m never going to say I wouldn’t do it again but I have to make sure it’s love and not settling for the ‘I have to do this by a certain age,’ which is kind of what I did.

Jenny McCarthy

Those who love deeply never grow old they may die of old age, but they die young.

Dorothy Canfield Fisher

A man growing old becomes a child again.

Debra Winger

I think when the full horror of being fifty hits you, you should stay home and have a good cry.

Josh Billings

A bad manner spoils everything, even reason and justice a good one supplies everything, gilds a No, sweetens a truth, and adds a touch of beauty to old age itself.

Baltasar Gracian

Morality comes with the sad wisdom of age, when the sense of curiosity has withered.

Graham Greene

I’ve been going through photos of my mother, looking back on her life and trying to put it into context. Very few people age gracefully enough to be photographed through their aging.

Jamie Lee Curtis

Age is a very high price to pay for maturity.

Tom Stoppard

Science cannot tell theology how to construct a doctrine of creation, but you can’t construct a doctrine of creation without taking account of the age of the universe and the evolutionary character of cosmic history.

John Polkinghorne

Rereading A.J. Liebling carries me happily back to an age when all good journalists knew they had plenty to be modest about, and were.

Russell Baker

Well, I’m in my 60s now. I finally look it, I think. People until I was 60 would always say they thought I looked younger, which I think, without flattering myself, I did, but I think I certainly have, as George Orwell says people do after a certain age, the face they deserve.

Christopher Hitchens

As I approve of a youth that has something of the old man in him, so I am no less pleased with an old man that has something of the youth. He that follows this rule may be old in body, but can never be so in mind.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

I hope to have one more boxing match at the age of 55. Given that demographic at the age of 55 to 65, you’ve got to make a statement with your life. Otherwise, you are just existing.

George Foreman

Age is something that doesn’t matter, unless you are a cheese.

Luis Bunuel

Age for me is just a number.

Haile Gebrselassie

You can construct the character of a man and his age not only from what he does and says, but from what he fails to say and do.

Norman Douglas

My acting career began at age three and my parents got me into it. I was in a McDonald’s commercial.

Corey Feldman

Inflation is when you pay fifteen dollars for the ten-dollar haircut you used to get for five dollars when you had hair.

Sam Ewing

Probably the happiest period in life most frequently is in middle age, when the eager passions of youth are cooled, and the infirmities of age not yet begun as we see that the shadows, which are at morning and evening so large, almost entirely disappear at midday.

Eleanor Roosevelt

People who refuse to rest honorably on their laurels when they reach retirement age seem very admirable to me.

Helen Hayes

Canada has a passive-aggressive culture, with a lot of sarcasm and righteousness. That went with my weird messianic complex. The ego is a fascinating monster. I was taught from a young age that I had to serve, so that turned into me thinking I had to save the planet.

Alanis Morissette

Old age is a shipwreck.

Charles de Gaulle

The whole business of marshaling one’s energies becomes more and more important as one grows older.

Hume Cronyn

The greatest writers of this age… are aware of the mystery of our existence.

J. B. Priestley

Oh rage! Oh despair! Oh age, my enemy!

Pierre Corneille

No Congress ever has seen fit to amend the Constitution to address any issue related to marriage. No Constitutional Amendment was needed to ban polygamy or bigamy, nor was a Constitutional Amendment needed to set a uniform age of majority to ban child marriages.

Judy Biggert

Middle age went by while I was mourning for my lost youth.

Mason Cooley

People are so busy dreaming the American Dream, fantasizing about what they could be or have a right to be, that they’re all asleep at the switch. Consequently we are living in the Age of Human Error.

Florence King

In passing, we should note this curious mark of our own age: the only absolute allowed is the absolute insistence that there is no absolute.

Francis Schaeffer

We are living in the machine age. For the first time in history the comedian has been compelled to supply himself with jokes and comedy material to compete with the machine. Whether he knows it or not, the comedian is on a treadmill to oblivion.

Fred Allen

My notion of a wife at 40 is that a man should be able to change her, like a bank note, for two 20s.

Warren Beatty

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.

It were a real increase of human happiness, could all young men from the age of nineteen be covered under barrels, or rendered otherwise invisible and there left to follow their lawful studies and callings, till they emerged, sadder and wiser, at the age of twenty-five.

Thomas Carlyle

People until I was 60 would always say they thought I looked younger, which I think, without flattering myself, I did, but I think I certainly have, as George Orwell says people do after a certain age, the face they deserve.

Christopher Hitchens

Whatever poet, orator or sage may say of it, old age is still old age.

Sinclair Lewis

It is the spirit of the age to believe that any fact, no matter how suspect, is superior to any imaginative exercise, no matter how true.

Gore Vidal

I am rediscovering the whole sexual dimension of life at the age of 86, really. And that also means discovering the feminine. So the whole of this dimension, which I had been seeking for a very long time, is now sort of opening itself up to me.

Bede Griffiths

The 19th century was the age of Individualism the 20th and 21st are the ages of Socialism.

Francis Parker Yockey

Discrimination due to age is one of the great tragedies of modern life. The desire to work and be useful is what makes life worth living, and to be told your efforts are not needed because you are the wrong age is a crime.

Johnny Ball

I had the good fortune to be able to right an injustice that I thought was being heaped on young people by lowering the voting age, where you had young people that were old enough to die in Vietnam but not old enough to vote for their members of Congress that sent them there.

Birch Bayh

I don’t feel old. I don’t feel anything till noon. That’s when it’s time for my nap.

Bob Hope

A tart temper never mellows with age, and a sharp tongue is the only edged tool that grows keener with constant use.

Washington Irving

Almost all of your life is lived by the seat of your pants, one unexpected event crashing into another, with no pattern or reason, and then you finally reach a point, around my age, where you spend more time than ever looking back. Why did this happen? Look where that led? You see the shape of things.

Ron Perlman

In 1981, at age 31, I was voted the best player in basketball, and the most valuable player in the league.

Julius Erving

Old age has its pleasures, which, though different, are not less than the pleasures of youth.

W. Somerset Maugham

I think the sport of wrestling, which I became involved with at the age of 14… I competed until I was 34, kind of old for a contact sport. I coached the sport until I was 47. I think the discipline of wrestling has given me the discipline I have to write.

John Irving

The mind that is wise mourns less for what age takes away than what it leaves behind.

William Wordsworth

I was very successful from a very early age, and I want to keep it.

John Mayer

Maybe it is something to do with age, but I have become fonder of poetry than of prose.

Aung San Suu Kyi

You know you’re getting old when all the names in your black book have M. D. after them.

Harrison Ford

In my youth I stressed freedom, and in my old age I stress order. I have made the great discovery that liberty is a product of order.

Will Durant

There’s a small club of women who are willing to age.

Debra Winger

After you’re older, two things are possibly more important than any others: health and money.

Helen Gurley Brown

A sense of freedom is something that, happily, comes with age and life experience.

Diane Keaton

I think being able to age gracefully is a very important talent. It is too late for me.

Clint Eastwood

With age, you see people fail more. You see yourself fail more. How do you keep that fearlessness of a kid? You keep going. Luckily, I’m not afraid to make a fool of myself.

Hugh Jackman

In the information age, you don’t teach philosophy as they did after feudalism. You perform it. If Aristotle were alive today he’d have a talk show.

Timothy Leary

You get to a certain age and you can’t judge yourself on your dad or your parents.

Ellie Goulding

Age is not a particularly interesting subject. Anyone can get old. All you have to do is live long enough.

Don Marquis

It was Julie Burchill who decreed that, beyond a certain age, a man should not be seen in a leather jacket.

Arthur Smith

When a noble life has prepared old age, it is not decline that it reveals, but the first days of immortality.

Muriel Spark

I could always sing, from a really young age, but my voice was really weird. I used to make my mum turn up the radio every day in our house. She was well into music so I got that from her.

Ellie Goulding

I never felt totally, 100%, patriotically English… I’d seen a lot of the world by an early age – sort of spent a lot of time traveling around Lebanon and I’d seen Babylon, and Damascus, and all sorts of places in the Middle East by the time I was ten. Then we’d return to Ruslip in West London… Done a fair bit of traveling really.

Andy Serkis

Memory in youth is active and easily impressible in old age it is comparatively callous to new impressions, but still retains vividly those of earlier years.

Charlotte Bronte

We were making the first step out of the age of chemistry and physics, and into the age of biology.

Jeremy Rifkin

Living in an age of advertisement, we are perpetually disillusioned. The perfect life is spread before us every day, but it changes and withers at a touch.

J. B. Priestley

I wear clothes that most people in the Midwest would probably deem inappropriate at my age. And I rock a bikini all summer long. I know that it’s not normal, but I just don’t care. I live once.

Liz Phair

Regardless of age, regardless of position, regardless of the business we happen to be in, all of us need to understand the importance of branding. We are CEOs of our own companies: Me, Inc. To be in business today, our most important job is to be head marketer for the brand called You.

Tom Peters

Men of age object too much, consult too long, adventure too little, repent too soon, and seldom drive business home to the full period, but content themselves with a mediocrity of success.

Dale Carnegie

We are always the same age inside.

Gertrude Stein

This is the curse of our age, even the strangest aberrations are no cure for boredom.

Stendhal

I knew at an early age I wanted to act. Acting was always easy for me. I don’t believe in predestination, but I do believe that once you get where ever it is you are going, that is where you were going to be.

Morgan Freeman

There’s a very small group of elite actresses who are my age, who people want to work with. It’s not easy to get a good job with good actors.

Amanda Peet

The reason for the slow progress of the world seems to lie in a single fact. Every man is born under the yoke, and grows up beneath the oppressions of his age.

John Jay Chapman

Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.

Albert Einstein

I feel like women are asked their age more than men.

Kristen Wiig

It is old age, rather than death, that is to be contrasted with life. Old age is life’s parody, whereas death transforms life into a destiny: in a way it preserves it by giving it the absolute dimension. Death does away with time.

Simone de Beauvoir

You can fake your age or mask it, but the passion that moves the characters has to be real.

Victoria Abril

I’m never overawed by a situation and I think that’s because I’ve always looked several years older than I am. So because people were treating me like I was 40 when I was 29, I’ve always felt in control of a situation. People used to say, when you’re 32, you’ll look 32. I’m still waiting for that moment, where my age catches up with my appearance.

Chris O’Dowd

My view is that at a younger age your optimism is more and you have more imagination etc. You have less bias.

Abdul Kalam

With the song ‘This Christmas’ I wanted to do something that was kind of different. I mean, Donny Hathaway is an amazing artist. So I wanted to bring my flavor to the song so when people over the age of 45 or 50 hear it they’ll be like ‘OK, he did his thing with that record.’ It’s like I can appeal to everybody and not just a younger demographic.

Chris Brown

Age is the first limitation on roles that I’ve ever had to encounter, and I hit that awhile ago.

Jack Nicholson

Everyone takes pause at 40. It’s the age you have to assess everything in your life. It’s the fictitious marker that’s always coming up when you’re young. The world really does look at you to kind of have it together by 40, and be successful by 40. Whatever success means.

Paul Feig

This is the first convention of the space age – where a candidate can promise the moon and mean it.

David Brinkley

Filth and old age, I’m sure you will agree, are powerful wardens upon chastity.

Don Marquis

Temper never mellows with age, and a sharp tongue is the only edged tool that grows keener with constant use.

Lindsay Lohan

Right up until the time I retired at age 37, I felt like there were still things that I could do better.

Julius Erving

I’ve been very competitive by nature from a young age, whether it was eating a bowl of pasta faster than somebody else, or always wanting to be the first one in line.

Maria Sharapova

It is folly for an eminent man to think of escaping censure, and a weakness to be affected with it. All the illustrious persons of antiquity, and indeed of every age in the world, have passed through this fiery persecution.

Joseph Addison

Salvador Dali

Amanda Seyfried

There’s also some element of coming of age during the Reagan administration, which everybody has painted as some glorious time in America, but I remember as being a very, very dark time. There was apocalypse in the air the punk rock movement made sense.

John Cusack

Old minds are like old horses you must exercise them if you wish to keep them in working order.

John Adams

Error is acceptable as long as we are young but one must not drag it along into old age.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

But look, I was born in 1956, the peak year for births in US history. I think I’m very representative of many of the thought processes my generation have been through and, by and large, people of my age have had their imprint planted on the consciousness of western society for a long time.

Tom Hanks

The reason for the sadness of this modern age and the men who live in it is that it looks for the truth in everything and finds it.

Edmond de Goncourt

We’re saying no changes for Medicare for people above the age of 55. And in order to keep the promise to current seniors who’ve already retired and organized their lives around this program, you have to reform it for the next generation.

Paul Ryan

Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age.

James Joyce

Old age is far more than white hair, wrinkles, the feeling that it is too late and the game finished, that the stage belongs to the rising generations. The true evil is not the weakening of the body, but the indifference of the soul.

Andre Maurois

We are all geniuses up to the age of ten.

Aldous Huxley

I like to be alone so I can write. But focus can hurt you. I don’t want to be some stress casualty in early middle age.

We accumulate our opinions at an age when our understanding is at its weakest.

Georg C. Lichtenberg

I think that everyone at any age should ask themselves, ‘where do I want to be today, where do I want to be tomorrow, and where do I want to be in a hundred years?’ We all have clear answers to those questions. We only have so much time. It’s a real shame if we don’t spend our lives trying to do that.

Jack Antonoff

You know what makes me feel old? When I see girls who are 20-something, or the new crop of actresses, and think, Aren’t we kind of the same age?

Jennifer Aniston

At its best our age is an age of searchers and discoverers, and at its worst, an age that has domesticated despair and learned to live with it happily.

Flannery O’Connor

I would like to see more airplay for all artists, no matter what age. I think there’s a lot of money being spent toward the young guys, but a lot of the older guys are the ones who blazed the trail for those young guys.

Willie Nelson

I’m very pleased to be here. Let’s face it, at my age I’m very pleased to be anywhere.

George Burns

Every age yearns for a more beautiful world. The deeper the desperation and the depression about the confusing present, the more intense that yearning.

Johan Huizinga

Staid middle age loves the hurricane passions of opera.

Mason Cooley

You get to a certain age and you just want to prove that you can still rock – that you’ve still got it.

Jarvis Cocker

I’ve always felt that sexuality is a really slippery thing. In this day and age, it tends to get categorized and labeled, and I think labels are for food. Canned food.

Michael Stipe

Each moment of a happy lover’s hour is worth an age of dull and common life.

William Wordsworth

At my age, no one is married, no one has kids, no one has a career.

Lena Dunham

I was always obsessed with being famous. I had Marilyn Monroe paper dolls as a child, and I was always obsessed with her. I’ve just been really driven in that direction, and none of my friends were. So, I don’t know what put that bug in me at a young age.

Holly Madison

Every age can be enchanting, provided you live within it.

Brigitte Bardot

High expectations weren’t nurtured in my neck of nowhere back then – children weren’t fawned over from an early age as ‘gifted’ and groomed for a prizewinning future self-esteem was considered something you had to pick from the garden yourself.

James Wolcott

This is what I asked for, and in this day and age that’s what actually goes on. But what hurts me the most is that I work just as hard as any other actress around my age, like Scarlett Johansson, but I just don’t get the opportunities that they get because people are so distracted by the mess that I created in my life.

Lindsay Lohan

In fact, my courage and my bravery at a young age was the thing I was bullied for, a kind of ‘Who do you think you are?’

Lady Gaga

My view is pensioners don’t have the one option that people of working age have. They can’t really increase their income, because they are no longer able to work.

Iain Duncan Smith

The freethinking of one age is the common sense of the next.

Matthew Arnold

Peace is the one condition of survival in this nuclear age.

Adlai E. Stevenson

A lot of music you might listen to is pretty vapid, it doesn’t always deal with our deeper issues. These are the things I’m interested in now, particularly at my age.

Annie Lennox

We hold that the most wonderful and splendid proof of genius is a great poem produced in a civilized age.

Thomas B. Macaulay

Age gives you a great sense of proportion. You can be very hard on yourself when you’re younger but now I just think ‘well everybody’s absolutely mad and I’m doing quite well’.

Steven Morrissey

It’s really amazing that in the age of unbelief, as a smart man called it, there isn’t even more fraud. After all, with no God, there’s no one to ever call you to account, and no accounting at all if you can get away with it.

Ben Stein

I was taught from a young age that many people would treat me as a second-class citizen because I was African-American and because I was female.

As winter strips the leaves from around us, so that we may see the distant regions they formerly concealed, so old age takes away our enjoyments only to enlarge the prospect of the coming eternity.

Jean Paul

I’m not afraid of aging.

Shelley Duvall

Of course, the ideal scenario for parenting is obviously two parents of a mature age.

Garrison Keillor

I started auditioning when I was about 10 and I didn’t get my first job until I was 12, and two years at that age is really hard.
