I seem to have misplaced my inspiration somewhere, so I did what I usually do on such an occasion – looked for it in books.
In no particular order, here are some of my favourite quotes about age:
“I don’t believe in aging. I believe in forever altering one’s aspect to the sun.”
– Virginia Woolf
“There is a certain part of all of us that lives outside of time. Perhaps we become aware of our age only at exceptional moments and most of the time we are ageless.”
– Milan Kundera
“Age isn’t how old you are but how old you feel.”
– Gabriel García Márquez, Memories of My Melancholy Whores
“Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”
– Mark Twain
“None are so old as those who have outlived enthusiasm.”
– Henry David Thoreau
I agree with these. You?
