A diplomat is a man who remembers a lady’s birthday
but forgets her AGE.
A life of peace, purity, and refinement leads to a calm and untroubled old AGE.
AGE is not a particularly interesting subject. Anyone can get old. All you have to do is live long enough.
And proud men in old AGE learn to be wise.
Birth is suffering;
Old AGE is suffering;
Disease is suffering;
Death is suffering;
Sorrow and misery are suffering;
All these things, O brethren are suffering.
Birth, youth, old AGE and death are fixed points for all
and none can escape this cAGE.
Lord Shri Krishna
Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by AGE eighteen.
Education is the best provision for the journey to old AGE.
For life in general, there is but one decree : youth is a
blunder, manhood a struggle, old AGE a regret.
Forty is the old AGE of youth; fifty is the youth of old AGE.
From birth to AGE eighteen, a girl needs good parents.
From eighteen to thirty-five, she needs good looks.
From thirtyfive to fiftyfive, she needs a good
personality. From fiftyfive on, she needs good cash.
He who is of calm and happy nature will hardly feel the pressure of AGE, but to him who is of an opposite disposition youth and AGE are equally a burden.
How do we spend our old AGE ? In defending opinions,
not because we believe them to be true, but simply
because we once said that we thought they were.
I could not at any AGE be content to take my place in a corner by the fireside and simply look on.
In youth the days are short and the years are long; in
old AGE the years are short and the days are long.
