◆ Most people don't grow up. Most people age. They find parking spaces, honor their credit cards, get married, have children, and call that maturity. What that is, is aging.
- Maya Angelou100
◆ And meanwhile time goes about its immemorial work of making everyone look and feel like shit.
- Martin Amis99
◆ The curse of mortality. You spend the first portion of your life learning, growing stronger, more capable. And then, through no fault of your own, your body begins to fail. You regress. Strong limbs become feeble, keen senses grow dull, hardy constitutions deteriorate. Beauty withers. Organs quit. You remember yourself in your prime, and wonder where that person went. As your wisdom and experience are peaking, your traitorous body becomes a prison.
- Brandon Mull99
◆ As you get older; you've probably noticed that you tend to forget things. You'll be talking with somebody at a party, and you'll know that you know this person, but no matter how hard you try, you can't remember his or her name. This can be very embarassing, especially if he or she turns out to be your spouse.
- Dave Barry99
◆ Before I got married I had six theories about raising children; now, I have six children and no theories.
- John Wilmot99
◆ Wisdom is the reward for surviving our own stupidity.
- Brian Rathbone99
◆ Wisdom comes with winters
- Oscar Wilde99
◆ Women who love themselves are threatening; but men who love real women, more so.
- Naomi Wolf99
◆ These fragments I have shored against my ruins
- T.S. Eliot99
◆ The value of marriage is not that adults produce children, but that children produce adults.
- Peter De Vries99
◆ The older I get, the more I see there are these crevices in life where things fall in and you just can't reach them to pull them back out. So you can sit next to them and weep or you can get up and move forward. You have to stop worrying about who's not here and start worrying about who is.
- Alex Witchel99
◆ Birthdays could be such a bummer when you were older than the country you lived in.
- Lynsay Sands99
◆ I'm not ready to let the youthful part of myself go yet. If maturity means becoming a cynic, if you have to kill the part of yourself that is naive and romantic and idealistic - the part of you that you treasure most - to claim maturity, is it not better to die young but with your humanity intact?
- Kenneth Cain99
◆ It is lovely to meet an old person whose face is deeply lined, a face that has been deeply inhabited, to look in the eyes and find light there.
- John O'Donohue99
◆ The thing about old friends is not that they love you, but that they know you. They remember that disastrous New Year's Eve when you mixed White Russians and champagne, and how you wore that red maternity dress until everyone was sick of seeing the blaze of it in the office, and the uncomfortable couch in your first apartment and the smoky stove in your beach rental. They look at you and don't really think you look older because they've grown old along with you, and, like the faded paint in a beloved room, they're used to the look. And then one of them is gone, and you've lost a chunk of yourself. The stories of the terrorist attacks of 2001, the tsunami, the Japanese earthquake always used numbers, the deaths of thousands a measure of how great the disaster. Catastrophe is numerical. Loss is singular, one beloved at a time.
- Anna Quindlen99
