Old - Quotes

 TimeFavorites

You`re smart too late and old too soon.

Mike Tyson

If all morality comes from god, what does it mean to believe "god is good"? Wouldn`t that be a tautology? If Satan were to win the final battle (the spoiler says he doesn`t), defeat god, and become the most powerful force in the universe, wouldn`t he be our god? We`d meet the new boss, and he`d be the same as the old boss - good, by definition.

Penn Jillette

We don`t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

George Bernard Shaw

You can never pinpoint the exact moment that a species came to be, because it never did. Just like how you used to be a baby and now you're older, but there was no single day when you went to bed young and woke up old. (...) There was no first human. It sounds like a paradox, it sounds like it breaks the whole theory of evolution, but it's really a key to truly understanding how evolution works. Evolution happens like a movie, with frames moving by both quickly and gradually, and we often can't see the change while it's occurring. Every time we find a fossil, it's a snapshot back in time, often with thousands of frames missing in between, and we're forced to reconstruct the whole film. Life is what happens in between the snapshots. Instead of a nice smooth road this is a journey on stepping stones and we give each one their own name.

Joe Hanson

We can’t reach old age by another man’s road. My habits protect my life, but they would assassinate you.

Mark Twain

One is never too old to be a student of the enemy.

Orson Scott Card

A person`s never too old for stories [...]. Man and boy, girl and woman, never too old. We live for them.

Stephen King

In science it often happens that scientists say, "You know that`s a really good argument; my position is mistaken", and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn`t happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.

Carl Sagan

Science is based on experiment, on a willingness to challenge old dogma, on an openness to see the universe as it really is.

Carl Sagan

Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future.

Deepak Chopra

New Years Eve... Someone just needs to change the name to "Same Old Years Eve". Because that "new", implying all that hope and promise, it`s not fooling anyone.

Veronica Mars (movie)

Old age is not in itself matter for sorrow; it is matter for thanks, if we have left our work done behind us.

Thomas Carlyle

People who eavesdrop seldom hear good about themselves, right? An old adage, and a true one.

Charlaine Harris

It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often, it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends.

Love Actually (movie)

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
and wild and sweet
The word repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
