Every language is an old growth forest of the mind, a watershed of thought, an entire ecosystem of spiritual possibilities.

Wade Davis

You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.

Les Brown

Beware of the young doctor and the old barber.

Benjamin Franklin

When I was young, I admired clever people. Now that I am old, I admire kind people.

Abraham Joshua Heschel

If you don`t learn to laugh at troubles, you won`t have anything to laugh at when you grow old.

Edgar Watson Howe

The best way to get husbands to do something is to suggest that perhaps they are too old to do it.

Shirley Maclaine

No matter how old you get, crying in your mom`s arms will always make you feel 3 years old.

Camila Cabello

I do not fear death. I fear suffering. And I fear old age, though less so now that I am witnessing the tranquil and pleasant old age of my father. I am afraid of frailty, and of the absence of love. But death does not alarm me. It did not scare me when I was young, and I thought at the time that this was because it was such a remote prospect. But now, at sixty, the fear has yet to arrive. I love life, but life is also struggle, suffering, pain. I think of death as akin to a well-earned rest.

Carlo Rovelli

From the moment we are born we are presented with absolute facts rather than situated ones. We aren`t taught that distinctions such as young and old or healthy and unhealthy are social constructions and that their meaning depends on context. We are conditioned to learn about and see the world as a set of facts, such as 1 + 1 = 2. The world is far more subtle than such facts allow, and we should have learned that 1 + 1=2 only if we are using the base 10 number system, but that it equals 10 if the number system is base 2, and that 1 + 1 = 1 if we are adding one wad of chewing gum to one wad of chewing gum.

Ellen J. Langer

Cats were the gangsters of the animal world, living outside the law and often dying there. There were a great many of them who never grew old by the fire.

Stephen King

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
