"A heart in love with beauty never grows old." -Turkish Proverb
“There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.”
"In aligning ourselves with the eternal self, we age not in a straight line leading from luscious youth to decrepit age, but rather like the flowering lotus opening more and more to the light of the sun. And age becomes a miracle."
"My biggest sorrow, when looking back on my youth, is how much of it I somehow missed. Now, looking at my life today, I don't want to make the same mistake. I don't want to miss this. As Bonnie Raitt sang like she was singing it for all of us, "Life gets mighty precious when there's less of it to waste.""
"That we age, if we are lucky enough to do it, is a given. How we age is up to us."
"For me at this time in my life I recognize that everything is about
moving closer to that which is God. And without a full, spiritual center
— and I am not talking about religion, I am talking about without
understanding the fullness from which you’ve come you can’t really
fulfill your supreme moment of destiny…."
"All of us have seen people who’ve aged with sorrow; we’ve seen others as well who’ve aged with joy. It’s time to intend to age with joy, deciding that the joy of youth is a good kind of joy, but it’s not the only kind."
many people look at aging with such grim, humourless expectation. They
don't even want to admit that they're there. They think it is over but
it's not. It's the beginning of an entirely new developmental stage that
really is unprecedented in our human history.”
~John C. Robinson
"No one can age well who lets go of their sense of wonder."
“Many many people find themselves wondering in their 40s and 50s, is this all there is?”
~Neale Donald Walsch
"In fact, looking back, it seems to me that I was clueless until I was about fifty years old"
“She looked like autumn, when leaves turned and fruit ripened.”
~Sarah Addison Allen
“And the beauty of a woman, with passing years only grows!”
“I want to grow old without facelifts... I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I've made. Sometimes I think it would be easier to avoid old age, to die young, but then you'd never complete your life, would you? You'd never wholly know you.”
"Don't be afraid of death; be afraid of an unlived life. You don't have to live forever; you just have to live."
