"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.”
"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.""
"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…."
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
"When young we have a vivid sense of basic values like trust and warm-heartedness, which we tend to neglect in today’s competitive world as we grow up, yet from birth we all have a need for affection. The emotions we experience today have not changed much over the last few thousand years, but the interest increasing numbers of people are showing in their inner world and how their emotions work is a sign of maturity."
“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."
