aging Quotes

Seven of the best book quotes about aging
  1. #1
    “Instead of being enfeebled by age, the Elder had been empowered by it; He could outfly any gull in the Flock, and he had learned skills that the others were only gradually coming to know.”
  2. #2
    “I am told that I am vague and confused, and if I am vague and confused now, what shall I be later on?”
  3. #3
    “As we age and plasticity declines, it becomes increasingly difficult for us to change in response to the world, even if we want to. We find familiar types of stimulation pleasurable; we seek out like-minded individuals to associate with, and research shows we tend to ignore or forget, or attempt to discredit, information that does not match our beliefs, or perception of the world, because it is very distressing and difficult to think and perceive in unfamiliar ways.”
  4. #4
    “Thus she passed from generation to generation—dear, inescapable, impervious, tranquil, and perverse.”
  5. #5
    “For let me tell you, that the more the pleasures of the body fade away, the greater to me is the pleasure and charm of conversation.”
  6. #6
    “There is nothing which for my part I like better, Cephalus, than conversing with aged men; for I regard them as travellers who have gone a journey which I too may have to go, and of whom I ought to enquire, whether the way is smooth and easy, or rugged and difficult.”
  7. #7
    “If you still think you’re a young pup then you are, no matter what the calendar says.”
