Moments of Reason

Old age is winter, alas, for many people, but for those who are wise and optimistic, it is the happy and fruitful time of harvest.

So long as one continues to be amazed, one can delay growing old.

The entire life of a human being depends upon ”yes” and “no” uttered two or three times between the ages of sixteen and twenty-five.

Old age arrives suddenly, as does the snow. One morning, on awakening, one realizes that everything is white.

It is by growing old that one learns to remain young.

If someone declares that he is able to do everything at sixty that he was able to do at twenty, then he was not doing very much when he was twenty.

Old age embellishes everything. It has the effect of the setting sun on the beautiful twilights of autumn.

As one grows old, one generally rids himself of his shortcomings because they no longer serve any useful purpose.

There are four great periods in the life of a man; the one where he believe in Santa Claus, the one where he no longer believes in Santa Claus, the one where he is Santa Claus, and finally the one where he looks more and more like Santa Claus.

The good side of this, as old as one might be, is that one is always younger than he will ever be.

The person who considers himself too old to learn something has probably always been that way.
