A Quote by Reverend Sidney Strong on age, earth, endings, expectation, fighting, future, good, heaven, joy, songs, and work

What is old age good for? No sadder sight on earth than to see one come to the last days, fruitless - when a harvest is expected. The summer ended, the autumn here and yet no reaper's songs of joy. No more glorious sight on earth or in heaven is there than to see the veteran, having finished his work, fought his fight, with the light of the future crowning, shining upon him!

A Quote by Reverend Sidney Strong on age, good, learning, and men

A good old age has learned to emphasize important things. It is sad to see one grown old only in years, or tall only in inches. Too many old men take delight in parade and show and externals, "childish things," not yet put away. A good old age emphasizes the abiding things.

A Quote by Reverend Sidney Strong on age, children, contentment, god, good, and joy

A good old age becomes mellow and ripe. There is less of irritability, more of contentment. Children are a joy to a good old age. God is nearer.

A Quote by Reverend Sidney Strong on age, good, hatred, jealousy, life, memory, past, people, and seasons

But all old people are not good. Some are reaping the harvest of iniquity. The passions have never been chained. Jealousy and hatred have grown stronger with the declining years, when old age is a season of lamentations. Past memories rise up to shake their bony fingers and mock. Life goes out in the midst of clouds and lightnings.

A Quote by Reverend Sidney Strong on age, day, and good

in

But a good old age - one like a "slow drooping, mellow autumn after a rich and glorious summer" - an old age as beautiful as some of the glorious days, when the sun rises in the early morn, sheds its light in brightness and warmth throughout the day and at night drops out of sight, looking even larger before it disappears.

A Quote by Reverend Sidney Strong on age, earth, good, kindness, and life

There is another kind of a good old age, still more beautiful, when the life has been hard and rough and thorny; it is the life of the great and good ones of the earth, the life of the true follower of our Lord and Master.
