age

A Quote by Thomas Szasz on humble, humility, ego, children, age, learning, self-importance, vanity, and self-esteem

Every act of conscious learning requires the willingness to suffer an injury to one's self-esteem. That is why young children, before they are aware of their own self-importance, learn so easily; and why older persons, especially if vain or important, cannot learn at all.

Thomas Szasz (1920 - ?)

A Quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupery on childhood, age, wisdom, numbers, statistics, categorisations, and judgments

Grown-ups like numbers. When you tell them about a new friend, they never ask questions about what really matters. They never ask: 'What does his voice sound like?' 'What games does he like best?' 'Does he collect butterflies?' They ask: 'How old is he?' 'How many brothers does he have?' 'How much does he weigh?' 'How much money does his father make?' Only then do they think they know him.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery (1900 - 1944)

A Quote by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha on ignorance, death, disgust, horror, sick, illness, health, intoxication, old, age, knowledge, empathy, compassion, understanding, and youth

When ignorant people see someone who is old, they are disgusted and horrified, even though they too will be old some day.  I thought to myself:  I don't want to be like the ignorant people.  After that, I couldn't feel the usual intoxication with youth anymore.

When ignorant people see someone who is sick, they are disgusted and horrified, even though they too will be sick some day.  I thought to myself:  I don't want to be like the ignorant people.  After that, I couldn't feel the usual intoxication with health anymore.

When ignorant people see someone who is dead, they are disgusted and horrified, even thought they too will be dead some day.  I thought to myself:  I don't want to be like the ignorant people.  After then, I couldn't feel the usual intoxication with life anymore

Buddha (563 - 483 BC)

People still retain the errors of their childhood, their nation, and their age, long after they have accepted the truths needed to refute them.
