A Quote by Bernard Mannes Baruch on achievement, age, experience, energy, retirement, and time

Age is only a number, a cipher for the records. A man can't retire his experience. He must use it. Experience achieves more with less energy and time.

A Quote by Benjamin Disraeli on age, consequences, future, indifference, energy, nations, people, persuasion, posterity, prayer, preparation, prosperity, suffering, and youth

That we may live to see England once more possess a free Monarchy and a privileged and prosperous People, is my Prayer; that these great consequences can only be brought about by the energy and devotion of our Youth is my persuasion. We live in an age when to be young and to be indifferent can be no longer synonymous. We must prepare for the coming hour. The claims of the Future are represented by suffering millions; and the Youth of a Nation are the trustees of Posterity.

A Quote by Ben Jonson on age, complaints, death, disappointment, envy, force, hope, paradox, posterity, reason, present, time, and truth

That praises are without reason lavished on the dead, and that the honours due only to are paid to antiquity, is a complaint likely to be always continued by those who, being able to add nothing to truth, hope for eminence from the heresies of paradox; or those who, being forced by disappointment upon consolatory expedients, are willing to hope from posterity what the present age refuses, and flatter themselves that the regard which is yet denied by envy will be at last bestowed by time.
