A Quote by Kent Nerburn on age, patience, teachers, elders, lessons, and change

It is not easy for a man to be as great as a mountain or a forest.  But that is why the creator gave them to us as teachers.  Now that I am old I Iook once more toward them for lessons, instead of trying to understand the ways of men. They tell me to be patient.  They tell me I cannot change what is, I can only hope to change what will become.  Let the grasses grow over our scars, they say, and let flowers bloom over our wounds.

A Quote by Hermann Hesse on hesse, youth, age, happy, and sad

Age is a state of mind.
Youth and age exist only among the ordinary people.
All the more talented and exceptional of us;
are sometimes old,
just as we are sometimes happy,
and sometimes sad.

The wise man then followed a simple way of life-which is hardly surprising when you consider how even in this modern age he seeks to be as little encumbered as he possibly can.

A Quote by Wilma Scott Heide on age, ancestry, human rights, masculinity, religion, sex, talent, and truth

Every social trait labelled masculine or feminine is in truth a human trait. It is our human right to develop and contribute our talents whatever our race, sex, religion, ancestry, age. Human rights are indivisible!

A Quote by William Wordsworth on age and victory

The monumental pomp of age Was with this goodly personage; A stature undepressed in size, Unbent, which rather seemed to rise In open victory o'er the weight Of seventy years, to loftier height.
