A Quote by Thomas Stearns Eliot on age

in

The years between fifty and seventy are the hardest.  You are always being asked to do things, and yet you are not decrepit enough to turn them down.

T.S. Eliot (1888 - 1965)

A glorius place, a glorious age, I tell you! A very Neon Renaissance-And the myths that actually touched you at that time-not Hercules, Orpheus, Ulysses and Aeneas-but Superman, Captain Marvel, Batman.

A Quote by Timothy Leary on age, education, generations, history, information, life, energy, metaphor, philosophy, and science

We are dealing with the best-educated generation in history. But they've got a brain dressed up with nowhere to go. Science is all metaphor. In the information age, you don't teach philosophy as they did after feudalism. You perform it. If Aristotle were alive today he'd have a talk show. If you don't like what you are doing, you can always pick up your needle and move to another groove. If you take the game of life seriously, if you take your nervous system seriously, if you take your sense organs seriously, if you take the energy process seriously, you must turn on, tune in, and drop out.

A Quote by Thomas J. Watson on achievement, age, challenge, energy, simplicity, and thought

Within us all there are wells of thought and dynamos of energy which are not suspected until emergencies arise. Then oftentimes we find that it is comparatively simple to double or treble our former capacities and to amaze ourselves by the results achieved. Quotas, when set up for us by others, are challenges which goad us on to surpass ourselves. The outstanding leaders of every age are those who set up their own quotas and constantly exceed them.

A Quote by Thomas Jefferson on age, competence, freedom, friendship, government, guidance, home, honesty, justice, men, nations, peace, persuasion, politics, principles, religion, revolution, safety, and support

Equal and exact justice to all men, of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political; peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations, - entangling alliances with none; the support of the State governments in all their rights, as the most competent administrations for our domestic concerns, and the surest bulwarks against anti-republican tendencies; the preservation of the general government in its whole constitutional vigour, as the sheet anchor of our peace at home and safety abroad; . . . freedom of religion; freedom of the press; freedom of person under the protection of the habeas corpus; and trial by juries impartially selected,- these principles form the bright constellation which has gone before us, and guided our steps through an age of revolution and reformation.
