old

A Quote by Walt Whitman on old, is, still, current, since, and 1879

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)
