Engrave this Quote Nature is full of freaks, and now puts an old head on young shoulders, and then takes a young heart heating under fourscore winters.

Engrave this Quote The age of a woman doesn't mean a thing. The best tunes are played on the oldest fiddles.

Engrave this Quote The nearer people approach old age the closer they return to a semblance of childhood, until the time comes for them to depart this life, again like children, neither tired of living nor aware of death.

Engrave this Quote People between 20 and 40 are not sympathetic. The child has the capacity to do but it can't know. It only knows when it is no longer able to do-after 40. Between 20 and 40 the will of the child to do gets stronger, more dangerous, but it has not yet begun to know yet. Since his capacity to do is forced into channels of evil through environment and pressures, man is strong before he is moral. The world's anguish is caused by people between 20 and 40.

-William Faulkner
interview in Writers at Work (1958)
Engrave this Quote Life begins at 40 -- but so do fallen arches, rheumatism, faulty eyesight, and the tendency to tell a story to the same person, three or four times.

Engrave this Quote Age does not diminish the extreme disappointment of having a scoop of ice cream fall from the cone.

Engrave this Quote One of the many things nobody ever tells you about middle age is that it's such a nice change from being young.

Engrave this Quote There was another silence, while Marjorie considered whether or not convincing her mother was worth the trouble. People over forty can seldom be permanently convinced of anything. At eighteen our convictions are hills from which we look; at forty-five they are caves in which we hide.

Engrave this Quote Women are not forgiven for aging. Bob Redford's lines of distinction are my old-age wrinkles.

Engrave this Quote An important antidote to American democracy is American gerontocracy. The positions of eminence and authority in Congress are allotted in accordance with length of service, regardless of quality. Superficial observers have long criticized the United States for making a fetish of youth. This is unfair. Uniquely among modern organs of public and private administration, its national legislature rewards senility.

Engrave this Quote Among the virtues and vices that make up the British character, we have one vice, at least, that Americans ought to view with sympathy. For they appear to be the only people who share it with us. I mean our worship of the antique. I do not refer to beauty or even historical association. I refer to age, to a quantity of years.
