I am thankful to the Nobel committee for recognising the plight of millions of children who are suffering in this modern age.
He who is of calm and happy nature will hardly feel the pressure of age, but to him who is of an opposite disposition youth and age are equally a burden.
Alas, after a certain age every man is responsible for his face.
Old age is a shipwreck.
Not just in commerce but in the world of ideas too our age is putting on a veritable clearance sale. Everything can be had so dirt cheap that one begins to wonder whether in the end anyone will want to make a bid.
We live in an age of generational turmoil. Baby-boom parents are accused of clinging on to jobs and houses which they should be freeing up for their children. Twentysomethings who can’t afford to leave home and can’t get jobs are attacked as aimless and immature.
I admired my father very much… at the age of sixteen. But now I see that he was a brutal and cruel man, – but not without remorse, and that was what tortured us, his alternations.
O love, if I regret the age when one savors you, it is not for the hour of pleasure, but for the one that follows it.
It is well for the world that in most of us, by the age of thirty, the character has set like plaster, and will never soften again.
Age considers; youth ventures.
