To keep the heart unwrinkled, to be hopeful, kindly, cheerful, reverent that is to triumph over old age.
There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.
Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.
Old minds are like old horses; you must exercise them if you wish to keep them in working order.
Forty is the old age of youth; fifty the youth of old age.
Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.
If you haven’t turned rebel by twenty you’ve got no heart; if you haven’t turned establishment by thirty you’ve got no brains!
I will never be an old man. To me, old age is always 15 years older than I am.
Age does not protect you from love. But love, to some extent, protects you from age.
