Famous quotes containing the words aged and, party, pensioners and/or aged:

    See how the sacred old flamingoes come,
    Painting with shadow all the marble steps:
    Aged and wise, they seek their wonted perches
    Within the temple, devious walking, made
    To wander by their melancholy minds.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Most adults will do anything to avoid going to a party where they don’t know anyone. But for some reason we may be impatient with the young child who hesitates on the first day of school, or who recoils from the commotion of a birthday party where there are no familiar faces.
    Cathy Rindner Tempelsman (20th century)

    The church is a sort of hospital for men’s souls, and as full of quackery as the hospital for their bodies. Those who are taken into it live like pensioners in their Retreat or Sailor’s Snug Harbor, where you may see a row of religious cripples sitting outside in sunny weather.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    “She’s somebody’s mother, boys, you know,
    For all she’s aged and poor and slow,

    “And I hope some fellow will lend a hand
    To help my mother, you understand,

    “If ever she’s poor and old and gray,
    When her own dear boy is far away.”
    Mary Dow Brine (1816–1913)
