Famous quotes containing the word age:

    Perhaps a modern society can remain stable only by eliminating adolescence, by giving its young, from the age of ten, the skills, responsibilities, and rewards of grownups, and opportunities for action in all spheres of life. Adolescence should be a time of useful action, while book learning and scholarship should be a preoccupation of adults.
    Eric Hoffer (1902–1983)

    Great Wits are sure to Madness near alli’d
    And thin Partitions do their Bounds divide;
    Else, why should he, with Wealth and Honour blest,
    Refuse his Age the needful hours of Rest?
    John Dryden (1631–1700)

    One age is like another for the soul.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
