Famous quotes containing the word age:

    Old age is far more than white hair, wrinkles, the feeling that it is too late and the game finished, that the stage belongs to the rising generations. The true evil is not the weakening of the body, but the indifference of the soul.
    André Maurois (1885–1967)

    My age is as a lusty winter,
    Frosty but kindly.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    From age eleven to age sixteen I lived a spartan life without the usual adolescent uncertainty. I wanted to be the best swimmer in the world, and there was nothing else.
    Diana Nyad (b. 1949)
