Famous quotes containing the word aged:

    I cannot give them my confidence; pardon me, gentlemen, confidence is a plant of slow growth in an aged bosom: youth is the season of credulity.
    William, Earl Of Pitt (1708–1778)

    An aged man is but a paltry thing,
    A tattered coat upon a stick, unless
    Soul clap its hands and sing, and louder sing
    For every tatter in its mortal dress.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    Endure what life God gives and ask no longer span;
    Cease to remember the delights of youth, travel-wearied aged man;
    Delight becomes death-longing if all longing else be vain.
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)
