Ages

Famous quotes containing the word ages:

    I’m 65 and I guess that puts me in with the geriatrics. But if there were fifteen months in every year, I’d only be 48. That’s the trouble with us. We number everything. Take women, for example. I think they deserve to have more than twelve years between the ages of 28 and 40.
    James Thurber (1894–1961)

    How many ages hence
    Shall this our lofty scene be acted over
    In states unborn and accents yet unknown!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    If in that Syrian garden, ages slain,
    You sleep, and know not you are dead in vain,
    Nor even in dreams behold how dark and bright
    Ascends in smoke and fire by day and night
    The hate you died to quench and could but fan,
    Sleep well and see no morning, son of man.
    —A.E. (Alfred Edward)
