“When life has been well spent, age is a loss of what it can well spare,muscular strength, organic instincts, gross bulk, and works that belong to these. But the central wisdom, which was old in infancy, is young in fourscore years, and dropping off obstructions, leaves in happy subjects the mind purified and wise.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson (18031882)
“Reason is, and only ought to be, the slave of the passions, and can never pretend to any other office than to serve and obey them.”
—David Hume (17111776)
