Famous quotes containing the words golden and/or age:

    We call the beautiful the highest, because it appears to us the golden mean, escaping the dowdiness of the good and the heartlessness of the true.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    I am actually what my age and my upbringing have made me—a bourgeois who adheres to the British constitution, adheres to it rather than supports it, and the fact that this isn’t dignified doesn’t worry me.
    —E.M. (Edward Morgan)
