What is older?

Famous quotes containing the word older:

    The older we become, the more certain our future.
    Mason Cooley (b. 1927)

    Children need people in order to become human.... It is primarily through observing, playing, and working with others older and younger than himself that a child discovers both what he can do and who he can become—that he develops both his ability and his identity.... Hence to relegate children to a world of their own is to deprive them of their humanity, and ourselves as well.
    Urie Bronfenbrenner (b. 1917)

    As boys without bonds to their fathers grow older and more desperate about their masculinity, they are in danger of forming gangs in which they strut their masculinity for one another, often overdo it, and sometimes turn to displays of fierce, macho bravado and even violence.
    Frank Pittman (20th century)
