- "Nothing can contribute more to peace of soul than the lack of any opinion whatever."
- "The Greeks possessed a knowledge of human nature we seem hardly able to attain to without passing through the strengthening hibernation of a new barbarism."
More In Age
- "A man of eighty has outlived probably three new schools of painting, two of architecture and poetry and a hundred in dress."― Lord Byron
- "Old age is when the liver spots show through your gloves."― Phyllis Diller
- "Despite what anti-aging ads say, growing older can be better. I feel better in my skin, 100 percent. You have greater effects of gravity, but the better sense of yourself you have is something I wouldn’t trade. Women who lie about their age – ‘why?’"― Demi Moore
