Through him speaks a shrewd and magnanimous people, a people who have woven together into one wisdom a profound, old, terrible, and unimaginably various experience of life. But he himself is young: impatient, inexperienced. He stands higher than we stand, seeing wider, but he is himself only the height of a man.Ursula K. Le Guin Old Age And Experience Sayings By Ursula K. Le Guin: Through him speaks a shrewd and magnanimous people, a people who have woven together into
Literature has neglected the old and their emotions. The novelists never told us that in love, as in other matters, the young are just beginners and that the art of loving matures with age and experience.Isaac Bashevis Singer Old Age And Experience Sayings By Isaac Bashevis Singer: Literature has neglected the old and their emotions. The novelists never told us that in
The meaning of pain is different for different people ... It depends on their age, their experience and their knowledge. But the intensity of it is the same, young or old ... and unfortunately it is inevitable ... just like failure, that results in more pain ...
It's a vicious cycle.
Shreyas Tripathy Old Age And Experience Sayings By Shreyas Tripathy: The meaning of pain is different for different people ... It depends on their age,
I know now that everything after the accident was merely a tactic to indulge in escapism and self-delusion. When you are hit by a streetcar that almost smashes you to a pulp, when you experience your own end...there is no recovery, only temporary respite, she thought.

Pain made me aware of my body. My body made me aware of deterioration and death. That awareness made me old. My death sentence may have been deferred, but I now had to live with a twofold realization. Not only was I going to die - there was nothing unusual about that except that I was made to realize it at a tender age - but I knew exactly what that meant. Because I had already been through it. Unlike other condemned people for whom death is an abstraction because they have no idea what really awaits them, my stay of death came with a constant reminder, the presence of pain.
Slavenka Drakulic Old Age And Experience Sayings By Slavenka Drakulic: I know now that everything after the accident was merely a tactic to indulge in
Genius has no youth, but starts with the ripeness of age and old experience.Mark Twain Old Age And Experience Sayings By Mark Twain: Genius has no youth, but starts with the ripeness of age and old experience.
though aging reduces speed, it increases experience and understandingErnest Agyemang Yeboah Old Age And Experience Sayings By Ernest Agyemang Yeboah: though aging reduces speed, it increases experience and understanding
Today I am 65 years old. I still look good. I appreciate and enjoy my age. A lot of people resist transition and therefore never allow themselves to enjoy who they are. Embrace the change, no matter what it is; once you do, you can learn about the new world you're in and take advantage of it. You still bring to bear all your prior experience, but you are riding on another level. It's completely liberating.Nikki Giovanni Old Age And Experience Sayings By Nikki Giovanni: Today I am 65 years old. I still look good. I appreciate and enjoy my
Domestic pain can be searing, and it is usually what does us in. It's almost indigestible: death, divorce, old age, drugs; brain-damaged children, violence, senility, unfaithfulness. Good luck with figuring it out. It unfolds, and you experience it, and it is so horrible and endless that you could almost give up a dozen times. But grace can be the experience of a second wind, when even though what you want is clarity and resolution, what you get is stamina and poignancy and the strength to hang on. Through the most ordinary things, books, for instance, or a postcard, or eyes or hands, life is transformed. Hands that for decades reached out to hurt us, to drag us down, to control us, or to wave us away in dismissal now reach for us differently. They become instruments of tenderness, buoyancy, exploration, hope.Anne Lamott Old Age And Experience Sayings By Anne Lamott: Domestic pain can be searing, and it is usually what does us in. It's almost
What if experience is disappointment, and a human's old age has no sense, and all what we acquire in our lifetime is a habit for disappointment?Lara Biyuts Old Age And Experience Sayings By Lara Biyuts: What if experience is disappointment, and a human's old age has no sense, and all
He was almost a poet in his old age and his notion of what happened took a poetic turn. 'I had come to the time in my life when prayer became necessary and so I invented gods and prayed to them,' he said. 'I did not say my prayers in words nor did I kneel down but sat perfectly still in my chair. In the late afternoon when it was hot and quiet on Main Street or in the winter when the days were gloomy, the gods came into the office and I thought no one knew about them. Then I found that this woman Elizabeth knew, that she worshipped also the same gods. I have a notion that she came to the office because she thought the gods would be there but she was happy to find herself not alone just the same. It was an experience that cannot be explained, although I suppose it is always happening to men and women in all sorts of places.Sherwood Anderson Old Age And Experience Sayings By Sherwood Anderson: He was almost a poet in his old age and his notion of what happened
Remember: knowing originates on the inside, knowledge on the outside. Certain facts and concepts may change, come into being, disappear, or be replaced, but what it is to be a human being will never really be all that different. Every person to ever live, now and the whole of history, has had a rich and elaborate world of inner experience, but it has mainly been flesh upon the same skeleton. We are all
born, come to terms with the world, and then come to terms with coming to terms with the world, as we go through the stages of puberty, old age, death and
making sense of it all in between. We all live the same process in different ways. Some live it longer than others and some cover more ground. But that's it.
Oli Anderson Old Age And Experience Sayings By Oli Anderson: Remember: knowing originates on the inside, knowledge on the outside. Certain facts and concepts may
To have the experience I did as a child, I would have to be a physically different being, one with whom I share nearly nothing. On a cellular level, aside from the neurons of my cerebral cortex and a few other stranglers in my heart and eyes, I am not him.Thomm Quackenbush Old Age And Experience Sayings By Thomm Quackenbush: To have the experience I did as a child, I would have to be a
The good men of every age are those who go to the roots of the old thoughts and bear fruit with them.Friedrich Nietzsche Old Age And Experience Sayings By Friedrich Nietzsche: The good men of every age are those who go to the roots of the
And may at last my weary age Find out the peaceful hermitage, The hairy gown and mossy cell, Where I may sit and rightly spell Of every star that heaven doth shew, And every herb that sips the dew, Till old experience to attain To something like prophetic strain.John Milton Old Age And Experience Sayings By John Milton: And may at last my weary age Find out the peaceful hermitage, The hairy gown
Reading books in one's youth is like looking at the moon through a crevice; reading books in middle age is like looking at the moon in one's courtyard; and reading books in old age is like looking at the moon on an open terrace.Lin Yutang Old Age And Experience Sayings By Lin Yutang: Reading books in one's youth is like looking at the moon through a crevice; reading
We are born one time only, we can never start a new life equipped with the experience we've gained from the previous one. We leave childhood without knowing what youth is, we marry without knowing what it is to be married, and even when we enter old age, we don't know what it is we're heading for: the old are innocent children innocent of thier old age. In that sense, man's world is the planet of inexperience.Milan Kundera Old Age And Experience Sayings By Milan Kundera: We are born one time only, we can never start a new life equipped with
My father's life was so decimated by his earliest experiences. His mother died when he was 7 years old, which he always said was the worst experience in his life. When he was 8, his father disappeared and he was on his own from the age of 8.Walter Mosley Old Age And Experience Sayings By Walter Mosley: My father's life was so decimated by his earliest experiences. His mother died when he
Looking at things is never time wasted. If your children want to stand and stare, let them. When I was marvelling at the beauty of a painting or enjoying a great view it did not occur to me that the experience, however intense, would be of value many years later. But there it has remained, tucked away in hidden bits of my mind and now it comes, shouldering aside even the most passionate love affairs.Diana Athill Old Age And Experience Sayings By Diana Athill: Looking at things is never time wasted. If your children want to stand and stare,
One of the seats of emotion and memory in the brain is the amygdala, he explained. When something threatens your life, this area seems to kick into overdrive, recording every last detail of the experience. The more detailed the memory, the longer the moment seems to last. "This explains why we think that time speeds up when we grow older," Eagleman said
why childhood summers seem to go on forever, while old age slips by while we're dozing. The more familiar the world becomes, the less information your brain writes down, and the more quickly time seems to pass.
Burkhard Bilger Old Age And Experience Sayings By Burkhard Bilger: One of the seats of emotion and memory in the brain is the amygdala, he
A series of books, dilapidated and faded, sit bundled together. Most of the bindings are separating from the yellowed pages, but each is at home in its battered state. Their wrinkled pages and discolored skin tell not of old age, but of a good life. These books, unlike so many others, were not just read, but revisited, loved, and experienced.Kelseyleigh Reber Old Age And Experience Sayings By Kelseyleigh Reber: A series of books, dilapidated and faded, sit bundled together. Most of the bindings are
One of the greatest glories of growing older is the willingness to ask why and, getting no good answer, deciding to follow my own inclinations and desires. Asking why is the way to wisdom. Why are we supposed to want possessions we don't need and work that seems beside the point and tight shoes and a fake tan? Why are we supposed to think new is better than old, youth and vigor better than long life and experience? Why are we supposed to turn our backs on those who have preceded us and to snipe at those who come after? When we were small children we asked 'Why?' constantly. Asking the question now is more a matter of testing the limits of what sometimes seems a narrow world. One of the useful things about age is realizing conventional wisdom is often simply inertia with a candy coating conformity.Anna Quindlen Old Age And Experience Sayings By Anna Quindlen: One of the greatest glories of growing older is the willingness to ask why and,
To make good use of life, one should have in youth the experience of advanced years, and in old age the vigor of youth.Stanislaw Leszczynski Old Age And Experience Sayings By Stanislaw Leszczynski: To make good use of life, one should have in youth the experience of advanced
Growing old is, of all things we experience, that which takes the most courage, and at a time when we have the least resources, especially with which to meet frustration.May Sarton Old Age And Experience Sayings By May Sarton: Growing old is, of all things we experience, that which takes the most courage, and
There is nothing that anyone can get past a forty-five-year-old woman." We laugh hard, the first honest sound I make that afternoon, or in many days, each of us feeling the ravages of experience, our debt to enduring. We are not to be fucked with. We rule. Even as we age and help our children push past us, as we worry about the estimate for the roof, forget things we meant to do, regard our widening bodies, we rule. We've returned again and again to our original selves for another look; we have refined our purpose. Changes we thought we'd been resisting have anyway been wrought, and they have made us unbreakable.Susanna Sonnenberg Old Age And Experience Sayings By Susanna Sonnenberg: There is nothing that anyone can get past a forty-five-year-old woman." We laugh hard, the
The popular mythology of creative genius depends on beloved stereotypes of the artist in youth and old age: the misunderstood upstart who forces us to see the world afresh; and the revered sage who shows us depths of insight attainable only through a lifetime of hard-won experience.Martin Filler Old Age And Experience Sayings By Martin Filler: The popular mythology of creative genius depends on beloved stereotypes of the artist in youth
At the time of our conversations, Chelsea Manning was 22 years of age - my own age when I made the choice to surrender to federal authorities ... I saw someone very familiar that day, and suddenly felt very old.Adrian Lamo Old Age And Experience Sayings By Adrian Lamo: At the time of our conversations, Chelsea Manning was 22 years of age - my

Thought cannot avoid the ethical or reverence and love for all life. It will abandon the old confined systems of ethics and be forced to recognize the ethics that knows no bounds. But on the other hand, those who believe in love for all creation must realize clearly the difficulties involved in the problem of a boundless ethic and must be resolved not to veil from humankind the conflicts which this ethic will involve us, but allow us really to experience them. To think out in every implication the ethic of love for all creation this is the difficult task which confronts our age.Albert Schweitzer Old Age And Experience Sayings By Albert Schweitzer: Thought cannot avoid the ethical or reverence and love for all life. It will abandon
Induratize (v.) To harden the heart. Among the inevitabilities of old age are that the heart is hardened twice; first figuratively, through experience and loss, and then literally, in the form of atherosclerosis.Ammon Shea Old Age And Experience Sayings By Ammon Shea: Induratize (v.) To harden the heart. Among the inevitabilities of old age are that the
This is a city of absolute enchantment in the literal sense of the word. It loosens all the bonds binding the traveller to his own age and sets him free to live in a past that is vital and crude but never ugly. Herat is as old as history and as moving as a great epic poem - if Afghanistan had nothing else it would have been worth coming to experience this.Dervla Murphy Old Age And Experience Sayings By Dervla Murphy: This is a city of absolute enchantment in the literal sense of the word. It
If you were offered the chance to live your own life again, would you seize the opportunity? The only real philosophical answer is automatically self-contradictory: 'Only if I did not know that I was doing so.' To go through the entire experience once more would be banal and Sisyphean - even if it did build muscle - whereas to wish to be young again and to have the benefit of one's learned and acquired existence is not at all to wish for a repeat performance, or a Groundhog Day. And the mind ought to, but cannot, set some limits to wish-thinking. All right, same me but with more money, an even sturdier penis, slightly different parents, a briefer latency period ... the thing is absurd. I seriously would like to know what it was to be a woman, but like blind Tiresias would also want the option of re-metamorphosing if I wished. How terrible it is that we have so many more desires than opportunities.Christopher Hitchens Old Age And Experience Sayings By Christopher Hitchens: If you were offered the chance to live your own life again, would you seize
Oh, once you've been initiated into the Elderly, the world doesn't want you back." Veronica settled herself in a rattan chair and adjusted her hat just so. "We - by whom I mean anyone over sixty - commit two offenses just by existing. One is Lack of Velocity. We drive too slowly, walk too slowly, talk too slowly. The world will do business with dictators, perverts, and drug barons of all stripes, but being slowed down it cannot abide. Our second offence is being Everyman's memento mori. The world can only get comfy in shiny-eyed denial if we are out of sight.David Mitchell Old Age And Experience Sayings By David Mitchell: Oh, once you've been initiated into the Elderly, the world doesn't want you back." Veronica
When you are a child at home alone, you're afraid someone might come; when you are old and at home alone, you're afraid no one will come.Ljupka Cvetanova Old Age And Experience Sayings By Ljupka Cvetanova: When you are a child at home alone, you're afraid someone might come; when you
Careful old-timer, your age is showing."
"Hey, I'm only thirty-two. I'm in my prime, woman!"
She harrumphed. "Well, I'm a mere twenty-five and you're way too old for me."
Jay's eyes smoldered as he whispered, "My experience is your gain.
Anne Rainey Old Age And Experience Sayings By Anne Rainey: Careful old-timer, your age is showing.""Hey, I'm only thirty-two. I'm in my prime, woman!"She harrumphed.
If this was a flirtation - and it felt like a flirtation - it was like no other flirtation in Katya's experience: with a man old enough to be her grandfather?Joyce Carol Oates Old Age And Experience Sayings By Joyce Carol Oates: If this was a flirtation - and it felt like a flirtation - it was
A lot of who you were in middle age was determined before you had a chance to manipulate, control, or eve understand the things around you. It was no mystery, he thought, why some old people's minds returned to their youth; the wonder of those years, the discoveries, the first experience with the dirty secret of death, and the first stirrings of lust and love were indelible, drawn in luminous colors on clean canvas. Indeed, the first sex act was so mind-boggling that most people could still remember it clearly twenty, thirty, sixty years later.Nelson DeMille Old Age And Experience Sayings By Nelson DeMille: A lot of who you were in middle age was determined before you had a
We can never skip growing old. As we grow older, we understand old things and things of old times better!Ernest Agyemang Yeboah Old Age And Experience Sayings By Ernest Agyemang Yeboah: We can never skip growing old. As we grow older, we understand old things and
Observing any human being from infancy, seeing someone come into existence, like a new flower in bud, each petal first tightly furled around another, and then the natural loosening and unfurling, the opening into a bloom, the life of that bloom, must be something wonderful to behold; to see experience collect in the eyes, around the corners of the mouth, the weighing down of the brow, the heaviness in heart and soul, the thick gathering around the waist, the breasts, the slowing down of footsteps not from old age but only with the caution of life-all this is something so wonderful to observe, so wonderful to behold; the pleasure for the observer, the beholder, is an invisible current between the two, observed and observer, beheld and beholder, and I believe that no life is complete, no life is really whole, without this invisible current, which is in many ways a definition of love.Jamaica Kincaid Old Age And Experience Sayings By Jamaica Kincaid: Observing any human being from infancy, seeing someone come into existence, like a new flower
The universe exists under a reign of eternal law, surpassing the imperfect laws of human government. Such orderliness, such domination by law, imply intelligent planning and purpose. Nothing happens of itself. Nowhere, in the age-old experience of man, has continued order been found except as the product of intelligent direction.John Andreas Widtsoe Old Age And Experience Sayings By John Andreas Widtsoe: The universe exists under a reign of eternal law, surpassing the imperfect laws of human
Your mind doesn't age much, Lexi. That's why you see all those eighty-year-old women acting silly. In their head, they're still young. Time doesn't change people, experience does. And sickness.Dannika Dark Old Age And Experience Sayings By Dannika Dark: Your mind doesn't age much, Lexi. That's why you see all those eighty-year-old women acting
The vaunted experience of age was perhaps only a matter of wounds and scarring
that young minds to old minds might be as young bodies to old bodies: stronger, more vital, less twisted by damage.
Kim Stanley Robinson Old Age And Experience Sayings By Kim Stanley Robinson: The vaunted experience of age was perhaps only a matter of wounds and scarring that
The fact of the matter is that young men lack skill and experience and are very likely to approach a girl as though she were a sack of wheat. It is the old man - suave, debonair, maturely charming - who knows exactly what to do and how to do it, and is therefore better at it.Isaac Asimov Old Age And Experience Sayings By Isaac Asimov: The fact of the matter is that young men lack skill and experience and are
Old men tend to forget what thought was like in their youth; they forget the quickness of the mental jump, the daring of the youthful intuition, the agility of the fresh insight. They become accustomed to the more plodding varieties of reason, and because this is more than made up by the accumulation of experience, old men think themselves wiser than the young.Isaac Asimov Old Age And Experience Sayings By Isaac Asimov: Old men tend to forget what thought was like in their youth; they forget the
Joanna, like her daughters, was neither old nor young, and yet their physical appearances corresponded to their particular talents. Depending on the situation, Freya could be anywhere from sixteen to twenty-three years of age, the first blush of Love, while Ingrid, keeper of the Hearth, looked and acted anywhere from twenty-seven to thirty-five; and since Wisdom came from experience, even if in her heart she might feel like a schoolgirl, Joanna's features were those of an older woman in her early sixties.Melissa De La Cruz Old Age And Experience Sayings By Melissa De La Cruz: Joanna, like her daughters, was neither old nor young, and yet their physical appearances corresponded
Almost all great painters in old age arrive at the same kind of broad, simplified style, as if they wanted to summarise the whole of their experience in a few strokes and blobs of colour.Kenneth Clark Old Age And Experience Sayings By Kenneth Clark: Almost all great painters in old age arrive at the same kind of broad, simplified
When he did think - when his brain began the slow chugging of rusty gears - the only thoughts that came were unspeakable things like, what's the worst age a child can die? Worse yet was - after hours spent staring at the ceiling until it became a real-life Escher print with fans on the floor, useless windowsills, and dresser drawers that spilled underwear when opened - worse yet was when his mind found answers to those questions. Two-years-old isn't so bad, he mused. They barely had a life. Twenty? At least they got to experience life! But fourteen ... fourteen was the worst.Jake Vander Ark Old Age And Experience Sayings By Jake Vander Ark: When he did think - when his brain began the slow chugging of rusty gears
And this is the strangest of all paradoxes of the human adventure; we live inside all experience, but we are permitted to bear witness only to the outside. Such is the riddle of life and the story of the passing of our days.Howard Thurman Old Age And Experience Sayings By Howard Thurman: And this is the strangest of all paradoxes of the human adventure; we live inside
We who are old know that age is more than a disability. It is an intense and varied experience, almost beyond our capacity at times, but something to be carried high.Florida Scott-Maxwell Old Age And Experience Sayings By Florida Scott-Maxwell: We who are old know that age is more than a disability. It is an
Poetry is related to philosophy as experience is related to empirical science. Experience makes us acquainted with the phenomenon in the particular and by means of examples, science embraces the whole of phenomena by means of general conceptions. So poetry seeks to make us acquainted with the Platonic Ideas through the particular and by means of examples. Philosophy aims at teaching, as a whole and in general, the inner nature of things which expresses itself in these. One sees even here that poetry bears more the character of youth, philosophy that of old age.Arthur Schopenhauer Old Age And Experience Sayings By Arthur Schopenhauer: Poetry is related to philosophy as experience is related to empirical science. Experience makes us
When I was 14-15 years old I was able to earn a little money from time to time but I'm not complaining since, very soon I could provide a normal living. I was discovered also by other musicians and they asked me to work with them. Even in my early age several well-known artists asked for my services both on the stage and in the studio. This experience proved to be very useful, musicians showed me various musical situations and various music experiments.Richard Clayderman Old Age And Experience Sayings By Richard Clayderman: When I was 14-15 years old I was able to earn a little money from
The antithetical or perhaps mirror image to sadness is the experience, similarly unique to one's late years, of a swift, mysterious wave of happiness, also causeless, but of much shorter duration. I cannot remember a time, before my sixties, when the consciousness of happiness would sweep over me and, like a shower of cold water when one is desperately overheated, offer me a passing sensation very close to glee.
Both sadness and fleeting happiness relate, I think, to mortality, to the consciousness of being old and of nearing the end of life ... these sensations ... surge up from the unconscious, to be a gift of long life or fortunate old age. Both sadness and happiness, but sadness more, are related to the fact that nothing of all this will endure for long. [p. 179]
Carolyn G. Heilbrun Old Age And Experience Sayings By Carolyn G. Heilbrun: The antithetical or perhaps mirror image to sadness is the experience, similarly unique to one's
The greatest mistake is to think that we ever know why we do things ... I suppose the nearest we can ever come to it is by getting what old people call 'experience.' But by the time we've got that we're no longer the persons who did the things we no longer understand. The trouble is, I suppose, that we change every moment; and the things we did stay.Edith Wharton Old Age And Experience Sayings By Edith Wharton: The greatest mistake is to think that we ever know why we do things ...
