Este é um assunto que me interessa cada vez mais, quanto o tempo que me resta é cada vez menos.
Seleccionei estas citações das que se encontram no "Brain Candy Quotations". Escolhi-as por me serem verdadeiras e por apontarem para muitas direcções... no fundo, "old age is always an unfinished business" (e esta citação é minha)!
Old age is no place for sissies. (Bette Davis)
Perhaps being old is having lighted rooms inside your head, and people in them, acting. People you know, yet can't quite name. (Philip Larkin)
At age fifty, every man has the face he deserves. (George Orwell)
We do not count a man's years until he has nothing else to count. (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting out ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. (Samuel Ullman)
Age is a question of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter. (Satchel Paige)
How old would you be if you didn't know how old you was? (Satchel Paige)
Like our shadows,
Our wishes lengthen as our sun declines. (Edward Young “Night Thoughts”)
E agora, a música com Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Roy Orbison, Tom Petty e Jeff Lynne, ou seja, The Traveling Wilburys!
Well it's all right, riding around in the breeze
Well it's all right, if you live the life you please
Well it's all right, even if the sun dont shine
Well it's all right, we're going to the end of the line!
