Father Time is not always a hard parent, and, though he tarries for none of his children, often lays his hand lightly upon those who have used him well  —  making them old men and women inexorably enough, but leaving their hearts and spirits young and in full vigor.

It is the nature of a man as he grows older, a small bridge in time, to protest against change, particularly change for the better.  But it is true that we have exchanged corpulence for starvation, and either one will kill us.
   ―  John Steinbeck
From his book:  “Travels with Charley: In Search of America

At age 20, we worry about what others think of us.  At 40, we don’t care what they think of us.  At 60, we discover they haven’t been thinking of us at all.

[Happy Birthday, Bro! We aren’t really getting old, but I believe we’ve forgotten most of what we used to know for sure.  I suspect those wrinkles are just where all the smiles and laughter were.  And, there are a lot more (wrinkles AND laughter) to come…   Love ya  —  KMAB]

Four Score

At eighty, a man has experienced everything: love, and its ending; ambition, and its emptiness; several foolish beliefs, and their rectification.  Fear of death is not very great; affections and interest concern people who have died and events of the past.  In a cinema theatre when the show is continuous the spectator has the right to retain his seat as long as he wishes to do so, but actually, when the scenes he has already witnessed reappear on the screen, he leaves the theatre.  Life is a continuous show.  The same events take place every thirty years, and they become boring.  One after another the spectators take their departure.
    —  André Maurois
