Every season hath its pleasures:
Spring may boast her flowery prime,
Yet the vineyard’s ruby treasures
Brighten autumn’s soberer time.
So life’s year begins and closes;
Days, though shortening, still can shine;
What, though youth gave loves and roses,
Age still leaves us friends and wine….
Thus may we, as years are flying,
To their flight our pleasures suit,
Nor regret the blossoms dying,
While we still can taste the fruit.
– Thomas Moore

 

Age seldom arrives smoothly or quickly. It’s more often a succession of jerks. – Jean Rhys

OLD AGE WISDOM QUOTES

 

People always fancy that we must become old to become wise; but, in truth, as years advance, it is hard to keep ourselves as wise as we were. Man becomes, indeed, in the different stages of his life, a different being; but he cannot say that he is a better one, and, in certain matters, he is as likely to be right in his twentieth, as in his sixtieth year.

We see the world one way from a plain, another way from the heights of a promontory, another from the glacier fields of the primary mountains. We see, from one of those points, a larger piece of the world than from the other; but that is all, and we cannot say that we see more truly from any one than from the rest. When a writer leaves monuments on the different steps of his life, it is chiefly important that he should have an innate foundation and good‑will; that he should, at each step, have seen and felt clearly, and that, without any secondary aims, he should have said distinctly and truly what has passed in his mind. Then will his writings, if they were right at the step where they originated, remain always right, however the writer may develop or alter himself in the after times.– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

 

At another year
I would not boggle
Except that when I jog
I joggle.
– Ogden Nash

 

All diseases run into one, old age. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

 

Our best view of age is from a winter afternoon, between bare branches of the trees. – Terri Guillemets

 

Winter, which strips the leaves from around us, makes us see the distant regions they formerly concealed; so does old age rob us of our enjoyments, only to enlarge the prospect of eternity before us. – Jean Paul Friedrich Richter

 

My garden shall yet hang heavy with tardy bloom. I shall pluck the fig in its late ripeness. The sumac will crimson for me in the frost of the fall. I shall gather wild grapes in their empurpling, and come with wild hops torn from the tops of frost touched trees. I shall gather myself in great, ripe, yellow sheaves of me, in great clusters of maturity. – Muriel Strode

 

Some days my soul is windy,
blowing the dying leaves
off my aging bones.
My heart aches,
but it’s winter pains
nothing a little spring won’t cure…
– Terri Guillemets

 

Young twigs will bend, but not old trees. – Dutch Proverb

Why is it, that the soul looks back
On its once fair, now faded track,
When Youth and Hope, so fondly bright,
Would onward still direct its flight?
In Manhood’s more advancéd years,
We look on youth, and e’en its tears,
All fondly beaming on our gaze,
Seem bright thro’ intervening days.
Such joyous freshness hath that time,
So pure the sunshine of its clime,
That turning back, those days to hail,
Bright Fiction lends to Truth her veil,
And o’er each scene of care or woe
Its brighter tints will gently throw:
Thus sleeps on Midnight’s darker hue
The zone that girds her robe of blue.
– Robert Howe Gould

 

The arctic loneliness of age. – S. Weir Mitchell

 

And now,
Though haply mellow’d by correcting time,
I thank thee, Heaven! that the bereaving world
Hath not diminish’d the subliming hopes
Of youth, in manhood’s more imposing cares…..
– Robert Montgomery

 

One mellows almost without realizing it, a compensation of age, because anger is exhausting. – Robert Galbraith

Perhaps in some thin and far off fashion, he still hoped to find love some day; there had been moments haunted by a vision of himself seated cosily before a glowing hearth, and not alone; but somehow, as the years passed, that figure sitting there in slippered ease had grown older and older, grey haired, even a little stiff in the joints. – Burton E. Stevenson

 

Sometimes it takes years to really grasp what has happened to your life. – Wilma Rudolph

 

At night, her age landed hard
like the fall of wasted time.
– Terri Guillemets

 

Nathan's Tummy

Growing old is not a gradual decline, but a series of drops, full of sorrow, from one ledge to another below it. But when we pick ourselves up we find our bones are, after all, not broken; while level enough and not unpleasing is the new terrace which lies unexplored before us. – Logan Pearsall Smith

 

I can remember once, ere I was dead,
The sorrow and the prayer and bitter cry
When they who loved me stood around the bed,
Watching till I should die:
They need not so have grieved their souls for me,
Grouped statue, like to count my failing breath
Only one thought strove faintly, bitterly
With the kind drug of Death:
How once upon a time, unwept, unknown,
Unhelped by pitying sigh or murmured prayer,
My youth died in slow agony alone
With none to watch or care.
– Margaret Widdemer

 

When our vices desert us, we flatter ourselves that we are deserting our vices. – François VI de la Rochefoucault

We thought we were running away from the grown ups, and now we’re the grown ups. – Margaret Atwood

 

The discovery of a grey hair when you are brushing out your whiskers of a morning first fallen flake of the coming snows of age is a disagreeable thing…… So are flying twinges of gout, shortness of breath on the hill side, the fact that even the moderate use of your friend’s wines at dinner upsets you. These things are disagreeable because they tell you that you are no longer young that you have passed through youth, are now in middle age, and faring onward to the shadows in which, somewhere, a grave is hid. – Alexander Smith

 

There is a certain even handed justice in Time; and for what he takes away he gives us something in return. He robs us of elasticity of limb and spirit, and in its place he brings tranquility and repose the mild autumnal weather of the soul. – Alexander Smith

 

There is a slow growing beauty which only comes to perfection in old age…. I have seen sweeter smiles on a lip of seventy than I ever saw on a lip of seventeen. There is the beauty of youth, and there is also the beauty of holiness, a beauty much more seldom met; and more frequently found in the arm chair by the fire, with grandchildren around its knee, than in the ball room or the promenade. – Alexander Smith

 

And in any case, to the old man, when the world becomes trite, the triteness arises not so much from a cessation as from a transference of interest.

Erikson

 

Old age is a lot of crossed off names in an address book. – Ronald Blythe

 

But if thou wilt enjoy thy warm youth, not terrified by the ice pit of old age, which awaits thee in the background, and in which, under an ever increasing cold, thou wilt be preserved for a season, then look upon the glad today as a long youth, and upon the sad to‑morrow as a short old age. – Jean Paul Friedrich Richter

 

You know, when I first went into the movies Lionel Barrymore played my grandfather. Later he played my father and finally he played my husband. If he had lived I’m sure I would have played his mother. That’s the way it is in Hollywood. The men get younger and the women get older. – Lillian Gish

a seed, conceive
to sprout, we’re born
a leafy green new life
trunk and roots, further sunk
nourished, loved, great height
full, vibrant, ripe
moulting, colours, beauty

bare branches, skeleton buds
frost without a fight
repose, accept, goodbye

Young feelings from the heart!

Let me go sleep!
