Old age is winter, alas, for many people, but for those who are wise and optimistic, it is the happy and fruitful time of harvest.

So long as one continues to be amazed, one can delay growing old.

The entire life of a human being depends upon "Yes" and "No" uttered two or three times between the ages of sixteen and twenty five.

Old age arrives suddenly, as does the snow. One morning, on awakening, one realizes that everything is white.

It is by growing old that one learns to remain young.

If someone declares that he is able to do everything at sixty that he was able to do at twenty, then he was not doing very much when he was twenty.

Old age embellishes everything. It has the effect of the setting sun on the beautiful twilight of autumn.

As one grows old, one generally rids himself of his shortcoming's because they no longer serve any useful purpose.

There are four great periods in the life of a man; The one where he believes in Santa Claus, The one where he no longer believes in Santa Claus, The one where he is Santa Claus, and finally the one where he looks more and more like Santa Claus.

The good side of this, as old as one might be, is that one is always younger than he will ever be.

The person who considers himself too old to learn something has probably always been that way.

I truly hope that you find all your joy in the upcoming New Year. Isn't it wonderful...a completely brand new year...much like a clean do with as you choose. Make it the best year of your life...and fill it with love and joy and "pay it forward".

I think we're all as old as we feel, sometimes I feel as wise and old as Methuselah - then again as young as a bopping teenager (depending on the mood, hoooo boy!) but no matter, as long as we stay healthy for ever and a day!
Hostagirl, I want to wish you and your loved ones a very happy and healthy New Year!!!!

ginco has it right, and I will add, it seems it is our body which ages, and our minds are forever young.
happy New Year to you and JW
