50 Aging Quotes from Literature

"Age leaves us only one feeling,—contempt!" ~ Paul Clifford by Edward Bulwer-Lytton "Kindness and intelligence are the preoccupations of age. Being cruel and thoughtless is far more fascinating when you're twenty." ~ Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury "Old men only lie in wait for people to ask them to talk. Then they rattle on like a rusty elevator wheezing up a shaft." ~ Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury The first thing you learn in life is you're a fool. The last thing you learn in life is you're the same fool. ~ Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury "I don't think, sir, you have a right to command me, merely because you are older than I, or because you have seen more of the world than I have; your claim to superiority depends on the use you have made of your time and experience." ~ Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte Late hours, nocturnal cigars, and midnight drinkings, pleasurable though they may be, consume too quickly the free-flowing lamps of youth, and are fatal at once to the husbanded candle-ends of age. ~ Phineas Redux by Anthony Trollope Then he would be penniless, with the world before him as a closed oyster to be again opened, and he knew,-no one better,-that this oyster becomes harder and harder in the opening as the man who has to open it becomes older. ~ Phineas Redux by Anthony Trollope In former days the Earl had been a man quite capable of making himself disagreeable, and probably had not yet lost the power of doing so. Of all our capabilities this is the one which clings longest to us. ~ Phineas Redux by Anthony Trollope Men live their lives trapped in an eternal present, between the mists of memory and the sea of shadow that is all we know of the days to come. ~ A Dance with Dragons by George R. R. Martin Every man should lose a battle in his youth, so he does not lose a war when he is old. ~ A Feast for Crows by George R. R. Martin
