A man is not old until his regrets take the place of his dreams.
John Barrymore, “Good Night, Sweet Prince” 1943
Said the little boy, “Sometimes I drop my spoon.”
Said the old man, “I do that too.”
The little boy whispered, “I wet my pants.”
“I do that too,” laughed the old man.
Said the little boy, “I often cry.”
The old man nodded, “So do I.”
“But worst of all, said the boy, it seems
Grown-ups don’t pay attention to me.”
And he felt the warmth of a wrinkled old hand.
“I know what you mean,” said the old man.
The old believe everything, the middle-aged suspect everything, the young know everything.
A man sees in the world what he carries in his heart.
– Johann Wolfgang Goethe, from “Faust”
Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get – only with what you are expecting to give….which is everything.

God gave women intuition and femininity. Used properly, the combination easily jumbles the brain of any man I’ve ever met.

Older people shouldn’t eat health food…they need all the preservatives they can get.

You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late.
