This is emphatically an age of discoveries; but I will venture the assertion, that none but an American slaveholder could have discovered that a man born in a country was not a citizen of it.
William Winters quotes
In this age of innovation, perhaps no experiment will have an influence more important on the character and happiness of our society than the granting to females the advantages of a systematic and thorough education.
Sarah J. Hale quotes
The age looks steadily to the redressing of wrong, to the righting of every form of error and injustice; and a tireless and prying philanthropy, which is almost omniscient, is one of the most hopeful characteristics of the time.
Mary Baker Eddy quotes
Old age is the verdict of life.
Amelia E. Barr quotes
Nothing is inherently and invincibly young except spirit. And spirit can enter a human being perhaps better in the quiet of old age and dwell there more undisturbed than in the turmoil of adventure.
George Santayana quotes
Age, like distance, lends a double charm.
Oliver Wendell Holmes quotes
Old age hath yet his honor and his toil. Death closes all; but something ere the end, Some work of noble note, may yet be done, Not unbecoming men that strove with Gods.
Alfred, Lord Tennyson quotes
Youth is the time of getting, middle age of improving, and old age of spending.
Anne Bradstreet quotes
One hour of right-down love is worth an age of dully living on.
Aphra Behn quotes
To me, old age is always 15 years older than I am.
Bernard M. Baruch quotes
