A.W. Tozer
“Sometimes I go to God and say, "God, if Thou dost never answer another prayer while I live on this earth, I will still worship Thee as long as I live and in the ages to come for what Thou hast done already. God’s already put me so far in debt that if I were to live one million millenniums I couldn’t pay Him for what He’s done for me.”
A.W. Tozer

Sanhita Baruah
“It's been 12 years now, and I think he still can read my smiles. The way my lips stretch, making my eyes look smaller than they already are. The way my cheeks turn a little red, forming new wrinkles near my eyes. The way the dimple on my face makes a visit whenever I smile meeting someone I haven't seen in ages.
It's been 12 years now, and I haven't smiled at him even once.”
Sanhita Baruah

Peter S. Beagle

"No, but I wonder if any man before us ever thought his time a good time for unicorns.”
Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

Philip Pullman
“Ruta Skadi was four hundred and sixteen years old, with all the pride and knowledge of an adult witch queen. She was wiser by far than any short-lived human, but she had not the slightest idea of how like a child she seemed beside these ancient beings. Nor did she know how far their awareness spread out beyond her like filamentary tentacles to the remotest corners of universes she had never dreamed of; nor that she saw them as human-formed only because her eyes expected to. If she were to perceive their true form, they would seem more like architecture than organism, like huge structures composed of intelligence and feeling.

But they expected nothing else: she was very young.”
Philip Pullman, The Subtle Knife

“She shall be my queen, and I her most ardent admirer and protector. A new standard of love shall be established for the ages. Time will clarify my devotion! On this I would gladly stake my very soul!”
Brandon Mull, Grip of the Shadow Plague

Fyodor Dostoevsky
“...The men of those days...were absolutely not the same people that we are now; it was not the same race as now, in our age, really, it seems we are a different species...In those days they were men of one idea, but now we are more nervous, more developed, more sensitive; men capable of two or three ideas at once...Modern men are broader-minded - and I swear that this prevents their being so all-of-a-piece as they were in those days.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Idiot

Ludwig Wittgenstein
“One age misunderstands another; and a petty age misunderstands all the others in its own nasty way.”

“Live every single day doing something relevant; single days sum up to make great ages!”

Laurence Overmire
“Our stories make us who we are. And each story has its own purpose and its own reward. Each story rings true and each story is worthy of the ages. There is no such thing as an insignificant life.”
Laurence Overmire, New York Minute: An Actor's Memoir

Rixa White
“Look at me
I am the life in a wasteland

Look at me
I am the slavery through the ages

Look at me
I am the mirror of the world

Look at me
I am the illusion I’ve fought for

Look at me
I’m still loving you

and I keep being here

for you, for me,
and for what’s worth breathing”
Rixa White

Criss Jami
“The foundation of morality on the human sentiments of what is acceptable behavior versus repulsive behavior has always made morals susceptible to change. Much of what was repulsive 100 years ago is normal today, and - although it may be a slippery slope - what is repulsive today is possible to be normal 100 years into tomorrow; the human standard has always been but to push the envelope. In this way, all generations are linked, and one can only hope that every extremist, self-proclaimed progressive is considering this ultimate 'Utopia' to which his kindness will lead at the end of the chain.”
Criss Jami, Healology

Flannery O'Connor
“From 15 to 18 is an age at which one is very sensitive to the sins of others, as I know from recollections of myself. At that age you don’t look for what is hidden. It is a sign of maturity not to be scandalized and to try to find explanations in charity.”
Flannery O'Connor, The Habit of Being: Letters of Flannery O'Connor

William Blake
“To create a little flower is the labor of ages.”
William Blake, The Complete Poetry and Prose

Asa Don Brown
“Drugs and addiction impact all classes, genders, ages, and races.”

“During the infinite distance
between your center and my perimeter;
I feel, a continuous river of faith
flowing for ages.”

“Quando ti ho visto la prima volta, mi sono detto: Dio mi ha fatto uno scherzo di cattivo gusto. Finalmente avevo trovato qualcuno da amare senza restrizioni, ma era un ragazzino.
Poi però ci siamo conosciuti e amati”
Vd PRIN, Leandro et Marc, mon chemin jusqu'à toi

Anna Gavalda
“At the age of six, I was seized by the mania of drawing the shape of objects.
By the age of fifty, I had published an infinite number of drawings, but everything produced before the age of seventy is not worthy of consideration.
It was at the age of sixty-three that I gradually began to understand the structure of true nature, of animals, trees, birds and insects.
As a result, by the age of eighty, I will penetrate into the mystery of things; at one hundred I will have attained a degree of wonder and by the time I am one hundred and ten, whether I create a point or a line, everything will be alive.
I ask those who live as long as I do to see if I keep my word.
Written at the age of seventy-five by me, Hokusai, the old man mad about painting.”
Anna Gavalda, Hunting and Gathering

“Let your heart be young forever... Life is beautiful in all ages”
