“Aging is not 'lost youth' but a new stage of opportunity and strength.”
Betty Friedan

Jenny Joseph
“When I am an old woman I shall wear purple. With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.”
Jenny Joseph, Warning: When I am an Old Woman I Shall Wear Purple

Emily Brontë
“Lines

I die but when the grave shall press
The heart so long endeared to thee
When earthy cares no more distress
And earthy joys are nought to me.

Weep not, but think that I have past
Before thee o'er the sea of gloom.
Have anchored safe and rest at last
Where tears and mouring can not come.

'Tis I should weep to leave thee here
On that dark ocean sailing drear
With storms around and fears before
And no kind light to point the shore.

But long or short though life may be
'Tis nothing to eternity.
We part below to meet on high
Where blissful ages never die.”
Emily Bronte

Michel de Montaigne
“The most certain sign of wisdom is cheerfulness. ”
Michel de Montaigne

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love.”
