Water-colours of Marcel Reynaert

Getting older is the only way to live long.

The age of maturity is that age at which one is still young but is much more resourceful.

What most torments me about the foolishness of my youth, is not the crazy things I have done...but the fact that I can’t go back and do them again.

To get old is to go from passion to compassion.

Many people never reach eighty because they waste time trying to stay at forty forever.

At twenty, desire rules, at thirty, reason rules, and at forty, it’s time for good sense and judgement.

Whoever is not beautiful at twenty, strong at thirty, rich at forty, nor wise at fifty, will never be beautiful or strong or rich or wise.

When we pass sixty, there are fewer things that we think are absurd.

Young people think the old are ridiculous. The old know that the young are ridiculous.

A mature person goes back to find the serenity once enjoyed as a child

Nothing passes by as quickly as the years.

When I was young I was told “You’ll see when you’re fifty”. I’ve passed fifty but I don’t see anything .

In the eyes of youth there burns a flame. In the eyes of the old there shines a light.

The initiative of youth and the experience of the older each have equal value.

There is a small child inside each one of us.

Each age calls for it’s own appropriate behavior.

Young people travel in groups, adults travel in pairs, and old people walk alone.

Happy the one who was young as a youth, and happy the one who is wise in old age.

We all want to grow old, and we all want to deny we have arrived there.

WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND ABOUT THE PASSING YEARS - HOW TO LIVE THEM, AND NOT JUST ACCUMULATE THEM,

Musica: Roger Williams
