Age has a keyHole

I`ll shoot my age if I have to live to be 105.

An hour with your grandchildren can make you feel young again. Anything longer than that, and you start to age quickly.

Every age has a keyhole to which its eye is pasted.

History is the record of what one age finds worthy of note in another.

By the age of 18, the average American has witnessed 200,000 acts of violence on television, most of them occurring during Game 1 of the NHL playoff series.

Nobody knows the age of the human race, but everybody agrees that it is old enough to know better.

In the age of acorns, before the times of Ceres, a single barley-corn had been of more value to mankind than all the diamonds of the mines of India.

There is a certain age at which a child looks at you in all earnestness and delivers a long, pleased speech in all the true inflections of spoken English, but with not one recognizable syllable.

An age is called "dark," not because the light fails to shine but because people refuse to see it.

I will lift mine eyes unto the pills. Almost everyone takes them, from the humble aspirin to the multi-coloured, king-sized three deckers, which put you to sleep, wake you up, stimulate and soothe you all in one. It is an age of pills.

Women are the right age for just a few years; men, for most of their lives.

Good friends are like quilts - they age with you yet never lose their warmth.

Children are a great comfort in your old age - and they help you reach it faster, too.

I find in old age that it`s possible to revisit the past, the one requirement being that you come as you are.

If in this present age we were to go back to the old time of "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth," there would be very few hon. gentlemen in this House who would not, metaphorically speaking, be blind and toothless.

The charm of history and its enigmatic lesson consist in the fact that, from age to age, nothing changes and yet everything is completely different.
