March 19, 1967

Such a good date :D The world was blessed with me on that day. What more could you want. Several people asked me how old I turned today, and I told them 29 with 13 years experience.
Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional.
You're only as old as you feel.

Abraham Lincoln:

And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.

Albert Einstein:

People like you and I, though mortal of course like everyone else, do not grow old no matter how long we live...[We] never cease to stand like curious children before the great mystery into which we were born. letter to Otto Juliusburger

Harriet Beecher Stowe:

So much has been said and sung of beautiful young girls, why don't somebody wake up to the beauty of old women?

Henry David Thoreau:

None are so old as those who have outlived enthusiasm.
