The great secret that all old people share is that you really haven't changed in seventy or eighty years. Your body changes, but you don't change at all. And that, of course, causes great confusion.
Few people know how to be old.
By the year 2020, the year of perfect vision, the old will outnumber the young.
Old age is not a disease - it is strength and survivorship, triumph over all kinds of vicissitudes and disappointments, trials and illnesses.
Old age is an excellent time for outrage. My goal is to say or do at least one outrageous thing every week.
Speak your mind, even though your voice shakes.
Stand before the people you fear and speak your mind - even if your voice shakes.
There must be a goal at every stage of life! There must be a goal!
Power should not be concentrated in the hands of so few, and powerlessness in the hands of so many.
