I definitely used to lie about my age. I'm from Tennessee and everyone would vacation in Destin, Florida, where there are lots of cute guys. I would go with my older sister and lie about my age to them. Lucy Hale
I came to the age, at 20, that is hard to transfer to an adult. I had a good list of credits, but it's just hard. So I went out for parts when there were some, and I traveled a little, had some fun, and then met my husband. Suzanne Crough
By the time I was twenty-three, I'd given up any thought of becoming a fiction writer, and I didn't return to the craft for over two decades. But, at the age of forty-five, return I did. Eric Flint
I wrote 'The Match,' my cricket novel, between 2002 and 2005. In retrospect, almost an age of innocence in cricket and a time when it was rare to find the game deep in fiction. Romesh Gunesekera
But I think it's a little different in Europe, because 40 is really the best age for a woman. That's when we hit our peak and become this ripe fruit. Juliette Binoche
At the age of 80, I'm becoming a visual artist. This could be my rebirth. Harry Seidler
For me, the end of childhood came when the number of candles on my birthday cake no longer reflected my age, around 19 or 20. From then on, each candle came to represent an entire decade. Yotam Ottolenghi
In 1964, at the age of 39, Flannery O'Connor died from complications of lupus. She had lived with this autoimmune disease for 14 years, primarily confined to her mother's farm, Andalusia, in Milledgeville, Ga. Floyd Skloot
Age for me is just a number. Haile Gebrselassie
If every American automatically has health coverage, the age at which Medicare kicks in becomes a less fraught issue. We could gradually raise the age of Medicare eligibility a bit, according to income, and save money. Joe Klein
I think it's pretty crazy to say you've been typecast at the age of 20 before you've even really started getting going. Tom Felton
I completed the first three years of primary school in one year and was admitted to the local school the age of six directly into the fourth year, some two years younger than all my contemporaries. Sydney Brenner
Growing up on stage, I was introduced to makeup at a young age and I will never forget the first time I tried on a L'Oreal Paris iconic lipstick - it was instant glamour and I've been hooked ever since. Lea Michele
I've had friends whose boyfriends I meet, then they break up and I end up staying buddies with the boyfriend. In this day and age with social media and Facebook, Twitter, it's really impossible to escape people that you've been involved with. In a weird way, it makes it easier for everyone to stay friends because you're just sort of stuck there. Zachary Knighton
Losing both parents at a young age gave me a sense that you can't really control life - so you'd better live it while it's here. I stopped believing in a storybook existence a long time ago. All you can do is push in a direction and see what comes of it. Jon Hamm
If I could have gotten my way at an early age, I would have entered the priesthood, but my mother informed me that I could not become a priest because I was a girl. It really was the biggest blow to my ego, because it was my calling. When she told me I'd have to be a nun, I looked at her and said, 'I'm not following anyone.' Donna Brazile
Every age yearns for a more beautiful world. The deeper the desperation and the depression about the confusing present, the more intense that yearning. Johan Huizinga
I had the acting bug from a very early age. James Norton
I am trying to write stuff that is different. I am a big science fan. I read a lot of science, and 'Wonderland' has a lot of science in it. I don't know. They are hard to describe... We are living in a wonderland age of science. Bob Seger
In the war, most young men were inducted into the armed forces at the age of 17. A group of students was permitted to attend university before taking part in wartime research projects. John Pople

Lord save us all from old age and broken health and a hope tree that has lost the faculty of putting out blossoms. Mark Twain
Nobody expects to trust his body overmuch after the age of fifty. Alexander Hamilton
When I was 5 years old, hanging out with my friends who were all older than me, like 8 or 9, I was joking around like, 'Yeah, when I'm 20 that's a perfect age to go pro.' That's what I had in my head. Then I turn pro at 13. It's all been a mystery and its all been awesome. Ryan Sheckler
I didn't decide to become a musician until the age of 15, which is quite late. Evelyn Glennie
I discovered at an early age that all I've ever wanted to do is design. Jonathan Ive
I was always fast; I was always racing guys that were older than me and beating them, so I always had speed. I was able to make good cuts at a young age, on the side of the house with my dad, going through different plays, working on cuts and stuff like that. Adrian Peterson
I don't want to fight aging; I want to take good care of myself, but plastic surgery and all that? I'm not interested. Christine Lahti
I was in Paris, Milan and London from '89 until '91, and I did mostly runway modeling. I know there's so many people out there looking for pictures, but this was way before the age of the Internet, sorry! Carla Hall
When I write about a 15-year old, I jump, I return to the days when I was that age. It's like a time machine. I can remember everything. I can feel the wind. I can smell the air. Very actually. Very vividly. Haruki Murakami
Before there were any sort of 'recordings' there was performance. If we are devolved back to the Stone Age tomorrow, there will be performance. Todd Rundgren
Anybody under the age of forty knows hip-hop, gospel and R&B pretty well, and it's all a part of what we consider to be 'black music.' There is a natural synergy between the three. John Legend
I want to be age appropriate. I don't want to be that girl you see walking away and she looks 25 and then she turns around and she looks 90. Stevie Nicks
Under the Assads, Kurds were forbidden from learning their own language at school, or even from speaking it in the military. The result is a generation of Syrian Kurds, many now in late middle age, who can't write their own language. Luke Harding
Middle age is when you're sitting at home on a Saturday night and the telephone rings and you hope it isn't for you. Ogden Nash
Anyone who has lost a child will tell you that they don't recover their sense of endless possibility. Some people hide that well. But after a certain age, almost everyone is carrying something like that around, I suppose. Edward Hirsch
I think you have to be a little bit strict. You can't be friend and their parent in a lot of situations, especially in this day and age where it's so dangerous for kids. So there's a bit of sternness, I guess, in the way I raise my kids. Tim McGraw
Old age is the most unexpected of all the things that can happen to a man. James Thurber
Science goes from question to question; big questions, and little, tentative answers. The questions as they age grow ever broader, the answers are seen to be more limited. George Wald
In every generation, there are horrors that define an age and events that scar the global conscience. Douglas Alexander
But I've always believed that Christine Cagney shouldn't be played past a certain age. Sharon Gless
People have always told me I look young for my age... and I think it's because I've always taken care of myself. Ian Ziering
I grew up in the '70s and '80s, at a time that I'd argue was the absolute golden age of American popular culture. Because not only did we have all of the fantastic new stuff in print and on screens, but we had a constant supply of everything that came before, as well. Chris Roberson
My sister and I shared a bedroom our entire lives and I believe she discovered the Beatles when she was about 11 and I'm four years younger. So from the age of 7 until 17 we had nothing but Beatles paraphernalia in our room, even those little stuffed Beatles that went on stands that are dressed as the Sgt. Pepper band. Christina Ricci
I definitely had a very religious upbringing. My father was just instilling good morals into us at a very young age, and it wasn't super-strict, but it was a loving, warm household. Aaron Paul
I was a visual artist primarily and a writer, even from a very young age. P. J. Harvey
No matter where you are, the root of you is designed from a young age. So if my confidence was taken as a child, you can gain back a lot of the confidence, but that root of the cavity will still be there. Russell Peters
Growing old is no more than a bad habit which a busy person has no time to form. Andre Maurois
Time has changed and now is the age of spending. Zhang Yimou
If children are not introduced to music at an early age, I believe something fundamental is actually being taken from them. Luciano Pavarotti
Where nothing in a person's earlier years lends itself to an old age devoted to continuing intellectual and physical pursuits, a late-life interest in Tolstoy or even crossword puzzles is unlikely to appear, no matter the urging by well-intentioned social workers or people like me who write books about it. Sherwin B. Nuland
It is unthinkable for a Frenchman to arrive at middle age without having syphilis and the Cross of the Legion of Honor. Andre Gide
I can't hit on women in public any more. I didn't decide this; it just doesn't feel right at my age. Jack Nicholson
I think we live in an age of increasing mediocrity. Dick Cavett
I've watched my peers get better with age and hoped that would happen with me. Bonnie Raitt
My dad had premature gray. I was always the one with the most energy, the one who continued to practice longer. I ran up and down the stairs of different stadiums. I didn't feel the need to cover up the fact that I was losing my hair or it was graying. When you're on a team, age is only a factor when you're talking in the locker room. Cal Ripken, Jr.
I can remember back as far as age 8, performing with the Boston Folk Song Society. It was a Woody Guthrie song. Frank Black
I always designed clothes from a very young age because I didn't like the way they were. They were paralyzing; they were stilted. Mary Quant
One industrial age belief is that GDP or GNP is a measure of progress. I don't care if you're the President of China or the U.S., if your country doesn't grow, you're in trouble. But we all know that beyond a certain level of material need, further material acquisition doesn't make people happier. Peter Senge
To be happy, we must be true to nature and carry our age along with us. William Hazlitt
I think all writers of my age who are brought up on films probably by the age of 16 have seen many more films than they have read classics of literature. We can't help but be influenced by film. Film has got some great tricks that it's taught writers. David Mitchell
I feel like it's important, especially at young age, to find exactly what it is that makes your style so important as opposed to just trying to fit into the iconic styles of performers out there. Jennifer Damiano
Age does not protect you from love. But love, to some extent, protects you from age. Anais Nin
In my old age, it's kind of funny - at night, what I like to do is watch TV when I go to sleep. And what I really like is to put on a Gene Autry film, because he sings really well. So he sings me to sleep. Phil Everly
My dad was always super-active and got me in the gym at a young age. He wanted me to be health-conscious. 'Healthy body, healthy mind'; that's what he preached to me. Scott Eastwood
When eventually I started to act a bit more, I realised that circus school had taught me something that a lot of actors my age didn't have: physicality. They didn't know how to move. Acting is not all about talking. There is something animalistic about it. Vincent Cassel
If the limit of age 80 is at the summit of Mt Everest, the highest place on Earth, one can never be happier. Yuichiro Miura
Old age is far more than white hair, wrinkles, the feeling that it is too late and the game finished, that the stage belongs to the rising generations. The true evil is not the weakening of the body, but the indifference of the soul. Andre Maurois
Why should it matter to us when wrestlers are found dead in their beds or seen limping around on two fake hips? Why should it matter to us that there's a list of modern wrestlers who died before the age of 50 - many of them famous - and that the list is more than 70 names long? Hey, there's always another wave of guys on the way. Always. Bill Simmons
I wear clothes that most people in the Midwest would probably deem inappropriate at my age. And I rock a bikini all summer long. I know that it's not normal, but I just don't care. I live once. Liz Phair
It's also very painful, because I feel, and I know, probably all women my age and older feel like we're better and have more to give and are more fun now. Barbara Hershey
Youth, what man's age is like to be, doth show; We may our ends by our beginnings know. John Denham
When you're at a certain point in your time - age, that is, when you're older - you start to realize that, actually, what you leave behind you does count, and so you start to become fundamentally aware of your own destiny, which sounds very grand. It's not grand at all, actually. Ridley Scott
There was a period which I refer to as the 'Golden Age of Jazz,' which sort of encompasses the middle Thirties through the Sixties, we had a lot of great innovators, all creating things which will last the world for a long, long time. Sonny Rollins
My own writing has perhaps more of an American flavor than a British one, but that's because the stories I've so far written have needed it. 'Empire State,' 'Seven Wonders' and 'The Age Atomic' are all very place-centric, where the setting itself is almost a character. But there is a universality to story that isn't just limited to science fiction. Adam Christopher
Italian men age very well. That's what I've learned from Tony Danza. Alyssa Milano
I grew up with art from the innocent age of ten - with art, but with no sense of identity. John Lone
I would go out with women my age, but there are no women my age. George Burns
I had used eclectic therapy and behavior therapy on myself at the age of 19 to get over my fear of public speaking and of approaching young women in public. Albert Ellis
Especially now, with 'Glee,' it's allowed a lot of kids to love music and performing at a young age. All ages watched 'American Idol,' but I think it was nice to be able to show kids, 'Hey, you can be here, too.' David Archuleta
I have two cousins with juvenile diabetes. They both contracted the disease before the age of 5, and it was so heartbreaking watching them go through daily blood tests and injections. It is such a difficult disease to live with and requires constant attention; a tough thing to explain to a child. Amy Robach
I was a product of a divorced family and I used humor as a weapon to combat sadness. I used comedy to make my mother laugh in light of the darkness that she faced, and to me it became a very powerful tool at a very young age, at six. I saw how therapeutic it could be. Josh Gad
Age, style, where you come from, where you were born, it's different every time, which, to me, is refreshing because it says that there isn't any one thing, one formula or kind of character that makes a great comedian. Everybody has had a different approach. Alan King
I never felt totally, 100%, patriotically English... I'd seen a lot of the world by an early age - sort of spent a lot of time traveling around Lebanon and I'd seen Babylon, and Damascus, and all sorts of places in the Middle East by the time I was ten. Then we'd return to Ruslip in West London... Done a fair bit of traveling really. Andy Serkis
I do intelligent roles. I don't want to be labeled as doing silly movies. I'm more mature than kids my age because I'm constantly surrounded by adults. Mischa Barton
I have a fear of poverty in old age. I have this vision of myself living in a skip and eating cat food. It's because I'm freelance, and I've never had a proper job. I don't have a pension, and my savings are dwindling. I always thought someone would just come along and look after me. Jenny Eclair
I'm not a New Age person, but I do believe in meditation, and for that reason I've always liked the Buddhist religion. When I've been to Japan, I've been to Buddhist temples and meditated, and I found that rewarding. Clint Eastwood
I've been dancing since the age of two. I don't really remember it, because I was little, but my mom signed me up and would put me in cute costumes. A lot of little girls get into dancing, but I loved it so much that I kept doing it. Maddie Ziegler
I'm 20 years old. I like to party as much as anyone my age. Going clubbing is my way of relaxing or releasing a lot of stress. I don't feel that I should have to justify that part of my life. I don't know that I'm necessarily an addict. Lindsay Lohan
From a scientific perspective there is some indication that a nuclear war could deplete the earth's ozone layer or, less likely, could bring on a new Ice Age - but there is no suggestion that either the created order or mankind would be destroyed in the process. Herman Kahn
People sometimes announce that we have entered 'the information age' as if information did not exist in other times. I think that every age was an age of information, each in its own way and according to the available media. Robert Darnton
When I was a kid, my step dad started this business and would go out and get lost cows and stuff. He was part-time truck driver, farmer and cowboy. He taught me how to ride from an early age. Tim McGraw
The pleasure of one's effect on other people still exists in age - what's called making a hit. But the hit is much rarer and made of different stuff. Enid Bagnold
Unwarranted search and seizure by the government officials was unacceptable to the American revolutionaries. Shouldn't it be unacceptable in the digital age, too? Heather Brooke
I think, at the end of the day, age is just a number. It's like, in real life, I've got friends who are dating someone their age or dating someone who's twice their age, and they're equally in love. Margot Robbie
Privacy is one of the biggest problems in this new electronic age. Andy Grove
You start getting hit with some very interesting situations in life - you as a parent - when they approach that teenage area, which is frightening because you still have memories of that age and the things you were doing at that age... Please don't do what I did. Johnny Depp
I came to America at the age of 17 as an exchange student, and a year later, I was a student at Dartmouth. I would say that the rather weak foundation of my Christianity was effectively battered at Dartmouth. I've had mostly a secular career. But I became intellectually interested in Christianity again in my mid-30s. Dinesh D'Souza
You know, I'm gay and I grew up being aware of that at a very early age, in a fairly repressed family. Alan Ball
When I was a young boy, I preferred cats to dogs. From the age of seven or eight onwards I just felt more comfortable with cats. And I felt more comfortable with girls, I didn't really like hanging out with guys. When I was about ten or eleven, I was friendlier with the girls in my school than with the guys. Ian Anderson
I can understand why those bands do it. It can be a hell of a lot of bloody fun. People are allowed to have a bit of fun after the age of 40, and a lot of them do need the money. Nik Kershaw
In this time of budget cuts, we cannot forget that basic science is a building block for scientific innovation and economic growth in the information age. Tim Bishop
We tried not to age, but time had its rage. Pete Townshend
What I think a psychic is, unfortunately, I think in this day and age, it's taken on sort of a rancid sound. Sylvia Browne
Whoever, fleeing marriage and the sorrows that women cause, does not wish to wed comes to a deadly old age. Hesiod
I'd got to that age when I was out on a date with a guy and I would be thinking: Don't mention your age, don't mention that you want a child - because they would just run out the door. Denise Van Outen
What's a dancer's worst enemy? Sometimes it's age, but sometimes it's the dancer themselves. Karen Kain
Better pass boldly into that other world, in the full glory of some passion, than fade and wither dismally with age. James Joyce
Women would be disproportionately affected by the privatization of social security. It is one of the most important safety nets for American women in old age, or in times of disability, to insure financial income for their families. Barbara Mikulski
You are as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fears; as young as your hope, as old as your despair. Samuel Ullman
I, at the age of 17 or 18 as a medical student, suddenly came up against a problem: 'What am I? What is the meaning of my existence as I experience it?' John Eccles
In every age 'the good old days' were a myth. No one ever thought they were good at the time. For every age has consisted of crises that seemed intolerable to the people who lived through them. Brooks Atkinson
It's not like I'm some kind of veteran and there is this huge age gap. I identify with them more off the field. I need to set an example, which is great, and I look forward to doing just that. Barry Zito
In the 1970s, many intellectuals had become political radicals. Marxism was correct, liberalism was for wimps, and Marx had pronounced that 'the ruling ideas of each age have ever been the ideas of its ruling class.' Steven Pinker
As a kid, I was always mistaken for a girl. Before you reach that age where your sexuality starts to display itself, kids can look very androgynous, and I guess I leaned more toward the feminine. All those things were very hard, growing up, because you're trying to create an identity, and you're feeling shameful about the one that you're making. Matt Reeves
Many of the people I work with that are half my age complain that they feel tired all the time. I tell them: 'Look at what you're eating, how much you are exercising, and how much sleep you are getting.' David H. Murdock
The existence is a tremendous curiosity, with in the course of the years, the discovery of yourself in your inmost evolutions. With the age you feel better than you are, what you represent. Which means a little at the planet's scale. Jacky Ickx
Dressing up is a bore. At a certain age, you decorate yourself to attract the opposite sex, and at a certain age, I did that. But I'm past that age. Katharine Hepburn
This is the strange thing: Dancers don't age. Twyla Tharp
Basketball has consumed me since the age of 7 or 8. I don't know what I would do without it. Rick Pitino
My great-great-grandfather lived to age 28, my immigrant great-grandfather Pedro Gotiaoco died at 66, my grandfather was 68, and my father died at 34. John Gokongwei
The most important thing in convoluted families, I learnt as I wrote, is that the child feels loved. I knew from a young age that I was a problem which required constant solving; but I never felt unloved. I was lucky. Allegra Huston
The great book for you is the book that has the most to say to you at the moment when you are reading. I do not mean the book that is most instructive, but the book that feeds your spirit. And that depends on your age, your experience, your psychological and spiritual need. Robertson Davies
That means that every human being - without distinction of sex, age, race, skin color, language, religion, political view, or national or social origin - possesses an inalienable and untouchable dignity. Hans Kung
To be a minister means above all to become powerless, or in more precise terms, to speak with our powerlessness to the condition of powerlessness which is so keenly felt but so seldom expressed by the people of our age. Henri Nouwen
My father... removed from Kentucky to... Indiana, in my eighth year... It was a wild region, with many bears and other wild animals still in the woods. There I grew up... Of course when I came of age, I did not know much. Still somehow, I could read, write, and cipher... but that was all. Abraham Lincoln
I grew up in the age of polyester. When I got to touch real silk, cotton and velvet, the feel of nonsynthetic fabrics blew me away. I know it's important how clothing looks, but it's equally important how it feels on your skin. Colleen Atwood
Being confident is the key to life. Don't be afraid to be you! I'm super different from a lot of kids my age with style and personality, and I'm OK with it. And if you are OK with it, everyone else will be, too. Just be yourself. Leo Howard
As I age, I become more and more happy with what I see in the mirror. At some point, that's going to stop. Natalie Zea
Age considers; youth ventures. Rabindranath Tagore
Kenya, being a third world country, from a young age your eyes are open to the real world. I'd like to think growing up there taught me to stand on my own two feet, make my own decisions about what I wanted to be. Chris Froome
There was a point when comics were considered to be mainly of interest to kids, and it was decided that kids could relate more to someone their own age than an adult. So suddenly all these previously grownup comics were lousy with sidekicks: Aquagirl, Aqualad, Robin, Kid Flash, Speedy, Stripesy... the list goes on. J. Michael Straczynski
You never see a child die from education on TV. But make no mistake about it: children die from lack of education all the time. Children without an education are more likely to grow up to have HIV/AIDS. They're more likely to die in infancy or before the age of five. Gene Sperling
My natural hair is jet black. I used to have it down to my bum. And I went through a phase of being obsessed with fake tan. So from the age of 14 to 16, I looked like an Apache Indian! Abbey Clancy
I've had a very unusual background in science - not the usual route of planning on being a scientist from age 3. I think my story shows that success is more about personal motivation and determination than it is about where you were born or what your economic status was. Craig Venter
I remember being in college knowing I didn't want to go anymore. I wanted to try and become an actor. There is a something in me, with a risk of sounding cliche, that I just had to do it. I knew from an early age that acting was my path. Jake Gyllenhaal
The way it works in our family is, it's the family business. Much like in the Mafia. Every child is given the opportunity to act at a young age and to learn what it's like to be in the business. But I didn't really know I wanted to act when I was a child. Jordan Bridges
When a noble life has prepared old age, it is not decline that it reveals, but the first days of immortality. Muriel Spark
I'm not one of those actors who lies about their age. Sara Ramirez
I often compare myself as a kid to my own grandchildren, who are around 11 and 14 now. That's the age kids usually read my book. And I remember myself; we'd gone through a world war. My father was an army officer so I was aware of what was going on. But I wasn't bombarded with images of catastrophe like many kids are today. Lois Lowry
In order to dance professionally, you have to start at a young age. No matter what, your muscle structure and your bones have to be groomed from a very young age. Nobody wakes up at 17 and decides to become a ballet dancer. Amanda Schull
I remember seeing 'Spinal Tap' at a young age and being like, 'That's how you perform comedy.' Bill Hader
I learned at a very early age, the easiest thing in the world is to tell the truth, and then you don't have to remember what you said. It has nothing to do with morality, just remembering what you said. Robert Evans
I first learned that there were black people living in some place called other than the United States in the western hemisphere when I was a very little boy, and my father told me that when he was a boy about my age, he wanted to be an Episcopal priest, because he so admired his priest, a black man from someplace called Haiti. Henry Louis Gates Jr.
The harvest of old age is the recollection and abundance of blessing previously secured. Marcus Tulliuis Cicero
When you have lost people like I lost my birth mom at a young age and you remember the whole process of losing her, you want to grab on to something that makes you whole. Reese Hoffa
In this knowledge-worker age, it's now increasingly tied to doing well in school so you can get into better grad schools so you can get better jobs - so the pressure to do well is really high. Stephen Covey
A house with any kind of age will have dozens of stories to tell. I suppose if a novelist could live long enough, one could base an entire oeuvre on the lives that weave in and out of an antique house. Anita Shreve
People think children's books are about teddy bears and little flowers. I realize people sometimes don't know what to do with my books because they say, 'Is it a children's book, and what age group?' Peter Sis
Inflation is when you pay fifteen dollars for the ten-dollar haircut you used to get for five dollars when you had hair. Sam Ewing
Early on I came to realize something, and it came from the mail I received from kids. That is, kids at that pivotal age, 12, 13 or 14, they're still deeply affected by what they read, some are changed by what they read, books can change the way they feel about the world in general. I don't think that's true of adults as much. Lois Lowry
We can be incredibly disconnected in this day and age with computers and cell phones. Marcia Gay Harden
Being nice to everybody, saying hello to everyone in the room, signing every autograph; it was instilled in me at a very young age that this was what I was suppose to do. But I don't think it helps at all. I see more people who are rude or arrogant being rewarded - but, this way, I can put my head on the pillow at night. Brooke Shields
I had assumed that I would age with all my friends growing old around me, dying off very gradually one by one. And here was a plague that cut them off so early. Thom Gunn
I am not a big technology person. I don't go on the Internet really much at all. Drawing is like a zen thing; it's private, which in this day and age is harder to come by. Tim Burton
My mother enjoyed old age, and because of her I've begun to enjoy parts of it too. So far I've had it good and am crumbling nicely. Lionel Blue
There's this Bruno Mars guy. I met him in Hawaii when was doing Elvis imitations at the age of about five or six years old. There's a lot of old school in him. He's got a depth that I just love. Bill Medley
Years ago we discovered the exact point, the dead center of middle age. It occurs when you are too young to take up golf and too old to rush up to the net. Franklin Pierce Adams
It doesn't matter what age you are, an effective song will move you. Britt Daniel
I do not run late. Growing up on a farm, you're just not late when it's time to do chores or go to work. I grew up Mennonite, and so that work ethic and timeliness was just ingrained in me from a very young age. Greg Brenneman
When that happens - when risk is taken and the filmmakers dive into the subject matter without a parachute - very often what you get it something with those qualities that make it age well with the public. Francis Ford Coppola
I'm sure it came as no surprise to my friends and family when I became an illustrator and then a writer because, from about the age of five, I was one of those children who always had his nose in a book. Philip Reeve
A man growing old becomes a child again. Sophocles
I'm an old guy. I don't hustle and I don't bustle. So sometimes you're behind, but that's okay. Your peace of mind is more important. I have seen the people who hustle and bustle, and they are already gone, at a young age. They could have enjoyed life. Kumar Pallana
Talk to people no one else is talking to. Who would have thought that giving a speech at a funeral at age 12 would introduce me to a man who would introduce me to my first business contact who would introduce me to several other important people in my life. That's luck. That's randomness. Ben Casnocha
The first and continuing argument for the curtailment of working hours and the raising of the minimum age was that education was necessary in a democracy and working children could not attend school. Grace Abbott
For example, UNICEF works with governments to change legislation such as in India where a law was passed raising the age of compulsory school completion to keep children in school and away from the workplace for longer. Carol Bellamy

I knew I wanted to be a singer from the age of five. I've been lucky to be so single-minded - some of my friends still don't know what they want to do, and they're finding it hard. There are home videos of me singing and taking centre stage at family parties when I'm about three. Pixie Lott
In this digital age, there is no place to hide behind public relations people. This digital age requires leaders to be visible and authentic and to be able to communicate the decisions they've made and why they've made them, to be able to acknowledge when they've made a mistake and to move forward, to engage in the debate. Gail Kelly
At a certain age it just became apparent to me that this was probably the work that I would have to do. Daniel Day-Lewis

What came up at age 49 is I realized that of all the things I'm interested in, the thing I'm most interested in is figuring out what makes people tick, why people think the way they do, why they act the way they do. And I realized that music is such a great way to investigate why people do what they do. Yo-Yo Ma
The story of 'Mirror Mirror' is in many ways a story about evolution. It's about the evolution of a child into an adult. It's about the evolution of those dwarves into something a little less rock-like, a little more humanoid. It's about the evolution of history, too, from the darkness of the Middle Ages into the light of the Age of Reason. Gregory Maguire
I was always a character actress, even when I was an ingenue. But as you age, people know what to do with you, and you're not quite as dependent on maintaining leading-lady beauty. Marylouise Burke
Bad news isn't wine. It doesn't improve with age. Colin Powell

There was a point where there was a vision that we'll get to a certain age, and then we'll retire and be happy. Now that's like, that's being compromised every day. So I think we have to start living happy now and stop waiting for the forty years because by then you'll be so sick, you wouldn't enjoy it anyway. Bruce Lipton
The criminal law needs to be improved to meet new forms of crime, but to denounce financial devices which are useful and legitimate because use is made of them for fraud, is ridiculous and unworthy of the age in which we live. William Graham Sumner

You never play age, you play character. Michael Steger
When I was younger, my whole sense of self-worth was based on whether or not I was working, which was awful. And I had a baby at 20 years old, so it wasn't just about me. At around the age of 30 there was a stretch where I wasn't working - certainly not on anything I liked, anyway - and I started to do other things. Kiefer Sutherland
But the age of chivalry is gone. That of sophisters, economists, and calculators has succeeded; and the glory of Europe is extinguished forever. Edmund Burke

In the summer of 1954, after several years in Austin, Minnesota, our family moved across the state to the small, rural town of Worthington, where my dad became regional manager for a life insurance company. To me, at age 7, Worthington seemed a perfectly splendid spot on the earth. Tim O'Brien
Every work of art is the child of its age and, in many cases, the mother of our emotions. It follows that each period of culture produces an art of its own which can never be repeated. Wassily Kandinsky

Age does not depend upon years, but upon temperament and health. Some men are born old, and some never grow so. Tryon Edwards

I've wanted to make films since a really young age. It's always been my passion. Ryan Gosling

I don't think the way I portray mother's and son's relationships has anything to do with my age or generation. It has to do with what I lived with my own mother and what it's transformed into and the point of view it has given me on mothers and women. The way I was brought up with women. It's all about personal background. Xavier Dolan
Both my parents were amateur badminton players. My father is a scientist and wanted me to be a doctor. But my mom was very aggressive and loved badminton. She pushed me right from the age of nine to take up the sport. Saina Nehwal

I think of the patina of age on materials, of innumerable small scratches on surfaces, of varnish that has grown dull and brittle, and of edges polished by use. Peter Zumthor
Well, I never got into the young adult headspace. With 'Twilight,' they are pretty adult themes, aside from maybe the first one, but even that. They're very adult themes, actually, particularly as the characters age. I never wrote for young adults. I wrote for myself, as an audience. Melissa Rosenberg
Youngsters of the age of two and three are endowed with extraordinary strength. They can lift a dog twice their own weight and dump him into the bathtub. Erma Bombeck
Surrendering to jargon is a sign of journalism's dismal lack of self-confidence in the optimized age of content-management systems. George Packer

It seemed like my professional life would take a more scientific route. I guess that plan started to become undone when, at the age of 17, I happened upon a screening of Alain Resnais' 'Hiroshima Mon Amour,' and it took my breath away. Arnon Goldfinger
Jazz celebrates older generations and not just the youth movement. When you 'sell' only to people of a certain age, you get cut off from the main body of experience. Wynton Marsalis

It wasn't until I left that I realised it's not weird to grow up in certain cities and, by the age of 27 or 28, for all of your friends to still be alive. I can think of a lot of kids that I knew in Chicago who were supposed to grow up but didn't. Chance The Rapper
I was focused on building things from an early age. When I was about 3, our toilet broke, and my mother was ready to call the plumber. I told her I would fix it and asked her to get my Richard Scarry book 'How Things Work in Busytown.' Between the picture of a toilet and the text she read to me explaining how the parts worked, I fixed it. Colin Angle
I really don't get nervous when I perform -it's more of an exciting feeling than anything else. But put me in a classroom with kids my age and have me take a test and yeah, I'll be nervous! Alexa Vega
I began acting at age eight, but if you don't stay on your game then people pass on you. Being on a show, it's a little easy to get comfortable, so I'm trying to get back on it. I'm taking some acting classes and watching movies, and I'm just trying to stay up with other actors. Jason Dohring
I'm well past the age where I'm acceptable. You get to a certain age and you are forbidden access. You're not going to get the kind of coverage that you would like in music magazines, you're not going to get played on radio and you're not going to get played on television. I have to survive on word of mouth. David Bowie
It's hard for women at my age in Hollywood, but I'm not discouraged. Jane Fonda

Laughter crosses boundaries of class and age... Humour is universal. Jeremy Lloyd
I started writing at the age of seventeen because I had a teacher in high school who said that we had to get something accepted by a national magazine to get an A. The teacher later withdrew that threat, but the writing bug bit me. Laurence Yep
I never really felt like my age stopped people from wanting to work with me. I was speaking at conferences and lecturing at universities at 18, and I think that was mainly because web developing and management was a really young industry. Matt Mickiewicz
I don't think I was awake for much of my childhood. I did a lot of napping. This might have been a defensive measure against encroaching depression. Until about the age of eleven or twelve, I had zero interests other than trying to steal gumballs from supermarket gumball machines. Michael Ian Black
As for whether I am a 'new age guru', I am not at all. I help companies build employees who lead without a title and become high performers. Robin Sharma

Prom has all the elements of a popular story. It reeks of all-Americanness, tension, drama. It has romance. Pretty dresses. Dancing. Limos. High school. Coming of age. Adora Svitak

Love has no age, no limit; and no death. John Galsworthy
At a certain age, death becomes familiar to you-or a loss becomes familiar-the tragedies that are more commonplace in life. Jessica Lange

My parents were concerned that I would not get good schooling, so they put me up in my uncle's house in Dharwad, and I spent about six years there. So at a very young age, I was away from my parents. I developed an amount of independence and learned to stand on my own feet. Nandan Nilekani
For a novelist, the great thing about the Stone Age people is that we know virtually nothing about their beliefs - which means that I get to make it up! But it's still got to be plausible. Michelle Paver
At the age of eight, I discovered that I could write songs. My dad used to take them to the notary and register them so that nobody could steal them from me. Shakira
Judges don't age; time decorates them. Enid Bagnold
My childhood was surrounded by books and writing. From a very early age I was fascinated by storytelling, by the printed word, by language, by ideas. So I would seek them out. Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Obviously, at this age, I've lost people in my life. But with a parent, it's just different. I was very attached to my father and had this naive little-girl notion that he'd always be around. So I'm finding acceptance of my father's death is the hardest thing to accept. Carol Leifer
Character roles definitely age better than your ingenues. You don't get to keep doing that. Catherine O'Hara

It's a little silly to finally learn how to write at this age. But I long ago realized I was secretly sincere. Annie Dillard
I was drafted into the Army when I was 19 and came out at age 22. Most people that I knew didn't think they'd come home alive. I didn't think I would either, so I was happy when I did. Ed Koch
I felt connected with Madonna from a very young age. I think I share a lot of qualities from her personality. I really respect her. Marina and the Diamonds
Age doesn't mean anything. Its all in your head. Men get sexier with age. They also get wiser and get experienced. Arjun Rampal
Like so many of the players, I started at La Masia at the age of 11. I can't ever imagine not playing for Barcelona, let alone not playing soccer for a career. I don't ever want to play anywhere else. Xavi

I've become 40, my audience is partly the same age. Jean-Claude Van Damme
To be free in an age like ours, one must be in a position of authority. That in itself would be enough to make me ambitious. Hannah Arendt
What's interesting about the shift from an industrial age to a technological age is that we keep inventing new media: movies, records, radio, television, the Internet, and now ebooks - and one of the things that's most interesting about the invention of a new medium is watching it reinvent itself as it penetrates the culture. David Gerrold
I've elected to age gracefully. Alana Stewart
Although it is generally known, I think it's about time to announce that I was born at a very early age. Douglas Horton

But look, I was born in 1956, the peak year for births in US history. I think I'm very representative of many of the thought processes my generation have been through and, by and large, people of my age have had their imprint planted on the consciousness of western society for a long time. Tom Hanks
My mother got pregnant with me at the age of fifteen. This was '64, and unheard of at that time. Dr. Dre

International politics is no longer a zero-sum game but a multi-dimensional arena where cooperation and competition often occur simultaneously. Gone is the age of blood feuds. World leaders are expected to lead in turning threats into opportunities. Hassan Rouhani
The poet existed among the cave men; he will exist among men of the atomic age, for he is an inherent part of man. Even religions have been born from the need for poetry, which is a spiritual need, and it is through the grace of poetry that the divine spark lives forever in the human flint. Saint-John Perse
Christian children should be taught at an early age that everything they receive is because of God's grace and love. They will grow up more appreciative and begin to understand that they, too, must have a relationship with Christ. Christian children should also be taught how to give. Monica Johnson
You want calamities? What about the Ice Age? Mario Cuomo
Children learn many principles of natural law at a very early age. For example: they learn that when one child has picked up an apple or a flower, it is his, and that his associates must not take it from him against his will. Lysander Spooner
We live in a beauty-obsessed age and success sometimes appears to hinge solely on the presentation of an image that is acceptable to the press. Douglas Booth

I'm at peace with myself and where I am. In the past, I was always looking to see how everybody else was doing. I wasn't competitive, I was comparative. I just wanted to be where everybody else was. Now I've gotten to an age when I am not comparing anymore. Courteney Cox
If you take a perfectly well-adjusted normal person of any age from anywhere in the country and stick them in L.A., within about a week I do believe that a lot of their values and morals will start to degrade. Chris Eigeman

There are a lot of downsides to being male. We age faster and die younger. But give us this: we're lifetime baby-making machines. Women's reproductive abilities start to wane when they're as young as 35. Men? We're good to go pretty much till we're dead. Jeffrey Kluger
I mean, Eighteen years old is the age of consent in Europe and you can go anywhere and do anything you like. In America, it is dumb. At eighteen you should be able to do anything that you like, except get married. John Entwistle
From a very early age, I knew I wanted to be Carl Denham. Richard Stanley
Age merely shows what children we remain. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
We are keeping healthier and living longer and I am a good example of someone who is in the Age Concern bracket but is still working and keeping active. Susan Hampshire
I don't like it when people who are young act like they're 40. That's taking too much on. Putting up a shield and trying to act like you're so mature or whatever - I don't try to act mature. Some people might say I'm mature for my age, but it's not something I'm trying to do, you know? I'm just me. Taylor Swift
Age seldom arrives smoothly or quickly. It's more often a succession of jerks. Jean Rhys
You've gotta understand that with branding and the way things are promoted, in our day and age, your older movie stars are not reachable or accessible because they're not a part of the whole social media world. Kevin Hart
If you look at the average age of a company on the Dow Jones index, it's something like 35 years or younger. In other words... success is no indication of longevity. Simon Sinek
Age is an ugly thing, and it goes on getting worse. Diana Cooper
I don't think I have ever done anything for this age of children before, a pre-school audience. Generally speaking, we don't have vivid memories of that age and what influenced us, yet clearly they are hugely formative years and it's really important that we can create television of a high quality for that audience. David Tennant
A few actresses have all but set up shop as women of a certain age who attract younger lovers. I think of Susan Sarandon, Cameron Diaz and Isabelle Huppert. Roger Ebert
It is not possible to live in this age if you don't have a sense of many contradictory forces. Rem Koolhaas
India saw from the beginning, and, even in her ages of reason and her age of increasing ignorance, she never lost hold of the insight, that life cannot be rightly seen in the sole light, cannot be perfectly lived in the sole power of its externalities. Sri Aurobindo
Broadcast radio was entering its own golden age during the Depression, with live programming on stations all through the day. Local stations needed singers, musicians, announcers, and whipcord personalities, along with Christian clergy to give prayers and pundits to speak on world affairs. Douglas Brinkley
Acting was truly all that I ever wanted to do. I've always acted in plays and sang and played music, and you get to a certain age and think there's nothing else that you'd rather do. Jane Badler

You can wear black at any time. You can wear it at any age. You may wear it for almost any occasion; a 'little black frock' is essential to a woman's wardrobe. Christian Dior
Unfortunately, we are still in an age where individuals may be discriminated against because of health conditions. Lois Capps
Age wrinkles the body. Quitting wrinkles the soul. Douglas MacArthur
I wanted to be an actor from a young age, but actually becoming one and seen the ugly side of the world does feel different and sometimes unwelcome. There are shallow, vapid, untalented people zombieing the streets of Hollywood, adding decadence and immorality to an already extravagant business. Fran Kranz

I wanted to look at the upper-middle-class scene since the war, and in particular my generation's part in it. We had spent our early years as privileged members of a privileged class. How were we faring in the Age of the Common Man? How ought we to be faring? Simon Raven

God forbid we keep a couple secrets in this day and age! Joey McIntyre
I got into journalism because I came of age in the '60s. It just seemed one way for me to get things done. Joe Klein

My natural mother died one month after I was born, apparently due to giving birth at an advanced age. Koichi Tanaka

We have started something called the Corporate Services Corps. Now, it was modeled after the Peace Corps from long ago, the 1960s.

You know, globally aware, contribute, understand how to work in that environment, but do it on scale. Ginni Rometty
I am 54 and age is slowly writing itself on my face. Arthur Smith
Robert Crumb is an influence on how I draw, but not on the subject matter I take or my approach. One thing I do like about Crumb is that he's chronicled his age, his times, and I think that is what artists should do. Joe Sacco
I'm not afraid to play my age. I never was. I've never been an ingenue. I like getting older. Maria Bello

I must be more sensible and realize that at my age, illusions are hardly permitted and they will always destroy me. Paul Cezanne

The older generation had greater respect for land than science. But we live in an age when science, more than soil, has become the provider of growth and abundance. Living just on the land creates loneliness in an age of globality. Shimon Peres
And I'm afraid, in this day and age, trust, which I count so, you know, I love loyalty. I love trust. Elton John

Julie Burchill
The full retirement age is 67 and the lifespan is 80, so when they first conceived Social Security, they didn't think they were going to be paying benefits for 13-15 years. That's one of the reasons why this pyramid scheme isn't working. Joe Heck
My acting career began at age three and my parents got me into it. I was in a McDonald's commercial. Corey Feldman

I was fascinated by 'The Lord of the Rings' from about the age of eight, and that lasted well into my teens. Philip Reeve
We say, 'You may drink at the age of 21 but not at the age of 20.' Why? Because humans like to create terribly neat categories out of nature because it allows us a nice, tight social organization.

When I was 16, I was like any other boy at that age who dreams of having a good physique. Rohit Shetty
Grandmasters decline with age. That's a given. There is nothing special about the age of 40, but age eventually takes its toll. That much is clear.

I got into theater at an early age. Kevin Daniels
At the age of 41, I'm glad I still have hair. Tony Stewart

The way a woman or a man handles themselves, at a certain age I can't blame you for the way you act, because somebody didn't bring you up right, and the betterment is why I have a foundation titled Angels and Hearts. That's why I have Trey's Angels: to let women know that they are angels. Trey Songz

I was writing at a really young age, but it took me a long time to be brave enough to become a published writer, or to try to become a published writer. It's a very public way to fail. And I was kind of scared, so I started out as a ghost writer, and I wrote for other series, like Disney 'Aladdin' and 'Sweet Valley' and books like that. K. A. Applegate
Not many people do at the age of 21 or younger even, know how to act nor could be concerned with anything other than fighting, women and money. Alexis Arguello

The problem with middle age, at least when it comes to modeling, is you seldom see a model who is past 27, 28. If they use anyone older, then it becomes automatically a 'personality' story. Isabella Rossellini
Lives are saved when those potential killers are confronted by a police officer, a strong police presence and actual, honest-to-goodness, up-close 'What are you guys doing on this corner at 1 o'clock in the morning' policing. We need to be careful it doesn't drift away from us in the age of viral videos, or there will be profound consequences. James Comey
My father was from the South and turned me into a news junkie at a very early age. I would sit and watch TV with him. Karen Bass
I think about 'The Simpsons,' which has been going on for 25 years. Homer is still in his late 30's. Lisa is 8, Bart is 10. Their stories are told. Yet the series keeps going on and on like a zombie that won't lie down and die. That feels forced and unnatural. The characters never change, grow, age. Ted Naifeh
At the age of 60, I am less experimental and more mature. I want most of all to convey my understanding of life. Orhan Pamuk

'America 24/7' will be a landmark series in documentary photography and the watershed event of the new digital photography age. Rick Smolan
When I ask my parents, it's incredibly obvious I was going to have a creative career at an early age. I've been forever telling stories since I was very young. Sophie Kennedy Clark

Very curious, at the age of about 13 years, Oswald began to study Marxism and he kept on in his writing, affirming that he was a Marxist. Probably he did want to show himself as a great, supreme Marxist. John Sherman Cooper
Poetry was the first step, and from the age of 18, there was nothing else I wanted to do. Christopher Koch
I became married at a young age and had two daughters and divorced at 26. I had to go on welfare to make ends meet. I had no way to support myself. Clarissa Pinkola Estes
I came to think that nobody from England could draw American comic books, because they were clearly all done by this sort of Mafia, all these guys with Italian and Irish names who had the whole thing sewn up. It was actually seeing a comic book drawn by Barry Smith, who was about my age, and English. Dave Gibbons
I never imagined I could make it to the top of Mount Everest at age 80. This is the world's best feeling, although I'm totally exhausted. Even at 80, I can still do quite well. Yuichiro Miura
You don't stop laughing because you grow older. You grow older because you stop laughing. Maurice Chevalier
Three hundred years ago, during the Age of Enlightenment, the coffee house became the center of innovation. Peter Diamandis
Well, Jeff Buckley for me is one of the greatest singers I've ever heard. And the reason why is he has an amazing range, amazing emotional power in his voice. And the music he put around it also just had this passion and this soul to it and this spirit to it that very few artists have, and he passed at a very young age. John Legend
'Match of the Day' is a great programme to be on. It's a programme I used to be allowed to stay up and watch from the age of 10, so to think that one day I'd actually appear on it was great. Mark Lawrenson
I had the good fortune to be able to right an injustice that I thought was being heaped on young people by lowering the voting age, where you had young people that were old enough to die in Vietnam but not old enough to vote for their members of Congress that sent them there. Birch Bayh
The exhaustion of old age is something people who are younger don't fully appreciate. Tony Benn
Our age knows nothing but reaction, and leaps from one extreme to another. Reinhold Niebuhr
I would like to say how much I resent people who say of the Islamic Republic that this is our culture - as if women like to be stoned to death, or as if they like to be married at the age of nine. Azar Nafisi
Only by keeping oneself in constant process of growth, under the constant influence of the best things in one's own age, does one become a companion halfway good enough for one's children. Ellen Key
In an age robbed of religious symbols, going to the shops replaces going to the church. We have a free choice, but at a price. We can win experience, but never achieve innocence. Marx knew that the epic activities of the modern world involve not lance and sword but dry goods. Stephen Bayley
Being gay and being a woman has one big thing in common, which is that we both become invisible after the age of 42. Who wants a gay 50-year-old? No one, let me tell you. Rupert Everett
This age thing is all up to you. It's like happiness is up to you. You just have to understand what it is before you get it. Elaine Stritch
Old age is an excellent time for outrage. My goal is to say or do at least one outrageous thing every week. Louis Kronenberger

There is an anti-aging possibility, but it has to come from within. Susan Anton
In a lot of the art world, you have to present yourself as you know what you're doing at a young age. Music gave me another outlet. The 'no wave' bands were such an inspiration; it felt so free - once you start doing it, it's hard to stop. But I can't get away from art. It comes back around. I wouldn't be true to myself if I didn't pursue it. Kim Gordon
There are some fantastic roles for women and women of a certain age on television, whether it's 'Medium' or 'The Closer' or 'Damages' or 'Saving Grace.' Megan Follows
The reason some younger women were willing to go out with my flabby, ageing self was that no one of their own age would put up with them for more than 10 minutes. Mark Barrowcliffe

It's always a really great feeling when I talk to people who watched 'Jett Jackson' because we were the same age. We were all kids. I was 13 when I started working on that show, and that was part of my childhood. Lee Thompson Young
Certainly there are great men whose age circumscribes them so completely that we lose interest. Haniel Long
By the age of 50, I would like to know that I'm not dead - that there's some continuity to my life. John Cassavetes
The fear of old age is something that one feels when they're younger. Once you get to being old, you're already there, so you don't even think about it anymore. Paolo Sorrentino
My best friend just had a baby, and she's my age. So I'm a godmom now, which is crazy. Kristen Stewart
I basically get stereotyped a lot in terms of being a girl and writing 'chick' music for teenage girls or something. I think, if anything, the press kind of, because of my gender and my age, tends to kind of relegate my work to this sort of special-interest group. It's part of the cultural dynamic, I guess. Ani DiFranco
The man Dickens, whom the world at large thought it knew, stood for all the Victorian virtues - probity, kindness, hard work, sympathy for the down-trodden, the sanctity of domestic life - even as his novels exposed the violence, hypocrisy, greed, and cruelty of the Victorian age. Robert Gottlieb
I stumbled into soul music at a very young age. It had something that really spoke to me. Erik Hassle

I was a surf bum wannabe. I left home at age 17 and moved to Southern California to try to take up surfing as a vocation, but this was in 1964, and there was this nasty little thing called the Vietnam War. As a result, I got drafted. Craig Venter
Well, I always wanted to write from the time I was very little, and my mother encouraged me. She wrote a journal from the time she was 15 up until about the age of 76. Francine Rivers
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. Aldous Huxley
You get to an age when you lose people close to you. Ciaran Hinds
Either God is alive, in which case he'll deal with us as he sees fit. Or he is dead, in which case he was never alive, it being unlikely that he died of old age. John Ralston Saul
I decided at age 9, but I was reinforced at age 13 when a teacher told me I had talent. I can't say she really motivated me because I already knew. I knew I had talent. I went to the Jewish community theater and got in plays there. Then I went for the movies.' Richard Dreyfuss
You know you're getting old when all the names in your black book have M. D. after them. Harrison Ford
Filth and old age, I'm sure you will agree, are powerful wardens upon chastity. Geoffrey Chaucer

In this new age of GPS, Google Earth and multidimensional digital maps, mapping is suddenly hugely relevant again. Hans-Ulrich Obrist

I am someone who, from a very young age, was a huge fan of DC Comics. Jason Fuchs

Even though I am extremely blessed to have accomplished many of my goals at such a young age, I am still reaching, still striving. Jennifer Hudson
I was five years old; I got addicted to being on stage. I felt like it was the most wonderful place on Earth, performing in front of an audience, who in this case were a bunch of classmates, kids my age. Shakira
Age puzzles me. I thought it was a quiet time. My seventies were interesting and fairly serene, but my eighties are passionate. I grow more intense as I age. Florida Scott-Maxwell
Filming is a very adult world, and you need to be with people your own age. Georgie Henley
I'd call my work 'instinctual design.' I like to find the spirit of a piece that defies time, age, and occasion. My clothes give the wearer the chance to develop their own voice within a wardrobe, and I think of them as curators of their personal style. Chris Benz
I wouldn't mind working with Queens of the Stone Age, doing some guitar stuff on that. Even Arctic Monkeys. I'd like to do be a bit of guitar with them guys. I'll play on anyone's record to be honest with you. Steve Jones
In terms of acting, I've been acting from a very young age. I've always loved it and wanted to have a career in acting or something to do with it. April Pearson
I knew at a young age that I wanted to do comedy, and maybe part of that was trying to fit in at school because I had a weird name, and my parents had these accents, and I was definitely a late bloomer. Nasim Pedrad
I gotta tell you, right at the top of my list would be taking vitamins. I know that over the years doctors have said they're ridiculous and all that. But I started taking my vitamins at an early age. And I take them every day. Every bloody day! So I think that's number one. For whatever reason, I feel active and pretty good at my age. Regis Philbin
It makes it very exciting don't you think to live in an age of, of discovery of human personality this way? John Money

My daughter, Grace, was not killed by a gun. She died suddenly at age 5 from a virulent form of strep. As I stood stunned in a church at her memorial, one of the hardest things I heard someone say was, 'I'm going to go home and hug my child a little tighter.' 'Well, good for you,' I thought. 'I'm going to go home and scream.' Ann Hood
I'm just sick of the way things are. We're in an age in which we can't live without accepting the logic of the market. Contemporary politics is all about short-term pragmatism. We have abandoned religion and philosophy... What we have left is the automatisation of doing what the market tells us. Jose Mujica
So Harry Potter came in and it is nice that I have kids of the right age. I took them to London and they walked around the set and met Harry Potter and that is thrilling. Gary Oldman

In an ideological age, diplomacy may seem weak and prosaic. But sometimes it is all we have. Noah Feldman
The old age of lower mammals presents characters similar to those found in man. Elie Metchnikoff

The greatest writers of this age... are aware of the mystery of our existence. J. B. Priestley
If you look at body fat, it seems to increase with age, even though your weight does not. That's a physiological fact of aging, they say. Heck it is. It is an adaptive effect of aging. Kenneth H. Cooper

You watch yourself age and it's hard to feel like a sex symbol. Idris Elba
The reason I always loved 'The Omen' so much, and what has always been scariest to me, is anything to do with God. Anything to do with God is quite frightening because fear is something that's very much expressed in a church environment, and I grew up in one. And the fear of God was very much instilled me at a very young age. KaDee Strickland
Your timeless self does not age and has no fear of the future. Contemplate your physical self and all its possessions, and practice laughing peacefully at it all. Wayne Dyer
I'm in my father's car at age 9 or 10 crying to Leonard Cohen's 'Famous Blue Raincoat,' thinking that you could write nearly a love letter to a man who betrayed you by having an affair with your wife. I was thinking how wonderful and pure music can be for explaining situations. Lou Doillon
I grew up on a farm in Oregon, an adopted child, with one sibling, and parents the age of all my peers' grandparents.

I always felt like I was looking at the world from the outside. Larry Harvey
We all know now that people can look good for their age. It isn't so extraordinary, I don't know why people go on about it so much. Francesca Annis
I absolutely don't relate to being beaten down my whole life - I had amazing opportunities at a young age - but there is still in many, many people's minds the notion that I'll never be able to escape Harry Potter. Daniel Radcliffe
To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age. 'Tis much better to do a little with certainty & leave the rest for others that come after you. Isaac Newton
The sanitary and mechanical age we are now entering makes up for the mercy it grants to our sense of smell by the ferocity with which it assails our sense of hearing. Havelock Ellis
We don't need to update the paper through the night, so we don't need so many people working anti-social hours producing a newspaper for real-time news. That's the equivalent of the steam age. Lionel Barber

We put so much pressure on kids to excel in school at such a young age. Caitlyn Jenner
I couldn't have ever married an actor. They have a childishness carried into an age when maturity should have set in. Susan Kohner

And his mental capacity to make reasonable contracts is certainly not to be determined by the fact that he is, or is not, twenty-one years of age. Lysander Spooner
What's changed is we now have good anatomical, geological, archaeological evidence that Neanderthals are not our ancestors. When I wrote 'Lucy,' I considered Neanderthals ancestors of modern humans.

Self-acceptance has been a blessed by-product of middle age. Candice Bergen
Then there are actors my age like Ethan Hawke, he's in 'Moby Dick,' I love his work. I've been lucky. Alfred Molina, he has real class. Billy Boyd
We have become a society that can't self-correct, that can't address its obvious problems, that can't pull out of its nosedive.

Thomas Frank
Italians know that what matters is style, not fashion. Italian style does not have social or age boundaries. Stefano Gabbana

When kids my age were picking up toy cars, I used to buy toy guns. Gagan Narang
I didn't actually know what a vegetarian was until I was 13 years old. I know in this day and age it's hard to believe that, but I think because I grew up on a farm, I wasn't indulged in magazines, newspapers, Internet, television. And so, for some reason, I was never exposed to what a vegetarian was. Abbie Cornish
As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world - that is the myth of the atomic age - as in being able to remake ourselves. Mahatma Gandhi
If the Age of Sport has been all champagne and roses hitherto, then expect our love affair with its newly-acquired prominence to become increasingly tainted by scandals about cheating. Sport is losing its shine and allure. Martin Jacques

You want to see women your own age in films. Lynda Carter
The Word of fire burns today On the lips of our prophets in an evil age. Margaret Walker

I played guitar from the age of four or five. Every year there would be a slightly larger triangular box under the Christmas tree, until finally I got one that was big enough to make a proper sound. Johnny Marr

I like to learn about things. I could learn about business, which I knew nothing about. Since the age of 7, I wanted to be a doctor and nothing else. Vincent Lo
I spent my childhood watching every scary movie that Hollywood ever made. And I think that gave me the best education for storytelling. It also made me want to reproduce the scary moments that I felt, sitting in a theater at the age of 5. Tess Gerritsen
The truth is I don't feel too bad for my age. I actually have a better shape now than I used to. Gary Lineker
My story wasn't one of those cliched stories of being an ugly duckling, I had a pretty good time at school.

Erin O'Connor
Radio is aimed at the 30-year-old market, so you have to have great music and appeal to get that age group. And you need a record company to believe in you. It's like a bit of the perfect storm. Kenny Rogers

I've been in motorsport my whole life since I was eight years of age. Nigel Mansell

I was born in Iran, left at a very young age - less than a year old - and grew up and was educated in the West. Hooman Majd

Until the age of thirteen, I tortured the waiting worlds of book illustration and professional football by shilly-shallying over which of them was going to get the benefit of my inestimable talents. Glen Duncan

I wrote my first script, which was 50 pages, at age 15. It was about two brothers in love with the same nurse while they're convalescing in a Civil War hospital. Cary Fukunaga

In an age of social media and content being key, it's important to change the mold where you have $100,000 to $150,000 for one video. I hired some guys that are young, just out of college, and we used some new, far-less-expensive cameras and technology to make videos. Ronnie Dunn
I don't look at 'Vogue' to ask what I'm going to wear. Because it's something on a body too young. I have to look at the social pages to see women my age. To see how Amanda Burden is dressed and say, 'Hmmm. Maybe I should try that.' Isabella Rossellini

I don't feel as if I belong to an age group. Quentin Blake

You get to a certain age, and you are forbidden access. You're not going to get the kind of coverage that you would like in music magazines; you're not going to get played on radio, and you're not going to get played on television. I have to survive on word of mouth. David Bowie

Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen. Albert Einstein
I had the fortune or misfortune to learn how to read fluently starting at the age of three. So I had read maybe 150 books by the time I hit 1st grade. And I already knew that the teachers were lying to me. Alan Kay
To me age is a number, just a number. Who cares? Jeanne Moreau

One of the hard things in my life has been balancing my education with my acting career, because I've been acting since the age of seven, on and off, just doing little parts and things. I've always been very keen to stay in school. Anna Popplewell

You get to that age where you're watching a lot of television, and who doesn't want to be on television? Jason Marsden

I grew up in Burbank - but not the Burbank of valet parking and TV studios. In the late 1950s, there was a small apartment complex on Elmwood Avenue that rented mostly to families on welfare. I lived there from age 3 to 11 and again from 14 to 18 with my mother, Shirley, and my younger sister, Toni. Rene Russo
Human society has dense borders - economic, religious and cultural - inculcated from an early age. We hate change. Alejandro Jodorowsky

You are not alone with a guy until you are a proper age. You don't go to certain levels with men until you are married or you have a certain relationship. Daisy Fuentes

Age appears to be best in four things; old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read. Francis Bacon
Why do so many children love the idea of being snowed in or shipwrecked, of having to survive on one's own? When I was a child, I was no exception. I wanted to hunt with a bow and arrow like the Stone Age people: to skin deer and build my own shelter. And I desperately wanted a wolf. As we lived in London, my options were limited. Michelle Paver
Like so many others, I came to romance during the golden age of it - Judith McNaught, Julie Garwood, Johanna Lindsey and Jude Deveraux were at the height of their historical domination. Without those women, I wouldn't be a romance novelist. Sarah MacLean

Love makes those young whom age doth chill, and whom he finds young keeps young still. William Cartwright

I learned at an early age that using the third person will push some buttons. Craig Kilborn

They used to gather clandestinely to read the plays; on one occasion, the book was passed around for each man to mark his favourite lines. Daniel Hannan
But we are not going to stand by and go back to allowing people with preexisting conditions to be discriminated against, go back to the situation where people can be thrown off their insurance simply because they become seriously ill or you can't get on your parents' insurance after the age of 20. David Axelrod

Study is the bane of childhood, the oil of youth, the indulgence of adulthood, and a restorative in old age. Walter Savage Landor
I was born the same week NASA was founded, so we're the same age and feel some of the same pains, joys, and frustrations. Neil deGrasse Tyson

From a young age I was obsessed with the mysterious, the esoteric, the paranormal. Drummond Money-Coutts
The things kids can do on screens can be really delightful - if they are age appropriate. But no, they shouldn't spend all their time on a screen; they should split up their time doing multiple, different things. Clive Thompson

I couldn't do it at all. I was never really good at it, but I can't imagine what it can be like as a fortunate person not having to deal with it. I mean, people of all ages, not just my age, 25, 35, all the way down the line. Stockard Channing
It could fairly be said that America, during the Bush years, has entered an Age of Denial - arguably the first stage of a nation's decline. Graydon Carter

My career in racing started at a very young age in California. Jeff Gordon
To me it seems as plain as can be that the Bible declares that all the wicked will God destroy; again, that those who, during the Millennial age when brought to a knowledge of the truth, shall prove willful sinners will be punished with everlasting destruction. Charles Taze Russell
I read '1984' at a precocious age, like 8, and when I did the math, I realized that Julia, Winston Smith's lover, was born the same year I was, 1957. I read that book over and over again with the 1960s as a backdrop: anti-war and anti-bomb protests and this general pervasive sense of doom. Elizabeth Hand

In an age where everything and everyone is linked through networks of glass and air, no one - no business, organization, government agency, country - is an island.

Naveen Jain
When people think of me initially, they remember me as 'Akeelah.' Sometimes it can be frustrating to be remembered at an age that you've outgrown. Keke Palmer
I seemed so different from other kids; I grew up in church and felt a connection with God, and a lot of kids my age really didn't understand that. Fantasia Barrino

When an actress is younger, she likes to lower her age, but when she is older, she likes to add to her years. Katharine Cornell
Its not age as much as the experiences I have had. Tony Curtis
We have grown accustomed to the wonders of clean water, indoor plumbing, laser surgery, genetic engineering, artificial joints, replacement body parts, and the much longer lives that accompany them. Yet we should remember that the vast majority of humans ever born died before the age of 10 from an infectious disease. S. Jay Olshansky
In old age we are like a batch of letters that someone has sent. We are no longer in the past, we have arrived. Knut Hamsun
I'm 42 and the age of a guy who has kids, so I guess I'm playing right where I'm supposed to be. I'm comfortable with that, but in the same breath I'd do something edgy. If someone came to me and offered me an edgy and funny story, then I'd do it. Eddie Murphy

While the digital age has done so much to improve our world, it has dramatically changed our social structure, often further isolating us from each other. Dean Ornish

With Storytelling, at least, it's explicit: this is what the censors say American citizens, no matter what age, are not permitted to see, even though it can be seen by other people all over the world. I suppose you could call it a political statement. Todd Solondz
My first seven novels were contemporary spiritual novels, my next nine had strong elements of fantasy, and now I'm writing thrillers, more as a choice to spread my wings than anything. Writers, like good wine, should mature with age. Ted Dekker

I would have loved to have been a footballer like my great uncle Matt Busby, but I knew quite early on that I wasn't going to make the grade.

Youth is the gift of nature, but age is a work of art. Stanislaw Jerzy Lec

We live in an age of mediocrity. Lauren Bacall
We have to understand that we should, at all times, have the right and the power to make decisions about our bodies. And that is an idea that must be taught at a young age. You can't wait until a person is 18 years old and say, 'Now you have the right'. You have to start that from the gate. Jada Pinkett Smith

My autism is a very mild form. It was diagnosed at the age of 25, partly because it wasn't diagnosable as a teenager (this is Asperger's syndrome, specifically).

Life expectancy in many parts of Africa can be something around the age of thirty five to thirty eight. I mean you're very fortunate if you live to that age. In fact when I went to Uganda for the first time one of the things that occurred to me was that I saw very few elderly people. Annie Lennox
Confusion of goals and perfection of means seems, in my opinion, to characterize our age. Albert Einstein

Oddly, in this age of the blinding white Oprah pantsuit, when everything is illuminated, it seems a Victorian lace curtain still hangs over the delicate womanly matter of our personal expenditures. Sandra Tsing Loh

We live in an age where there is a firehose of information, and there is no hierarchy of what is important and what is not. Where the truth is often fashioned through a variety of digital means.
