Older quotes by Catherine Opie
#1. One of the greatest things about being an artist is, as you get older, if you keep working hard in relationship to what you want the world to be and how you want it to become, there is a history of interesting growth that resonates with different moments in your life. #Quote by Catherine Opie
Older quotes by Michael  Grant
#2. I want my mom," a little boy cried out suddenly.
Every voice fell silent. The boy had said what they were all feeling.
Caine hopped down from the car and went to the boy. He knelt down and took the boy's hands in his own. He asked the boy's name, and reintroduced himself. "We all want our parents back," he said gently, but loudly enough to be overheard clearly by those nearest. "We all want that. And I believe that will happen. I believe we will see all our moms and dads, and older brothers and sisters, and even our teachers again. I believe that. Do you believe it, too?"
"Yes." The little boy sobbed.
Caine wrapped him in a hug and said, "Be strong. Be your mommy's strong little boy."
"He's good," Astrid said. "He's beyond good."
Then Caine stood up. People had formed a circle around him, close but respectful. "We all have to be strong. We all have to get through this. If we work together to choose good leaders and do the right thing, we will make it."
The entire crowd of kids seemed to stand a little taller. There were determined looks on faces that had been weary and frightened.
Sam was mesmerized by the performance. In just a few minutes' time, Caine had infused hope into a very frightened, dispirited bunch of kids.
Astrid seemed mesmerized too, though Sam thought he detected the cool glint of skepticism in her eyes.
Sam was skeptical himself. He distrusted rehearsed displays. He distrusted charm. But it was hard not to thi #Quote by Michael Grant
Older quotes by Lena Dunham
#3. I should do the things that make me feel cool and smart. As I get older, I'm realizing more and more that it doesn't really matter if I'm good at it, it just matters that I try. My own effort, my own willingness, are becoming what's appealing to me. #Quote by Lena Dunham
Older quotes by Erica Jong
#4. But the great compensation for being fifty in a culture that is not kind to older women is that you care less about criticism and you are less afraid of confrontation. In a world not made for women, criticism and ridicule follow us all the days of our lives. Usually they are indications that we are doing something right. #Quote by Erica Jong
Older quotes by John Walter Bratton
#5. My goodness, you're 60 already, already
Time is a thief
But still, you're only as old as your tongue
And a little bit older than your teeth
Have a wonderful birthday #Quote by John Walter Bratton
Older quotes by Martin Lel
#6. It was a very hard life. As I got older, the family was depending very much on me. My two older brothers got married, so they had their own families depending on them. I had seven people relying on me, so I worked in a grocery store. #Quote by Martin Lel
Older quotes by Iain Reid
#7. I've been told these old barns are physical reminders of an older life, when things were different. They need upkeep. They need to be restored. It would be a tragedy if the one in this field is ablaze. Another barn lost. #Quote by Iain Reid
Older quotes by Tom Felton
#8. I can't wait to see how Dan and I will look when we are older. #Quote by Tom Felton
Older quotes by John Boyne
#9. Well, I'm not advocating it," I said. "I just mean that before we learn to feel afraid of things, our bodies know how to do them anyway. It's one of the more disappointing aspects of growing older. We fear more so we can do less. #Quote by John Boyne
Older quotes by Jacquelyn Frank
#10. Say my name," he countered, his hand wrapping around the irresistible length of her neck. This time it was he who whispered in her ear. "Say it."
"I do not know what it is," she said, her breath rushing out of her in an astounding rhythm.
"Yes, you do. I feel it. You only have to search for it inside of us." "Us" was the appropriate term. It was almost impossible in that moment for them to discern whose thoughts belonged to whom.
Gideon was the oldest of them all. There was no one older, so no one who had once known his power name could possibly be alive. His parents were dead. His Siddah were dead. If Legna discovered his name, the ramifications were inconceivably serious. He would be putting his very existence into her hands. He would be placing all of his power at her fingertips, gifting her with the potential for his absolute submission. Legna tried to step back from him, the shock of what he was offering her too much to bear. But he had made sure to have his hands on her and now kept her tight and close within them.
"I cannot," she whispered, her body beginning to shake. "No one should know that. No one. I am not strong enough to keep it, Gideon. Any male Mind Demon could take it from me!"
"You are stronger than you think, Neliss."
"Not strong enough. Please, do not ask this of me." She pushed at him, jerked herself backward, using the weight of her body to try and break free. He held her for a moment longer, looking deeply into her panic-st #Quote by Jacquelyn Frank
Older quotes by Melissa Palmer
#11. Nobody says when they're little, "Hey you know what, I think I'd like to be a basket case when I get older." Nobody sits down as a kid and hopes they can grow up to be a bitter, fall-down drunk or an agoraphobic doormat when they grow up. Everyone wants to be normal. But sometimes we don't have a choice. #Quote by Melissa Palmer
Older quotes by The Beautiful Girls
#12. This day is getting older.
In fading light, it's beautiful.
This wind is blowing colder,
and too soon I'll feel its pull.
So sturdy up, sturdy up your heart,
for the road is long ahead.
I'll be with you even though we're apart,
but your road is yours to tread. #Quote by The Beautiful Girls
Older quotes by Georg C. Lichtenberg
#13. It is a sure evidence of a good book if it pleases us more and more as we grow older. #Quote by Georg C. Lichtenberg
Older quotes by Luke Hartwell
#14. You guys shouldn't fight. Ever. I'm sorry about what I said. I didn't mean it. Just don't fight again."
There was more behind the words, I knew. If Teddy had been older, he would have said more. But at fourteen, that was all he knew to say. It was enough. #Quote by Luke Hartwell
Older quotes by Kay Panabaker
#15. My whole thing is that often times when teenagers are about 18, 19, 20, 21, they get this mentality that they have to be old, they have to appear older, they can no longer be seen as a high schooler, they need to be seen as mid-20s all of a sudden even though they're only, like, 20. I'm the opposite of that. #Quote by Kay Panabaker
Older quotes by Celia Mcmahon
#16. My cousin. His name is Abel. He is two years older than I. Next to my father, he is dearest to my heart. #Quote by Celia Mcmahon
Older quotes by Hope Solo
#17. With each year that's gone by, and as I grow up and get older, I've become more mature, of course, but you have a sense of who you are, and you find confidence in that. #Quote by Hope Solo
Older quotes by Shaquille O'Neal
#18. I'm getting older. I'm getting sexier. I'm getting meaner. I can still do what I do. #Quote by Shaquille O'Neal
Older quotes by Garth Nix
#19. There is a very big difference between writing for children and writing for young adults. The first thing I would say is that 'Young Adult' does not mean 'Older Children', it really does mean young but adult, and the category should be seen as a subset of adult literature, not of children's books. #Quote by Garth Nix
Older quotes by Francesca Marciano
#20. Maybe that's what happens with age, I thought. All your life you force yourself to forget people who have hurt you, but as you get older and weaker their memory surfaces again, like a bubble in the water. You have to surrender, because you feel to tired to fight it and push it down again. And maybe, unexpectedly, you find out that instead, of revamping your anger, those memories produce an unexpected sweetness. #Quote by Francesca Marciano
Older quotes by A.A. Milne
#21. Whereas men of an older school, like myself, smoke for the pleasure of smoking, men of this school smoke for the pleasure of pipe-owning-of selecting which of their many white-spotted pipes they will fill with their specially blended tobacco, of filling the one so chosen, of lighting it, of taking it from the mouth to gaze lovingly at the white spot and thus letting it go out, of lighting it again and letting it go out again, of polishing it up with their own special polisher and putting it to bed, and then the pleasure of beginning all over again with another white-spotted one. #Quote by A.A. Milne
Older quotes by Aleksandar Hemon
#22. I do not know how old I was when I learned to play chess. I could not have been older than eight, because I still have a chessboard on whose side my father inscribed, with a soldering iron, "Saša Hemon 1972." I loved the board more than chess - it was one of the first things I owned. Its materiality was enchanting to me: the smell of burnt wood that lingered long after my father had branded it; the rattle of the thickly varnished pieces inside, the smacking sound they made when I put them down, the board's hollow wooden echo. I can even recall the taste - the queen's tip was pleasantly suckable; the pawns' round heads, not unlike nipples, were sweet. The board is still at our place in Sarajevo, and, even if I haven't played a game on it in decades, it is still my most cherished possession, providing incontrovertible evidence that there once lived a boy who used to be me. #Quote by Aleksandar Hemon
Older quotes by E.W. Howe
#23. The only thing some people do is get older. #Quote by E.W. Howe
Older quotes by Robert Orben
#24. Older people shouldn't eat health food, they need all the preservatives they can get. #Quote by Robert Orben
Older quotes by Cher
#25. There is only one value to having the look you have when you are young and no value to the look you have when you are older. #Quote by Cher
Older quotes by Selena Gomez
#26. I maybe had a first love and had my heart broken, but reflecting on it, I don't think that was love. I think as I'm getting older and having more in-depth relationships, maybe I'll experience it. At the moment, I don't know, exactly, if I've been in love. #Quote by Selena Gomez
Older quotes by Hope Jahren
#27. I knew that before noon I would be told that my discovery was not special. An older and wiser scientist would tell me that, in fact, what I had seen was something that he himself might have assumed. While he explained that my observation wasn't a true revelation, only a confirmation of what should have been an obvious guess, I listened politely. It didn't matter what he said. Nothing could alter the overwhelming sweetness of briefly holding a small secret that the universe had earmarked just for me. I knew instinctively that if I was worthy of a small secret, I might someday be worthy of a big one. By #Quote by Hope Jahren
Older quotes by Kaui Hart Hemmings
#28. Where are their mothers? Kids are so free here. It makes them seem older, more capable, coordinated, but wild. #Quote by Kaui Hart Hemmings
Older quotes by Mechai Viravaidya
#29. When you start learning how to give when you're young, when you get older it is second nature. Just like stealing. Start young and you keep on stealing forever. Ask my politicians. #Quote by Mechai Viravaidya
Older quotes by Leo Tolstoy
#30. Konstantin Levin regarded his brother as a man of immense intellect and culture, as generous in the highest sense of the word, and possessed of a special faculty for working for the public good. But in the depths of his heart, the older he became, and the more intimately he knew his brother, the more and more frequently the thought struck him that this faculty of working for the public good, of which he felt himself utterly devoid, was possibly not so much a quality as a lack of something - not a lack of good, honest, noble desires and tastes, but a lack of vital force, of what is called heart, of that impulse which drives a man to choose someone out of the innumerable paths of life, and to care only for that one. The better he knew his brother, the more he noticed that Sergey Ivanovitch, and many other people who worked for the public welfare, were not led by an impulse of the heart to care for the public good, but reasoned from intellectual considerations that it was a right thing to take interest in public affairs, and consequently took interest in them. Levin was confirmed in this generalization by observing that his brother did not take questions affecting the public welfare or the question of the immortality of the soul a bit more to heart than he did chess problems, or the ingenious construction of a new machine. #Quote by Leo Tolstoy
Older quotes by Serena Williams
#31. I definitely want to have kids one day. That's something I've always wanted since as long as I could remember. And the older I get, the more I'm like, "I'm too young!" #Quote by Serena Williams
Older quotes by Nicolas Barreau
#32. When you get a little older, there comes a time when you realise thats whats called happiness consists only of individual lovely moments, those special times that you remember later on. #Quote by Nicolas Barreau
Older quotes by Anna Neagle
#33. Naturally enough when I was a young dancer, I was terribly anxious to get ahead, and to get ahead quickly. I was impatient with all those older people who talked of the long grind to the top, who turned me down for jobs I knew I could do. #Quote by Anna Neagle
Older quotes by Kurt Browning
#34. Michael Weiss and Todd Eldredge and I all competed against each other. Even though I'm older than them, we did cross over a little bit. #Quote by Kurt Browning
Older quotes by Michael Hyatt
#35. When we are young, parents and teachers tell us we can do anything and become whatever we want. But as we grow older, these same people tell us we must be more realistic. #Quote by Michael Hyatt
Older quotes by Gemma Files
#36. Rhythm becoming thought, thought becoming memory; memory, which tends to shuck itself, to peel away. You get older, look back through a child's tunnel vision, and realize you never knew the whole that tied the details together. You were just along for the ride, moving from experience to experience, a flat spectacle, some kind of guideless tour. You remember--or think you remember--what happened, but not where, or why. What you did, but not with who. Details fade. People's names get lost in the white noise. #Quote by Gemma Files
Older quotes by Allen Steele
#37. We make stupid mistakes when we're young; we do our best to make amends for them as we get older. We survive by learning; by learning we survive. Such is life. So be it. #Quote by Allen Steele
Older quotes by Georg Cantor
#38. In particular, in introducing new numbers, mathematics is only obliged to give definitions of them, by which such a definiteness and, circumstances permitting, such a relation to the older numbers are conferred upon them that in given cases they can definitely be distinguished from one another. As soon as a number satisfies all these conditions, it can and must be regarded as existent and real in mathematics. Here I perceive the reason why one has to regard the rational, irrational, and complex numbers as being just thoroughly existent as the finite positive integers. #Quote by Georg Cantor
Older quotes by Lauren Cohan
#39. I went for an audition, which was shrouded in all kinds of secrecy to keep the storyline under wraps, and 5 days later I was in Atlanta and 700 years older. #Quote by Lauren Cohan
Older quotes by Imogen Cunningham
#40. When People magazine called me, I did the job on Ansel. I'm older than Ansel and he has to mind me. #Quote by Imogen Cunningham
Older quotes by Debbie Moon
#41. When i'm older, when no one cares about what I do, i'll find you. #Quote by Debbie Moon
Older quotes by Anna Quindlen
#42. In the family sandwich, the older people and the younger ones can recognize one another as the bread. Those in the middle are, for a time, the meat. #Quote by Anna Quindlen
Older quotes by Tom Rooney
#43. Few promises are more sacred than the ones we make to older Americans. #Quote by Tom Rooney
Older quotes by Derek Hough
#44. AN ALKALINE DIET

The pH level measures how acid or alkaline something is. Your blood is slightly alkaline, with a pH between 7.35 and 7.45, and your stomach is very acidic, with a pH of 3.5 or below, so it can break down food. Most of the foods we eat release either an acid or an alkaline base in the blood. Acidified body cells become weak, which can lead to unhealthy conditions and diseases. They are robbed of the oxygen and energy needed to support a strong and healthy immune system.
I incorporate alkaline foods into my diet every day, and I feel like my energy is soaring. Food literally acts like a battery for the body. Every living thing on this planet is made up of energy, and this includes your food. This energy can be measured in megahertz. Chocolate cake only provides 1 to 3 MHz of energy, while raw almonds have 40 to 50 MHz and green vegetables have 70 to 90 MHz. So if you need 70 MHz of energy on a daily basis to function and you live off junk food and soda, you are creating an energy-deficit crisis in your body.
People say it's expensive to eat healthily. Here's how I see it: you're going to pay either way. Either you're going to pay now for the good foods and feel alive and have a clear mind. Or you'll save some money now and pay for medicine and hospital bills later. I used to make excuses: I'm getting older, that's why I feel so tired all the time. But now I know it doesn't have to be that way. You have to make the conscious decision to nour #Quote by Derek Hough
Older quotes by Rick Moody
#45. Words are the oldest information storage and retrieval system ever devised. Words are probably older than the cave paintings in France, words have been here for tens of thousands of years longer than film, moving pictures, video, and digital video, and words will likely be here after those media too. When the electromagnetic pulse comes in the wake of the nuclear blast? Those computers and digital video cameras and videotape recorders that are not melted outright will be plastic and metal husks used to prop open doors. Not so with the utterances of tongues. Words will remain, and the highly complicated and idiosyncratic accounts assembled from them will provide us with the dark news about the blast. The written word will remain, scribbled on collapsed highway overpasses, as a testament to love and rage, as evidence of the wanderers in the ruin. #Quote by Rick Moody
Older quotes by Hank Bracker
#46. Weston, having been born in Chicago, was raised with typical, well-grounded, mid-western values. On his 16th birthday, his father gave him a Kodak camera with which he started what would become his lifetime vocation. During the summer of 1908, Weston met Flora May Chandler, a schoolteacher who was seven years older than he was. The following year the couple married and in time they had four sons.
Weston and his family moved to Southern California and opened a portrait studio on Brand Boulevard, in the artsy section of Glendale, California, called Tropico. His artistic skills soon became apparent and he became well known for his portraits of famous people, such as Carl Sandburg and Max Eastman. In the autumn of 1913, hearing of his work, Margrethe Mather, a photographer from Los Angeles, came to his studio, where Weston asked her to be his studio assistant. It didn't take long before the two developed a passionate, intimate relationship. Both Weston and Mather became active in the growing bohemian cultural scene in Los Angeles. She was extremely outgoing and artistic in a most flamboyant way. Her bohemian sexual values were new to Weston's conventional thinking, but Mather excited him and presented him with a new outlook that he found enticing. Mather was beautiful, and being bisexual and having been a high-class prostitute, was delightfully worldly. Mather's uninhibited lifestyle became irresistible to Weston and her photography took him into a new and exciting art form. #Quote by Hank Bracker
Older quotes by Beth Fantaskey
#47. You will not address me as if I'm not even here - unless you want to join Lucius in the dungeons. And then we'll see how long you last without blood, because you are two hundred years older and nowhere near as strong as my husband. #Quote by Beth Fantaskey
Older quotes by H. Jon Benjamin
#48. I need to lose some weight. I'm getting really fat. But I'm getting older, and I just can't stop eating wonderful food. Rich, wonderful food. #Quote by H. Jon Benjamin
Older quotes by Mark Twain
#49. The older I get, the more clearly I remember things that never happened. #Quote by Mark Twain
Older quotes by Zadie Smith
#50. Her beauty was not a sharp, cold commodity. She smelled musty, womanly, like a bundle of your favourite clothes... She wore her sexuality with an older woman's ease, and not (as with most of the girls Archie had run with in the past) like an awkward purse, never knowing how to hold it, where to hang it or when to just put it down. (~of Clara Bowden) #Quote by Zadie Smith
Older quotes by Kasie West
#51. My older brother, Lucas, is twenty and away at college."
"Those are pretty normal names."
"Normal?"
"No Chets or Wellingtons or anything."
He raises one eyebrow. "Do you know any Wellingtons?"
"Of course not, but you probably do."
"No, actually I don't. #Quote by Kasie West
Older quotes by Scott Foley
#52. The older I get, the more I become an apple pie, sparkling cider kind of guy. #Quote by Scott Foley
Older quotes by Harper Lee
#53. Older Scout: [narrating] Neighbors bring food with death, and flowers with sickness, and little things in between. Boo was our neighbor. He gave us two soap dolls, a broken watch and chain, a knife, and our lives. #Quote by Harper Lee
Older quotes by Kris Kristofferson
#54. I think I'm a much better father as an older man than I was with my first kids. Occasionally, I have to yell at the little guys, but they don't take me seriously. 'Listen to the old guy,' they say. 'Isn't he great? He's mad.' #Quote by Kris Kristofferson
Older quotes by Samuel Snoek-Brown
#55. Tastes change, Cherie. I find the older I get the more I like to be reminded of my youth. #Quote by Samuel Snoek-Brown
Older quotes by Eleanor Roosevelt
#56. For all of us, as we grow older, perhaps the most important thing is to keep alive our love of others and to believe that our love and interest are as vitally necessary to them as to us. This is what makes us keep on growing and refills the fountains of energy. #Quote by Eleanor Roosevelt
Older quotes by Patrick W. Galbraith
#57. When we get older we buy the things we really wanted as a kid and can finally afford and appreciate. But it all goes back to that original longing. --Ono Norihiro #Quote by Patrick W. Galbraith
Older quotes by Olivia Thirlby
#58. The older I get and the longer I live in New York City, the more I have the desire to go elsewhere and be surrounded by nature. #Quote by Olivia Thirlby
Older quotes by Lindsay Wagner
#59. As I got older and more educated about things like chemicals in food and how beef is processed, I simply stopped eating certain things because it felt like the right thing to do. #Quote by Lindsay Wagner
Older quotes by Denise Duhamel
#60. I still write what I need to write - but I can't deny that something has changed when I think about sending work out. Maybe it's just growing older and feeling more responsible to the world. #Quote by Denise Duhamel
Older quotes by Jerry Barber
#61. The older you get, the easier it is to shoot your age. #Quote by Jerry Barber
Older quotes by Debasish Mridha
#62. You are not getting older; you are getting wiser. #Quote by Debasish Mridha
Older quotes by Paulo Coelho
#63. When he looked into her dark eyes, and saw that her lips were poised between a laugh and silence, he learned the most important part of the language that all the world spoke - the language that everyone on earth was capable of understanding in their heart. It was love. Something older than humanity, more ancient than the desert. Something that exerted the same force whenever two pairs of eyes met #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Older quotes by Alec Baldwin
#64. In the film business, when you're young, you just want to work. But when you're older, it has more to do with who's involved with the project - who you're going to get in the boat with. #Quote by Alec Baldwin
Older quotes by Matthew Tobin Anderson
#65. Older teens tend to write to me and say, 'Thank you for not writing down to teenagers.' #Quote by Matthew Tobin Anderson
Older quotes by Nichole Chase
#66. A group of older women walked past, wearing fanny packs and large cameras around their necks.

...

"I think I'm going to get one of those." Weylin's voice was thoughtful as he watched the women jaywalk.

"One of what?" Ree cocked an eyebrow and smiled at her friend.

"I don't know, Wey-mand. I think they might be too much woman for you." Paden flashed a crooked grin.

"Har, har. I meant a fanny pack." Looking thoughtful, Weylin ignored thier expressions of disbelief.

"A...fanny pack?" Sophie was looking at Weylin as if he had lost his mind, but Ree noticed the corners of her mouth twitching.

"Yeah. Think about all the cool things I could carry in one." Completely unperturbed, Weylin stopped at the crosswalk and hit the button on the light post. "I could carry knives and some of those collapsible swords that Roland uses. Oh and snacks!"

Unable to control her laughter anymore, Ree leaned over and clutched her sides. "Snacks? Weylin, I think you might need to lie down. You obviously have a fever or something."

"You won't be saying that the next time we're out and you get a hankering for a pizza or some popcorn. I could even carry bottled water and little sanitizer wipes."

"How big of a fanny pack are you planning on getting? Paden raised an eyebrow.

...

"Oh, hell no! I am not eating food you've been carrying near your man-pickle. That is so not going to #Quote by Nichole Chase

#68. Joey, my older brother, had his own TV show in the '50s, along with Cathy Callahan. #Quote by William Devane
Older quotes by Martin Freeman
#69. Without sounding overly pompous about it, I don't really trust certainty in anything, actually. Especially as I get older. Except love. I'm certain of love, I guess. #Quote by Martin Freeman
Older quotes by Taya Kyle
#70. I thought about putting some tobacco dip in his casket. It had been a big part of his life. But since he'd decided to give up dipping a few weeks before…tobacco was out.
There was a part of me that wanted the mortician to arrange his fingers so he was flipping people the bird. Chris would have loved that. And many of the people who knew him would have roared at the joke--it was very Chris, a last practical joke.
But I'm sure some of the older family members wouldn't have seen the humor. Discretion won out.
Still, I couldn't send him off without some sort of off-color humor. Profanity and pranking were just too Chris to be ignored. So I went into this closet and found a gag T-shirt, the one that read, DO I LOOK LIKE A @#$#[email protected] PEOPLE PERSON?
He wore that to his grave under his plaid button-down shirt, a silent last guffaw. #Quote by Taya Kyle
Older quotes by Malka Ann Older
#71. There is nothing that suits us more than most of the world believing that their will is being carried out by governments that do exactly as they please. #Quote by Malka Ann Older
Older quotes by Marina Keegan
#72. She had the rare combination of being quiet and popular, a code that made her intimidating to younger, fashionable girls and mysterious to older, confident boys. #Quote by Marina Keegan
Older quotes by Jeannette Walls
#73. My older sister achieved her dream of being an artist. She's an illustrator living in Manhattan. #Quote by Jeannette Walls
Older quotes by Donna Tartt
#74. Joan of Arc had led armies when she was hardly older than Harriet. Yet, for Christmas last year, Harriet's father had given Harriet an insulting board game for girls called What Shall I Be? It was a particularly flimsy game, meant to offer career guidance but no matter how well you played, it offered only four possible futures: teacher, ballerina, mother, or nurse. #Quote by Donna Tartt
Older quotes by William Gibson
#75. I would like to design what people generally call streetwear. I'd like to dress skateboarders, or whatever the older equivalent of skateboarders are. I pay more attention to that stuff than anyone would ever imagine because I'm watching what the designers do. #Quote by William Gibson
Older quotes by Sarah Addison Allen
#76. You asked what the wallpaper was in Mom's old room. It's lilacs."
"Ah. It was always flowers, usually roses, when she was a little girl. It changed a lot as she got older. I remember once it was lightning bolts on a tar-black background. And then another time it was this scaly blue color, like a dragon's belly. She hated that one, but couldn't seem to change it. #Quote by Sarah Addison Allen
Older quotes by Laura Anderson Kurk
#77. On the best nights, he'd appear outside the bookstore window and wait for me to unlock the door. He usually hadn't had time to shower between doing things with cattle and horses and coming to find me, and he looked older than us and stronger than us. #Quote by Laura Anderson Kurk
Older quotes by Sarah Winman
#78. You said I could be anything I wanted when I was older', I said.
She smiled and said, 'And you can be. But it's not very easy to become Jewish.'
'I know,' I said forlornly, 'I need a number.'
And she suddenly stopped smiling. #Quote by Sarah Winman
Older quotes by Jed Diamond
#79. Middle age is such a low point for well-being; it's at the bottom of a U-shaped curve that shows greater happiness among the younger and older people. #Quote by Jed Diamond
Older quotes by Jackie French Koller
#80. So what do we do, dress up like orderlies and sneak him out in the laundry cart?"
"Something like that."
"Oh, c'mon, Spence, that routine is as old as the Three Stooges."
"Probably older," said Spence, laughing. "Actually I was thinking of something a little less dramatic."
"Like what?"
"Like just walking out with him."
Denny stared at Spence, then shook her head. "In one of the big hospitals in New York you might get away with that," she said, "but in a little tiny hospital like Down East Community, it'll never work."
"It might, if he's dressed like a woman," said Spence.
Denny thought for a minute, then nodded. "Maybe," she said. "But where are we going to get clothes to fit him? My mom and your mom are way too thin."
Spence smiled. "Miss Lizzie," he said.
Denny's eyes opened wide. "Miss Lizzie? Do you really think she'll do it?"
"She's waiting for us right now at the edge of town," said Spence. #Quote by Jackie French Koller
Older quotes by Brandon Flowers
#81. I was so young when the Killers started. I was 21. I'm proud of those songs, but there's no way I would write 'Somebody Told Me,' as I get older. Especially after having kids. #Quote by Brandon Flowers
Older quotes by Joaquin Sorolla
#82. The older I become, the more I realize that drawing is the most important of all the problems of picture-making. #Quote by Joaquin Sorolla
Older quotes by Kate Voegele
#83. My biggest advice for girls - and this is something that I wish I could have known when I was younger - is to have thick skin. It's something that you definitely develop when you get older, but when I first started, I was so obsessed with pleasing everybody. I wanted everybody to like me and to like my songs. #Quote by Kate Voegele
Older quotes by Virginia Woolf
#84. I enjoy the spring more than the autumn now. One does, I think, as one gets older. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Older quotes by Shari Graydon
#85. We need an army of white-haired, wild-eyed radicals cutting a swath against the sexism that crosses our paths. It is a good antidote to the larger community's apparent belief that older women are slightly dotty, grandmotherly, benign souls. #Quote by Shari Graydon
Older quotes by Willem Dafoe
#86. I think, as I've gotten older, I've been able to be more reckless with my choices, because practically speaking, you get less careful. Your choices become more instinctive, and you feel like if you make a mistake, it won't destroy you. #Quote by Willem Dafoe
Older quotes by James Blunt
#87. Will you be my shoulder when I'm gray and older? Promise me tomorrow starts with you. Getting high, running wild among the stars above. Sometimes it's hard to believe you remember me. #Quote by James Blunt
Older quotes by Miranda Neville
#88. He'd kept his figure despite being past his first youth. Pretty good for nearly forty.
Who was she fooling? She knew quite well that he was thirty-five and a half, exactly five years older than she. Their birthdays were two days apart. It was absurd the way trivial facts lingered in the memory, facts as unimportant as what she had for dinner on Tuesday. Except that she couldn't remember last week's menu and she was annoyingly aware of Max Quinton's preference for lamb over beef, for apple tart over syllabub. He preferred Shakespeare to the modern poets, the country to the town. #Quote by Miranda Neville
Older quotes by Michael Haneke
#89. To be perfectly honest, I think that as I'm growing older, I'm just growing more impatient. I'll be very happy if at some point people say, 'Michael's grown wiser and softer in his old age.' But we'll have to wait and see what my next project is. #Quote by Michael Haneke
Older quotes by Janette Oke
#90. And just as simply as that, it was over. She was no longer a student in the local town. She was a graduate. An adult. She thought she should feel something. Older.Wiser. But she felt nothing but a strange emptiness. An inner knowledge that she was now on the edge of the nest, ready to try her own wings #Quote by Janette Oke
Older quotes by George R R Martin
#91. The maester smiled ... Hush now, child, I'm much older than you. I can ... die as I please. #Quote by George R R Martin
Older quotes by David Gregory
#92. I set up playdates, and I'm a morning greeter for the car-pool line. I also make albums with the family photos. When the kids get older and go on their way, we'll have all those pictures to revel in. #Quote by David Gregory
Older quotes by Cassandra Reeder
#93. As a little girl I always expected that one day adventure would happen to me - someday a tornado would whisk me away to Oz, or I'd fall down a rabbit hole, or David Bowie would kidnap me and take me to his labyrinth where he'd sing me songs and feed me magic peaches. (I still sorta wish David Bowie would kidnap me, but that's beside the point.) As I get older, I realize you have to make adventure happen for yourself. I hope this cookbook helps you, dear reader, to make some tasty adventures for yourself - and maybe throw some really awesome LARP parties. #Quote by Cassandra Reeder
Older quotes by Margaret Cho
#94. I'm lucky that I have good genetics. Like you said, it just gets better as I get older. #Quote by Margaret Cho
Older quotes by John Banville
#95. I've always been fascinated by physics and cosmology. It gets more and more scary the older you get. #Quote by John Banville
Older quotes by Cassandra Danz
#96. The way to get a deciduous hedge for free is to ask a neighbor to let you take divisions from his shrubs. You can take ten or twenty sucker-like shoots with their roots attached before he will notice and start to feel like a sucker himself. Thank him profusely and suggest that you'd love to have him and the wife over to dinner sometime, but don't give a specific date. Perhaps in the winter, you might suggest, when there's not so much work to do in the yard.
... in about three to five years the little suckers will grow into an informal hedge whose height will depend on the type of shrub you have selected. I know three to five years is a long time when you're middle-aged and older. But what do you want? You've just glommed several hundred dollars' worth of shrubs for free, for heaven's sake. In three to five years your neighbor will have forgotten about that dinner, also. #Quote by Cassandra Danz
Older quotes by Lemony Snicket
#97. Klaus had known for all twelve of his years that his older sister found a hand on her shoulder comforting - as long as the hand was attached to an arm, of course. #Quote by Lemony Snicket
Older quotes by Julie James
#98. You said she works at an ice-cream shop around here, right?" He made a big show of wiping the sweat off his brow. "Come to think of it, a nice double cone would really hit the spot in this heat."

Zach's expression was one of pure teenage mortification. "Yeah, because that's exactly what will help my inability to talk to her - my older brother watching and critiquing all my moves."

"I thought we'd already established that you don't have any moves."

"Now that's funny. Picking on someone half your age. Hey, here's an idea: I'll introduce you to Paige as soon as I meet this so-called smart, witty, and hot woman you're supposedly seeing. Sounds a lot like one of those made-up girlfriends who live in Niagara Falls."

"She's real. I'm seeing her tonight, in fact." They hadn't decided their specific plans yet, but Brooke had texted him last night, asking if he was free.

"Wow. You actually, like, beamed when you said that."

"Get out of here," Cade scoffed. "I did not."

"What's her name?"

Cade opened his mouth to answer, then paused.

Zach grinned. "Worried you can't say it without beaming again?"

Ridiculous. "Her name is Brooke." He deliberately maintained a straight face

Zach made a big show of studying him, presumably looking for any sign of this alleged "beaming." He stepped closer and then, with a comically scrutinizing face, slowly looked at one side of Cade's fa #Quote by Julie James
Older quotes by Leven Rambin
#99. I feel a lot older than I am but at the same time I don't want to play too old on T.V. I still want to be young. I still want to be 20 and enjoy this period of my life where I still have that flexibility. #Quote by Leven Rambin
Older quotes by Matthew D. Lieberman
#100. If a stranger saying we are "dependable" activates the reward system, imagine what praise from a boss, a parent, or even an unaccomplished slightly older graduate student will do. Of course, we all know that praise is a good thing, as long as it isn't too unconditional, but until very recently, we had no idea that praise taps into the same reinforcement system in the brain that enables cheese to help rats learn to solve mazes. And positive social regard is a renewable resource. Rather than having less of something after using it, when we let others know we value them, both parties have more. #Quote by Matthew D. Lieberman
Older quotes by Michael Bassey Johnson
#101. Mother said, haven't you seen older boys of your age, that you should take your rotten hands and play with my son's penis?
I held my mouth, and i really stiffled a giggle. Now i understood the bloody vexation and the reckless act performed by our housegirl.
She was fondling my infant part, and i knew she was horny and lost in the act. #Quote by Michael Bassey Johnson
Older quotes by Kevin Kwan
#102. The larger the diamonds, the older the wife, the more the mistress. #Quote by Kevin Kwan
Older quotes by Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
#103. I think my dad, when he works with my older son, puts the same kind ofpressure on him that he put on me - that perfectionist pressure. And that can work in two ways: It can make you a perfectionist yourself, or it can eventually break you in the long run. #Quote by Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
Older quotes by Abram Joseph Ryan
#104. Some reckon their age by years, Some measure their life by art; But some tell their days by the flow of their tears And their lives by the moans of their hearts. #Quote by Abram Joseph Ryan
Older quotes by J.D. Vance
#105. He sent an older marine to supervise as I shopped for my first car so that I'd end up with a practical car, like a Toyota or a Honda, not the BMW I wanted. #Quote by J.D. Vance
Older quotes by Jill Davis
#106. It's the only real advantage to getting older. You get to say what you mean and stop apologizing. #Quote by Jill Davis
Older quotes by Gudjon Bergmann
#107. For reasons unknown, the philosophical aspect of the yoga movement has had to make way for the yoga fit revolution; today's image of a yogi is a slender and scantily clad young female doing postures on the cover of a bestselling magazine, whereas the older image was of an Indian man with long beard sitting in a cave wearing a loin cloth. #Quote by Gudjon Bergmann
Older quotes by Brett Kiellerop-Morris
#108. I'm not an ageist, and I'm not looking for a man in a certain restrictive age range, however I've found over the years that people younger than me tend to be immature. The problem with this is that, as I get older, all the good men have already been snapped up. #Quote by Brett Kiellerop-Morris
Older quotes by Michio Kaku
#109. Instead of being overwhelmed by the universe, I think that perhaps one of the deepest experiences a scientist can have, almost approaching a religious awakening, is to realize that we are children of the stars, and that our minds are capable of understanding the universal laws that they obey. The atoms within our bodies were forged on the anvil of nucleo-synthesis within an exploding star aeons before the birth of the solar system. Our atoms are older than the mountains. We are literally made of star dust. Now these atoms, in turn, have coalesced into intelligent beings capable of understanding the universal laws governing that event. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Older quotes by Scott Lynch
#110. Angry now? My, yes, you would be… angry that you fucked up. Angry that you're not as clever as you think. Angry that the gods gave lots of other people the same sort of brain they gave Locke Lamora. Quite the pisser, isn't it?...

'He doesn't rule his graveyard by logic, boy; he rules it by fear. Fear of him keeps the older sprats in line. Fear of them keeps little shits like you in line. Anything that undermines that fear is a threat to his position. Enter Locke Lamora waving the idiot flag and thinking himself so much cleverer than the rest of the world!'

'I really… I don't… think I'm cleverer than the rest of the world.'

'You did until three minutes ago. #Quote by Scott Lynch
Older quotes by Salman Khan
#111. The older you get, the better you have to look, the higher you have to kick, the harder you have to work. #Quote by Salman Khan
Older quotes by Jennifer Egan
#112. I find myself thinking more about the past as I get older ... maybe because there's just more of it to think about. At the same time, I'm less haunted by it than I was as a younger person. I guess that's probably the ideal: to reach a point where you have access to all of your memories, but you don't feel victimized by them. #Quote by Jennifer Egan
Older quotes by Amy Andrews
#113. His jerky breath hit her system like a drug and she was in thrall. Of his potency. And hers. She didn't want to stop. She wanted to keep going, keep touching him like this until he lost control. She wanted to bring him to his knees, this cocky young guy who called her baby and made her want things she hadn't even realized she'd been missing. #Quote by Amy Andrews
Older quotes by Sasha Pieterse
#114. I was home-schooled and I graduated super-early. But I've always had older friends, so I got to go to all their dances. I got the best of both worlds. I had the choice to go to prom with a friend of mine and I decided not to because I was filming very close to that. But red carpets and the 'G.B.F' prom were so much better. #Quote by Sasha Pieterse
Older quotes by James Bay
#115. I'm very close in age to my older brother, and we had a field at the end of the road where we could run around, climb trees, play football. #Quote by James Bay
Older quotes by Rebecca Makkai
#116. He said, "everyone knows how short life is. Fiona and I know it especially. But no one ever talks about how long it is. And it's-- does that make sense? Every life is too short, even the long ones, but some people's lives are too long as well. I mean-- maybe that won't make sense til you're older."

He stepped onto the escalator first, and he rode backward to face them.

He said, "if we could just be on earth at the same place and same time as everyone we loved, if we could be born together and die together, it would be so simple. And it's not. But listen: You two are on the planet at the same time. You're in the same place now. That's a miracle. #Quote by Rebecca Makkai
Older quotes by Katherine Schwarzenegger
#117. When I was younger, I played sports and went to camp. As I got older, my parents began to instill in us the importance of giving back to the community, especially those places around the world that are less fortunate than my very privileged life growing up in Los Angeles. #Quote by Katherine Schwarzenegger
Older quotes by Abbi Glines
#118. We had our thing. It is a really good memory but now we're older. Things change. #Quote by Abbi Glines
Older quotes by Martin Scorsese
#119. I'm in a different chapter of my life. As time goes by and I grow older, I find that I need to just be quiet and think. There have been periods when I've locked myself away for days, but now it's different - I'm married and we have a daughter who is in my office the whole time. #Quote by Martin Scorsese
Older quotes by Jackie Joyner-Kersee
#120. As you grow older and young people come up to you with their history books, you realize that some of the things I have been able to do have been impactful. But for me, I try to keep everything in perspective and stay humble. #Quote by Jackie Joyner-Kersee
Older quotes by Dawn French

Older quotes by Charles Yu
#122. Only, it's not an it. It's a her. A zombie. A woman. A zombie woman. She's older than Janine, closer to my age, maybe early thirties, missing a little bit of her face, but otherwise sort of pretty in a melancholy way. #Quote by Charles Yu
Older quotes by Kiersten White

Older quotes by Carl Jung
#124. Dreaming is a philogenetically older mode of thought. #Quote by Carl Jung
Older quotes by Colin Hay
#125. The thing with playing live is, most of the audience is in their 20s and 30s. If you're older than that, you don't tend to go out to shows anymore. So it's good if you can attract a younger audience because they've got the energy to get up off the sofa and go out. #Quote by Colin Hay
Older quotes by David Eddings
#126. Women are almost always angry with men for one reason or another. It's one of things you'll have to get used to, as you get older. #Quote by David Eddings
Older quotes by Alasdair MacIntyre
#127. Modern conservatives are for the most part engaged in conserving only older rather than later versions of liberal individualism. Their own core doctrine is as liberal and as individualist as that of self-avowed liberals. #Quote by Alasdair MacIntyre
Older quotes by Ian McKellen
#128. You might be surprised by how interested young people are in older people. #Quote by Ian McKellen

Older quotes by Ted Koppel
#130. It becomes increasingly easy, as you get older, to drown in nostalgia. #Quote by Ted Koppel
Older quotes by Philippa Gregory
#131. No, you look like the beauty you are, and you know it. You have that gift, which our mother had, of growing older and becoming more lovely. Your features have changed from being merely those of a pretty girl to being those of a beautiful woman with a face like a carving. When you are laughing and dancing with Edward, you could pass for twenty, but when you are still and thoughtful, you are as lovely as the statues they are carving in Italy. No wonder women loathe you. #Quote by Philippa Gregory
Older quotes by Chelsea Handler
#132. I was the youngest of six kids, and my brothers and sisters were kind of a lot older than me. And the one sister that was, like, in a close age range - she was five years older than me. She was my closest sister in age, and she was a loser. #Quote by Chelsea Handler
Older quotes by Anonymous
#133. But it must be remembered that Ben-Sira represents the older type of scribe, not the later Pharisaic scribe whose purview was more circumscribed and whose mental outlook was far narrower. It is the later type which we see portrayed in the Gospels. The older school of scribes, of which Ben-Sira was such an admirable representative, took a larger view of things; they did not restrict themselves to the purely / legal aspect of the moral code; their ethical teaching / was applied to all human activities; the scribe, that / is to say, was also a chacham or " wise man," whose ^ aim it was to show that wisdom, #Quote by Anonymous
Older quotes by James Corden
#134. I want to be Gary Barlow and peak when I'm 40. That's my plan - he's who I'm modeling myself on. Most people are completely beautiful when they're young, and then there's always a point when they get older where they say: 'Oh, what happened?!' #Quote by James Corden

Older quotes by Jim Trelease
#136. Which Country Has the Best Readers? One of the most comprehensive international reading studies was conducted by Warwick Elley for the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) in 1990 and 1991. Involving thirty-two countries, it assessed 210,000 nine- and fourteen-year-olds.22 Of all those children, which ones read best? For nine-year-olds, the four top nations were: Finland (569), the United States (547), Sweden (539), and France (531). But the U.S. position dropped to a tie for eighth when fourteen-year-olds were evaluated. This demonstrates that American children begin reading at a level that is among the best in the world, but since reading is an accrued skill and U.S. children appear to do less of it as they grow older, their scores decline when compared with countries where children read more as they mature. #Quote by Jim Trelease
Older quotes by Paul Neilan
#137. She was the sadistic older brother who holds you down and slaps your forehead over and over again, lets a string of spit fall until it almost hits your face and then slurps it up, over and over again. Only this older brother was fucking me. I'm telling mom. #Quote by Paul Neilan
Older quotes by Ian Botham
#138. You will attract the younger generation and they might well prove tougher than the older generation. What we are trying to do is to look at the future and see what we can do to bring some stability back to people's lives. #Quote by Ian Botham
Older quotes by Taffy Brodesser-Akner
#139. That was why you heard about people in their thirties and forties going to law school but never medical school. It wasn't just the time it would take to get licensed. It was the realization as you got older about how fallible you were in every aspect of your life. #Quote by Taffy Brodesser-Akner
Older quotes by Nikolas Schreck
#140. And eventually, he (Charles Manson) testified to an empty court, as Bugliosi had convinced the presiding judge Older, that Manson's hypnotic powers might convince the jury he was innocent. #Quote by Nikolas Schreck
Older quotes by Robin Hobb
#141. When we are children, we believe that our elders know all and that even when we cannot understand the world, they can make sense of it. Even after we are grown, in moments of fear or sorrow, we still turn instinctively to the older generation, hoping to finally learn some great hidden lesson about death and pain. Only to learn instead that the only lesson is that life goes on. #Quote by Robin Hobb
Older quotes by Keshia Knight Pulliam
#142. I think Mr. Cosby has always been very much an activist and a big proponent of African-American pride. That's how 'The Cosby Show' came about. I think in his older years, he has gotten a lot more direct and vocal about it. But I think he only wants the best for all of us. #Quote by Keshia Knight Pulliam
Older quotes by Shaquille O'Neal
#143. Somebody asked me about this the other day. A young Shaq and a young Penny, the young Shaq's going to take over. A medium Shaq and a young Kobe, the medium Shaq is going to take over. Now you've got an older Shaq and a young Dwyane; you step aside, you let him do his thing and you just do what's asked of you. #Quote by Shaquille O'Neal
Older quotes by Mark Batterson
#144. In the words of Harriet Doerr, "One of the best things about aging is being able to watch imagination overtake memory." So who's right? The neurologists? Or Harriet? The answer is both. As we age, either imagination overtakes memory or memory overtakes imagination. Imagination is the road less taken, but it is the pathway of prayer. Prayer and imagination are directly proportional: the more you pray the bigger your imagination becomes because the Holy Spirit supersizes it with God-sized dreams. One litmus test of spiritual maturity is whether your dreams are getting bigger or smaller. The older you get, the more faith you should have because you've experienced more of God's faithfulness. And it is God's faithfulness that increases our faith and enlarges our dreams. There is certainly nothing wrong with an occasional stroll down memory lane, but God wants you to keep dreaming until the day you die. #Quote by Mark Batterson
Older quotes by Dana Reinhardt
#145. And the person I really wanted to you meet,' he whispered as he pointed to the guitarist, 'is Finn'.
Finn was older. He had a beard, for one thing. Strawberry-colored and shaggy. He wore a wool cap over his strawberry hair. His guitar was covered in stickers and his fingers were filled with silver rings. #Quote by Dana Reinhardt
Older quotes by Martha Shirk

Older quotes by Beatriz Williams
#148. In despair, our heroine swallows poison, and reaches for some older, sturdier fellow to heal her, only to discover that she cannot absorb sturdiness through her skin, she cannot replace one person with another. She cannot actually make love by making love. #Quote by Beatriz Williams

Older quotes by Eraldo Banovac
#153. There is a simple rule regarding wisdom: those who have a superficial knowledge cannot be wise. On the contrary, wise people have broad knowledge. However, besides the acquired knowledge, wisdom arises from observation and contemplation over a longer period of time. Wisdom is, therefore, often the privilege of older people who have a broad knowledge and respectable experience. Feel free to ask such people for advice. #Quote by Eraldo Banovac
Older quotes by Joss Stirling
#154. But I've kept first of March as my birthday as I like to tease Zed about dating an older woman. And my parents wouldn't understand if I told them about the soulfinder bond and tried to change it."
"They don't know?"
"Well, I think they've picked up that there's something special between Zed and me but I'm not sure how I'd even start to explain to non-savants. I was exactly overjoyed when Zed filled me in about it all the first time."
"What did you do?"
"Thumped him with a shopping bag and told him he was a jerk."

Older quotes by Hailee Steinfeld
#157. Well I was eight years old, and I have an older cousin who is three years older than me and she was doing acting, commercials, and modeling at the time and ... to see my cousin doing that was really inspiring and I wanted to do it. So I went to my mom and I asked her if I could do it, and for the acting part of it, she made me study for a year. #Quote by Hailee Steinfeld

Older quotes by Emo Philips
#159. I used to think I knew everything, but older you get the more you see other areas. If you could read everything about both sides, you'll pretty much be in the middle again, which is the state you had when you were totally ignorant. So my theory is if you maintain total ignorance - which isn't easy, but I try - you'll be just as far ahead as if you'd spent days and days reading about the whole issue. And you have that much extra time to play Pac-man. #Quote by Emo Philips
Older quotes by David Foster Wallace
#160. But and so things are slow, and like you they have this irritating suspicion that any real satisfaction is still way, way off, and it's frustrating; but like basically decent kids they suck it up, bite the foil, because what's going on is just plain real; and no matter what we want, the real world is pretty slow, at present, for kids our age. It probably gets less slow as you get older and more of the world is behind you, and less ahead, but very few people of our generation are going to find this exchange attractive, I'll bet. #Quote by David Foster Wallace
Older quotes by Haruki Murakami

'Yeah,' I said, 'you get tired. #Quote by Haruki Murakami

Older quotes by Thomas S. Flowers
#164. Rebecca uttered a low dry laugh, not facetiously, but more like a stitch coming apart at the seam. A wound opened. Her eyes were opening to a world she had denied for so long. She looked up at Frank and knew, just like in the books, hatred, real hatred is a Gollum that hides under the mountain of our hearts. It buries itself deep underground where no light can touch. And it waits. Rebecca thought of Tolkien and Bilbo and Frodo and that old grey wizard, she thought that maybe they were right. Perhaps "there are older and fouler things in the deep places of the world - in the deep places of our hearts." And as she sat on the floor with Tom Johnson's Glock aimed at her husband's head, Rebecca looked into the space where his eyes should have been. She looked at what was now only darkness and felt something on the other side, something not her husband, looking back. #Quote by Thomas S. Flowers

Older quotes by Olivia Culpo
#167. I'd like to start off by saying that every experience no matter what it is, good or bad, you'll learn from it. That's just life. But something I've done I've regretted is probably picking on my siblings growing up, because you appreciate them so much more as you grow older. #Quote by Olivia Culpo
Older quotes by Hunter Hayes
#168. I always loved LeAnn Rimes and especially Clint Black for his soulfulness. As I've gotten older, my influences have broadened - John Mayer, Michael Buble, Stevie Wonder, Keith Urban, Stevie Ray Vaughn, the Beatles - all of these artists have somehow been a part of my development as a songwriter. #Quote by Hunter Hayes
Older quotes by Darren Aronofsky

Older quotes by Ian Millar
#170. My first Olympics was Munich in 1972. I am better now than I was then, in knowledge and experience. The age of top riders generally tends to be older than in other sports because it takes a lot of time to be consistent. #Quote by Ian Millar
Older quotes by Anna Banks
#171. She's amazing."
Galen turns to Dr. Milligan, who's standing beside him and staring at Emma as if she were floating in midair. "Yes, she is," Galen says.
Dr. Milligan looks at Galen, a knowing smile plastered on his face. "Looks like she's enchanted more than just the little fish. In fact, looks like you're worse off than any of them, my boy."
Galen shrugs. He's got nothing to hide from Dr. Milligan.
Dr. Milligan lets out his breath in a whistle. "What does Rayna say?"
"She likes her." The good doctor raises a thin gray brow. Galen sighs. "She likes her enough.."
"Well, can't ask for more than that, I suppose. Shall we, then?"
Galen nods. "Emma. Dr. Milligan is here."
Emma turns. And freezes. "You!" she chokes out. "You're Dr. Milligan?"
The older man bows his head. "Yes, young lady, I am. You remember me, then."
She nods, walking slowly toward them as if she smells a trap. "You tried to give me free season passes. You talked to me at the petting tank."
"Yes," he says. "Of course I offered you season passes. How else could I study your fascinating interaction with the specimens?"
She crosses her arms. "I didn't know I could talk to fish at the time. How did you?"
"At first I didn't," he says, closing the distance between them and gently taking her hand. "But when I saw your eye color, I knew you had to be Syrena. I remembered Galen telling me about that gift, but I never really believed it. Which is silly, I supp #Quote by Anna Banks

#172. Before Chris passed away, I'd volunteered to coach Angel's soccer team in our local recreational league. It was a commitment I vowed to keep. I was determined to show those little girls how to succeed on the soccer "pitch," as the field is sometimes called.
I may have gone a little overboard. I mean, how many six-year-old girls have the misfortune of being coached by the wife of a SEAL?
Day One:
"We start by running!" I shouted enthusiastically. "Everyone run around the park. Let's go."
"The soccer field, Mrs. Kyle?" asked a player.
"No! The entire complex. Come on!"
I'm guessing it was maybe five or six times as far as they'd ever run before--or maybe ten or twenty--and a good deal farther than many teams with considerably older players ran. But the girls were good sports about it. We built endurance and worked on drills, and we had fun--you never knew when the coach might grab one the of the players and twirl her around enthusiastically for doing a good job.
"I'm taking goal," I'd say when shooting practice wasn't going well. "Anyone who can hurt me gets an extra piece of candy!"
I gave out a lot of candy that afternoon.
We were a young team and a little rough at first, but we got better as we went. It was fun to watch the transition many of the girls made over the length of the season--they not only got in better shape and learned to play soccer better, but they seemed more confident as well.
I will guarantee one thing: th #Quote by Taya Kyle
Older quotes by Roger Ebert
#173. Movies do not change, but their viewers do. When I saw La Dolce Vita in 1960, I was an adolescent for whom "the sweet life" represented everything I dreamed of: sin, exotic European glamor, the weary romance of the cynical newspaperman. When I saw it again, around 1970, I was living in a version of Marcello's world; Chicago's North Avenue was not the Via Veneto, but at 3 a.m. the denizens were just as colorful, and I was about Marcello's age.

When I saw the movie around 1980, Marcello was the same age, but I was 10 years older, had stopped drinking, and saw him not as a role model but as a victim, condemned to an endless search for happiness that could never be found, not that way. By 1991, when I analyzed the film a frame at a time at the University of Colorado, Marcello seemed younger still, and while I had once admired and then criticized him, now I pitied and loved him. And when I saw the movie right after Mastroianni died, I thought that Fellini and Marcello had taken a moment of discovery and made it immortal. #Quote by Roger Ebert
Older quotes by Sarah Smarsh
#174. ...the older I get, the less I think what side of a divide you're born on has much to do with who or what you are. "City" and "country" is a dichotomy that predates the United States by centuries. What's particular about Americans is the way we move, along highways across big stretches of earth, the place we think will do right by us, the place we hope we might belong. #Quote by Sarah Smarsh
Older quotes by Gail Sheehy
#175. Be willing to shed parts of your previous life. For example, in our 20s, we wear a mask; we pretend we know more than we do. We must be willing, as we get older, to shed cocktail party phoniness and admit, 'I am who I am.' #Quote by Gail Sheehy
Older quotes by Jedediah McClure
#176. A few years ago, a couple of young men from my church came to our home for dinner. During the course of the dinner, the conversation turned from religion to various world mythologies and we began to play the game of 'Name That Character." To play this game, you pick a category such as famous actors, superheroes or historical characters. In turn, each person describes events in a famous character's life while everyone else tries to guess who the character is. Strategically you try to describe the deeds of a character in such a way that it might fit any number of characters in that category. After three guesses, if no one knows who your character is, then you win.

Choosing the category of Bible Characters, we played a couple of fairly easy rounds with the typical figures, then it was my turn. Now, knowing these well meaning young men had very little religious experience or understanding outside of their own religion, I posed a trick question. I said, "Now my character may seem obvious, but please wait until the end of my description to answer." I took a long breath for dramatic effect, and began, "My character was the son of the King of Heaven and a mortal woman." Immediately both young men smiled knowingly, but I raised a finger asking them to wait to give their responses.

I continued, "While he was just a baby, a jealous rival attempted to kill him and he was forced into hiding for several years. As he grew older, he developed amazing powers. Among these #Quote by Jedediah McClure

Older quotes by Laura Bates
#178. This combination of ageism and sexism was also blatant in the Boston Herald's treatment of sixty-three-year-old Elizabeth Warren, whose 2012 Senate bid it sought to undermine by repeatedly dubbing her "Granny" in its pages, as if to imply that an older woman could not possibly be trusted with political responsibility. #Quote by Laura Bates

Older quotes by Tommy Wallach
#181. I think that kids have a knack for detecting happiness, but they lose it as they get older. They have to. Otherwise they'd notice how unhappy everybody else is, and they'd never be able to be happy themselves. #Quote by Tommy Wallach
Older quotes by Jesmyn Ward
#182. There's things that move a man. Like currents of water inside. Things he can't help. Older I got, the more I found it true. What's in Stag is like water so black and deep you can't see the bottom. #Quote by Jesmyn Ward

Older quotes by Daphne Du Maurier
#185. We know one another. This is the present. There is no past and no future. Here I am washing my hands, and the cracked mirror shows me to myself, suspended as it were, in time; this is me, this moment will not pass.
And then I open the door and go to the dining-room, where he is sitting waiting for me at a table, and I think how in that moment I have aged, and passed on, how I have advanced one step towards an unknown destiny.
We smile, we choose our lunch, we speak of this and that, but - I say to myself-I am not she who left him five minutes ago. She has stayed behind. I am another woman, older, more mature ... #Quote by Daphne Du Maurier
Older quotes by Susan Sontag
#186. Most men experience getting older with regret, apprehension. But most women experience it even more painfully: with shame. Aging is a man's destiny, something that must happen because he is a human being. For a woman, aging is not only her destiny ... it is also her vulnerability. #Quote by Susan Sontag

#187. To me, feeling good about yourself as you get older is all about your attitude - if you think you're old, you'll feel old. #Quote by Lulu
Older quotes by Tom Noonan
#188. When I was a little kid, no matter what my parents told me, I would always argue - even if I agreed with them. And I've always been a show-off. As I've gotten older, I've found ways to be more subtle about it, but that's the way I am. I suppose that has something to do with why I write and direct. #Quote by Tom Noonan

Older quotes by Laurell K. Hamilton
#193. Grimes believed in what he did, with no doubts. Though he was older than me by over a decade, I suddenly felt old. Some things mark your soul, not in years but in blood and pain and selling off parts of yourself to get the bad guys, until you finally look in the mirror and aren't sure which side you're on anymore. There comes a point when having a badge doesn't make you the good guy, it just makes you one of the guys. I needed to be one of the good guys, or what the hell was I doing? #Quote by Laurell K. Hamilton

Older quotes by Dalton Trumbo
#195. He looked down at a tired face that was only fifty-one years old. He looked down and thought dad I feel lots older than you. I was sorry for you dad. Things weren't going well and they never would have gone well for you and it's just as good you're dead. People've got to be quicker and harder these days than you were dad. Goodnight and good-dreams. I won't forget you and I'm not as sorry for you today as I was yesterday. I loved you dad goodnight. #Quote by Dalton Trumbo

Older quotes by Brian Doyle
#197. When young we think there will come one person who will savor and sustain us always; when we are older we know this is the dream of a child, that all hearts finally are bruised and scarred, scored and torn, repaired by time and will, patched by force of character, yet fragile and rickety forevermore, no matter how ferocious the defense and how many bricks you bring to the wall. #Quote by Brian Doyle
Older quotes by Jane Green
#198. Secrets become harder to keep the older you get. The things you think you can suppress, those idiosyncrasies and fantasies you hope no one will ever discover, become harder and harder to hide as the years advance.
Partly it is maturity-the fear of discovery grows smaller, less significant, for you learn that none of us is perfect, that human nature is flawed, that life twists and turns in all sorts of unexpected ways and it is okay to end up in a different place to where you expected. #Quote by Jane Green

Older quotes by Donna Tartt
#200. I did not think I could stand a Christmas at my parents' house, with a plastic tree and no snow and the TV going constantly. It was not as if my parent were so anxious to have me, either. In recent years they had fallen in with a gabby, childless couple, older than they were, called the MacNatts. Mr MacNatt was an auto-parts salesman; Mrs MacNat was shaped like a pigeon and sold Avon. #Quote by Donna Tartt
