Maturity and Aging
“I'm talking about when you're nearer the end of your life than the beginning. Now what do you think you think about then? The future? In the future I'm going to do this? Become that? What future? No. What you think is, ‘How will I be regarded in the end?’”
“Seventy-five years. That's how much time you get if you're lucky. Seventy-five years. Seventy-five winters, seventy-five springtimes, seventy-five summers, and seventy-five autumns. When you look at it like that, it's not a lot of time, is it? Don't waste them. Get your head out of the rat race and forget about the superficial things that pre-occupy your existence and get back to what's important now.”
“I always think that I’m still this 13-year old boy that doesn’t really know how to be an adult, pretending to live my life, taking notes for when I’ll really have to do it.”
"Bicker, bicker, bicker, makes a gal age quicker."
“Childhood’s over the moment you know you’re going to die.”
“Somewhere around twenty-five, bizarre becomes immature.”
“I'm sure that we can handle this situation maturely, just like the responsible adults that we are. Isn't that right, Mr. Poopy Pants?"
“The older the violin, the sweeter the music.”
“Time marches on and sooner or later you realize it is marching across your face.”
"The bed may be magic but the mirror isn't."
