With a new familiarity and a flesh-creeping homeliness entirely of this unreal, materialistic world, where all sentiment is coarsely manufactured and advertised in colossal sickly captions, disguised for the sweet tooth of a monstrous baby called the Public, the family as it is, broken up on all hands by the agency of feminist and economic propaganda, reconstitutes itself in the image of the state.

With age come the inner, the higher life. Who would be forever young, to dwell always in externals?
– Elizabeth Cady Stanton, O Magazine, October 2003
With Age comes the Experience and Expertise. Most importantly, it empowers one with a clear vision to see through the hour glass of life, as more sand has already escaped through it with time. Like an early morning dream, life becomes brighter, clearer, and much less mysterious the longer one lives. It's also the wonderful phase of crisp creativity and innovative inventions, in my view, because even the crooked paths start to appear straighter the longer one travels on those. Just like wine, even people mature with age, and offer their best to the world, more so than ever before. Cheers to Age, and exceptional Experience that comes with it!
– Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate

Every achievement is a bird on the wing.
– Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.

With coarse rice to eat, with water to drink, and my bended arm for a pillow - I have still joy in the midst of these things. Riches and honors acquired by unrighteousness are to me as a floating cloud.
– Confucius
With Congress, every time they make a joke it's a law, and every time they make a law it's a joke.
