Jean Paul Richter 1763 - 1825   Aging Quotes

Elderly people are like plants.  Whereas some go to seed, or to pot, others blossom in the most wonderful ways.  I believe beauty competitions should be held only for people over seventy years of age.  When we are young, we have the face and figure God gave us.  We did nothing to earn our good looks.  But as we get older, character becomes etched on our face.  Beautiful old people are works of art. Like a white candle in a holy place, so it the beauty of an aged face.

Let's in new light through chinks that time hath made.
