AGE AND WISDOM Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Water-colours of Marcel Reynaert
  • 2. Getting older is the only way to live long.
  • 3. The age of maturity is that age at which one is still young but is much more resourceful.
  • 4. What most torments me about the foolishness of my youth, is not the crazy things I have done...but the fact that I can’t go back and do them again.
  • 5. To get old is to go from passion to compassion.
  • 6. Many people never reach eighty because they waste time trying to stay at forty forever.
  • 7. At twenty, desire rules, at thirty, reason rules, and at forty, it’s time for good sense and judgement.
  • 8. Whoever is not beautiful at twenty, strong at thirty, rich at forty, nor wise at fifty, will never be beautiful or strong or rich or wise.
  • 9. When we pass sixty, there are fewer things that we think are absurd.
  • 10. Young people think the old are ridiculous. The old know that the young are ridiculous.
  • 11. A mature person goes back to find the serenity once enjoyed as a child
  • 12. Nothing passes by as quickly as the years.
  • 13. When I was young I was told “You’ll see when you’re fifty”. I’ve passed fifty but I don’t see anything .
  • 14. In the eyes of youth there burns a flame. In the eyes of the old there shines a light.
  • 15. The initiative of youth and the experience of the older each have equal value.
  • 16. There is a small child inside each one of us.
  • 17. Each age calls for it’s own appropriate behavior.
  • 18. Young people travel in groups, adults travel in pairs, and old people walk alone.
  • 19. Happy the one who was young as a youth, and happy the one who is wise in old age.
  • 20. We all want to grow old, and we all want to deny we have arrived there.
  • 21. WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND ABOUT THE PASSING YEARS - HOW TO LIVE THEM, AND NOT JUST ACCUMULATE THEM,
  • 22. Musica: Roger Williams THE END
