In the book, The Twentieth Century, the authors record several great quotations about ageing. Ogden Nash once said, "Middle age is when you've met so many people that every new person you meet reminds you of someone else." Harvey Allen said, "The only time you really live fully is from thirty to sixty…No, the young are slaves to dreams; the old servants to regrets."
