 Grow old with me.
The best is yet to be!

    As for old age, embrace it and love it. The gradually declining years
                are among the sweetest in a man's life. (Seneca)




Each part of life has its own pleasures. Each has its own abundant harvest, to
be garnered in season. We may grow old in body, but we need never grow old
                            in mind and spirit. (Cicero)
                                   -2-




    Many blessings do the advancing years bring with them. (Horace)




 One can savor sights and sounds more deeply when one gets really old.
It may be the last time you see a sunset, a tree, the snow, or know winter.
The sea, a lake, all become as in childhood, magical and a great wonder:
then seen for the first time, now perhaps for the last. Music, bird songs,
    the wind, the waves: One listens to tones with deeper delight and
                        appreciation. (Helen Newaring)
                               -3-




It is magnificent to grow old, if one keeps young. (Harry Fosdick)




 Whom the gods love die young no matter how long they live.
                         (Elbert Hubbard)
                                     -4-




Though it sounds absurd, it is true to say I felt younger at sixty than I felt at
                          twenty. (Ellen Glasgow)




 To resist the frigidity of old age one must combine the body, mind and
the heart. And to keep these in parallel vigor one must exercise, study
                       and love. (Charles de Bonstetten)
