Beautiful Young People are Acts of Nature,
But Beautiful Old People are Works of Art...


How to know your growing old:
Your Children begin to look middle aged.
You've finally reached the top of the ladder only to find it's leaning against the wrong wall.
Your Mind makes contracts your body can't keep.

Of peace on earth, good-will to men!"
