Age Doesn't Matter Unless You're a Cheese: Wisdom from Our Elders

by Kathryn Petras, Ross Petras
 

It's ill-becoming for an old broad to sing about how bad she wants it. But occasionally we do. -Lena Horne

"I take a simple view of living. It is: Keep your eyes open and get on with it." -Laurence Olivier

"The only sin is mediocrity." -Martha Graham

"When I was young, I found out that the big toe always ends up making a hole in a sock. So I stopped

Overview

It's ill-becoming for an old broad to sing about how bad she wants it. But occasionally we do. -Lena Horne

"I take a simple view of living. It is: Keep your eyes open and get on with it." -Laurence Olivier

"The only sin is mediocrity." -Martha Graham

"When I was young, I found out that the big toe always ends up making a hole in a sock. So I stopped wearing socks." -Albert Einstein

"Go out on a limb. That's where the fruit is."-Jimmy Carter

Full of surprise, insight, humor, perspective, celebration, inspiration, and a kind of offhand, poignant poetry, Age Doesn't Matter Unless You're a Cheese-title courtesy of Billie Burke-shares hundreds of the best things men and women over sixty have said about how to love, work, laugh, and live. Collected by authors with a perfect ear for quotes, Kathryn and Ross Petras, Age Doesn't Matter brings together Albert Einstein's equation for happiness, Colette on the virtues of astonishment, and Julia Child's secret of longevity: "Red meat and gin."
