Young Punks of Sixty

A   L   O   H   A  !
  Mountains look small -

Until you climb them.

"As one grows older, 
one becomes wiser 
and more foolish. "

Francois de La Rochefoucauld 

 “That the automobile
 has practically reached the limit 
of its development is suggested 
by the fact that
 during the past year 
no improvements of 
a radical nature 
have been introduced.”

Scientific American, 1909

" Old age 
is fifteen years 
older than I am. "

Oliver Wendell Holmes 


Young punks of sixty
alive alive O
Young punks of sixty
GO!  GO!  GO!
Young punks of sixty
maintaining the Flow;
Young punks of sixty
still so much to know!

Thanks for visiting
DO join us in comments,
                        Warmly, cloudia

"Do not worry
 about avoiding temptation. 
As you grow older 
it will avoid you. "

Joey Adams

That is a stitch about cars reaching their limit! Been thumbing through the 1909 issues of SA, have you? ;-)

60 isn't looking so bad if elderly is 15 years beyond. Perception and perspective, eh?

You always find such a great selection of quotations – I have copied quite a few from your blog into my Quotation Documents. I looked and the last two quotations I copied in there, but I don’t think they came from your blog as they were in French. They had been translated into French from the original Mark Twain. I shall re-translate them for you, but I don’t think I’ll use them on my blog as I would upset my US readers, even if it was one of their own who wrote them. Here -

“ Dieu a créé la guerre afin que les Américains apprennent la géographie » (God created war so that Americans would learn geography) - Marc Twain, and

"Ce fut admirable de découvrir l'Amérique mais ç'aurait été mieux de passer à côté" (It was wonderful to discover America, but it would have been more wonderful to miss it.) - Marc Twain. He certainly had a sense of humour!

sounds contradictory but i find it pretty much the truth....am getting older....

Willow said...

I had to laugh about the 1909 quote about cars !

Sandy Carlson said...

Thanks for making me smile. Let's hear it for the young at heart. May they (we) be merciful on the young who have aged too soon.
