Stolen Quote: Age

I dread no more the first white in my hair, or even age itself, the easy shoe, the cane, the wrinkled hands, the special chair, time, doing this to me, may alter too, my sorrow, into something I can bear. ~ Edna St. Vincent Millay, American poet


I guess there’s a silver lining behind every silver lining.

    1. I don’t know how it is for you, but when I realize how old I’m getting I suppose there’s some sorrow for the good old days. But then again, when I realize that some of those good old days were actually bad old days, I’m glad they’re far behind me.
