Famous quotes containing the word older:

    Ah, but I was so much older then,
    I’m younger than that now.
    Bob Dylan [Robert Allen Zimmerman] (b. 1941)

    Our Germany’s dead. However hard this may be for some of us older people, it’s a blessing for our children. Our children grew up against new backgrounds, new horizons. And they are free. Free to grow up as children. Free to run and to laugh without being forced into uniforms. Without being forced to march up and down streets, singing battle songs.
    Emeric Pressburger (1902–1988)

    She is older than the rocks among which she sits; like the vampire, she has been dead many times, and learned the secrets of the grave.
    Walter Pater (1839–1894)
