I'm pretty young (21), but I think calling 'old' would be a honour. For me it relates often to attributes like 'wisdom' and 'life experience'. Something that I don't consider bad at all .

Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail...

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

I really like Will Rogers. My parents lived for a while in Claremore OK where Will Rogers is from. They have a college and a museum named after him. He was really quite a hand with a horse and a rope too. The event that really got him noticed was when he was performing with a wild west show at Madison Square Gardens. A bull jumped the fence and ended up in the crowd. Will jumped into the stads and roped it, threw it and tied it.

There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill

Very true but most 45-55 year olds would not appreciate being called "old".

Too many changes going on in that time frame for both male and female.

I don't think Will Rogers ever worried about aging as least he always seem ageless to me. Comments made by him are as good now as they were back then.

Yeah that's young.
But age comes with wisdom.
It also come with aching back and ect...
Most people under 10 (That I know) lie about there age. Try to be older. Live life young, I do. :)

Great post except for the age thing. These are quotes to be saved for our family quotation board -- anyone can post their philosophical thoughts or observations or jokes on it. Actually, I'll go do one right now!

I see.

Lets see if I'll be an exception once since I don't get this admiration that goes around youth in many western cultures very well.

Sure it's great when you've so many years in front of you, so many paths open and choosings to do, but it's also a huge source of stress. You know nothing (yes, as 21 I consider I've already gotten over this 'I know everything' stage and noticed I really know nothing ) and should still be able to take care of yourself and choose wisely.

Or then I go along other people and will have my crisis too.
