  • Age is a subjective experience, as is time. ... A moment of ecstasy may seem to last beyond its objective measurement on the clock, so may days or weeks of idleness appear to vanish without a trace. It is the same with age — for what is age but time?

  • Ageism in language can be very subtle and may not be as immediately apparent as racist or sexist terms. Like its counterparts, however, it is equally necessary to rid our language of ageist expressions.

  • Affection, genuine and demonstrable, is the glue that holds a family together. Without it, family members become detached and break away from the central core.

  • Siblings. They can be the best of friends, and they can be the worst. No other peer can have as deep and thorough an understanding of our personal histories as can our siblings. If we've emerged from a strong, bonded family, the friendship of our brothers and sisters can be among the most valued relationships of our lifetimes.

  • Friends. Our lifeline to the world of sociability; without them we would lead very cloistered lives indeed.

  • A New Year begins / Doesn't it every day? / With each morning's waking / Doesn't it begin again? / Doesn't it? / And when your aching goes away / Doesn't hope begin again? / Doesn't it? / And each time we meet / Isn't it for the first time?
