For many years, thoughtful writers have encouraged us to keep looking forward:

"A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams."
– John Barrymore

"It’s like this. Father Time keeps pitching the years at us. We swing and miss at a few. We hit a few out of the park. We try not to take any called strikes."
Robert Brault

"Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many."
– Author Unknown

"In the central place of every heart is a recording chamber. So long as it receives a message of beauty, hope, cheer and courage — so long are you young. When the wires are all down and our heart is covered with the snow of pessimism and the ice of cynicism, then, and only then, are you grown old."
– Douglas MacArthur

"When grace is joined with wrinkles, it is adorable. There is an unspeakable dawn in happy old age."
– Victor Hugo
