Growing Up Sayings and Quotes
You might carry the accumulation of years in your body and on your face, but you can stay young at heart and not let the years weigh on your spirit. Take these quotes about growing old. So many things are more important than your age. For instance… sights seen, wisdom gained, friendships made, the love of a growing family tree, this chance to be alive like you are. Perhaps we become aware of our age only at exceptional moments and most of the time we are ageless.
For centuries, writers have been trying to capture that feeling of aging and getting older. Sometimes it's a good feeling, coming to understandings about yourself and the world. Sometimes it's less than awesome, longing for the carefree joys of childhood, as nostalgic and misremembered as they may be. The feeling of growing up is all twisted and warped around the idea of identity, about who we are as people, which is one of the most common themes of literature of all time. And sometimes there are these writers who just dig right in to your soul and get at the very heart of what you're feeling.
