Getting older isn’t easy but being young ain’t all that it’s cracked up to be. Instead of focusing on what’s lost with age, these quotes remind us that wisdom is a far better currency than beauty.

1. “Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.”
—Henry Ford

2. “Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”
—Mark Twain

3. “As I grow older, I pay less attention to what men say. I just watch what they do.”
—Andrew Carnegie

4. “Youth is the gift of nature, but age is a work of art.”
Stanislaw Jerzy Lec

5. “Age does not protect you from love. But love, to some extent, protects you from age.”
—Jeanne Moreau

6. “Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty.”
—Coco Chanel

7. “Probably the happiest period in life most frequently is in middle age, when the eager passions of youth are cooled, and the infirmities of age not yet begun; as we see that the shadows, which are at morning and evening so large, almost entirely disappear at midday.”
—Eleanor Roosevelt

8. “Aging is not lost youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength.”
—Betty Friedan

9. “There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.”
—Sophia Loren

10. “Old age, believe me, is a good and pleasant thing. It is true you are gently shouldered off the stage, but then you are given such a comfortable front stall as spectator.”
—Confucius

11. “You don’t stop laughing because you grow older. You grow older because you stop laughing.”
—Maurice Chevalier

12. “It is not how old you are, but how you are old.”
—Jules Renard

13. “Growing old is no more than a bad habit which a busy person has no time to form.”
—Andre Maurois
