Thought for the day

April 30, 2009

“In mirrors and especially in photographs, I notice that I have grown old. But it is what is young in me that notices it. It is a young man who sees an old one. He is amazed– without bitterness and with respect, the way youth regards old age among noble people (in China, for instance). My youth respects my old age. My old age protects my youth. That is why I am at peace.”

Jean Cocteau
