Quote Of The Day — January 5, 2015

.
I do not think much of ages. People are people. What does it matter how old or young they are? It is a category, and I do not like categories. It is a sort of pigeonhole or a label.”

Louis L’Amour, (22 March 1908 – 10 June 1988)  “The Lonesome Gods”

    Very true. One can be brilliant or stupid at any age. The left proves it everyday.

    I agree. My girlfriend and I are going to try to explain that to the judge, right after her recess period is over.

    Yes, it is a pigeonhole and a very dangerous one at that. To constantly remind oneself of one’s age brings only negative connotations.

  4. vonMesser says:

    However, I expect more from someone of the age of 30 than I do of the age of 20.

  5. CW says:

    Sometimes age matters, sometimes it doesn’t.

    I thank you all for your comments. They are very good and to the point.
    I will say this, at risk of being misunderstood. I have seen children in everyday situations who were wiser and more intelligent than the parents. Those I call, “Huh?” moments.
