#1561 Not to yield

Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty never grows old.~Franz Kafka

I suppose real old age begins when one looks backward rather than forward.  ~Mary Sarton

In my old age there is a coming into flower. My body wanes; my mind waxes.  ~Victor Hugo

Those who love deeply never grow old; they may die of old age, but they die young.  ~Sir Arthur Wing Pinero

Though much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are--
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.  ~Alfred, Lord Tennyson (Ulysses)
