A TREASURY FOR THE AGES Words of wisdom are like wine: they improve with age. Now, for some classic quotes from some classy characters--vintage all--turn to Older and Wiser. Inside you'll find a delightful, insightful collection of pointed observations and clever comments, each of which has passed the test of time, as spoken by contemporary and historical figures at 60 years of age or older. From Mae West to Mao Tse Tung, from Benjamin Franklin to George Burns, these accomplished and enlightened individuals are our eyewitnesses to history, our windows on the past and the future. And there's not a retiring mind among them! "I am ready to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter." --Winston Churchill "Sixty years ago I knew everything; now I know nothing; education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance." --Will Durant "Old age is like everything else. To make a success of it, you've got to start young." --Fred Astaire "An archaeologist is the best husband any woman can have; the older she gets, the more interested he is in her." --Agatha Christie
