I AM A WINDOW OPEN ONTO THE WORLD FOR A SHORT TIME

I STAND HALFWAY BETWEEN IGNORANCE AND DEMISE

AS I GROW OLDER I BECOME LESS UNCERTAIN

I'VE LEARNED TO FEEL WITH DISREGARD FOR CORRECTNESS

AGE MAKES ME CONFORM LESS

I AM NO LONGER AFRAID OF STANDING OUT

AS LIFE GOES ON I BECOME MY IDEAS

ECCENTRICITY IS FREEDOM WITHOUT RESERVE

AGE IS A FORM OF BEAUTY

AGEING IS A PRIVILEGE NOT A PREDICAMENT

IT IS AS IF EVERYTHING IS ACCELERATING TOWARDS HAPPINESS
