Words of Note

It is a mistake to regard age as a downhill grade toward dissolution. The reverse is true. As one grows older, one climbs with surprising strides.

George Sand (Amandine Dudevant),

19th-century French novelist

From 'The Intimate Journal of George Sand,' edited by Marie Jenny Howe (1929).
