There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.
A man loves the meat in his youth that he cannot endure in his age.
Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever... it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.
It is wrong to think that love comes from long companionship and persevering courtship. Love is the offspring of spiritual affinity and unless that affinity is created in a moment, it will not be created for years or even generations.
No disguise can long conceal love where it is, nor feign it where it is not.
So long as little children are allowed to suffer, there is no true love in this world.
A man does not die of love or his liver or even of old age; he dies of being a man.
One's life has value so long as one attributes value to the life of others, by means of love, friendship, indignation and compassion.
Age does not protect you from love. But love, to some extent, protects you from age.
I love things that age well - things that don't date, that stand the test of time and that become living examples of the absolute best.
I think the biggest disease the world suffers from in this day and age is the disease of people feeling unloved. I know that I can give love for a minute, for half an hour, for a day, for a month, but I can give. I am very happy to do that, I want to do that.
Love has no age, no limit; and no death.
Forty is the old age of youth; fifty the youth of old age.
Age is opportunity no less than youth itself, though in another dress,
And as the evening twilight fades away
The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.
If in my youth I had realized that the sustaining splendour of beauty of with which I was in love would one day flood back into my heart, there to ignite a flame that would torture me without end, how gladly would I have put out the light in my eyes.
I don't believe in happy endings, but I do believe in happy travels, because ultimately, you die at a very young age, or you live long enough to watch your friends die. It's a mean thing, life.
Many believe - and I believe - that I have been designated for this work by God. In spite of my old age, I do not want to give it up; I work out of love for God and I put all my hope in Him.
Not even old age knows how to love death.
I began taking liberties a long time ago; now it is standard practice for most directors to ignore the rules.
He who loves practice without theory is like the sailor who boards ship without a rudder and compass and never knows where he may cast.
I stopped loving my father a long time ago. What remained was the slavery to a pattern.
A man can be happy with any woman, as long as he does not love her.
In order to acquire a growing and lasting respect in society, it is a good thing, if you possess great talent, to give, early in your youth, a very hard kick to the right shin of the society that you love. After that, be a snob.
I have long been convinced that my artistic ideal stands or falls with Germany. Only the Germany that we love and desire can help us achieve that ideal.
I am of a healthy long lived race, and our minds improve with age.
