Quotes About Age 24

I was baptized as an infant. I was confirmed as an adolescent; I was active in my churchs youth group and in my university student group. I was married before the churchs altar; trained at the churchs seminaries, ordained deacon and priest at age 24.

The end of an age is always a time of turmoil, war, economic catastrophe, cynicism, lawlessness and distress. But it is also an era of heightened challenge and creativity, of issues, and their world-wide scope, never has an era faced a more demanding and exciting crisis. This then, above all else, is the great and glorious era to live in, a time of of opportunity, one requiring fresh and vigorous thinking, indeed, a glorious time to be alive.

— Rousas John Rushdoony

His manner was polite; his accent, in speaking, struck me as being somewhat unusual,-not precisely foreign, but still not altogether English: his age might be about Mr. Rochester's,-between thirty and forty; his complexion was singularly sallow: otherwise he was a fine-looking man, at first sight especially.  On closer examination, you detected something in his face that displeased, or rather that failed to please.  His features were regular, but too relaxed: his eye was large and well cut, but the life looking out of it was a tame, vacant life-at least so I thought.

— Charlotte Brontë

At the age of 12, my parents gave me a chemistry set for Christmas, and experimentation soon became a consuming passion in my life.

In Latino culture, the quinceanera's a big thing - it's when a girl becomes a woman. But I think age is just a number - you become a woman with the responsibilities you take on and the decisions you make. I started realizing that every day is a gift - you have every day to be thankful you're alive.

— Emily Rios

I found that the very people who said that mankind was one church from Plato to Emerson were the very people who said that morality had changed altogether, and that what was right in one age was wrong in another. If I asked, say, for an altar, I was told that we needed none, for men our brothers gave us clear oracles and one creed in their universal customs and ideals. But if I mildly pointed out that one of men's universal customs was to have an altar, then my agnostic teachers turned clean round and told me that men had always been in darkness and the superstitions of savages.

— G.K. Chesterton

Since age seven, I've been composing and have never stopped composing, yet, the creative process is as elusive to me as it has ever been.

— Lukas Foss

I can remember being eight, and I like writing about that age of innocence when children still have a sense of wonder.

— John Boyne

All my early school reports from the age of 5 were 'Daniel must learn not to distract others.'

— Dan Stevens

The Olympic Spirit is neither the property of one race nor of one age.

— Pierre De Coubertin

I was baptized as an infant. I was confirmed as an adolescent; I was active in my church's youth group and in my university student group. I was married before the church's altar; trained at the church's seminaries, ordained deacon and priest at age 24.

— John Shelby Spong

In the next age they loved them and praised them.

— Lao Tzu

The idea of a star being born is bushwa. A star is created, carefully and cold-bloodily, built up from nothing, from nobody. Age, beauty, talent, least of all talent, has nothing to do with it. We could make silk purses out of sows' ears every day of the week.

— Louis B. Mayer

A lot of people ask ... why a man is willing to risk ... Well, we've got to do it. We're going into an age of exploration that will be bigger than anything the world has ever seen ... If a man faces up to the (unknown) and takes the dare of the future, he can have some control over his destiny.

— John Glenn

The wonderful structure of the animal system will probably never permit us to look upon it as a merely physical apparatus, yet the demands of science require that the evidently magnified principles of vitality should be reduced to their natural spheres, or if truth requires, wholly subverted in favor of those more cognizable by the human understanding. The spirit of the age will not tolerate in the devotee of science a quiet indifference ...

— John Gorrie

But youth isn't happy. Youth is sadder than age.

— Ellen Glasgow

It is false to speak of realisation. What is there to realise? The real is as it is always. We are not creating anything new or achieving something which we did not have before. The illustration given in books is this. We dig a well and create a huge pit. The space in the pit or well has not been created by us. We have just removed the earth which was filling the space there. The space was there then and is also there now. Similarly we have simply to throw out all the age-long samskaras [innate tendencies] which are inside us. When all of them have been given up, the Self will shine alone.

— Ramana Maharshi

If I could write the beauty of your eyes And in fresh numbers number all your graces, The age to come would say, 'This poet lies; Such heavenly touches ne'er touch'd earthly faces.'

— William Shakespeare
