Stand before the people you fear and speak your mind – even if your voice shakes.
Old age is not a disease – it is strength and survivorship, triumph over all kinds of vicissitudes and disappointments, trials and illnesses.
By the year 2020, the year of perfect vision, the old will outnumber the young.
Power should not be concentrated in the hands of so few, and powerlessness in the hands of so many.
When you least expect it, someone may actually listen to what you have to say.
