Jonathan Carroll Quotes About Old

Browse 4 famous quotes of Jonathan Carroll about Old.

"Patience never wants Wonder to enter the house: because Wonder is a wretched guest. It uses all of you but is not careful with what is most fragile or irreplaceable. If it breaks you, it shrugs and moves on. Without asking, Wonder often brings along dubious friends: doubt, jealousy, greed. Together they take over; rearrange the furniture in every one of your rooms for their own comfort. They speak odd languages but make no attempt to translate for you. They cook strange meals in your heart that leave odd tastes and smells. When they finally go are you happy or miserable? Patience is always left holding the broom." ~ Jonathan Carroll
"Old people are often impatient, but for what?" ~ Jonathan Carroll
"It took me less than half a lifetime to realize that regret is one of the few guaranteed certainties. Sooner or later everything is touched by it, despite our naive and senseless hope that just this time we will be spared its cold hand on our heart." ~ Jonathan Carroll
"Both young children and old people have a lot of time on their hands. That's probably why they get along so well." ~ Jonathan Carroll
