Thread: Grace and Grit — by Steve McCurry

  1. #1 Grace and Grit — by Steve McCurry 
    Steve McCurry's blog is a continuing series of photo-essays interspersed with quotations appropriate to his theme. This one is on the grace and grit of growing old. That's right up my alley...

    Here are a few of the quotes...

    Stronger by weakness, wiser men become
    As they draw near to their eternal home.
    Leaving the old, both worlds at once they view
    That stand upon the threshold of the new.
    – Edmund Waller

    The answer to old age is to keep one’s mind busy and to go on with one’s life as if it were interminable. I always admired Chekhov for building a new house when he was dying of tuberculosis.
    – Leon Edel

    When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple
    with a red hat that doesn’t go, and doesn’t suit me.
    And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves
    and satin candles, and say we’ve no money for butter.
    I shall sit down on the pavement when I am tired
    and gobble up samples in shops and press alarm bells
    and run my stick along the public railings
    and make up for the sobriety of my youth…
    – Jenny Joseph
