  • An old man can see backward better than a young one can see forward.
  • If an old man lacks knowledge, at least he has experience.
  • There is wisdom in age.
  • Age deserves honor.
  • He who does not honor age does not deserve age.
  • It is good to grow old in a place where age is honored.
  • Even bad parents deserve our thanks.
