W. Somerset Maugham

This quote was added by maryc
The complete life, the perfect pattern, includes old age as well as youth and maturity. The beauty of the morning and the radiance of the moon are good, but it would be a very silly person who drew the curtains and turned on the light in order to shut out the tranquility of the evening. Old age has its pleasures, which, though different, are not less than the pleasures of youth.
