On Age A Stage

On Middle Age By That Old Sage Parker Pyne

“What are the years from twenty to forty?  Fettered and bound by personal and emotional relationships.  That’s bound to be. That’s living.  But later there’s a new stage.  You can think, observe life, discover something about other people and the truth about yourself.  Life become real – significant.  You see it as a whole.  Not just one scene – the scene you, as an actor are playing.  No man or woman is actually himself (or herself) till after forty-five.  That’s when individuality has a chance.”
