Two wonderful quotes in Saturday’s Body & Soul section of The Times:-
“Many of us old boys have survived wars and much else besides. We will survive the occasional extra glass of wine, too, if you don’t mind.” – Leslie Thomas, author, on claims by a psychiatrist at Sunnyside Royal Hospital, Montrose, that old people are drinking too much.
“My philosophy about ageing is that there is nothing you can do about it. And it’s better than the alternative, which is death” – Actress, Joan Collins, and what a superb advertisement for getting older she is.
