CARL VICTOR DE BONSTETTEN
Swiss author
(1745 - 1832)

If the memory is more flexible in childhood, it is more tenacious in mature age; if childhood has sometimes the memory of words, old age has that of things, which impress themselves according to the clearness of the 'conception of the thought which we wish to retain.
      - [Age]

One cannot be fully happy until after his sixtieth year.
      - [Happiness]

The habit of reflecting gives an inner life, which all that we see animates and embellishes. In this disposition of the soul everything becomes an object of thought. If the young botanist trembles with joy at the sight of a new plant, the moral botanist joys no less to see germinate around him truths with a much superior prize to that of an unknown flower.
      - [Thought]

To resist with success the frigidity of old age, one must combine the body, the mind, and the heart; to keep these in parallel vigor, one must exercise, study, and love.
      - [Age]

To speak well supposes a habit of attention which shows itself in the thought; by language we learn to think, and above all to develop thought.
      - [Conversation]
