Grow old along with me

Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, the last of life, for which the first was made. Our times are in his hand who saith, 'A whole I planned, youth shows but half; Trust God: See all, nor be afraid!” 
- Robert Browning

I think I may have to grow up without growing old. I think we're going to have to define differently what I'm going to be. We're going to have to define my growing up differently. - Mattie Stepanek

Old age is not an illness. It takes a very long time and a lot of hardwork to reach that point and I see no reason to apologise for my arrival.
