I know I'm old when I hear that song, say, "Dolly did it better," and nobody knows what I'm talking about.

Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.


Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.

Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

When I was a teenager, my cohorts and I made fun of the radio station self-described as: easy listening, soft rock, at-work mix station.

When those stations started playing all the songs I used to listen to, I realized I was old.
