We older women in Europe are lucky not to be shoved away in a drawer.
Thank God we're not like America. Everyone wants to look like they're 20. In Europe we admire grown-up women I think men revere older women.
I think older women still have a full life.
Older women are like aging strudels - the crust may not be so lovely but the filling has come at last into its own.
There are older men with younger women but you don't see a lot of older women with younger men. There are some women who have been able to do it but not often.
Ageism works in both directions. As a teenager in the public eye people would talk condescendingly to me. When you get older there's this feeling that you have to start carving up your face and body. Right now I'm in the middle ground - I think women in their thirties are taken seriously.
It's so clear that you have to cherish everyone. I think that's what I get from these older black women that every soul is to be cherished that every flower Is to bloom.
I don't want to put a pause on the rest of my life I'm really enjoying getting older and the wisdom that comes from that.
Now it is time to turn to an older wisdom that while respecting material comfort and security as a basic right of all also recognises that many of the most valuable things in life cannot be measured.
Your art kind of changes as you get older by nature of the fact that you're hopefully gaining wisdom and you're starting to watch things with a better overview.
There is a trade off - as you grow older you gain wisdom but you lose spontaneity.
The older I get the more wisdom I find in the ancient rule of taking first things first. A process which often reduces the most complex human problem to a manageable proportion.
When planning your wedding you make so many decisions: 'Do I want this fork or that fork?' But in the end people aren't going to remember what napkin holder you choose.
I mean I was born the day war broke out but I don't remember all the bombs though they did actually break up Liverpool you know. I remember when I was a little older there was big gaps in all the streets where houses used to be. We used to play over them.
If anything we older people yearn for a peaceful world even more than young people do. We are the ones who lost friends or relatives in some war. We are the ones who have lived a lifetime of seeing and reading about human suffering.
I speak the truth not so much as I would but as much as I dare and I dare a little more as I grow older.
I often say that shareholders should feel very responsible for how responsive corporations are to the public trust.
You're younger you might want to go to clubs and kick it but as you get older you start seeing that life has more meaning to it. The people that you love are the people you want to start trusting and start wanting them to trust you and start respecting them.
When you're C.E.O. you have to have two conditions: first shareholders need to trust you and want you to head your company. The second is that you need to feel the motivation to do the job. So as long as both are reunited you continue to do the job. And today they are reunited.
When you're CEO you have to have two conditions: first shareholders need to trust you and want you to head your company. The second is that you need to feel the motivation to do the job. So as long as both are reunited you continue to do the job.
Denial exists because human infants though equipped with trust-o-meters are built to trust blindly and absolutely any older person who wanders past.
Movie acting is a great job for your twenties: You travel all over you have affairs with people and you throw yourself into one part and then another. It gets more challenging as you get older and it's not just having a daughter it's wanting to have your own life and be yourself.
My father wasn't around when I was a kid and I used to always say 'Why me? Why don't I have a father? Why isn't he around? Why did he leave my mother?' But as I got older I looked deeper and thought 'I don't know what my father was going through but if he was around all the time would I be who I am today?'
I played teen roles until high definition came out and I could never understand it. I would go in for adult roles and be older than many of the people auditioning but they'd cast the girl without a line on her face.
