Wit & Wisdom Wednesday - George Orwell on Faces

August 19, 2015
Author: Kelly Elarbee

“At 50, everyone has the face he deserves.” George Orwell

It is Wit & Wisdom Wednesday at Elarbee Media. We are not spring chickens here. Although we are not yet 50 we have “been around the block a few times”, “had our teeth kicked in”, and “pulled ourselves up by our bootstraps”. When we see the signs of age, we embrace them. They aren’t wrinkles, they are character lines.  

Not living life means not making mistakes, and not making mistakes means not learning. If you can’t see in someone’s face that they have lived life, it is best to run away quickly. Very quickly.
