Age Doesn’t Matter Unless You’re a Cheese

Full of surprise, insight, humor, perspective, celebration, inspiration, and a kind of offhand, poignant poetry, Age Doesn’t Matter Unless You’re a Cheese-title courtesy of Billie Burke-shares hundreds of the best things men and women over sixty have said about how to love, work, laugh, and live. Collected by authors with a perfect ear for quotes, Kathryn and Ross Petras, Age Doesn’t Matter brings together Albert Einstein’s equation for happiness, Colette on the virtues of astonishment, and Julia Child’s secret of longevity: “Red meat and gin.”
