A man is as old as he's feeling, a woman as old as she looks.

Mortimer Collins


This 19th-century poet is describing the aging phase for men and women. For men, its usually an internal feeling and he is only old if he's feeling old. Meanwhile, for women, they are old if they look old.

Quoted From: How old are you? (1855) by Mortimer Collins.
