From Leaves of Grass, by Walt Whitman:

Women sit or move to and fro, some old, some young,
The young are beautiful — but the old are more beautiful than the young.

note to editors: this is in fact an entire poem by whitman and not just a quote. I am noding the entirety of leaves of grass and include this for completeness. perhaps song of myself balances it out.
