On this day in 1930 André Gide wrote in his diary:

It requires great effort to convince myself that I am now as old as those who seemed to me so old when I was young.

From the book Assassin’s Cloak, an anthology of the world’s greatest diarists.

    Oh my, how very true that is. My Mom was 66 when she died. I’m 73 and there’s no way I could imagine her being younger than I am.
    I wonder why I didn’t order that book when you mentioned it before. Well, I will this time. Thank you.
