"'I truly believe if you think yourself young, you'll convince others too. It's largely a matter of mind over cellulite.' Penny Thornton 'Youth is when you're allowed to stay up late on New Year's Eve. Middle age is when you're forced to.' Bill Vaughn 'People started to tell me that I wasn't young anymore early on in my career. When, at twenty-five, I told a Hollywood producer my age, he informed me cynically, "Twenty-five? Honey, that's not young in this town anymore.'" Joan Collins, The Art of Living Well"
