Quote by Robert Benchley
As for me, except for an occasional heart attack, I feel as young as I ever did.
This quote expresses the speaker's sentiment that despite occasional health setbacks, they still feel youthful. It suggests that physical well-being does not define one's sense of age, and that their overall vitality and energy levels remain unaltered. It highlights the difference between chronological age and subjective experience, implying that maintaining a youthful mindset can help counteract the effects of aging.
Obsessions of the Orient, of the desert, of its ardor and its emptiness, of the shadows of palm gardens, of the garments white and wide - obsessions where the senses go berserk, where nerves are exasperated, and which made me, at the onset of each night, believe sleep impossible.
