Quote by Christopher Hitchens
People until I was 60 would always say they thought I looked younger, which I think, without flattering myself, I did, but I think I certainly have, as George Orwell says people do after a certain age, the face they deserve.
In this quote, the speaker reflects on others often remarking that they looked younger than their actual age until they turned 60. The speaker acknowledges that this perception might have been true, but they suggest that as they got older, their face began to reflect the experiences and choices they have made throughout their life. By referencing George Orwell, the speaker implies that one's face eventually reflects the consequences of their actions and the life they have led, ultimately shaping their appearance.
