"I am old, Gandalf. I don't look it, but I am beginning to feel it in my heart of hearts. Well-preserved indeed! Why, I feel all thin, sort of stretched, if you know what I mean: like butter that has been scraped over too much bread. That can't be right. I need a change, or something."
― Bilbo Baggins (The Lord of the Rings)
"I am still my youthful years of one hundred and thirties thank you."
― Kureha (One Piece)
"Oh. You should really be more careful. This toy is clearly marked "Not for children under three million years old."
― Naljian (Ben 10: Alien Force)
