Age Quotes – words on the good and bad of the current era

Age Quotes - featured image

Age Quotes are the conclusions or observations of some thinking minds about the transition of time or age or era and the implication it brings in human civilization.

Some of these wise minds are pretty confused seeing this transition – because the new age may be perfecting the technologies but are lacking so much to fix any goals for human lives.

For many, the golden age is far behind and with every passing day, the civilization is decaying towards the doomsday.

But there is optimism as we find this from Quotes on Age by Shelly as well – “The world’s great age begins anew, the golden years return.” — Shelley. And this one from Milton: “Time will run back and fetch the Age of Gold.” — Milton
