Worry — a God, invisible but omnipotent. It steals the bloom from the cheek and lightness from the pulse; it takes away the appetite, and turns the hair gray.
Benjamin Disraeli – [Worry]

Benjamin Disraeli – [Parliament]
Youth is a blunder, manhood is a struggle and old age a regret.
Benjamin Disraeli – [Age and Aging]
Youth is the trustee of prosperity.
