One more for the seniors?

“In youth we learn; in age we understand.”

~ Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach


Baroness Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach (September 13, 1830 - March 12, 1916) was an Austrian writer. Noted for her excellent psychological novels, she is regarded—as one of the most important German-language writers of the latter portion of the 19th century.

She was born at the castle of Dubský (Graf von Třebomyslice) family in Zdislavice near Kroměříž in Moravia, Czech Republic, and died in Vienna, Austria.

She is credited with the famous aphorism "even a stopped clock is right twice a day."
