The older I get, the greater power I seem to have to help the world; I am like a snowball — the further I am rolled the more I gain.

– Susan B. Anthony (1820 – 1906), American civil rights leader

I just love this quote from the fabulous Blog No Country for Young Women.
It made me think of some of the older women I think have just got better and better with age. Here’s a few of my favourites

Beatrice, Mirka, Agatha, Brigitte

And I couldn’t resist sneaking a Johnny Depp photo in as he’s also improved with age. 

King Snowball Johnny Depp

Who do you think is an older inspiration? 
Hats off to all smoking hot snowballs!

    Oo, I’m glad this lovely post came back from fuzzy ‘techno’ hiccup land! Some of my favourites: Clarissa Dickson Wright, Germaine Greer, Maggie Smith and Maggie Beer. I would love to have lunch with them! xx

    I can see you hosting the table, Jen! I’d love to be a fly on the wall. Yes, have no idea of what happened last night when I tried to post this. I’ve also been having problems with Blogger with the old Blog. Last night I thought it would take 15 minutes to post the original post but one hour later my entire blog had gone haywire. I hate computers! xx

    Let’s hope we all get better with age! I think if we accept it, we are more likely too. Those that appear not to perhaps are fighting against it? Love your choices, and also admire Catherine Deneuve, Colette and Dolly Parton.
