We turn not older with years, but newer every day.
Emily Dickinson (1830 - 1886)
(Why am I not understanding one word she wrote here?)

"If two things don't fit,
but you believe both of them,
thinking that somewhere, hidden,
there must be a third thing that
connects them, that's credulity."
- Umberto Eco (1929-), Foucalt's Pendulum

"To sit alone with my conscience will be judgment enough for me."
- Charles William Stubbs

Remember when we all had a cowboy/girl outfit, complete with felt cowboy hat and cap guns?
We never had enough money for caps, but that's OK; the sun was shining and we were righting the world's wrongs, right alongside Hopalong Cassidy and the Cisco Kid.

I am not sure about Emily, but there is a saying hereabouts that you can re-invent yourself every day and who you say your are, that's who you are, is that the same?

You know, I read Western/Indian stories in Germany, very popular books, written by a man named Karl May, who never set foot on American soil; he spent a good part of his life in prison, and his stories are about as authentic as they can be.
Look him up, he's interesting
