...as I write, Johnny Rotten's first moments in "Anarchy in the U.K."–a rolling earthquake of a laugh, a buried shout, then hoary words somehow stripped of all claptrap and set down in the city streets–I AM AN ANTICHRIST–Remain as powerful as anything I know.

The hoary beard is a crown of glory if it be found in the way of righteousness.
The redbreast oft, at evening hours, Shall kindly lend his little aid, With hoary moss, and gathered flowers, To deck the ground where thou art laid.william collins
Olodumare has rubbed Its head with Iyerosun. Will never die, which whole head is become exceedingly hoary
Day and night, Seed-time and harvest, heat and hoary frost Shall hold their course, till fire purge all things new.john milton
Time, the foe of man's dominion, Wheels around in ceaseless flight, Scattering from his hoary pinion Shades of everlasting night.thomas love peacock
Spirituality tells the seeker not to live in the hoary past, not to live in the remote future, but to live in the immediacy of today, in the eternal Now.
