Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter

Age is an issue of mind over matter.  If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.
   ---Mark Twain

马克吐温:“年龄是一种意识操控的问题。如果你不介意,那就无所谓。”

马克吐温是个幽默大师,他的语录大都很俏皮好玩。这句话很巧妙的用 mind 对 don't mind, 和 matter 对 doesn't matter. 而 mind over matter 是意识控制事物的意思。整句话的结构很精简完整,而且工整顺口。

I don't mind my age. It's a natural thing for everybody.
I do mind my feeling daily.

I though all ladies mind their age and keep it as their top secret.
Since you say that, may I know how old R U ?

Ladies don't mind their age if the looks don't catch up.

I mind my age when my mind could not catch up.

Oh, no!
you have slipped your tongue and offended ladies by saying this:
'Ladies don't mind their age if the looks don't catch up.'
quickly put on helmet and take cover, they are going to throw bad eggs on you

let me compensate by saying ...
ladies try to keep their age a secret because age is always free from their mind.  Therefore instead of saying "I don't know", they say "please don't ask".
Does this sound better?
