From the February 1940 issue of The Christian Science Journal

Among the false laws of mortal mind claiming to hold mankind in bondage, one which has brought much of fear, sorrow, and suffering is that of old age. The law has been laid down, and generally accepted, that after the passing of a certain number of years one is no longer fit for right employment in business, or to enjoy health and engage in normal activities, but must be content with a few years of increasing inactivity, helplessness, and uselessness, until death brings fancied release.
