'If you are not a liberal at 20, you have no heart. If you are not Conservative by 40, you have no brain'. ? Do you think this quote is true? If so, why?

Kind of offensive. Not really that true either. I know liberals with brains and moderate conservatives who have hearts (usually).
"The solution [for Republicans] is to admit that Bush was a bad president, stop this racist homophobic stuff, stop trying to give most of the tax cuts to the rich, propose a real alternative to Obamacare that actually works, and propose smart free market solutions to our economic problems." - Distraff

"Americans are better off in a dynamic, free-enterprise-based economy that fosters economic growth, opportunity and upward mobility." - Paul Ryan

Having a heart =/= wasted government programs. Forcing people to be self sufficient is nicer in my opinion.

No the quote is BS.

Some conservatives are smart
some liberals are smart

Some conservatives have no heart
some liberals have no heart

Back to the amazing coincidence of all those workers who simultaneously decided to become lazy right after the stock market crashed.

Yeah, this, pretty much. I was conservative at 20 and am pretty liberal (at least by this site's standards) at 30. What now?

The drunk who led a country.
Life is like radiation. A uniquely damaging event. Perhaps I will live another thirty years. Perhaps I will die tomorrow. But I have no regrets. I was sometimes forced to make difficult choices. But enough is enough. As Vladimir would say, you can only die once, make sure it is worth it.
