Quotes On Getting Older


Retirement is usually associated with aging, so why not use quotes on getting older in a card or letter to go along with your wishes? This is certainly a good way to bring some humour to your congratulations. You may also find them useful during your speech at the retirement party.



Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years.  We grow old by deserting our ideals.  Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul. 
Samuel Ullman

So in your retirement, you wonít allow yourself to grow old, in fact you should turn back the time! Let this time be the things you never got the chance to do when you were younger. After accomplishing these dreams, you will probably feel younger, definitely happier!

You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair. 
Douglas MacArthur

A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams. 
John Barrymore

Regrets are in no way to be part of ones retirement. This is a time for you to rejoice and live. Regrets hold people back from doing what they love, because they feel guilty and feel as if they do not deserve this happiness. But if you have worked as long and hard as most people have, no matter what regrets you have, they should be put on the back burner so you can celebrate your retirement and enjoy it! Donít allow any regrets to steal this time from you. You will have lots of time to thing about those regrets when youíre dead! Right now, youíre alive and you should act like it!! Live in the present, not in the past! The past will do you no good!

The first half of life consists of the capacity to enjoy without the chance; the last half consists of the chance without the capacity. 
Mark Twain

It's sad to grow old, but nice to ripen. 
Brigitte Bardot

As we all hate to see the number of candles on our birthday cake grow each year, we should be celebrating our accomplishments and our experiences. As these are going to make all the difference in our later years. Retirement especially will benefit these years, so enjoy the ripening!

There's no such thing as too late.  That's why they invented death. 
From the movie Out to Sea


For whatever use you need them for, we can only hope that you have found one of these to be what you are looking for.
