The easiest way to
congratulations would be by using quotes. It saves
yourself from racking your brain to come up with something cleaver and
inspiring when many other people before you have already spoken about
retirement or send their
wishes to someone special in their
"Retirement is the time when you never do all
the things you intended to do when you were still working."
This should be every
retiree's motto! That's pretty much all I have to say about this
"I have never liked working. To me a job is
an invasion of privacy."
"The other day a man asked me what I thought
was the best time of life. "Why," I answered without a thought, "now.""
That is exactly what
retirement is suppose to be, the best time in your life. I think
some people go into retirement a little worried about
anything to do, being bored, etc. But no one should feel this way
about retirement. Make retirement the best time in your life.
You create your own future and the time you spend retired is the time
you create for yourself.
"Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort
of splendid torch which I have got a hold of for the moment, and I want
to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future
George Bernard Shaw
"Retirement has been a discovery of beauty for me. I never had the time
before to notice the beauty of my grandkids, my wife, the tree outside
my very own front door. And, the beauty of time itself."
Retirement opens up our eyes of what we had been
missing while we were working 70% of our life away. It was a definite
necessity, but its too bad that being in the work force means we miss so
much of our personal life. Its too bad there canít be more of a
between working and living.
