Aging quotes by Jamie Lee Curtis
#1. Nowadays, when you make movies, you don't need any lights at all. You have to remember, back in the day, the film stocks that they had were very, very insensitive and they would have these humongous lights and lighting was everything, so everyone looked good. Nowadays with digital film where you don't need any light at all, you could shoot in the [bleep] dark. It makes people not look so good and it makes aging on film much, much harder. #Quote by Jamie Lee Curtis
Aging quotes by Jules Renard
#2. It`s not how old you are, it`s how you are old. #Quote by Jules Renard

Aging quotes by Stewart O'Nan
#6. I'm sorry you don't like coming back here, her mother often said, to cap whatever petty dust-up they'd had. How could Emily explain: it wasn't her mother or Kersey she'd disowned, but her earlier self, that strange, ungrateful girl who strove to be first at everything and threw tantrums when she failed. #Quote by Stewart O'Nan
Aging quotes by Elizabeth Gaskell
#7. Nature felt no change, and was ever young. #Quote by Elizabeth Gaskell

a sacrifice to the vanity of aging adolescents #Quote by Albert Camus
Aging quotes by Nora Ephron
#10. It's always hard to remember love - years pass and you say to yourself, Was I really in love, or was I just kidding myself? Was I really in love, or was I just pretending he was the man of my dreams? Was I really in love, or was I just desperate? #Quote by Nora Ephron
Aging quotes by Courteney Cox
#11. Aging gracefully is one thing, but trying to slow it down is another. #Quote by Courteney Cox
Aging quotes by Anna Akana
#12. One thing that I really like to do is, I'll look in the mirror, and I'll imagine that I'm rapidly aging, until I'm just a skull. #Quote by Anna Akana
Aging quotes by Iris Apfel
#13. Aging gracefully is about no heavy makeup, and not too much powder because it gets into the wrinkles, and, you know, to not get turtle eyelids and to not try to look young. #Quote by Iris Apfel
Aging quotes by Donald Sutherland
#14. He doesn't translate well into our generation. #Quote by Donald Sutherland
Aging quotes by Susan Anton
#15. There is an anti-aging possibility, but it has to come from within. #Quote by Susan Anton
Aging quotes by Kresley Cole
#16. With her back to him, she maneuvered the towel, endeavoring to dress without revealing anything.
"Though I could watch this all night, you should no' bother with it. I've seen every inch of you by now."
She glanced over her shoulder, not knowing if she was pleased or disappointed that he'd slung on his jeans. "How's that?"
"I'm tall enough that when I was behind you, I could see straight over you. And my eyesight's strong enough to easily see through the water."
She wasn't modest, and this hiding her body like a blushing virgin wasn't her front anyway. "In that case . . ." she said, dropping the towel.
He hissed in a breath. As she set about dressing as usual, he grated, "Not a bashful one, then?"
Bashful? She and her friends made Girls Gone Wild look like a quilting circle. "Just being charitable to aging werewolves. #Quote by Kresley Cole
Aging quotes by Tessa Dare
#17. Tranquility is the soul of our community."
Not a quarter mile's distance away, Susanna Finch sat in the lace-curtained parlor of the Queen's Ruby, a rooming house for gently bred young ladies. With her were the room house's newest prospective residents, a Mrs. Highwood and her three unmarried daughters.
"Here in Spindle Cove, young ladies enjoy a wholesome, improving atmosphere." Susanna indicated a knot of ladies clustered by the hearth, industriously engaged in needlework. "See? The picture of good health and genteel refinement."
In unison, the young ladies looked up from their work and smiled placid, demure smiles.
Excellent. She gave them an approving nod.
Ordinarily, the ladies of Spindle Cove would never waste such a beautiful afternoon stitching indoors. They would be rambling the countryside, or sea bathing in the cove, or climbing the bluffs. But on days like these, when new visitors came to the village, everyone understood some pretense at propriety was necessary. Susanna was not above a little harmless deceit when it came to saving a young woman's life.
"Will you take more tea?" she asked, accepting a fresh pot from Mrs. Nichols, the inn's aging proprietress. If Mrs. Highwood examined the young ladies too closely, she might notice that mild Gaelic obscenities occupied the center of Kate Taylor's sampler. Or that Violet Winterbottom's needle didn't even have thread. #Quote by Tessa Dare
Aging quotes by Meir Soloveichik
#18. Ours is decidedly not an age of Abrahams, Jacobs, or of youthful Elazars proud to be regarded as men of seventy. On the contrary, it is one in which the external signs of aging are avoided at all costs, youth is worshipped, and immortality is sought not in children but in Botox. #Quote by Meir Soloveichik
Aging quotes by Shari Graydon
#19. We need an army of white-haired, wild-eyed radicals cutting a swath against the sexism that crosses our paths. It is a good antidote to the larger community's apparent belief that older women are slightly dotty, grandmotherly, benign souls. #Quote by Shari Graydon
Aging quotes by John Wright
#20. A grandma is old on the outside and young on the inside. #Quote by John Wright
Aging quotes by Abram Joseph Ryan
#21. Some reckon their age by years, Some measure their life by art; But some tell their days by the flow of their tears And their lives by the moans of their hearts. #Quote by Abram Joseph Ryan
Aging quotes by Malcolm Boyd
#22. Seriously, however, I learn a lot about my physical life in the aging and changing of my body. #Quote by Malcolm Boyd
Aging quotes by Jennifer Coburn
#23. At forty-two, I was still holding up pretty well, but my once effortlessly lean body now look as though it belonged in a Dove firming cream ad -- the one where they give women permission to have thighs. When I unbuttoned my jeans at night, I swore I heard the same sound that Pillsbury dough made when I twisted the cylindrical container. My hair was beginning to gray, and when I smiled, the parentheses around my mouth remained. My least favorite position in yoga class was the downward dog because, as I hung my head downward, I always felt the skin from my face was about to splatter against my mat like a pancake batter hitting the griddle. So being called the top model by a young Italian was a wonderful souvenir, though cheaper than the toys sold outside the Pantheon in Rome. #Quote by Jennifer Coburn
Aging quotes by Adrian Tchaikovsky
#24. I was young at Myna, that first time. When had the change come? He had retreated to here, to Collegium, to spin his awkward webs of intrigue and to lecture at the College. Then, years on, the call had come for action. He had gone to that chest in which he stored his youth and found that, like some armour long unworn, it had rusted away.
He tried to tell himself that this was not like the grumbling of any other man who finds the prime of his life behind him. I need my youth and strength now, as never before. A shame that one could no husband time until one needed it. All his thoughts rang hollow. He was past his best and that was the thorn that would not be plucked from his side. He was no different from any tradesman or scholar who, during a life of indolence, pauses partway up the stairs to think, This was not so hard, yesterday. #Quote by Adrian Tchaikovsky
Aging quotes by Edward Everett Hale
#25. In the name of Hypocrites, doctors have invented the most exquisite form of torture ever known to man: survival. #Quote by Edward Everett Hale
Aging quotes by Jacqueline Bisset
#26. Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades. #Quote by Jacqueline Bisset
Aging quotes by Gloria Steinem
#27. The thing about aging is all your old lovers, pretty much if they were really friends, become your family. It's great. You have those terrible feelings of possessiveness and uncertainty go out the window. You have what you shared. You know you would help each other in times of trouble no matter what. #Quote by Gloria Steinem
Aging quotes by J.B. Priestley
#28. There was no respect for youth when I was young, and now that I am old, there is no respect for age. I missed it coming and going. #Quote by J.B. Priestley
Aging quotes by Maria Dahvana Headley
#29. I just feel like this skin is mine. It's aging every day and the tattoos are aging with me. So, I'm going to be an old piece of paper one day with a lot of work on it. #Quote by Maria Dahvana Headley
Aging quotes by Mark Batterson
#30. In the words of Harriet Doerr, "One of the best things about aging is being able to watch imagination overtake memory." So who's right? The neurologists? Or Harriet? The answer is both. As we age, either imagination overtakes memory or memory overtakes imagination. Imagination is the road less taken, but it is the pathway of prayer. Prayer and imagination are directly proportional: the more you pray the bigger your imagination becomes because the Holy Spirit supersizes it with God-sized dreams. One litmus test of spiritual maturity is whether your dreams are getting bigger or smaller. The older you get, the more faith you should have because you've experienced more of God's faithfulness. And it is God's faithfulness that increases our faith and enlarges our dreams. There is certainly nothing wrong with an occasional stroll down memory lane, but God wants you to keep dreaming until the day you die. #Quote by Mark Batterson
Aging quotes by Haruki Murakami
#31. Your "scared" and my "scared" are two different things.'
'What's that supposed to mean?' she asked.
'As you get older, you don't recover from things so easy.'
'As you get older, you also get tired?'
'Yeah,' I said, 'you get tired. #Quote by Haruki Murakami
Aging quotes by Marty Rubin
#32. It's only in mirrors that people get old. #Quote by Marty Rubin
Aging quotes by Gautama Buddha
#33. Confusion conditions activity, which conditions consciousness, which conditions embodied personality, which conditions sensory experiences, which conditions impact, which conditions mood, which conditions craving, which conditions clinging, which conditions becoming, which conditions birth, which conditions aging and death. #Quote by Gautama Buddha
Aging quotes by Joan D. Chittister
#34. This compulsion to look back, to explain to myself, to others, why I did what I did - or, worse, to justify why I didn't do something else - is one of the most direct roads to depression we have. Our thoughts, emotions, and attitudes, according to Dr. Andrew Weil in his book Healthy Aging, are "key determinants of how we age." They can threaten the quality of time we bring to the present. #Quote by Joan D. Chittister
Aging quotes by Harriet Tubman
#35. I started with this idea in my head, "There's two things I've got a right to, death or liberty." #Quote by Harriet Tubman
Aging quotes by J.R.R. Tolkien
#36. I feel thin, sort of stretched, like butter scraped over too much bread. #Quote by J.R.R. Tolkien
Aging quotes by Annette Bening
#37. My mother is not somebody who's troubled by aging. #Quote by Annette Bening
Aging quotes by Ramana Maharshi
#38. Discover your undying Self and be immortal and happy. #Quote by Ramana Maharshi
Aging quotes by David Sedaris
#39. You tell yourself that if you traveled alone to Europe this summer, you could surely do the same thing next year, and the year after that. Of course you don't, though, and the next thing you know you're an aging, unemployed elf so desperate for love you spend your evening mooning over a straight alcoholic. #Quote by David Sedaris
Aging quotes by Susan Sontag
#40. Most men experience getting older with regret, apprehension. But most women experience it even more painfully: with shame. Aging is a man's destiny, something that must happen because he is a human being. For a woman, aging is not only her destiny ... it is also her vulnerability. #Quote by Susan Sontag
Aging quotes by Eva Gabor
#41. I believe in loyalty. When a woman reaches an age she likes, she should stick with it. #Quote by Eva Gabor
Aging quotes by Michelle Sagara West
#42. Death was silence, loss, guilt. And anger. But life led that way, anyway. From birth, it was a slow, long march to the grave. Who said that? She couldn't remember now. But it was true. They were born dying. If they were very lucky, the dying was called aging. They reached toward if as if they were satellites in unstable orbits. And then when they got there, they were just dead. One moment in time separated the living from the ghosts. #Quote by Michelle Sagara West
Aging quotes by Gary Shteyngart
#43. My hair would continue to gray, and then one day, it would fall out entirely, and then, on a day meaninglessly close to the present one, meaninglessly like the present one, I would disappear from the earth. And all these emotions, all these yearnings, all these data, if that helps to clinch the enormity of what I'm talking about, would be gone. And that's what immortality means. It means selfishness. My generations belief that each one of us matters more than you or anyone else would think. #Quote by Gary Shteyngart
Aging quotes by Kathe Kollwitz
#44. It seems to me nowadays that the most important task for someone who is aging is to spread love and warmth whenever possible. #Quote by Kathe Kollwitz
Aging quotes by Celine Dion
#45. There's no such thing is aging, but maturing and knowledge. It's beautiful, I call that beauty. #Quote by Celine Dion
Aging quotes by Anna Quindlen
#46. At a certain age we learned to see right through it, and that age is now. #Quote by Anna Quindlen
Aging quotes by William Sarabande
#47. Torka extended a conciliatory hand and laid it upon the old man's shoulder. "Umak, Manaravak, Dak, and Tankh and Chuk will walk at my side. We will miss your strength, courage, and wisdom, but a man in possession of these qualities is needed here".

They left Grek standing at the edge of camp with his spear in hand and his pack frame on his back. As Torka walked on without looking back he wondered if he had ever done anything in his life as difficult as that.

"You had no choice." Umak came to walk beside him with Dak and Companion at his side. Manaravak and the two boys trotted on ahead.

Torka eyed Dak and Umak without slowing his step. "Do you two imagine that you will never be old?"

Dak replied with his usual curtness. "When I am old, I will have sense enough to know when it is time to step aside and let younger men take my place on the hunt".

"It would seem the best thing to do," Torka agreed. "But will you know when you are old? Or will your years sneak up on you like hunters tracking caribou… one after the other, each looking just the same until the stalking cloaks fall away and the spears of truth come out to wound you… until one day you are a young man trapped and rattling around in an old man's skin, still believing that your old bones can do all the things they once did in your youth and trying to prove it even if it kills you? #Quote by William Sarabande
Aging quotes by Sarah Orne Jewett
#48. When I was as you are now, towering in the confidence of twenty-one, little did I suspect that I should be at forty-nine, what I now am. #Quote by Sarah Orne Jewett
Aging quotes by Gina Barreca
#49. In short, immaturity is spoiled. And what is spoiled doesn't ripen. It goes bad early, gets bitter and withers on the vine. #Quote by Gina Barreca
Aging quotes by Rita Dove
#50. I've never
stopped wanting to cross
the equator, or touch an elk's
horns, or sing Tosca or screw
James Dean in a field of wheat.
To hell with wisdom. They're all wrong:
I'll never be through with my life. #Quote by Rita Dove
Aging quotes by Veronica Rossi
#51. The real food in Ag 6 looked like old people before aging-reversal treatments. #Quote by Veronica Rossi
Aging quotes by Georgi Gospodinov
#52. Why is it that places thousands of miles from my childhood village home send me back, opening the sluice-gates of the past? Well, we are all emigrants from the homeland of our childhoods. It may be, then, that the natural place to meet ourselves as children is 'abroad', and that includes the foreign country of our growing up and aging. So it is that the personal, physical feeling of departure from the time of childhood may merge in a special symbiosis with geographical departure, biography and geography resonating now on a single wavelength. #Quote by Georgi Gospodinov
Aging quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#53. The older you grow, the younger your fears grow! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Aging quotes by Will Rogers
#54. I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top. #Quote by Will Rogers
Aging quotes by Carol A. Elliott
#55. Past age fifty-five, I experienced the advancement of exquisite fabric choices, paint distinctions that were celestial in scope, yet so many other man-made objects, such as people, became drab, redundant and boring. #Quote by Carol A. Elliott
Aging quotes by Jean Rhys
#56. At twenty-four she imagined with dread that she was growing old. #Quote by Jean Rhys
Aging quotes by Michael Zadoorian
#57. After a while, just staying alive becomes a full-time job. No wonder we need a vacation. #Quote by Michael Zadoorian
Aging quotes by Sting
#58. The alley is a pitch for about twenty women leaning in doorways, chain-smoking. In their shiny open raincoats, short skirts, cheap boots, and high-heeled shoes they watch the street with hooded eyes, like spies in a B movie. Some are young and pretty, and some are older, and some of them are very old, with facial expressions ranging from sullen to wry. Most of the commerce is centred on the slightly older women, as if the majority of the clients prefer experience and worldliness. The younger, prettier girls seem to do the least business, apparent innocence being only a minority preference, much as it is for the aging crones in the alley who seem as if they've been standing there for a thousand years.

In the dingy foyer of the hotel is an old poster from La Comédie Française, sadly peeling from the all behind the desk. Cyrano de Bergerac, it proclaims, a play by Edmond Rostand. I will stand for a few moments to take in its fading gaiety. It is a laughing portrait of a man with an enormous nose and a plumed hat. He is a tragic clown whose misfortune is his honour. He is a man entrusted with a secret; an eloquent and dazzling wit who, having successfully wooed a beautiful woman on behalf of a friend cannot reveal himself as the true author when his friend dies. He is a man who loves but is not loved, and the woman he loves but cannot reach is called Roxanne.

That night I will go to my room and write a song about a girl. I will call her Roxanne. I will conju #Quote by Sting
Aging quotes by Douglas Coupland
#59. A few years ago it dawned on me that everybody past a certain age ... pretty much constantly dreams of being able to escape from their lives. They don't want to be who they are any more. They want out. This list includes Thurston Howell the Third, Ann-Margret, the cat members of Rent, Václav Havel, space shuttle astronauts and Snuffleupagus. It's universal. #Quote by Douglas Coupland
Aging quotes by Mitch Albom
#60. Einstein once postulated that if you traveled at an enormous rate of speed, time would actually slow down relative to the world you left behind,
so that seeing the future without aging alongside it was at least theoretically, possible. #Quote by Mitch Albom
Aging quotes by Alex Hutchinson
#61. The important thing is that, thanks to epidemiological studies, we know that exercise is the most powerful anti-aging tactic we've got. #Quote by Alex Hutchinson
Aging quotes by Ellen Burstyn
#62. Everything gets old if you do it often enough. #Quote by Ellen Burstyn
Aging quotes by John Dewey
#63. The self is not something ready-made, but something in continuous formation through choice of action. #Quote by John Dewey
Aging quotes by Ray Bradbury
#64. The huge round lunar clock was a gristmill. Shake down all the grains of Time - the big grains of centuries, and the small grains of years, and the tiny grains of hours and minutes - and the clock pulverized them, slid Time silently out in all directions in a fine pollen, carried by cold winds to blanket the town like dust, everywhere. Spores from that clock lodged in your flesh to wrinkle it, to grow bones to monstrous size, to burst feet from shoes like turnips. Oh, how that great machine ... dispensed Time in blowing weathers. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Aging quotes by Hamza Yusuf
#65. A hadith states, "Anxiety is half of aging." Another hadith states, "Righteousness will lengthen your life. #Quote by Hamza Yusuf
Aging quotes by Dick Van Dyke
#66. Why is it amazing that I don't act my age? Why should I act my age? Or more to the point, how is someone my age supposed to act? Old age is part fact, part state of mind, part luck, and wholly something best left for other people to ponder, not you or me. Why waste your time? I don't. #Quote by Dick Van Dyke
Aging quotes by Alana Massey
#67. Boys often have permission to become men without the forfeiture of their desirability. And so these men write stories that grasp at girls who are ghosts twice over: first by being dead and second by being shallow shadows of actual girls, the assorted fragments of men's aging imaginations rather than the deep and dimensioned creatures that real girls are. #Quote by Alana Massey
Aging quotes by Jennifer Garner
#68. I do think about aging. I have those moments of panic and vanity, but life keeps getting better, so you can't worry about it too much. #Quote by Jennifer Garner
Aging quotes by Garth Stein
#69. Growing old is a pathetic thing. It is full of limitations and reduction. It happens to us all, I know; but I think that it might not have to. I think it happens to those of us who request it. And in our current mind-set, our collective ennui, it is what we have chosen to do. But one day a mutant child will be born who refuses to age, who refuses to acknowledge the limitations of these bodies of ours, who lives in health until he is done with life, not until his body no longer supports him. He will live for hundreds of years, like Noah. Like Moses. This child's genes will be passed to his offspring, and more like him will follow. And their genetic makeup will supplant the genes of those of us who need to grow old and decay before we die. I believe that one day it will come to pass; however, such a world is beyond my purview. #Quote by Garth Stein
Aging quotes by John Wray
#70. My mother and I looked at each other then, full in the face, more frankly than we'd done since I was small. I realized with a jolt that I was taller than she was by at least half a foot. When on earth had that happened? The realization made me want to sit down on the stairs and cry. It seemed to signify something terrible about the world: something that couldn't - or mustn't- be put into words. And I could see, looking down into her startled, anxious face, that my mother felt exactly the same way. #Quote by John Wray
Aging quotes by Mary Ellen Hannibal
#71. The sky seemed abruptly to have had enough of my dithering and dramatically lightened up around the glowing moon, which retreated like an aging sovereign before the rising sun. #Quote by Mary Ellen Hannibal
Aging quotes by Edmund Burke
#72. But the age of chivalry is gone. That of sophisters, economists, and calculators has succeeded; and the glory of Europe is extinguished forever. #Quote by Edmund Burke
Aging quotes by Jeanne Moreau
#73. Aging gracefully is supposed to mean trying not to hide time passing and just looking a wreck. Don't worry girls, look like a wreck, that's the way it goes. #Quote by Jeanne Moreau
Aging quotes by Morrissey
#74. Miss Redmond is aging, and will never marry, and will die smelling of attics. #Quote by Morrissey
Aging quotes by Joe L. Wheeler
#75. With age, gone are the forevers of youth. Gone is the willingness to procrastinate, delay, to play the waiting game. Now each day is a treasure beyond compare ... because there are so few such diadems left. #Quote by Joe L. Wheeler
Aging quotes by Lea Davey
#76. Where have the years gone, Ruby Rose? Sometimes I have to stop and think about how old I am. When I wake up in the morning, before I move this tired old body or look in the blasted mirror, I swear I'm still a young man. It just feels like yesterday. I don't know how it's gone so fast. #Quote by Lea Davey
Aging quotes by Sharon Lee Rasa
#77. Aging is not an option, but how we age is completely within our choices. Lifestyle #Quote by Sharon Lee Rasa
Aging quotes by Deepak Chopra
#78. Biological age is the key component of the aging process. #Quote by Deepak Chopra
Aging quotes by Lillian Gordy Carter
#79. Sometimes, when I look at my children, I say to myself, 'Lillian, you should have remained a virgin.' #Quote by Lillian Gordy Carter
Aging quotes by Harrison Ford
#80. You know you're getting old when all the names in your black book have M. D. after them. #Quote by Harrison Ford
Aging quotes by Michelle Cooper
#81. The way she told it, the English counties are littered with aging spinsters who accidentally displayed a spark of intelligence at a debutante dance and were banished forever from civilized society #Quote by Michelle Cooper
Aging quotes by Ashton Applewhite
#82. Fear of dying is human. Fear of aging is cultural. #Quote by Ashton Applewhite
Aging quotes by Ann Marlowe
#83. Once upon a time the future was supposed to be brighter, shinier and more fun. When did that vision pass? When did the word 'new' lose it's luster? Now the past is supposed to hold the hopes we once confided to the future. We're directing attachments that used to go forward backward. #Quote by Ann Marlowe
Aging quotes by Gregory Stock
#84. Retarding the aging process would be therapy and enhancement because it would mean defeating diseases and because it would extend our life span. #Quote by Gregory Stock
Aging quotes by Mina Loy
#85. The past has come apart
events are vagueing
the future is inexploitable #Quote by Mina Loy
Aging quotes by Anne Sebba
#86. After a burglary of all her most valued and treasured possessions, Winston Churchill's aging mother wrote: "That burglar relieved me of an obsession. For years, I've had to take houses big enough to hold all these bibelots. I am almost grateful to him." #Quote by Anne Sebba
Aging quotes by Anne-Marie Slaughter
#87. What mothers need, as well as fathers, spouses, and the children of aging parents, is an entire national infrastructure of care, every bit as important as the physical infrastructure of roads, bridges, tunnels, broadband, parks and public works. #Quote by Anne-Marie Slaughter
Aging quotes by Madhuri Dixit
#88. I don't fear aging. It's natural, and I can't stop it! #Quote by Madhuri Dixit
Aging quotes by Jon Kabat-Zinn
#89. Curiously, just as much if not more mindless behavior can creep into our most momentous closures and life transitions, including our own aging and our own dying. Here, too, mindfulness can have healing effects. We may be so defended against feeling the full impact of our emotional pain - whether it be grief, sadness, shame, disappointment, anger, or for that matter, even joy or satisfaction - that we unconsciously escape into a cloud of numbness in which we do not permit ourselves to feel anything at all or know what we are feeling. #Quote by Jon Kabat-Zinn
Aging quotes by Jeffrey Eugenides
#90. I'd like to show how 'intimations of mortality brought on by aging family members' connects with 'the hatred of mirrors that begins in middle age. #Quote by Jeffrey Eugenides
Aging quotes by George Burns
#91. I was always taught to respect my elders and I've now reached the age when I don't have anybody to respect. #Quote by George Burns
Aging quotes by Emma Watson
#92. I'm excited about the aging process. I'm more interested in women who aren't perfect. They're more compelling #Quote by Emma Watson
Aging quotes by Jacob Wren
#93. I go to the shelf and pick out a few poetry books to take with me. A few old favorites and a few I haven't gotten to yet. As I slip the books into my carry-on, it occurs to me that there really are a lot of poems about death, that I've always read many poems about dying, but had almost never noticed them before. They were always the ones I lightly skimmed, and I thought that maybe I could start reading these poems more carefully. It was almost nothing, but it was also a decision about my life. #Quote by Jacob Wren
Aging quotes by Alan Lightman
#94. When the first mechanical clocks were invented, marking off time in crisp, regular intervals, it must have surprised people to discover that time flowed outside their own mental and physiological processes. Body time flows at its own variable rate, oblivious to the most precise hydrogen master clocks in the laboratory. In fact, the human body contains its own exquisite time-pieces, all with their separate rhythms. There are the alpha waves in the brain; another clock is the heart. And all the while tick the mysterious, ruthless clocks that regulate aging. #Quote by Alan Lightman
Aging quotes by Anthony Hopkins
#95. There's many a good tune played by an old banjo. #Quote by Anthony Hopkins
Aging quotes by Ray Bradbury
#96. I've always figured it that you die each day and each day is a box, you see, all numbered and neat; but never go back and lift the lids, because you've died a couple of thousand times in your life, and that's a lot of corpses, each dead a different way, each with a worse expression. Each of those days is a different you, somebody you don't know or understand or want to understand. #Quote by Ray Bradbury
Aging quotes by Elizabeth Berg
#97. The truth is, aging can be your realest opportunity to decide how best to live - and the best incentive for getting you to do just that. #Quote by Elizabeth Berg
Aging quotes by Jerry N. Uelsmann
#98. I have a friend who likes to date younger women because their stories are shorter. Old men like us, our stories are longer. #Quote by Jerry N. Uelsmann
Aging quotes by Irvin D. Yalom
#99. But the problem with crests is that they lead downhill. From the crest I can see all the rest of my years stretched out before me. And the view doesn't please me. I see only aging, diminishment, fathering, grandfathering." "But, #Quote by Irvin D. Yalom
Aging quotes by Stanley Hauerwas
#101. Mainline American Protestantism, as is often the case, plodded wearily along as if nothing had changed. Like an aging dowager, living in a decaying mansion on the edge of town, bankrupt and penniless, house decaying around her but acting as if her family still controlled the city, our theologians and church leaders continued to think and act as if we were in charge, as if the old arrangements were still valid. #Quote by Stanley Hauerwas
Aging quotes by Jenny Offill
#102. Here is what happens in middle age: Some friends and acquaintances who were merely eccentric for years become unmistakably mad. #Quote by Jenny Offill
Aging quotes by George Carlin
#103. But wait!!! You MAKE it to 60. You didn't think you would! #Quote by George Carlin
Aging quotes by Henri Nouwen
#104. Aging does not need to be hidden or denied, but can be understood, affirmed and experienced as a process of growth by which the mystery of life is slowly revealed to us. #Quote by Henri Nouwen
Aging quotes by Margaret Stohl
#105. Old paper, which my mom used to say was the smell of time itself. #Quote by Margaret Stohl
Aging quotes by Doris Day
#106. Middle age is youth without levity, and age without decay. #Quote by Doris Day
Aging quotes by David Lynch
#107. When you see an aging or a rusted bridge, you are seeing nature and man working together. If you paint over a building there is no more magic to that building. But if it is allowed to age, then man has built it and nature has added into it - it's so organic. #Quote by David Lynch
Aging quotes by George Hodgman
#108. Politically, I have a lot of differences with many I encounter here. When visiting the homes of reactionary friends and neighbors, I enjoy hiding their copies of books by Glenn Beck and other lunatics around the house while my hosts cook or adjourn to relieve themselves. Ducking into a garage to deposit the latest ravings of Ann Coulter into a bag of aging peat moss lifts the spirit as unfailingly as a summer tent revival. But I am trying to behave.

Aging quotes by Emma Thompson
#109. The trick is to age honestly and gracefully and make it look great, so that everyone looks forward to it. #Quote by Emma Thompson
Aging quotes by Suzanne Somers
#110. The biggest myth about aging is that we can't do anything about it. That it's a road to being decrepit, frail, and sick. #Quote by Suzanne Somers
Aging quotes by Rodney Dangerfield
#111. I told my doctor I wonna stop aging, he gave me a gun! #Quote by Rodney Dangerfield
Aging quotes by Willard Scott
#112. I get all fired up about aging in America. #Quote by Willard Scott
Aging quotes by Brian Rathbone
#113. Wisdom is the reward for surviving our own stupidity. #Quote by Brian Rathbone
Aging quotes by Sarah Rees Brennan
#114. Maybe both of our societies are messed up, and they each only think one type of person is really a person. And the type of person they think is really a person is allowed to show imperfections and age ... whereas the type of person they think is an object should show no signs of being a person. #Quote by Sarah Rees Brennan
Aging quotes by Ramona Ausubel
#115. She did not try to explain aging or love and how much harder it was to keep trusting beauty the later it got. How, though she was only twenty-eight years old, she seemed to have passed into the long slide during which time a woman became less and less valuable, and to keep her around became an act of charity rather than pleasure. #Quote by Ramona Ausubel
Aging quotes by Michael Knight
#116. Like the long gone captains of the Confederacy, he stood watch at the edge of Dauphin Island, his old life just out of sight across the water. What he felt in those moments, pelicans skimming the chop, tankers lugging cargo to ports unknown, was not loneliness or loss, as you might expect, nor the weight of tragedy but its opposite, pure lightness, the hole left inside him by Suzette's death as big and hollow as a zeppelin and just as buoyant, as if the shape of her absence might lift him up and carrying him away. #Quote by Michael Knight
Aging quotes by Peggy Noonan
#117. My generation, faced as it grew with a choice between religious belief and existential despair, chose marijuana. Now we are in our Cabernet stage #Quote by Peggy Noonan
Aging quotes by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
#118. As people move through life, passing from the hopeful ignorance of youth into sobering adulthood, they inevitably face an increasingly nagging question: Is this all there is? Childhood can be painful, adolescence confusing; most people, expect that in adulthood things will get better. During the early years of adulthood the future still looks promising. But inevitably the mirror' shows the first white hairs and confirms the fact that those few extra pounds are not about to leave; eyesight begins to fail and mysterious pains begin to shoot through the body...' Where's all that money I was to have made? Where are all of the good times I was going to have? #Quote by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi
Aging quotes by Albert Brooks
#119. Getting older is a lot of fun. Right up there with chewing glass or putting your hand in a blender. #Quote by Albert Brooks
Aging quotes by C.S. Lewis
#120. It is very rarely that a middle-aged man finds an author who gives him, what he knew so often in his teens and twenties, the sense of having opened a new door. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Aging quotes by Bernardine Evaristo
#121. Ageing is nothing to be ashamed of
Especially when the entire race is in it together
Although sometimes it seems that she alone among her friends wants to celebrate getting older
Because it's such a privilege to not die prematurely #Quote by Bernardine Evaristo
Aging quotes by Georges Braque
#122. With age, art and life become one. #Quote by Georges Braque
Aging quotes by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
#123. To come across as younger than they are: Women buy creams that promise to slow aging; men buy fast cars. #Quote by Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Aging quotes by Aporva Kala
#124. At thirty either you are perfect or nothing. #Quote by Aporva Kala
Aging quotes by Richelle E. Goodrich
#125. It's strange how in childhood it feels like tomorrow won't come until the end of forever, but in adulthood it feels like the end of forever could come tomorrow. #Quote by Richelle E. Goodrich
Aging quotes by Nora Ephron
#126. I don't know why so much nonsense about age is written - although I can certainly understand that no one really wants to read anything that says aging sucks. #Quote by Nora Ephron
Aging quotes by Mary Calmes
#127. I know you worry about getting older, about not being the prettiest guy in the room anymore."

And I worried about aging, but not how he thought. I had never presumed I was prettiest, just one of many. My only concern now was that Sam Kage thought I was hot.

"But there will never come a time when that will be the case," he said, pressing soft kisses to the side of my neck. I leaned my head back so he could reach more of my throat. "To me, Jory," he said, "you're more beautiful now than you ever have been, and I can't wait to see what you're gonna look like at forty and fifty and sixty, and God willing a lot more numbers after that."

"Many after that," I assured him as my eyes drifted open so I could look up into his smoky-blue ones.

"The most important thing is that you're mine, you belong to me," he said, his hands pressing me closer before he kissed me. #Quote by Mary Calmes
Aging quotes by William Butler Yeats
#128. The hare grows old as she plays in the sun
And gazes around her with eyes of brightness;
Before the swift things that she dreamed of were done
She limps along in an aged whiteness ... #Quote by William Butler Yeats
Aging quotes by George Sheehan
#129. Aging is a myth, he argued, and he showed it by posting his personal best at 3:01 in his 61st year. #Quote by George Sheehan
Aging quotes by Billy Casper
#130. Like a lot of fellows around here, I have a furniture problem. My chest has fallen into my drawers. #Quote by Billy Casper
Aging quotes by Caitlin Moran
#131. But women living in fear of aging, and pulling painful and expensive tricks to hide it from the world, does not say something amazing about us as humans. #Quote by Caitlin Moran
Aging quotes by Pat Conroy
#132. It had been a winter of deadening seriousness, when all the illusions and bright dreams of my early twenties had withered and died. I did not yet have the interior resources to dream new dreams; I was far too busy mourning the death of the old ones and wondering how I was to survive without them. I was sure I could replace them somehow , but was not sure I could restore their brassy luster or dazzling impress . #Quote by Pat Conroy
Aging quotes by Meryl Streep
#133. Some men can maintain cragginess and weary masculinity. Women just get old. #Quote by Meryl Streep
Aging quotes by Patricia A. Tabloski
#134. Research has shown that healthy lifestyles are
more influential than genetic factors in helping older people avoid
the deterioration traditionally associated with aging. #Quote by Patricia A. Tabloski
Aging quotes by Théun Mares
#135. Old age is a crossroad in the sense that it is the point at which two forces cross at right angles. The one force is the unyielding temptation to rest; the other is the determination to go on. If the warrior surrenders to the temptation to rest, the aging process of the body pulls the plug on his personal power, and before long he will have become just as feeble as any average man in his old age. If, on the other hand, the warrior fights off the temptation to rest, he performs yet another miracle, and so brings about a ninety degree shift in his awareness which enables him to enter into that peculiar state termed the definitive journey of a warrior. #Quote by Théun Mares
Aging quotes by Amy Bloom
#136. Aging is a chance to make what was good, great; and what was never so good, better. #Quote by Amy Bloom
Aging quotes by Paul Rudnick
#137. Because there's a clock attached to every beautiful woman. From the second she comes into her own, she begins to decline, because she begins to age. Aging is every beautiful woman's kryptonite. And so, yes, it's ridiculous and no, you don't have much time and of course it's not fair. Those three statements are the essence of beauty. #Quote by Paul Rudnick
Aging quotes by Jim Donovan
#138. It saddens me when I see older people using canes and walkers, especially since I know, in many cases, it could have been prevented. With the exception of accidents and injuries, the crippling effects of aging we see are the result of poor health choices, a sedentary lifestyle, lack of exercise and most of all, the acceptance that this is a "normal" part of the aging process. It is not. This will become quite clear as you read in Chapter 8 what the various health authorities have to say. #Quote by Jim Donovan
Aging quotes by Joan Marques
#139. Here's the fantastic part of aging no one tells you about: there are no long days anymore. Time always flies, whether things are good or bad. Everyday is like a speed movie. #Quote by Joan Marques
Aging quotes by Joan Collins
#140. I never think about age. I believe your age is totally how you feel. I've seen women of thirty-five who are old and people of seventy-five who are young. As long as I look after myself physically, mentally and emotionally, I'll stay young. #Quote by Joan Collins
Aging quotes by Chocolate Waters
#141. REFUSAL
When you refuse
to tell your weight
and age,
people know
you're fat and old. #Quote by Chocolate Waters
Aging quotes by Wallace Stegner
#142. Ruth tells me at least once a day that old people, or people getting old, tend to disengage, back away, turn inward, listen only to themselves, and get self-righteous and censorious. And they mustn't. (I mustn't.) #Quote by Wallace Stegner
Aging quotes by Gypsy Rose Lee
#143. I have everything I had twenty years ago, only it's all a little bit lower. #Quote by Gypsy Rose Lee
Aging quotes by Will Rogers
#144. You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks. #Quote by Will Rogers
Aging quotes by Janet Fitch
#145. No scorn like the scorn of an aging queen for a pretty girl with a crap fake DL. #Quote by Janet Fitch
Aging quotes by Marilyn Ferguson
#146. Of all the self-fulfilling prophecies in our culture, the assumption that aging means decline and poor health is probably the deadliest. #Quote by Marilyn Ferguson

Aging quotes by Danielle Dutton
#148. An utter success,' her stepdaughters confided to
Margaret as they prepared to take their leave. 'The handsome king! That spoof!' Still the rain persisted, and the bishop had lost his hat. Maids danced in and out. Where was the bishop's hat? Alone at the window, Margaret didn't hear. The reflection of the parlor was yellow and warm. She watched it empty out. Then, an interruption. A voice came at her side: 'What do you look at with such interest, Lady Cavendish?' What did she see in the glass? She saw the Marchioness of Newcastle. She saw the aging wife of an aged marquess, without even any children to dignify her life. #Quote by Danielle Dutton
Aging quotes by Michael Chabon
#149. I reflected that it seemed to be in the nature of human beings to spend the first part of their lives mocking the cliches and conventions of their elders and the final part mocking the cliches and conventions of the young. #Quote by Michael Chabon
Aging quotes by Lauren Groff
#150. It occurred to her then that life was conical in shape, the past broadening beyond the sharp point of the lived moment. The more life you had, the more the base expanded, so that the wounds and treasons that were nearly imperceptible when they happened stretched like tiny dots on a balloon slowly blown up. A speck on the slender child grows into a gross deformity in the adult, inescapable, ragged at the edges. #Quote by Lauren Groff
Aging quotes by Elizabeth Harrower
#151. Perhaps this was part of growing older, to undergo hideous alterations in the deepest certainties, in love, in lovers, finally in one's self. #Quote by Elizabeth Harrower
Aging quotes by J.K. Rowling
#152. Someone laughed behind Harry. Turning, he saw Fred, George, and Lee Jordan hurrying down the staircase, all three of them looking extremely excited. "Done it," Fred said in a triumphant whisper to Harry, Ron, and Hermione. "Just taken it." "What?" said Ron. "The Aging Potion, dung brains," said Fred. #Quote by J.K. Rowling
Aging quotes by Wilhelm, Ostwald
#153. In specific circumstances the period of aging decline can set in earlier in a particular organ than in the organism as a whole which, in a certain general or theoretical sense, is left a cripple or invalid. #Quote by Wilhelm, Ostwald
Aging quotes by Stephanie Danler
#154. Aging is peculiar," she said, moving a piece of parsnip around the plate with her fork. "I don't think you should be lied to about it. You have a moment of relevancy - when the books, clothes, bars, technology - when everything is speaking directly to you, expressing you exactly. You move toward the edge of the circle and then you're abruptly outside the circle. Now what to do with that? Do you stay, peering backward? Or do you walk away? #Quote by Stephanie Danler
Aging quotes by Faith Hill
#155. Forget aging. If you're six feet above ground, it's a good day. #Quote by Faith Hill
Aging quotes by Michael Bloomberg
#156. What goes on in Europe concerns us greatly because, if Europe comes apart, the E.U. comes apart, then you're going to have enormous impact on America, that's a very big trading partner of ours, and people own securities around the world in this day and age. #Quote by Michael Bloomberg
Aging quotes by Anne Lamott
#157. I suddenly have two stomachs - a regular tummy and another one below that, which I call the subcontinent. This older body is both amazingly healthy and a big disappointment. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Aging quotes by Michio Kaku
#158. We are slowly isolating the genes involved with the aging process. We do not have the fountain of youth, but I think, in the coming decades, we will unravel the aging process at the genetic level. #Quote by Michio Kaku
Aging quotes by Rabindranath Tagore
#159. Gray hairs are signs of wisdom if you hold your tongue, speak and they are but hairs, as in the young. #Quote by Rabindranath Tagore
Aging quotes by Stephen Colbert
#160. A new study shows that having a severe phobia can hasten aging. But what if my greatest fear IS aging?!? #Quote by Stephen Colbert
Aging quotes by Richard Armour
#161. There are very few humorists who have written first-rate humor after they've become elderly. #Quote by Richard Armour
Aging quotes by Carol Grace
#162. There is no old age. There is, as there always was, just you. #Quote by Carol Grace
Aging quotes by Josh Billings
#163. It is not all bad, this getting old, ripening. After the fruit has got its growth it should juice up and mellow. God forbid I should live long enough to ferment and rot and fall to the ground in a squash. #Quote by Josh Billings
Aging quotes by Elaine Stritch
#164. And why not do something new every day of your life? Change! Change! #Quote by Elaine Stritch
Aging quotes by Min Jin Lee
#165. It was not Hansu that she missed, or even Isak. What she was seeing again in her dreams was her youth, her beginning, and her wishes--so this is how she became a woman. #Quote by Min Jin Lee
Aging quotes by Kenneth Cain
#166. I'm not ready to let the youthful part of myself go yet. If maturity means becoming a cynic, if you have to kill the part of yourself that is naive and romantic and idealistic - the part of you that you treasure most - to claim maturity, is it not better to die young but with your humanity intact? #Quote by Kenneth Cain
Aging quotes by Louise Erdrich
#168. Life seems to flood by, taking our loves quickly in its flow. In the growth of children, in the aging of beloved parents, time's chart is magnified, shown in its particularity, focused, so that with each celebration of maturity there is also a pang of loss. This is our human problem, one common to parents, sons and daughters, too - how to let go while holding tight, how to simultaneously cherish the closeness and intricacy of the bond while at the same time letting out the raveling string, the red yarn that ties our hearts. #Quote by Louise Erdrich
Aging quotes by Khaled Hosseini
#169. They rarely look at Baba
the teenagers
and then only with cold indifference, or even subtle disdain, as if my father should have known better than to allow old age and decay to happen to him. #Quote by Khaled Hosseini
Aging quotes by Wendy Wasserstein
#170. Sometimes I want to clean up my desk and go out and say, "Respect me; I'm a respectable grown-up!" and other times I just want to jump into a paper bag and shake and bake myself to death. #Quote by Wendy Wasserstein
Aging quotes by Lauren Groff
#171. She'd never met a child with beady eyes before. Beadiness arrives after long slow ekes of disappointment, usually in middle age. #Quote by Lauren Groff
Aging quotes by Leon Edel
#172. The answer to old age is to keep one's mind busy and to go on with one's life as if it were interminable. I always admired Chekhov for building a new house when he was dying of tuberculosis. #Quote by Leon Edel
Aging quotes by Ann Druyan
#173. I'm just at the age when time speeds up in an odd way. Do you know what I mean? The winters come closer together and you learn to accept that you're not special anymore. #Quote by Ann Druyan
Aging quotes by Alexander Hamilton
#174. Nobody expects to trust his body overmuch after the age of fifty. #Quote by Alexander Hamilton
Aging quotes by Elizabeth Lesser
#175. I've realized that aging is the younger cousin of dying ... How much time do I have left? We become aware that we're on the downside of the mountain, coasting toward our final days. #Quote by Elizabeth Lesser
Aging quotes by Nicole Krauss
#176. I read differently now, more painstakingly, knowing I am probably revisiting the books I love for the last time. (245) #Quote by Nicole Krauss
Aging quotes by Harrison Ford
#177. Hell of a thing when a man's got good health, plenty of money and absolutely nothing to do. #Quote by Harrison Ford
Aging quotes by Anne Lamott
#178. I have become the woman I hardly dared imagine I could be. There are parts I don't love - until a few years ago, I had no idea that you could have cellulite on your stomach - but not only do I get along with me most of the time now, I am militantly and maternally on my own side. Left to my own devices, would I trade this for firm thighs, fewer wrinkles, a better memory? You bet I would. That is why it's such a blessing that I'm not left to my own devices. #Quote by Anne Lamott
Aging quotes by Gerd Leonhard
#179. The coming wave of automation will move way beyond the factory or public infrastructure and into our very biological processes such as aging and even giving birth. Used as we are to the gradual societal shifts brought about by previous change waves, often allowing decades to adjust and respond, I ask if we as a tribe are ready to abdicate our human sovereignty to the faceless forces of technology? Are you ready for the biggest loss of free will and individual human control in history? #Quote by Gerd Leonhard
Aging quotes by Tad Williams
#180. He was a figurehead - an aging CEO of his own family who only showed up for the board meetings and wondered how so much got done without him. #Quote by Tad Williams
Aging quotes by Christie Brinkley
#181. I start by moisturizing my face neck and chest with my own anti-aging SPF And IR Defense Sunblock called Recapture 360 ... Allow to sink in ... Then I like Neutrogena's range of spray on sunblocks for body ... then I use a foundation with SPF 30 or higher on my face to add yet another layer of protection to my face. #Quote by Christie Brinkley
Aging quotes by Clare Dargin
#182. She had died and joined the Marine Corps. Or was God an aging general? Either way, she knew it couldn't be heaven 'cause there was no chocolate. #Quote by Clare Dargin

Aging quotes by Henry Louis Gates
#187. I first learned that there were black people living in some place called other than the United States in the western hemisphere when I was a very little boy, and my father told me that when he was a boy about my age, he wanted to be an Episcopal priest, because he so admired his priest, a black man from someplace called Haiti. #Quote by Henry Louis Gates
Aging quotes by Missy Buchanan

Aging quotes by Martha Bolton
#190. So why aren't more marketing companies targeting our age group? Why are there so many youth-oriented programs and advertisements on television today? Why are we being ignored? Don't companies realize they are missing a huge market?

Now granted, a visit to the local mall will show you there are a lot of teenagers hanging out there these days. But are they shopping? Are they spending money? No. They're "hanging." Contrary to what our skin might be doing, we members of the over-forty crowd don't "hang." We shop, and not just window shop either. We're serious buyers. When we pick up an item and turn it over to see the price, we often carry it right on over to the checkout counter and pay for it. Why? Because we know the energy involved with picking up items. We don't do it unless we're committed. #Quote by Martha Bolton
Aging quotes by Milan Kundera
#191. All he knew about old age was that it a time when a person had passed his maturity; when fate had ended; when there was no longer any need to fear that terrible mystery called the future; when every love than came along was certain and final. #Quote by Milan Kundera
Aging quotes by Georgia Douglas Johnson

#194. My wisdom is as spurned as chaos. What is my nothingness, compared to the amazement that awaits you? #Quote by Arthur Rimbaud
Aging quotes by Shakieb Orgunwall
#195. My son, you are just an infant now, but on that day when the world disrobes of its alluring cloak, it is then that I pray this letter is in your hands.

Listen closely, my dear child, for I am more than that old man in the dusty portrait beside your bed. I was once a little boy in my mother's arms and a babbling toddler on my father's lap.

I played till the sun would set and climbed trees with ease and skill. Then I grew into a fine young man with shoulders broad and strong. My bones were firm and my limbs were straight; my hair was blacker than a raven's beak. I had a spring in my step and a lion's roar. I travelled the world, found love and married. Then off to war I bled in battle and danced with death.

But today, vigor and grace have forsaken me and left me crippled.

Listen closely, then, as I have lived not only all the years you have existed, but another forty more of my own.

My son, We take this world for a permanent place; we assume our gains and triumphs will always be; that all that is dear to us will last forever.

But my child, time is a patient hunter and a treacherous thief: it robs us of our loved ones and snatches up our glory. It crumbles mountains and turns stone to sand. So who are we to impede its path?

No, everything and everyone we love will vanish, one day.

So take time to appreciate the wee hours and seconds you have in this world. Your life is nothing but a sum of da #Quote by Shakieb Orgunwall
Aging quotes by Suzy Kassem
#196. I am born as the sun,
But then turn into the moon,
As my blonde hairs turn
Grayish-white and fall to
The ground,
Only to be buried again,
Then to be born again,
Into a thousand suns
And a thousand moons.

Aging quotes by Neal Stephenson
#197. [The thief-taker] was conspicuous by his age, I should estimate he is in his middle fifties, and by a bearing, I am tempted to call it dignity, wanting in the others. He has a good head of hair, only a bit thin on top, blond going grey, and sea green eyes. He has an excellently carved set of teeth, but displays them rarely. He has a trim figure, unusual in a profession that consists largely of loitering around taverns, but any illusion that he is especially fit is dispelled when he begins to move, for he is a little bit halt, and a little bit lame, stiff in the joints and given to frequent sighs and grimaces that hint at pains internal. #Quote by Neal Stephenson
Aging quotes by Phyllis Diller
#198. Maybe it's true that life begins at fifty. But everything else starts to wear out, fall out, or spread out. #Quote by Phyllis Diller
Aging quotes by William Kuhn
#199. If old age is good for anything it's good for being generous. #Quote by William Kuhn
Aging quotes by Paul Leautaud
#200. Somebody asked me the other day, "What do you do?" "I amuse myself by growing old," I replied. "It's a full-time job. #Quote by Paul Leautaud
