I turn 40 this week. I will have also been married to a great man for 18 years. I know some may gasp, but I love the passing of time. I love getting older. I am way happier at 40 than I ever was at 20. To celebrate I thought I'd share some of my favorite age quotes.
Old age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill.
The first sign of maturity is the discovery that the volume knob
also turns to the left.
~Jerry M. Wright
How old would you be if you didn't know how old you were?
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.
Forty is the old age of youth; fifty the youth of old age.
I recently had my annual physical examination, which I get once every seven years, and when the nurse weighed me, I was shocked to discover how much stronger the Earth's gravitational pull has become since 1990.
You know you've reached middle age when a doctor,
not a policeman, tells you to slow down.
At 20 years of age the will reigns; at 30 the wit; at 40 the judgment.
~Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard's Almanac
Do not regret growing older. It is a privilege denied to many.
I'm not 40, I'm eighteen with 22 years experience.
You can't help getting older, but you don't have to get old.
Grow old with me! The best is yet to be.
Hope you enjoyed the quotes.
