age and treachery will always overcome youth and skill any day...

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? 
~Satchel Paige
 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. 
~J.B. Priestly
Forty is the old age of youth; fifty the youth of old age. 
~Victor Hugo
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.
  ~Dave Barry 
 You know you've reached middle age when a doctor,
not a policeman, tells you to slow down. 
~Author Unknown 
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. 
~Author Unknown
 I'm not 40, I'm eighteen with 22 years experience. 
~Author Unknown
You can't help getting older, but you don't have to get old. 
~George Burns
Grow old with me! The best is yet to be. 
~Robert Browning

    (¸.•´ (¸.•` ¤HAPPY 40TH BIRTHDAY!!! I didn't mind turning 40, and wouldn't want to be 20 again either! But I loved your quotes, and I do hope you have a wonderful and fun birthday!!

  14. Happy Birthday, mine was Oct 27. Next year I begin a new decade. We'll see how that goes.

  15. Happy Birthday, and Happy Anniversary! Loved seeing your wedding pic and the sledding photo too. Also, I really like the photo of the wheelbarrow with the pumpkins on your sidebar!

  16. Happy Birthday! Happy Anniversary! I liked this: fifty the youth of old age. (this is where I am!)

    Fun quotes.

  17. A belated Happy Birthday to you. Love your photos and the quotes that go with it. The first photo embodies 'treachery' really well while the sledding photo is imbued with so much joy in family life. You are still very young and pretty.

  18. Happy Birthday! You're so right about the age-thing.....I'm happier the older I get, too. I'm smack-dab in the middle of the 'youth of old age' phase right now, at 54. Going to a senior's exercise class I'm not the youngest one there, but in the top five which puts me in an odd place; they expect us youngsters to hop around a whole lot faster than they do and give us flack when we can't.

    Congratulations on your anniversary, 18 years is a true milestone in this day and age. You have a beautiful family!

  19. I love these quotes! Happy Birthday to you!! I really love your wedding are adorable!!

  20. Ah I am with you on loving being a bit older than 20! The photos are adorable and I loved the quotes, congratulations on the marriage. Growing older together is a wonderful thing.
