Sample Quotes on Retirement & Aging:

Sometimes memories sneak out of my eyes and roll down my cheeks.

‘Old times’ never come back—and I suppose it’s just as well. What comes back is a new morning every day in the year, and that’s better.

—George E. Woodberry

The best place to be when you’re sad is Grandpa’s lap

As I grew older I thought the best part of my life was over. Then I was handed my first grandchild and realized…the best part of my life had just begun.

—T-Shirt Slogan

The years between 50 and 70 are the hardest. You are always being asked to do things and yet are not decrepit enough to turn them down.

—T. S. Eliot

My first grandchild, Jordan, was born on January 30, 2011. I was jolted, blindsided by a wallop of loving more intense than anything I could remember or had ever imagined….This is what I didn’t expect. I was at a time in my life where I’d

assumed I had already had my best day, my tallest high. But now I was

overwhelmed with euphoria. Why was she hitting with such a force? What

explains this joy, this grandmother elation that is a new kind of love?

—Lesley Stahl

You take all the experience and judgement of men over 50 out of the world and there wouldn’t be enough left to run it.

—Henry Ford

Don’t cry over the past, it’s gone. Don’t stress about the future, it hasn’t arrived. Live in the present and make it beautiful.

The best time to start thinking about retirement is before your boss does.

In the last months of her life, my mother-in-law dwelled in a hospital bed in our house. It took all of her strength to get down our steps, walk around the block, and get back to the front door. As we inched down the sidewalk, she pointed out every flower, the pattern in paving stones, the various shades of the trees and bushes. I had never seen my neighborhood like this. At first, I was infuriated by our pace. She would stop often, not because she was short of breath, but to examine the texture of a flower. It’s hard to give ourselves even 15 minutes of the day. It means overcoming the nagging distraction of our many pressures and aims. My mothers-in-law reminded me of the patient momentum of looking and really seeing, turning an ordinary walk into gladness for continuing to be among the living.

—Wendy Lustbader

When you finally go back to your old hometown, you find it wasn’t the old home you missed. It was your childhood.

—Sam Ewing

Of all ghosts, the ghosts of our old loves are the worst.

—Arthur Conan Doyle
