Wordy Wednesday

It’s time for another quick visit to our quotes and sayings today and I’ve chosen some wry looks at Aging/Maturing.

It’s something we will all face and it’s something we don’t always feel humorous about. Let’s hope these quirky quotes will bring a smile!

Here goes:-

We know we're getting old when the only thing we want for our birthday is not to be reminded of it. ~Author Unknown

A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun. Enjoy the trip. ~Author Unknown

Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional. ~Chili Davis

The first sign of maturity is the discovery that the volume knob also turns to the left. ~Jerry M. Wright

You are only young once, but you can stay immature indefinitely. ~Ogden Nash

They say that age is all in your mind. The trick is keeping it from creeping down into your body. ~Author Unknown

Youth would be an ideal state if it came a little later in life. ~Herbert Asquith

The secret of staying young is to live honestly, eat slowly, and lie about your age. ~Lucille Ball

Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician. ~Author Unknown

Inside every older person is a younger person wondering what happened. ~Jennifer Yane

Wisdom doesn't necessarily come with age. Sometimes age just shows up all by itself. ~Tom Wilson

You're not 40, you're eighteen with 22 years experience. ~Author Unknown

Now if I were to apply that last one to my birthday card in a couple of weeks time it wouldn't help me feel any better at all!

Let's try it - 'You're not 61, you're eighteen with 43 years experience.' :) LOL What did I tell you?!!

Hope you enjoy the quote spot each week. Don't forget about our on-going challenge and the fab candy that is over at Colette's blog.

Thank you for joining me today. Have a good one!

  1. FABULOUS quotes honey....of course, I'm not as old as the rest of you (cough cough) so it'll be a while before I can use these!!! ;o)

  2. FairyD, I can see you already have the Lucille Ball one off to a fine art! LOL!
    Fab quotes Edna, my favourite is the growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional one, as I have no immediate plans for growing up just yet!
    Colette xx

  3. !!!!!!!!!! I have a very BIG fairy wand Mrs S...and I can turn your old age night cream into cement you know!!! ;O)

  4. Good Morning Edna,
    Well you have done it again - you have cheered my up with some of my favourite quotes. I think most of them apply to me a some point or another. Though I will always be 3 years younger than Colette - chronologically - mentally we are the same age - which isn't very old at all!?!
    Love Karen xx

  5. LOL ladies!
    Remeber Youth is the gift if nature, but AGE is the work of ART!
    Enjoy your evening ladies :)
    BIG hugs from the young one ;)


Teddy Bo & Bea LOVE to hear what you think...your opinion is VERY important to them...xxxx
