Friday’s Final Thoughts

iStock_000016093894SmallThis particular Friday not only brings the likely arrival of what could be a blizzard here in New York City. It also marks the last day of my 38th year on this planet.

So, as I sail into my birthday weekend on an easy-breezy note, I thought I’d share a few smiles courtesy of my top 10 favorite quotes about getting older. These words of wisdom are good reminders for all of us – yes, that includes me! – that age really is just a number.

  1. “Age is a question of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”-Satchel Paige
  2. “Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.”-Mark Twain
  3. “Anyone who keeps the ability to see beauty in every age of life really never grows old.”-Franz Kafka
  4. “Time ripens all things; no man is born wise.”-Miguel de Cervantes
  5. I promise to keep on living as though I expected to live forever. Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old by deserting their ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up wrinkles the soul.”-Douglas MacArthur
  6. “I speak truth, not so much as I would, but as much as I dare; and I dare a little more, as I grow older.”-Catherine Drinker Bowen
  7. “The man who views the world at 50 the same as he did at 20 has wasted 30 years of his life.”-Muhammad Ali
  8. “When you are younger you get blamed for crimes you never committed and when you’re older, you begin to get credit for virtues you never possessed. It evens itself out.”-George Santayana
  9. “You are never too old to be what you might have been.”-George Eliot
  10. “A birthday is a good time to begin anew: throwing away the old habits, as you would old clothes, and never putting them on again.”-Bronson Alcott

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend filled with countless who-cares-how-old-your-drivers-license-says-you-are-moments and plenty of chances to have fun, be fit and feel fabulous!
