Age is an issue of mind over matter.  If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.  ~Mark Twain

And I hardly mind. I’ve always enjoyed getting older.

Do not regret growing older.  It is a privilege denied to many.  ~Author Unknown

Truer words have never been spoken. No premature gray hairs will change the pure privilege to still be here, and I’ve been graying since 14, so it’s really all good.

Thirty-five is when you finally get your head together and your body starts falling apart.  ~Caryn Leschen

Two years to go! Woo hoo!

The key to successful aging is to pay as little attention to it as possible.  ~Judith Regan

Yes, but I do enjoy reminding Mother that that particular day was, by far, the best day of her natural life. I won’t comment on whether she agrees with me.

At 20 years of age the will reigns; at 30 the wit; at 40 the judgment.  ~Benjamin Franklin, Poor Richard’s Almanac

Still in the decade of wit. To wit, thank you.

Everything slows down with age, except the time it takes cake and ice cream to reach your hips.  ~Attributed to John Wagner

I wasn’t blessed with hips, so I’ll keep indulging. (Shut up, belly. No one solicited your opinion.)

There are years that ask questions and years that answer.  ~Zora Neale Hurston

These are the answer years. Couldn’t say that at 25.

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty.  ~Henry Ford

And I dare anyone to tell me when they stopped learning.


A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams.  ~John Barrymore

Let’s continue dreaming, shall we?
