7 inspirational quotes about age

Today I offer you some quotes about age.

Many of us spend far too much of our time fretting about our advancing years. However, should we really? Age is just a number surely? Well, maybe! Then again, each birthday reminds us that time is passing.

On the other hand, as we get older we gradually become more comfortable being the people we are. We worry less about what others think and we concentrate more on simply being ourselves and enjoying life as best we can.

For me, the most important thing is that we make the most of our lives. I regard age as simply being a state of mind. Only when I lose interest in everything new will I truly regard myself as old.

As long as I am still keen to learn, experience new things, set myself new goals and rise to new challenges then I will never be old.

However, think old and you are old. So choose to think young, constantly learn and test yourself. That will keep you young at heart. And forget the number, just focus on enjoying the moment.

Here are seven inspirational quotes about age to help you put it all in perspective.

Quotes about age:

  1. Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter. ~Mark Twain
  2. Do not go gentle into that good night but rage, rage against the dying of the light. ~Dylan Thomas
  3. Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young. ~Henry Ford
  4. Probably the happiest period in life most frequently is in middle age, when the eager passions of youth are cooled, and the infirmities of age not yet begun; as we see that the shadows, which are at morning and evening so large, almost entirely disappear at midday. ~Eleanor Roosevelt
  5. There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age. ~Sophia Loren
  6. Youth is the gift of nature, but age is a work of art. ~Stanislaw Jerzy Lec

21 funny quotes about age certain to amuse you

Funny Quotes About AgeDoes getting older bother you dear reader?

If you’re like me then it might just bother you a little bit.

The years go by so quickly, don’t they? Life goes by in the blink of an eye.

We all want to make the most of our time of course. However life usually gets in the way, doesn’t it? As John Lennon once said, life’s what happens whilst you’re busy making other plans.

When we’re young, we have time and energy but no money and few skills.

As we get older, we have the demands of work and family eating up the time we have. And whilst we have some money, it mostly goes on paying bills.

Then in old age we have money if we’ve been lucky and we have fewer demands on our time but we have no energy and our bodies start to let us down.

Life can be like a cruel joke at times. However done right, life can be fun too. Well I think so anyway.

Live life whilst you can and don’t put anything off until someday because someday never comes. If you really want to do it, then do it now.

Here are 21 funny quotes about age certain to amuse you and certain to get you thinking about life too.
