A Few Quotes From “Old Age ain’t no place for SISSIES”

“The great comfort in turning 49 is the realization that you are now too old to die young.” (Paul Dickson)

Retirement at 65 is ridiculous. When I was 65, I still had pimples.” (George Burns)

“If I had known I would live this long, I would have taken better care of myself.” (H. J. Springston [age 77])

“At my age, by the time I find temptation, I’m too tired to give in to it.” (E.C. McKenzie)

“Outwardly I am 83, but inwardly I am every age, with the emotions and experience of each period.” (Elizabeth Coatsworth)

(Hmm: Since when is 49 “too old to die young”?)
