Thirteen Famous Quotes About Age


I thought since everyone seemed to like the famous last words I did last time, I would post these. My MIL just had her 60th Birthday last September, and these are just a few
of the quotes I had posted at her surprise party.

Hi, we posted at 13 headquarters at the same time. My 13 starts with a quote. Here's one to add to the theme here: Let life ripen and then let it fall. Lao Tzu

My grandpa allways says the quote about birthdays beating the alternative. I have to agree with a lot of these. My life certainly has gotten better each year. I feel blessed that now there are so many positive roll models for aging.
