Over The Hill….

Old personIts time to lighten up a little and what better way than to make fun of old people. 🙂  Being a collector of quotes I have an arsenal of them. So, here goes:

You are over the hill when you back goes out more than you do.  — R.J. Walters (I think?)

Old age is always 15 years older than you are — Oliver Wendell Holmes

You know you are getting old when all the names in your black book have M.D. after them – Arnold Palmer

Good old daysJust remember that once you are over the hill you begin to pick up speed – Charles Schultz

No man is ever old enough to know better — Holbrook Jackson

None are so old as those who outlive enthusiasm — Henry David Thoreau

True terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country – Kurt Vonnegut

We are not limited by old age; we are liberated by it. — Stu Mittleman

I kind of like the last one.  At least I personally feel liberated right now. I hope at least a few of these made you smile.

Happy old age

  1. I am with Kurt on this one.
    One of my friends said, “the pillars of the community are all dieing ”
    The other said, “We Are the pillars.”
    We all giggled and then laughed!
    Nice, light post.


  2. I think tho older one gets, the more freedom and fears of the unknown leave you. In our younger adult years, we were experimenting with jobs, friendships, and attempting to become someone. Now, we have reached the top of our mountain and no longer have to be concerned about those one time concerns.We have become the person that we want to be and that is sufficient for our everyday life. Age really means nothing,;it means more to have a good attitude about life and to share that positive view with those who are the journey up the mountain to the top.


    1. They call us who eccentric when we have that attitude Mary. 🙂

      But I don’t know if I would agree that age means nothing. I don’t think I would have the wisdom I have without years of experiences. I would have loved to know what I know now at age 16. I think I would probably have made some different decisions about my life.
