Counsel for Aging

Today’s collection has been accumulated over the past several years from various sources.  Perhaps you have read some of them before.  Maybe you will get another smile from them today. They have been put together under the title:

Things I have learned while growing older:

  • There is always a lot to be thankful for.  For example, I’m sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don’t hurt.


  • Families are like fudge, mostly sweet, with a few nuts.
  • My mind not only wanders;  sometimes it leaves completely.
  • Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
  • Age doesn’t always bring wisdom, sometimes it comes alone.
  • As we slide down the bannister of life, may the splinters never point the wrong way.
  • The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe we are above average drivers.
  • There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big deal about your birthday.  That time is age 11.
  • It’s hard to be nostalgic when you can’t remember anything.
  • I’ve learned that two people people can look at the exact same thing and see something totally different.
  • I’ve learned that you should  always leave loved ones with loving words.  It may be the last time you see them.
