Grow Old With Me, The Best Is Yet To Come

"Perhaps middle-age is, or should be, a period of shedding shells; the shell of ambition, the shell of material accumulation and possessions, the shell of the ego."
-Anne Marrow Lindbergh, age 49

 "We are brainwashed about what age you're supposed to marry, what age you're supposed to have a kid, what age you're supposed to do this or that. Oh my God! Who died and left those people in charge?"
-Cyndi Lauper, age 63

"Time and trouble will tame an advanced young woman, but an advanced old woman is uncontrollable by any earthly force.
-Dorothy L. Sayers, age 63

 "Aging is not lost youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength.It's a different stage of life, and if you are going to pretend it's youth, you are going to miss it. You are going to miss the surprises, the possibilities and the evolution that we are just beginning to know about because there are no role models and there are no guide posts and there are no signs."
-Betty Friedan, age 72

" ...old age is like a plane flying through a storm. Once you're aboard, there's nothing you can do. You can't stop the plane, you can't stop the storm, you can't stop time. So one might as well accept it calmly, wisely."
-Golda Meir, age 74

"Mark my words, the time goes fast. And those are the only things that matter. The things that you really had fun with."
-Lily Tomlin, age 76
