6 Best Aging Gracefully Quotes And Sayings

When we talk about aging, it’s easy to forget that the process of growing older is a part of life that we all have to deal with. While many people think of this stage as a time in life when we lose our youthful appearance and energy, it’s far from being a white-haired old man, or a wrinkled crone. In fact, aging gracefully means maintaining our youthfulness and vitality while finding balance in our lives. These quotes about aging gracefully will help you keep your spirit alive even as you age.

It`s not how old you are, it`s how you are...
It`s not how old you are, it`s how you are old. Jules Renard
I don’t ever remember being afraid of “oldness”.There are things I miss about being younger - chiefly the ability to pull all-nighters and keep working and working well; and being smiled at by girls I didn’t know who thought I was cute; and I wish I had the eyesight I had even five years ago… but that stuff feels pretty trivial. I’m happier than I’ve been at any time in my life these days. I have a wonderful wife whom I adore, watched three amazing kids grow into two delightful adults and my favourite teenager, an astonishing number of grand life experiences, I’ve made art I’m proud of, I have real, true, glorious friends, and I’ve been able to do real good for things I care about, like freedom of speech, like libraries. Sometimes I’ll do something like An Evening With Neil and Amanda, or the 8 in 8 project, and completely surprise myself. I miss friends who have died, but then, I’m glad that time gave them to me, to befriend, even for a while, and that I was alive to know them. I knew Douglas Adams, and I knew Roger Zelazny, and I knew John M Ford, and I knew Diana Wynne Jones… do you know how lucky that makes me? Ah, I’m rabbiting on, and I sound a bit more Pollyannaish than I’m intending to sound: I know the downside of age and the downside of time, and I am sure that the view from age 51 is not the view from age 71.I wish the time hadn’t gone so fast, though. And sometimes I wish I’d enjoyed it more on the way, and worried about it less. . Neil Gaiman
Don't be afraid. Change is such a beautiful thing", said the Butterfly. Sabrina Newby
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a Woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she knows. Audrey Hepburn
The older I get, the less I know. It's wonderful--it makes the world so spacious. Swami Chetanananda
