From my retired father who loved his job and lived to work:

"It's hard doing nothing, you never know how you're doing or when you're done."

On one of my refrigerator magnets:

“How old would you be if you did not know how old you are?”

Henny Youngman: I've got all the money I'll ever need if I die by four o'clock.

Delahanty, to still-working complainers: Sooner or later, you'll realize that the best days of your life were those when you could get up and go to work.

My dad, who will turn 95 in May, likes to refer to the other residents at the home as "old farts".


One of his favorite quotes is from Satchel Paige: "Don't look back. Something might be gaining on you."

I like this wisdom from Woody Allen:

“In my next life I want to live my life backwards. You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an old people's home feeling better every day. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, and then when you start work, you get a gold watch and a party on your first day. You work for 40 years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You party, drink alcohol, and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for high school. You then go to primary school, you become a kid, you play. You have no responsibilities, you become a baby until you are born. And then you spend your last 9 months floating in luxurious spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day and then Voila! You finish off as an orgasm!”
