These sayings about aging are all from unknown sources, they are positive words of wisdom on getting older. It is so important to keep a positive attitude about getting older, it’s surprising now much we generally just accept all of the negative things that are ‘supposed’ to happen, just because of our aging.
The couple in the photo-quotes on this page are my parents, William & Doreen. They both appreciate that although they cannot manage to do all the things they used to be able to do, they are blessed and keep themselves busy doing things they enjoy, knowing that a positive attitude to getting older makes all the difference.
