Aging can feel like a chore to seniors, so liven their day up by reading these quotes on aging, and see if they agree with our breakdown of them. If nothing else, this will provide you with an opportunity to spend time with your senior loved ones and engage in a healthy conversation with them. Here are a few of our favorite quotes on aging for seniors and what we feel those quotes mean.
“When you get to my age, you’ll really measure success in life by how many of the people you want to have love you actually do.” When we take the time to really look into this quote from Warren Buffet, it is eye-opening. These days, many people measure their success in life based on money and possessions. But, this post helps to show those still in the early stages of their life, that there is a lot more that they should be working on, including their relationships with people. As you near the end of your life, it is not about the money you have in the bank or the expensive cars you once drove, it is about the love and people you have surrounding you.
“Don’t try to be young. Just open your mind. Stay interested in stuff. There are so many things I won’t live long enough to find out about, but I’m still curious about them.” Betty White is a wise senior. We believe that her quote is trying to tell people that there is no reason why you cannot continue to learn, broaden your horizons and expand your mind, even as a senior. Seniors can enroll in college courses or sign-up for activities that enrich their lives and feed their brains. Aging should never stop someone from educating themselves and exploring topics that speak to them.
“We are always the same age inside.” There are many unique ways that you can interpret this quote from Gertrude Stein. To us, it is a reminder that although your body may be aging, you are still the same person you have always been on the inside. Being elderly does not change your personality, your interests and your accomplishments in life. If you have always been a caring or funny person, you are still that same caring or funny person. Many seniors start to lose their identity as they retire and stop working, but it is important to know who you are and carry that with you as you continue to age.

“One day you will look back and see that all along, you were blooming.” Morgan Harper Nichols’ quotes on aging provides a good reminder for seniors, and a good reminder for anyone who is struggling with life in general. Life can be confusing, and as you go through life, you may wonder why something happened or whether you have changed as a person. It may not make sense at the time, but one day, when you are older, you will look back on your life and see your growth. You will see how you grew and bloomed as a person, and how everything made you who you are today.
“Laughter is timeless. Imagination has no age. And dreams are forever.” Walt Disney is a timeless figure who has helped children and adults embrace fantasy and imagination. One of the quotes that he left us with reminds us that no matter how old we are, we all deserve to continue to laugh, imagine and dream. Those items are not put on hold because you become an adult or even because you are a senior. Continuing to live a fulfilling life and having hopes and dreams at any age is important.
We hope that these quotes have given you and your senior a fun activity to do and that you have enjoyed spending time together.
