Quotes About Getting Older For Everyone Who's Young At Heart

Getting older is, when you think about it, really just a personal decision. Some people just opt out of it completely and stay young at heart. Others, like Lucy, just sort of obscure the truth.

Here are some quotes for everyone out there staying young (or just saying they are)!

From Bette Midler:

"After thirty, a body has a mind of its own."

I'm not quite thirty yet, but I'm glad I know I better prepare myself for when it happens!

From George Burns:

"You can't help getting older, but you don't have to get old."

I love this way of looking at it! I feel like I've been old my whole life, but maybe it's time to flip the switch.

From Bob Hope:

"Middle age is when your age starts to show around your middle."

This is a nice way to look at it — be proud of the proof you've survived, not ashamed!

From Keith Richards:

"Getting old is a fascination thing. The older you get, the older you want to get."

I like this because it appeals to the competitive nature in all of us. I bet I can get older that you can!
