To have reached that stage
When people look old
Who are only my age.

- Dave Allen



Old age is no place for sissies.

- Bette Davis



I prefer old age to the alternative.

- Maurice Chevalier



The problem with getting old is that all the bits that should be dry are wet and all the bits that should be wet are dry
