Funny Quotes About Getting Older — 11 Hilarious Old Age Quotes

funny quotes on age and wisdom

With an estimated 10,000 baby boomers retiring daily in the next decade, the topic of aging is bound to come up often with clients. Instead of shying away from the topic or using euphemisms, face it head on with wit, humor and wisdom.

Here, we have lassoed a roundup of funny quotes from celebrities, authors, politicians, philosophers — just about anyone who has spoken about aging, really — along with some inspirational words that distill years of experience into concise kernels of truth. Read, enjoy, share with your clients — and if you have others that top your list, let us know in the comments section below.

The recipe for immortality

“The boomers will eventually have to accept that it is not possible to stay forever young or to stop aging. But it is possible, by committing to show up for others in community after community, to earn a measure of immortality.”

– Eric Liu

(From BrainyQuote)

What is aging, really?

“Most people don’t grow up. Most people age. They find parking spaces, honor their credit cards, get married, have children, and call that maturity. What that is, is aging.” 

– Maya Angelou


I can sleep when I am dead … but I’m not that sleepy …

“You spend 90 percent of your adult life hoping for a long rest and the last 10 percent trying to convince the Lord that you’re actually not that tired.”  

– Robert Brault

(From CarltonsQuoteCorner)

Waiting a lifetime…

“I had to wait 110 years to become famous. I wanted to enjoy it as long as possible.”  

– Jeanne Louise Calment  (1875-1997)

(From Psychology Today)

Why are snowballs so heavy?

“The aging process has you firmly in its grasp if you never get the urge to throw a snowball.”

– Doug Larso

(From BabytoBoomer)

A chocolate a day keeps the wrinkles away?

“I’m pretty sure that eating chocolate keeps wrinkles away because I have never seen a 10 year old with a Hershey bar and crow’s feet.” 

– Amy Neftzger


No one likes socks

“I have reached an age when, if someone tells me to wear socks, I don’t have to.”

– Albert Einstein

(From Psychology Today)

You’ve made it …

“We’ve put more effort into helping folks reach old age than into helping them enjoy it.”

– Frank Howard Clark


What about MSG?

“Old people shouldn’t eat health foods. They need all the preservatives they can get.”

– Robert Orben  

(From CarltonsQuoteCorner)

Calling a plastic surgeon …

“Maybe it’s true that life begins at 50. But everything else starts to wear out, fall out, or spread out.” 

– Phyllis Diller


Out of sight, out of mind

“Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”

– Henry Ford

(From BrainyQuote)

Never give up, never surrender …

“Nobody grows old merely by living a number of years. We grow old by deserting our ideals. Years may wrinkle the skin, but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul.” 

– Samuel Ullman

(From BabytoBoomer)

Well-aged wine

“I’m like old wine. They don’t bring me out very often, but I’m well preserved.”

– Rose Kennedy  

(From CarltonsQuoteCorner)

A poet’s perspective …

“The afternoon knows what the morning never suspected.” 

– Robert Frost


Death … not today, not today

“From my perspective, there’s no reason to be afraid of aging, because if you age, you’re lucky! The alternative is death.”

– Drew Barrymore

(From BrainyQuote)

Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do when they come for you?

“Old people love to give good advice to console themselves for no longer being able to set a bad example.”

– François de La Rochefoucauld 


Is there an app for that?

“By the time you’re eighty years old you’ve learned everything. You only have to remember it.”

– George Burns

(From Psychology Today)

Adding insult to injury

“There are three periods in life: youth, middle age and ‘how well you look.’” 

– Nelson Rockefeller

(From CarltonsQuoteCorner)

Like a prayer …

Prayer of an Anonymous Abbess:

“Lord, thou knowest better than myself that I am growing older and will soon be old. Keep me from becoming too talkative, and especially from the unfortunate habit of thinking that I must say something on every subject and at every opportunity.

Release me from the idea that I must straighten out other peoples’ affairs. With my immense treasure of experience and wisdom, it seems a pity not to let everybody partake of it. But thou knowest, Lord, that in the end I will need a few friends.

Keep me from the recital of endless details; give me wings to get to the point.

Grant me the patience to listen to the complaints of others; help me to endure them with charity. But seal my lips on my own aches and pains — they increase with the increasing years and my inclination to recount them is also increasing.

I will not ask thee for improved memory, only for a little more humility and less self-assurance when my own memory doesn’t agree with that of others. Teach me the glorious lesson that occasionally I may be wrong.

Keep me reasonably gentle. I do not have the ambition to become a saint — it is so hard to live with some of them — but a harsh old person is one of the devil’s masterpieces.

Make me sympathetic without being sentimental, helpful but not bossy. Let me discover merits where I had not expected them, and talents in people whom I had not thought to possess any. And, Lord, give me the grace to tell them so.


– Margot Benary-Isbert



“There is no pleasure worth forgoing just for an extra three years in the geriatric ward.”

– John Mortimer


Here, have some coffee

“What most persons consider as virtue, after the age of 40 is simply a loss of energy.”

– Voltaire

(From CarltonsQuoteCorner)

Investing in old age

“A stockbroker urged me to buy a stock that would triple its value every year. I told him, ‘At my age, I don’t even buy green bananas.’”

– Claude Pepper


A message from Classical Athens

“He who is of a calm and happy nature will hardly feel the pressure of age, but to him who is of an opposite disposition, youth and age are equally a burden.”

– Plato

(From Psychology Today)

The fountain of youth for you and your clients

“If your customer base is aging with you, then eventually you are going to become obsolete or irrelevant. You need to be constantly figuring out who are your new customers and what are you doing to stay forever young.”

– Jeff Bezos

(From BrainyQuote)

I had the best time of my life

“The other day a man asked me what I thought was the best time of life. ‘Why,’ I answered without a thought, ‘now.’ 

– David Grayson

(From BabytoBoomer)

Getting a haircut

“Inflation is when you pay fifteen dollars for the ten-dollar haircut you used to get for five dollars when you had hair.”

– Sam Ewing

(From QuoteGarden)

How many candles are on your cake?

“Birthdays are good for you. Statistics show that the people who have the most live the longest.”

–Larry Lorenzoni


You reap what you sow

“We are happier in many ways when we are old than when we were young. The young sow wild oats. The old grow sage.”

– Winston Churchill 


Is noon the best time of day?

“Probably the happiest period in life most frequently is in middle age, when the eager passions of youth are cooled, and the infirmities of age not yet begun; as we see that the shadows, which are at morning and evening so large, almost entirely disappear at midday.”

– Eleanor Roosevelt

(From BrainyQuote)

Is it all about context?

“The first 40 years of life give us the text; the next 30 supply the commentary on it.”

    Thank you Tim for your nice comment, and sorry for not replying sooner.

    A funny quote is always good, but a funny quote without wisdom is just a joke. Great and perceptive writers including Woody Allen manage to make people think at the same time as they are laughing :)

  • Tim Truzy 

    17 months agofrom U.S.A.

    This is a funny article which kept me laughing all the way through. I love the Woody Allen quotes. All of them have a bit of wisdom within, especially the ones regarding aging and middle age.

    I will share these with my friends and I look forward to reading more of your articles.

    You have got an impressively huge collection here. Although they say that age is just a number, we all care about this number. Not just a person faces psychological and biological changes growing old, but the peer expectations also develop an unwanted pressure. I hope this collection which has enough sarcasm and fun will help deal with the negative aspects of growing old so that we are able to fully enjoy this wonder called life.

    Great post.

    Paula; Thanks for that Paula. Glad you enjoyed it! You're right - we can't alter the process of getting older, so we may as well take it philosophically and laugh! Alun

    Greensleeves....So glad I came across this fabulous compilation of funny/witty quotes! I love this sort of reading! These are all so ingenious and clever~~like the stuff we wish we'd have thought of!

    It's a good feeling at my age to be able to still laugh (sincerely) over jabs at getting "older." What the heck, might as well laugh because there really isn't anything else we can do to change the calendar! We must maintain a sense of humor.

    I would love to file each of these to memory but why strain my brain when I can carry notes in my purse??

    Thanks for the bright spot in my Tuesday evening! Peace, Paula

    Ivan Bilash; Thank you Ivan, and apologies for not replying to you sooner. I've checked it out and a lot of sources seem to suggest that particular quote was indeed by Mickey Mantle, but others have suggested it comes from Eubie Blake or even Mae West. As you indicate, this is one of the problems with quotes - they do tend to get repeated and reshaped, and sometimes the originator gets forgotten! Thanks a lot. Appreciated. Alun

  • Ivan Bilash

    The quote "If I had known I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself" was expressed by Mickey Mantle. Don't know if it was original or if someone else had previously said this.

    ― Lauren Oliver, Before I Fall

    “Girl scouts didn't teach me what to do with emotionally unstable drunk boys.”

    aesta1; Thanks Mary! There do seem to be more 'old' quotes. Perhaps it's because long life allows a slightly jaundiced yet witty, philosophical viewpoint on the lives of those who experience it? The young don't necessarily appreciate the absurdities of some of their behaviour. :)

    Billie Pagliolo;

    Many thanks Billie. And thanks for your story. I'm sure one of the very best ways for people to stay young in mind and happy in life is to be able to laugh at their own personal circumstances, including the drawbacks of advancing age! And thanks also for backing up Katy's comment - I think I will have to investigate the world of apps a little further! Alun.

    7 years agofrom Essex, UK


    Many thanks for your visit and comment. And for the suggestion! Unfortunately what I know about apps could be written on the back of a very small iphone. But it sounds like a really nice idea. I'll give it a try to see if I prove competent to handle the technology!!

    By the way - love your username. Alun.

    Love it! My 94 year old Aunt Marion was telling me she read a story of a woman in the newspaper who celebrated her 100th birthday. The reporter asked her what she thought about turning 100. "I wouldn't recommend it," was the woman's response. I found it adorable that my Aunt found this funny! BTW...I agree with katywhowaited. This would be a great app- Made one with ibuildapp also called "The Perfect Husband App" - a "cheat sheet" for husbands with words their wives would love to hear. Your quotes would make a great app!

    What a wonderful collection - I'll be bookmarking this one! And I agree with @stickydating, I love that they are broken down by category!

    Thanks Derdriu for your nice comments. And particularly for listing my own contribution!! I don't think it matches up to some of the 'greats', but without mentioning any names I have noticed how a few of the attractive film and TV stars I once fancied when I was a teenager are now succumbing to age-related illnesses! I guess they would have been in their 20s or their early 30s, at the time. Sadly age happens to us all. Even celebrities.

    Greensleeves Hubs: Your hub is such a riotous pleasure to read because it is so attractively organized and because the quotations are hilarious. My favorites are your own original contribution as well as those by Woody Allen, Bob Hope and Jerry Seinfeld.

    Thank you for the fun, voted up, and all else too,

    Thanks Cogerson! I think I'd definitely agree about Seinfeld's quote, and probably Oscar Wilde's. I really like both the Woody Allen death quotes though I must admit I left the grandfather bus driver quote till last because I thought it was the funniest (though whether it constitutes a genuine quote or just a joke is debateable). Glad you enjoyed the list, and thanks for commenting.
