Advice from the ages for staying fit, smart, and funny . One is that as people get older, their wisdom is expressed by focusing on what is most.

    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 :)

    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.

    Sincerely,

    Tim

    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.

    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.

    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. :)

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    The Wisdom of An Angel

    An angel appears at a meeting of religious leaders and tells their leader that in return for his unselfish and exemplary behaviour, God will reward him with his choice of infinite wealth, wisdom, or beauty.

    Without hesitating, the leader selects infinite wisdom.

    'Done!' says the angel, and disappears in a cloud of smoke and a bolt of lightning.

    Now, all heads turn toward the leader, who sits surrounded by a faint halo of light.

    One of the others whispers, 'Say something.'

    The leader sighs and says, 'I should have taken the money.'

    A Story Written by a Wise Man

    A story for people of all religions and, indeed, none. 

    One night a man had a dream. He dreamt he was walking along the beach with the Lord.  Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene he noticed two sets of footprints on the sand: one belonging to him and the other to the Lord.  When the last scene had flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints and he noticed only one set. 

    He also noticed that this happened during the lowest and saddest times of his life. This bothered him and he questioned the Lord. 'Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you, you would walk all the way with me, but I noticed that during the most troublesome times of my life there was only one set of footprints. I don't understand why, when I needed you most, you deserted me.'

    The Lord replied, 'My precious child, I love you and would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you see only one set of footprints, those were the times when I carried you in my arms.'

    Sticking Together: Another Story by an Astute Man

    A flock of wild geese had settled to rest on a pond. One of the flock had been captured by a gardener, who had clipped its wings before releasing it. When the geese started to resume their flight, this one tried frantically, but vainly, to lift itself into the air. The others, observing his struggles, flew about in obvious efforts to encourage him; but it was no use.

    Thereupon, the entire flock settled back on the pond and waited, even though the urge to go on was strong within them. For several days they waited until the damaged feathers had grown sufficiently to permit the goose to fly.

    Meanwhile, the unethical gardener, having been converted by the ethical geese, gladly watched them as they finally rose together and all resumed their long flight.

    Story by Albert Schweitzer

    Amusing Childhood Perception

    Young Mia, only four years old, returned home from Wicor Nursery School complaining, 'Mummy, I've got a stomach ache.'

    'That's because your stomach is empty,' Sarah, her mother replied kindly. 'You'll feel better when you have something in it.'

    She made Mia a small snack and sure enough, Mia felt better immediately.

    Later that afternoon Mia's class tutor dropped by to see Sarah. While she was chatting with Mia's mum, she mentioned she'd had a bad headache all day long.

    Mia perked up straightaway and announced to her teacher, 'That's because it's empty. You'd feel better if you had something in it!'

    The Shrewd Farmer's Donkey

    One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out a way to get him out. Finally he decided it was probably impossible and the animal was old and the well was dry anyway, so it just wasn't worth it to try and retrieve the donkey.  So the farmer asked his neighbours to come over and help him cover up the well. They all grabbed shovels and began to shovel dirt into the well.

    At first, when the donkey realized what was happening he cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement, he quieted down and let out some happy brays. A few shovel loads later, the farmer looked down the well to see what was happening and was astonished at what he saw. With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was shaking it off and taking a step up.

    As the farmer's neighbours continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he continued to shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, to everyone's amazement, the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and trotted off.

    Will and Guy consider that the moral of this tale is: Life is going to shovel dirt on you. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up.  Through applying wisdom every adversity can be turned into a stepping stone.  The way to get out of the deepest well is by never giving up but by shaking yourself off and taking a step up.

    What happens to you isn't nearly as important as how you react to it.
