35 Aging Quotes

Aging is a natural process all individuals encounter as time passes by. Many aspects of aging include chronological, biological, psychological, behavioral, and social/interpersonal. Chronological aging is proportional to the years a human is alive. The speed of physiological aging depends on the genetic makeup and lifestyle of an individual. Also, the physical, mental, and emotional ages of each person vary. Like a fine wine, people get better as they grow old. Experiences allow us to learn from our mistakes. Being able to see more things as we age, the outcomes and consequences of our actions mold us in how we react to different problems. We can assess the situation better than our younger counterparts; and someday, we’ll look back at our past selves and laugh at our decisions. May these Aging Quotes inspire you to take action so that you may live your dreams.

7. “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

8. “We are not victims of aging, sickness and death. These are part of scenery, not the seer, who is immune to any form of change. This seer is the spirit, the expression of eternal being.” Deepak Chopra

9. “Of all the self-fulfilling prophecies in our culture the assumption that aging means decline and poor health is probably the deadliest.” Marilyn Ferguson

Aging is just another word for living. Cindy Joseph

11. “Aging seems to be the only available way to live a long life.” Kitty O’Neill Collins

12. “Aging gracefully is about no heavy makeup, and not too much powder because it gets into the wrinkles, and, you know, to not get turtle eyelids and to not try to look young.” Iris Apfel

13. “The thing about aging is all your old lovers, pretty much if they were really friends, become your family. It’s great. You have those terrible feelings of possessiveness and uncertainty go out the window. You have what you shared. You know you would help each other in times of trouble no matter what.” Gloria Steinem

14. “Only 20 percent of our longevity is genetically determined. The rest is what we do, how we live our lives and increasingly the molecules that we take. It’s not the loss of our DNA that causes aging, it’s the problems in reading the information, the epigenetic noise.” David Andrew Sinclair

Learning that you can age well, will actually help you to age better, let’s start celebrating and living an engaged life, and stop punishing ourselves for not looking a certain way, and instead holding ourselves accountable for actually taking care of ourselves inside first, knowing the results on the exterior will be a shining side effect.” Cameron Diaz

19. “How do I confront aging? With a wonder and a terror. Yeah, I’ll say that. Wonder and terror.” Keanu Reeves

It happens whether I like it or not and no one is set apart from growing old; it comes to us all. Youth passes from everyone, so why deny it? I’m proud of my age. I’m proud that I’ve survived this planet for as long as I have, and should I end up withered, wrinkled and with a lifetime of great wisdom, I’ll trade the few years of youth for the sophistication of a great mind, for however long it lasts.” Donna Lynn Hope

23. “I don’t believe in aging. I believe in forever altering one’s aspect to the sun.” Virginia Woolf

24. “No age of life is inglorious. Youth has its merits, but living to a ripe old age is the true statement of value. Aging is the road that we take to discern our character. Fame and fortune can elude us, but character is immortal. We must encounter a sufficient variety of experiences including both failures and accomplishments in order to gain nobility of character.” Kilroy J. Oldster

25. “The ordinary experiences of aging alter and clarify your view of past, present, and future.” Edith Pearlman

The ordinary experiences of aging alter and clarify your view of past, present, and future. Edith Pearlman

A successful old age may lie not so much in our stars and genes as in ourselves.” George E. Vaillant

34. “Age is inevitable. Aging isn’t.” Marv Levy
