A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams...

Some great quotes about growing older…otherwise known as becoming an Old Guy.  The Old Guys Rule t-shirts, hats, etc. are to be worn as a badge of honor.  They are designed to recognize the accomplishments of a life well spent.  Being aged to perfection means something different to each one of us, but we thought the quotes below sum it up nicely.  Of course, we had to add the Old Guys twist…the first five are serious and the last five are funny.

Seriously, we feel:

Father Time is not always a hard parent, and, though he tarries for none of his children, often lays his hand lightly upon those who have used him well; making them old men and women inexorably enough, but leaving their hearts and spirits young and in full vigor.  With such people the grey head is but the impression of the old fellow's hand in giving them his blessing, and every wrinkle but a notch in the quiet calendar of a well-spent life. 

Charles Dickens

Men do not quit playing because they grow old; they grow old because they quit playing. 

Oliver Wendell Holmes

Beautiful young people are accidents of nature, but beautiful old people are works of art. 
Eleanor Roosevelt

There's no point in being unhappy about growing older. Just think of the millions who have been denied the privilege. 
Cary Grant

A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams. 
John Barrymore

But these made us laugh:

Youth is a wonderful thing.  What a crime to waste it on children. 

George Bernard Shaw

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

Bob Hope

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

John Mortimer

Once you’re over the hill, you begin to pick up speed. 

Charles M. Schulz

The young man knows the rules, but the old man knows the exceptions.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

Here’s to bein’ the Old Guys who are picking up speed, relishing in their checkered pasts, and bein’ loud and proud about it.
