About growing older...

Never squat with your spurs on

Will Rogers, who died in a 1935 plane crash,

was one of the greatest political sages this country has ever known.

Some of his sayings: 


First ~ Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age

and start bragging about it. 

Second ~ The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for. 

Third ~ Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me; I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved. 

Fourth ~ When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth,

think of Algebra. 

Fifth ~ You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks. 

Sixth ~ I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top. 

Seventh ~ One of the many things no one tells you about aging is that it's such a nice change from being young. 

Eighth ~  One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been. 

Ninth ~ Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.  

Tenth ~ Long ago, when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks,

it was called witchcraft.

Today it's called golf. 

And, finally ~ If you don't learn to laugh at trouble, you won't have anything
to laugh at when you're old.
