Inspirational Quotes About Aging for Seniors
Too often, we view aging with a negative lens. As one considers aging into older adulthood, it is common for one to imagine a frail individual instead of thinking of all the joys that come with aging. The same goes for many seniors themselves as they grow older. Even if they don’t feel old yet, they know it’s coming, and they’re dreading their lost youth.
This, however, is a toxic—and frankly incorrect—view to have. We only live one life, and aging is a beautiful part of that. Not everyone is lucky enough to have the opportunity to age into retirement and meet their grandchildren. Every little step of life presents a new stage of opportunity, and it should be celebrated. If you ever find yourself needing encouragement about the positives of aging, read these inspirational quotes about aging for seniors.
“Aging is an extraordinary process where you become the person you always should have been.” –David Bowie
David Bowie was a glam rock musician widely regarded as one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. His unique signature style and vocals are easily recognizable, and it is something he didn’t give up on in his later years. In fact, Bowie regarded growing older as a positive experience that turns you into the best version of yourself possible.
“Getting older makes you more alive. More vitality. More interest. More intelligence. More grace. More expansion.” –Jamie Lee Curtis
Broadly celebrated actress, Jamie Lee Curtis, was thrust into the limelight at the young age of 19. Her career gracefully adapted as she aged, and she doesn’t look back wishing she could return to that time. In fact, Curtis sees aging as an opportunity for more.
“Age is no barrier. It’s a limitation you put on your mind.”—Jackie Joyner-Kersee
Jackie Joyner-Kersee is a retired Olympian, who won three gold, one silver, and two bronze medals over the course of her time at the Olympic Games. Where athletes are more likely to have a poor relationship with age, Joyner-Kersee does not. In fact, the only limitations she sees brought on by age are the ones people create for themselves.
“The way I see it, every year can be a brand new journey. Think about it: you get one chance to be 25, 38, 44, 61, and every age before and between. Why wouldn’t you want to experience all the wonder in each step on your path?” –Oprah Winfrey
Arguably one of the most well-known individuals in the entire world, Oprah Winfrey is a talk show host, producer, actress, and media mogul. Instead of viewing aging as the end of an era, she sees each new age as a new opportunity. She encourages all to think of it as an extraordinary process to look forward to in addition to all other aspects of life.
“There is a foundation of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life, and the lives of the people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.” –Sophia Loren
Sophia Loren is one of the final surviving stars from the era of classic Hollywood films. Her filmography includes works of art such as Two Women, Houseboat, and The Fall of the Roman Empire. At 88 years old, Loren certainly knows the secret to aging—and that is continuing to breathe life into your interests and life.
