The (mid) 40s are the new...

... I don't have an answer for that. But as I turn 46 today, I feel more 30s than 50s so I'm not complaining.


I'm giving myself a little birthday break from my regular Friday posting. But I wanted to take a minute and share some wise words on "getting older" from others. Hopefully they will inspire you at whatever age or stage you're in.


(If you're not a runner, forgive the running quotes. Or, better yet, start running!)



"Growing older is mainly an ordeal of the imagination." Susan Sontag


"The first forty years provide the text, the next thirty provide the commentary." Arthur Schopenhauer


"You don't stop running because you get old. You get old because you stop running." Jack Kirk,

a 96 year old super runner from one of my favorite books, Born to Run.


"Every run is a gift."


"Aging is an extraordinary process where you become the person you always should have been."

David Bowie


"There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of those you love. When you learn to tap this source you will truly have defeated age."

Sophia Loren


"Gray hair is a crown of splendor. It is attained by a righteous life." Proverbs 16:31

The point of our lives is to point to God.

(And we can do that at any age!)
