26 Senior Quotes

Senior quotes reveal the world of our older generation. Some elderly persons do not realize what they are entitled to as "senior citizens"; others, live in a world that seems to have forgotten them. The world of these aged people has more to offer than one may realize.

There are many seniors who go on to new careers, to give unselfishly as volunteers, to invest their experience as mentors to those who are just starting out in a career or to those who have had to struggle through an adversity so also experienced by the elderly person in their past. To discount the marvelous resource of our seniors is to say that their vast life experiences do not count for anything; this statement is far from the truth.

The authors as cited below all have various opinions and feelings and dedication to help seniors live a much fuller life as they age. We hope that all of these quotations will help to open up a new way or an additional viewpoint of just how much we should be grateful to those who have gone before us.
