60th Birthday Quotes

Inspirational 60th birthday quotes and sayings for seniors

For a young person, fun is about getting to a vacation destination fast. For seniors, fun is getting out of the doctor’s office as soon as possible. Young parents fret over getting their toddlers to the bathroom quickly, while their parents worry about getting themselves to the bathroom promptly before an accident occurs.

The sentiments found in 60th birthday quotes often parody the realization that “senioriatis” brings more visits to the doctor,
increased incontinence and a host of other problems associated with growing older.

Seniors realize that they possess a wisdom that can be shared with young people in stories that are told to them – over, and over, and over again! But young people can take heart with the realization that a grandparent’s yarn might always include new or previously forgotten details.

One of the disadvantages of becoming a senior is that people often forget things. So why not laugh at the embarrassing
things that are represented by old age? After all, a senior who does something humiliating is likely to forget about it a few minutes later.

But 60th birthday quotes never let them forget!
