Retirement Quotes

Retirement is still several years from now for most of us. Although occasionally it's mentioned in our messages. Marynat at times probably fed up with the ways of the bureacracy thinks of retiring soon. Danny also says he is thinking of retiring in the Philippines.

I'm not thinking about retiring yet but I do get frequent reminders about my age. Dati, ang apud sako 'manong' o 'kuya', ngonyan pag malunad sa tricycle an hapot kan driver - Saan pa kayo 'tay? One time when returning from Calamba to Manila, I was surprised when the conductor gave me my change, akala ko sobra nin P10 ang sukli. Then I noticed that the receipt had "senior citizen" indicated! Papasalamatan ko ba o mumurahin iyong konductor?

Here are some quotes about retirement. Still a respite from the serious matters that we've been discussing. As usual, there's no closure yet on the broad band issue. Now, there's a new one - the impeachment complaint "suhulan" issue allegedly by the Deputy Sec Gen of KAMPI, which is GMA's political party. Nothing's new as far as the dirty tricks of GMA are concerned. Rather than dwelling on this matter this morning and lest our blood pressure shoots up so early, just enjoy the quotations below. May tawad na joke pa sa huli!

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.
J. Lubbock

Retire from work, but not from life.
M.K. Soni

Don't simply retire from something; have something to retire to.
Harry Emerson Fosdick

There are some who start their retirement long before they stop working.
Robert Half

The best time to start thinking about your retirement is before the boss does.
Author Unknown

Retirement means no pressure, no stress, no heartache... unless you play golf.
Gene Perret

Retirement is like a long vacation in Las Vegas. The goal is to enjoy it the fullest, but not so fully that you run out of money.
Jonathan Clements

When you retire, you switch bosses - from the one who hired you to the one who married you.
Gene Perret

When a man retires, his wife gets twice the husband but only half the income.
Chi Chi Rodriguez

Retirement kills more people than hard work ever did.

Malcolm Forbes

The trouble with retirement is that you never get a day off.

Abe Lemons

Eto naman iyong joke, pang-senior citizen din.
Old lady goes to Dr. "I have a problem with gas, but it really doesn't bother me too much. The farts never smell and are always silent. As a matter of fact, I've farted at least 20x since I've been here and I bet you didn't even notice.
Dr: I see, take these pills and come back next week.
Next week, lady goes back. "Dr., I didn't know what the hell you gave me. But now, my farts, although still silent, stink terrible!"
Dr: Very good! Now that we've cleared up your sinuses, let's work on your hearing.
