I particularly love these because, let's be honest, if we are having a bad day or feeling down about the passing years at least we don't have the added pressure of seeing ourselves projected onto a huge screen or plastered over the papers with 'journalists' writing about how we have lost our looks/figures etc. I believe that the more women speak out about the beauty of aging and the positive things that come from the passing of the years, the more future generations will embrace getting older and will wonder what the hell all the fuss was about.
‘There are plenty of things to be anti about: anti-discrimination, anti-drug, anti-oppression, anti-poverty and anti-sickness. Aging isn’t one of them. We need to become pro-aging and embrace the opportunities that aging provides.’ – Jamie Lee Curtis
‘And the beauty of a woman, with passing years, only grows’ – Audrey Hepburn
‘I wouldn't want to be 20 now. I know so much more, and I'm much more comfortable in my skin, saggy as it is ... When I hear young girls complaining about superficial things ... You're at the peak of your physical beauty right now! Just enjoy it and stop worrying about your thighs being too big ... If you're upset with how you look at 25, life's going to be tough.’ - Susan Sarandon
‘We live in a youth-obsessed culture that is constantly trying to tell us that if we are not young, and we're not glowing, and we're not hot, that we don't matter. I refuse to let a system or a culture or a distorted view of reality tell me that I don't matter. I know that only by owning who and what you are can you start to step into the fullness of life. Every year should be teaching us all something valuable. Whether you get the lesson is really up to you.’ --Oprah
‘I actually have better sex — which is the bottom line, is it not? At 60. Because you learn how to, you know, work the vehicle better.’ --Lauren Hutton
‘If you take care of yourself, 60 is nothing for women these days. In today's world you can be the kind of woman you want to be ... Of course, I've aged a bit in the face, but not enough to worry about it. I've common sense enough to know that if I'm nearly 70 something has to give.’ --Tina Turner
