One of the Longer Retirement Quotes or Retirement Sayings

on This Webpage

It's All in How You Play the Game, Isn't It?

Let's see now. How will I know when I am a senior.
Hmmmmmmm.....
Some places give me a senior's discount at 55, some at 60 and some
at 65.
My government pension will be sent to me when I am 65.
My company will arbitrarily retire me at 65. (I'm going to beat them
to the punch and retire at 60.)
So that means that parts of our society think 'senior' begins at 55.
How will I personally know?
Well, with a little bit of luck, I don't think I'll ever know.
It's all in how you play the game, isn't it?
— Unknown Wise Person's Submission to a Senior's Website

The Latest Letter from a Reader about

How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free


This letter comes from Blake Wheaton who wrote to me in March 2006 from Burleigh Waters, Queensland, Australia.


Dear Ernie.

I enjoyed reading "The Joy of Not Working" and "How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free." Both have been important books for me. I'm 55 and have worked continuously since I was 11 delivering The Montreal Gazette before 7 a.m. I have lived in Queensland for 31 years and have taught high-school science all that time. Your focus on "purpose" has hit home. I still find purpose in teaching but have decided to cut back to part-time to free up time (especially weekends). Thanks for helping me arrive at that decision - your books have been almost like a sounding board and I'll read them again.

Thanks again.

Yours,

Blake Wheaton

Retired is being twice tired, I've thought
First tired of working,
Then tired of not.
— Richard Armour

 

 

Learn to live well, or fairly make your will;
You’ve played, and loved, and ate, and drunk your  fill:
Walk sober off; before a sprightlier age
Comes tittering on, and shoves you from the  stage:
Leave such to trifle with more grace and ease,
Whom Folly pleases, and whose Follies please.

Alexander Pope (1688–1744), English satirical poet.

The Latest Letter from a Reader about

The Joy of Not Working

 

This letter was written to me in March 2007 by Ayumi Nakabayashi in Osaka, Japan:.


Dear Ernie.

I have just read you The Joy of Not Working and I'm writing to thank you.


I'm a single working mother with twin daughters. What this means is I'm a poor miserable woman in Japanese society, so I am always worried about money for the future more than necessary and never enjoying my present life.

This book gave me a different view of my life, which I should pay attention to. I don't earn much money but enough to live, and have free time to enjoy. I feel excited about thinking how to spend my free time now. I'm making an "Idea Tree" [Get-a-Life Tree] after writing this letter. To read The Joy of Not Working in English is on the top of the list! I have forgotten that I have a lot of things I want to do.


This book gave me a chance to think over the relationship with boring people, too.

I'm sorry I don't have enough words to explain how I feel now in English, but I really appreciate you.

Sincerely,

Ayumi Nakabayashi

 

 

 

 

Retirement Joke

 

A retired man went to a doctor for a general check-up. The doctor told the retiree that everything was fine and that, in fact, he was "in real good shape for a man of 93.”

"That's good to know because I'm getting married in two weeks," said the retiree.

"Getting married! That's wonderful! Who's the lucky bride?" asked the doctor.

The retiree replied, "She's a 27-year-old bar maid I met at the local pub."

"Only 27!" The doctor paused before he advised, "Then you will need some Viagra."

The man replied, "No way, I never take drugs of any type. It's against my principles."

The doctor took some more time before he responded with: "You are in good shape, but nevertheless you are 93. May I suggest that you and your wife take in a boarder?"

"Why a boarder?" asked the retiree.

"Well, you know, at your age," winked the doctor, "you may not be able to do all the things a young woman would like a husband to do around the house. A boarder will be able to help."

The retiree shrugged and said, "I guess you are right," as he walked out of the office.

A year later, the retiree, now 94, came back to the doctor for another checkup. "How's married life?" asked the doctor.

"Amazing, it couldn't be better. I should have remarried years ago."

"How's your wife?" asked the doctor.

"She's doing fine," announced the retiree, "and she's pregnant."

"Pregnant!" exclaimed the doctor. "I take it that you took in a boarder who has fit in quite well?"

"'Yes, and she's pregnant too," grinned the retiree.

Irish Retirement Blessing

May you always have work
for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold
always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright
on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain
to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend
always be near you.
And may God fill your heart
with gladness to cheer you.

Retirement Joke

 

Three sons left home early in life, went out on their own, and all three prospered in their own ways. Getting together one day, they discussed the gifts they recently gave to their elderly retired mother.


The first boasted, "I bought mom a Mercedes limousine and even hired a chauffeur since she can't drive. The limo alone cost over $150,000."

The second replied, "I had a big mansion built for mom. It's worth well over $500,000."

The third smiled and wryly proclaimed, "I've got you both beat. Remember how mom enjoyed reading the Bible? Of course you know she can't see very well. I sent her an awesome parrot that recites the entire Bible. It took elders at a church over fifteen years to train him. He's one of a kind in this world. All mom has to do is name the chapter and verse, and the parrot recites it. I paid more for the parrot than what the two of you spent on the house and limousine."


Not long after, the elderly mother sent out her letters of thanks, with a particular mention of how much she liked each the gifts.

"Jim," she wrote to the first son, "I am too old to travel. I stay home most
of the time, so I rarely use the Mercedes. The driver does nothing most of the day. Besides, he is a bit rude!"

"Todd," she wrote to the second, "the house you had built for me is so huge. I live in only one room. It takes me a whole day to clean the whole house."

"Dearest Eric," she wrote to her third son, "you have the good sense
to know what your mother truly likes. Although a bit more work in preparing it than I am used to, the chicken was delicious."

 

Retirement Quotes

Retirement is a time to make the inner journey and come face to face with your flaws, failures, prejudices, and all the factors that generate thoughts of unhappiness. Retirement is not a time to sleep, but a time to awaken to the beauty of the world around you and the joy that comes when you cast out all the negative elements that cause confusion and turmoil in your mind and allow serenity to prevail.
