  Famous retirement speeches and quotes

When a man retires, his wife gets twice the husband but only half the income.
Chi Chi Rodriguez quotes (Puerto Rican golfer, b.1935)

Nothing is more usual than the sight of old people who yearn for retirement: and nothing is so rare than those who have retired and do not regret it
Charles de Saint-Evremond

When you retire, think and act as if you were still working; when you're still working, think and act a bit as if you were already retired.
Anonymous quotes

Sooner or later I'm going to die, but I'm not going to retire.
Margaret Mead

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

Preparation for old age should begin not later than one's teens. A life which is empty of purpose until 65 will not suddenly become filled on retirement.

The question isn't at what age I want to retire, it's at what income.
George Foreman

Men seek out retreats for themselves in the country, by the seaside, on the mountains... But all this is unphilosophical to the last degree... when thou canst at a moment's notice retire into thyself.

The harder you work, the harder it is to surrender.
-Vince Lombardi

Preparation for old age should begin not later than one's teens. A life which is empty of purpose until 65 will not suddenly become filled on RETIREMENT.

Thank God every day when you get up that you have something to do that day which must be done whether you like it or not. Being forced to work and forced to do your best will breed in you temperance and self-control, diligence and strength of will, cheerfulness and content, and a hundred virtues which the idle will never know.
-Basil Carpenter

Retirement at sixty-five is ridiculous. When I was sixty-five I still had pimples.
George Burns

I am closing my 52 years of military service. When I joined the army, even before the turn of the century, it was the fulfillment of all my boyish hopes and dreams.
The world has turned over many times since I took the oath on the plain at West Point, and the hopes and dreams have long since vanished, but I still remember the refrain of one of the most barracks ballads of that day which proclaimed most proudly that old soldiers never die; they just fade away.
And like the old soldier of that ballad, I now close my military career and just fade away, an old soldier who tried to do his duty as God gave him the light to see that duty. Goodbye.
- General Douglas MacArthur, in a speech to a joint session of the U.S. Congress

Retirement : Statutory senility.

Don't simply retire from something; have something to retire to.

I will not retire while I've still got my legs and my make-up box.
Bette Davis quotes (American actress, 1908-1989)

Retirement is the ugliest word in the language.

-Danny McGoorty Irish Pool Player

It is time I stepped aside for a less experienced and less able man.
