Retirement Quotes


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


“Retirement is wonderful. It’s doing nothing without worrying about getting caught at it” – Gene Perret


“A retired husband is often a wife’s full- time job” – Ella Harris


“I enjoy waking up and not having to go to work. So I do it three or four times a day” – Gene Perret


“When you retire, you switch bosses – from the one who hired you to the one who married youx – Gene Perret


“But what, it may be asked, are the requisites for a life of retirement? A man may be weary of the toils and torments of business, and yet quite unfit for the tranquil retreat. Without literature, friendship, and religion, retirement is in most cases found to be a dead, flat level, a barren waste, and a blank. Neither the body nor the soul can enjoy health and life in a vacuum.”
— Richter

Retirement Poems


Age is opportunity no less,
Than youth itself, though in another dress,
And as the evening twilight fades away,
The sky is filled with stars, invisible by day.
— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Enjoy the Spring of Love and Youth,
To some good angel leave the rest;
For Time will teach thee soon the truth,
There are no birds in last year’s nest!
— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
