If you are turning fifty, my hearty congratulations on the golden jubilee celebrations! Let the wine pour and the music roll, as you watch your life unfurl. Now that you are free of several responsibilities, you can sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Here are some wonderful 50th birthday quotes to keep you rocking for the next decade!

  • Victor Hugo: Forty is the old age of youth; fifty is the youth of old age.
  • TS Eliot: The years between fifty and seventy are the hardest. You are always being asked to do things, and yet you are not decrepit enough to turn them down.
  • Sophie Tucker: From birth to age eighteen, a girl needs good parents. From eighteen to thirty-five, she needs good looks. From thirty-five to fifty-five, she needs a good personality. From fifty-five on she needs good cash.
  • Coco Chanel: Nature gives you the face you have at twenty, but it's up to you to merit the face you have at fifty.
  • Elizabeth Cady Stanton: The heyday of woman's life is the shady side of fifty!
  • Bob Geldof: I do think I feel it but you don't think you are 'cause at a certain time you are no age but you don't think you are anything. You feel the life you have lived. I feel that. It's been a long fifty years.
  • Dawn Wells: Just because a woman is over fifty does not mean she no longer has anything to offer. If anything, we have so much more to offer! We have lived life, we get better with age. I do my best work now in my 60s. Sure, I could retire; but what would I do? Play Bingo? I think not!
  • Cindy Crawford: The face you have at age twenty-five is the face God gave you, but the face you have after fifty is the face you earned.
