May 21, 2007
Wisdom from Polonius


Mason Cooley 

In retirement, only money and symptoms are consequential.


Maggie Kuhn 

Men and women approaching retirement age should be recycled for public service work, and their companies should foot the bill. We can no longer afford to scrap-pile people.


Geoffrey Fisher, Archbishop of Canterbury

Who knows whether in retirement I shall be tempted to the last infirmity of mundane minds, which is to write a book.


Helen Hayes

People who refuse to rest honorably on their laurels when they reach “retirement” age seem very admirable to me.


Thomas Jefferson

I have now the gloomy prospect of retiring from office loaded with serious debts, which will materially affect the tranquility of my retirement.
