My friend used to tell me, "Most people think that being 50 is old, oh...no....50 is really just the beginning. I have less responsibilities, less worries and more freedom...I am starting to live for myself!"
When we are young, we wish that this birthday should never come, but when it does come we realize that it is not so bad, and we appreciate what has come along with age, the wisdom, the maturity, the experience, the knowledge etc. Therefore, many people have noted this important transition and come out with 50th birthday quotes to celebrate this occasion,
”You can finally sell those dreadful diet and exercise books that have sat unopened on the bookshelf for years.”
