Birthday quotes

This year, for my birthday, I devised a plan to tweet a quote about age every hour on the hour. Thank good for tools that make it possible to program tweets in advance. Here is the list of all the quotes I used. I loved looking through a lot of quotes about age, aging and getting older and these were just the ones that made the cut
