Your 40s Quotes By Meghan Daum

Of the countless ways to feel old in your 40s, perhaps none is quite as perplexing as seeing a young person trendily decked out in 1980s-style garb and saying to yourself, 'I can't believe that look is back in style. It was bad enough the first time around!' — Meghan Daum

Your 40s Quotes By Elisabeth Shue

When you get into your 40s, it's all about lighting. It's hard. You have to face whether the way you look is your self-worth or not. Once you get beyond that, it's all about what's in your heart. — Elisabeth Shue

Your 40s Quotes By Daniel Wu

In my 20s, it was easy. In your 40s, it's a lot more challenging. You have to look at it like you're an actor, but you're also a professional athlete. You have to train. — Daniel Wu

Your 40s Quotes By Lisa Edelstein

I've always thrown myself into different kinds of experiences, sometimes into really bad things. But, you grow up. You become more of a woman and you know yourself.

I do resent that when you're in the most cool, powerful time of your life, which is your 40s, you're put out to pasture. I think women are so much cooler when they're older. So it's a drag that we're not allowed to age. — Rosanna Arquette

Your 40s Quotes By Keeley Hawes

When you get into your 40s, the roles do tend to drop off, and I've seen it happening to friends of mine. Hopefully it is improving, and there are female TV executives now who are championing women of all ages in leading roles. But I'm not counting on it. — Keeley Hawes

Your 40s Quotes By Debi Mazar

Enjoy yourself. Just try to be healthy and, you know, and watch it. — Debi Mazar

Your 40s Quotes By Meg Jay

How do you get the happy ending? John Irving ought to know. One of my favorite authors, Irving writes these multigenerational epics of fiction that somehow work out in the end. How does he do it? He says, 'I always begin with the last sentence ; then I work my way backwards, through the plot, to where the story should begin.' Thst sounds like a lot of work, especially compared to the fantasy that great writers sit down and just go where the story takes them. Irving lets us know that good stories and happy endings are more intentional than that.
Most 20 something's can't write the last sentence of their lives. But when pressed, they usually can identify things they want in their 30s or 40s or 60s -or things they don't want- and work backward from there. This is how you have your own multigenerational epic with a happy ending. This is how you live your life in real time. — Meg Jay

Your 40s Quotes By M. C. Gainey

You know what, it's a time honored tradition in movies in America that if you kill enough people in your 30s and 40s and 50s that by the time you get into your 60s you become loveable. — M. C. Gainey

Your 40s Quotes By Eva Mendes

Maybe something that's acceptable in your teens or 20s is unacceptable in your 30s or 40s. — Eva Mendes

Your 40s Quotes By Hanya Yanagihara

I was interested about how relationships change as you get older. You are great friends in your 20s. In your 30s, you get married. Your 40s are all about your kids. In your 50s, you get divorced, and your friendships become primary again. — Hanya Yanagihara

Your 40s Quotes By Jami Attenberg

In your 40s, you shed those who bring you down and surround yourself with the most positive people you know. — Jami Attenberg

Your 40s Quotes By Mark Strong

And I think in your 40s, you land a little bit, physically and mentally, you arrive at a place where you feel you've learned some stuff. Having children at that point meant I had something very useful to do for the next 20 years. — Mark Strong

Your 40s Quotes By Sam Yagan

Your 40s Quotes By David Foster Wallace

The examiners call their children their little Line 40s. That's of course where you enter your CCDC from Form 2441 on the 1040. Some of the children were playing Collections. Near the horseshoe courts. Some of the older children. Liens on the toys, a jeopardy assessment and seizure of some of the smaller childrens' plates; there was some of the usual crying. — David Foster Wallace

Your 40s Quotes By Amy Poehler

What I like about all these giant superhero movies is that they speak to the issues that I'm dealing with - working mother and time management and how to be an interesting, sexual, curious woman in your 40s. — Amy Poehler

Your 40s Quotes By Alan Moore

The one thing with writing stories about the rise of fascism is that if you wait long enough, you'll almost certainly be proved right. Fascism is like a hydra - you can cut off its head in the Germany of the '30s and '40s, but it'll still turn up on your back doorstep in a slightly altered guise. — Alan Moore

Your 40s Quotes By Suresh Raina

It's always good to bat at the top, where you get more opportunities, but sometimes crucial 30s and 40s can be very helpful for the team. Ultimately it is a team sport. Personal records don't matter much if your team ends up on the losing side. — Suresh Raina

Your 40s Quotes By Ruth Bader Ginsburg

My mother told me two things constantly. One was to be a lady and the other was to be independent, and the law was something most unusual for those times because for most girls growing up in the '40s, the most important degree was not your B.A. but your M.R.S. — Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Your 40s Quotes By Dan Jenkins

When you're a fledgling youth-type adult, it appears that all people in their 40s look old enough to be in a painting hanging on the wall of a stately home in England. It's not until you limp into your 70s that people in their 40s look too young to vote, and college cheerleaders closely resemble Yorkshire terriers. — Dan Jenkins

Your 40s Quotes By Dan Savage

My dad and mom were more like World War II-era parents, even though it was the 1960s, because they were both born in the '40s. They were young adults before the '60s even happened, and married, and already having kids. But by the time we were adolescents in the '70s, the whole culture was screaming at parents, "You're a good parent if you're open with your kids about sex." They attempted to be open with us about sex, and it made them want to die, and consequently, it made us want to die. — Dan Savage

Your 40s Quotes By Shirley Knight

When you're a woman in your 40s, it's not the best time to do films, because there really aren't that many roles. Then you reach 50 and there are more roles again. Mother parts. — Shirley Knight

Your 40s Quotes By Sheryl Underwood

Sexually? Your late 40s and 50s? The bomb! — Sheryl Underwood

Your 40s Quotes By Carine Roitfeld

You can be beautiful with big breasts; you can be beautiful in your 40s. If you don't have perfect ankles, still you can move your legs in a certain way and look very sexy. — Carine Roitfeld

Your 40s Quotes By Robert Moog

Back in the '40s and early '50s, building simple electronic projects was a popular hobby of many people. Back then, you could buy, you know, a few parts and - with tubes and build something on your kitchen table, and it would actually work. — Robert Moog

Your 40s Quotes By Zoe Cassavetes

My actress friends would tell me their horror stories, or say they couldn't get work, and were deemed too old, even though they were established and talented and fit and gorgeous. It was frustrating for them and it was frustrating to hear. Maybe because I was the same age as them and it was already hard enough trying to cross over to the 40s without someone judging your every move. — Zoe Cassavetes

Your 40s Quotes By Michael Mina

Of course you do things differently in your 30s and 40s than in your 20s. — Michael Mina

You either have a baby, want a baby, or don't want a baby, but you don't nothing a baby if you're in your 30s or 40s. — Helen Hunt

You can't be seen in your mid-40s wearing leather pants. No leather pants anymore. — Scott Weiland

Your 40s Quotes By Malcolm McLaren

I believe that movies are fast becoming antique and dinosauric as a medium. Film is a medium for the over-40s and television has gone the same way. If you're going to look towards the new generation, then of course you're going to have to be a lot more random, spontaneous, irreverent and provocative with your programming. — Malcolm McLaren

Your 40s Quotes By Marilyn Vos Savant

The 40s are when you start trading your psychological problems for physical ones. — Marilyn Vos Savant

Your 40s Quotes By Cecelia Ahern

Ruby: ... What's so good about being 20? I call them the materialist years. The years we get distracted by all the bullshit. Then we cop on when we hit our 30s and spend those years trying to make up for the 20s. But your 40s? Those years are for enjoying it.
Rosie: Hmmm good point. What are the 50s for?
Ruby: Fixing what you fucked up in your 40s.
Rosie: Great. Looking forward to it. — Cecelia Ahern

Your 40s Quotes By Pete Ploszek

Acting very quickly became a dream of mine, but the acting game privileges youth. It takes a while to build credits and, because of that, it's not the kind of career you can jump into in your 40s or 50s. The ship sets sail by then. — Pete Ploszek

Your 40s Quotes By Timothy Snyder

You might one day be offered the opportunity to display symbols of loyalty. Make sure that such symbols include your fellow citizens rather than exclude them. Even the history of lapel pins is far from innocent. In Nazi Germany in 1933, people wore lapel pins that said "Yes" during the elections and referendum that confirmed the one-party state. In Austria in 1938, people who had not previously been Nazis began to wear swastika pins. What might seem like a gesture of pride can be a source of exclusion. In the Europe of the 1930s and '40s, some people chose to wear swastikas, and then others had to wear yellow stars. — Timothy Snyder

Your 40s Quotes By Lenny Abrahamson

I'm a bit of a late developer, generally. But the good thing about being a filmmaker is you still count as young all the way through your 40s. — Lenny Abrahamson
