Retirement Quotes

Most people retire after reaching a certain biological age. Some people retire sooner if they are able to. Those who have worked for the government or an organization that requires twenty or thirty year of service may retire sooner than others. Either way, retirement is a time to celebrate and to look forward to the beginning of a new life adventure.
