Forties Quotations

I have mixed feelings about those sorts of things. When I see it done by interesting young people, I think it's very valid. But when established photographers, people in their forties, copy me and get a lot of money, well, I find that to be very stupid.
Helmut Newton

I'm really still a child of the Forties. I still think about it a lot, about the repercussions of armed conflict. Until 1953 we had rationing. We couldn't buy meat, we couldn't buy pleasurable goods like cigarettes and sweets. I didn't starve - my family were lucky - but I knew what it was like standing in line waiting for foodstuffs.
Eric Burdon

It is in the thirties that we want friends. In the forties we know they won't save us any more than love did.
F. Scott Fitzgerald

Other people get moody in their forties and fifties - men get the male menopause. I missed the whole thing. I was just really happy.
Rik Mayall

If you had asked me when I was 28 and in my wedding dress if I ever thought I would end up in my forties flipping my husband the bird over potato chips, I'd say you were crazy.
Jenna McCarthy
