Forties Quotations

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

In my twenties, I was obsessed with what other people thought of me. In my thirties, it's about my children, my husband, my work. In my forties, it's going to be about me, and I shan't care what anyone else thinks. I can't wait!
Jasmine Guinness

I play- it's kind of like a slice-of-life, LA women in their forties, playing forty kind of what's their friendship like, and what's their life like and so I just play one of the four friends.
Joan Cusack
