Older Women Quotes
I've always been attracted to women who are assertive and have confidence - qualities older women possess. They've been on the Earth a little longer. They're more seasoned. They don't play games. They know what they want, and they're not afraid to tell you.
I didn't want to let women down. One of the stereotypes I see breaking is the idea of aging and older women not being beautiful.
Older women are best, because they always think they may be doing it for the last time.
We need to hear stories from older women. There's a wealth of wisdom and real resilience there, but they're silenced.
Older women know who they are, and that makes them more beautiful than younger ones. I like to see a face with some character. I want to see lines. I want to see wrinkles.
Older women are like aging strudels - the crust may not be so lovely, but the filling has come at last into its own.
Robert Farrar Capon
I'm drawn to female stories, of which there aren't that many, and particularly to stories now about older women. The things they have to confront and override is really fascinating. That's a whole untold part of our world.
I like to describe myself as a proudly visible member of the most invisible segments of our society - older women.
I hate to generalize, but in general, both men and women suffer from ageism. Men much less because men gain power as they get older. Women lose power as they get older. Men are seen as gaining experience and being distinguished. Sons look forward to replacing their fathers.
I'm really interested in older women, to be honest, because they have lived a life that I've not yet lived. So I really want to learn from them, and I think culturally we tend to dispose of women once they get to a certain age and they don't look a certain way.
Amanda de Cadenet
I think older women still have a full life.
Clearly older women and especially older women who have led an active life or elder women who successfully maneuver through their own family life have so much to teach us about sharing, patience, and wisdom.
I wanted in my lifetime to vote for a radical Native American woman, since my vision of any future that we might have is that it will be led by women and older women.
I so believe that older women have tremendous value to their families, their community, their country, the world.
If you've got the body and the chutzpah, a pencil skirt is so sexy on older women. Look for ones that fall just below the knee. Think 1940s, cinched-in jackets - imagine you are Lauren Bacall on a date with Humphrey Bogart and you just absolutely have to wear very high heels.
While younger women are told to be thinner and prettier, ads for older women emphasize looking younger and wrinkle free - tapping into the insecurities that many of us have about getting older.
I've always liked older women. One sad thing about being my age is that there are no older women. I used to amuse my mother's friends even at five or six with witty turns of phrase. Somehow, I just knew how to be funny.
I'm not interested in dating. I like being with my own best friend, me. Certain women, particularly older women, cannot believe I like going to a social event by myself. But I do.
Reluctant as I am to regard myself as a style icon, I would love to think I could inspire older women to make the most of themselves.
Sex and older women used to be considered an oxymoron, rarely mentioned in the same breath.
I guess I am attracted to older women. I'm looking for a 40-something who has had her heart broken two or three hundred times. She's going to be fun!
If I have to produce movies, direct movies, whatever to change the way Hollywood treats older women, I'll do it. If I have to bend the rules, I will. If I have to break them, I will.
Thank God we're not like America. Everyone wants to look like they're 20. In Europe we admire grown-up women; I think men revere older women.
What we need is more women writers, writing for older women. There are some actresses who have production companies and create their own material, and I truly admire that.
There are some older women out there who are just knockouts, real beauties, and they're not getting the roles they should.
William H. Macy
As a society, I think older women are marginalized, but I think that has changed so much in the last twenty years.
