Famous quotes containing the word retired:

    I retired from work and I didn’t want to just sit there and do nothing; I don’t knit and I don’t like TV and I’m no gardener.
    Margaret Demers (b. c. 1917)

    If you want an expert on war, you get a retired general. I’m not exactly a general, but I am retired.
    Sydney Biddle Barrows (b. 1952)

    I will never accept that I got a free ride. It wasn’t free at all. My ancestors were brought here against their will. They were made to work and help build the country. I worked in the cotton fields from the age of seven. I worked in the laundry for twenty- three years. I worked for the national organization for nine years. I just retired from city government after twelve-and-a- half years.
    Johnnie Tillmon (b. 1926)
