George Burns Love Quotes and Sayings

2. Age to me means nothing. I can’t get old; I’m working. I was old when I was twenty-one and out of work. As long as you’re working, you stay young. When I’m in front of an audience, all that love and vitality sweeps over me and I forget my age.

3. Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.
