“At age 20, we worry about what others think of us”.

“At age 20, we worry about what others think of us. At age 40, we don’t care what they think of us. At age 60, we discover they haven’t been thinking of us at all.”

This quote about age didn’t originate with Ann Landers
Back in March, we debunked a Facebook post that claimed Winston Churchill said: “When you’re 20, you care what everyone thinks, when you’re 40, you stop caring what everyone thinks, when you’re 60, you realize no one was ever thinking about you in the first place.”

Fast-forward seven months and we’re looking at a nearly identical post — only this statement is attributed to the late advice columnist Ann Landers.

“At age 20, we worry about what others think of us,” begins the Oct. 17 post titled “Aging Gracefully.” “At age 40, we don’t care what they think. At age 60, we discover that they have not been thinking of us at all.”
