First Top-10 List of Retirement Farewell Quotes

 #1 Quote of First Top-10 List of Retirement Farewell Quotes

I now now bid farewell to the company that gave me my career — that gave me purpose — that gave me passion; a company whose fortunes have been my fortunes.

— Richard Bach, from Illusions and Messiah's Handbook
 

#3 Quote of First Top-10 List of Retirement Farewell Quotes

In your thirty years with our company, Michael, you have used up three full truck loads of paper, sent out at least 7,000 illegible reports, used up 350 pencils, 1,200 Bic pens, and, worse yet, told over 8,000 bad retirement jokes to lighten up the day for your co-workers. How much money you have made for the organization has always been in doubt, nonetheless, according to the Human Resources Department, as well as how much you ended up saving for retirement. But the rest of us don't care because you were such a great and inspirational person to work with!
— Dave Erhard

Until we meet again!
— Unknown wise person

May your retirement be similar to the experience of a child being out of school for the summer — but the summer never ends. Even more, may your retirement allow you to do what you like as much as possible and what you don’t like as little as possible.
— Dave Erhard

[In Retirement] Promise Yourself:
To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something worthwhile in
them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come
true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect
only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are
about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements
of the future.
To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every
living creature you meet.
To give so much time to improving yourself that you have no time to
criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud word, but in great deeds.
To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side, so long
as you are true to the best that is in you.
— The Optimist's Creed (by Christian D. Larson)

#5 Quote of Second Top-10 List of Retirement Farewell Quotations and Sayings

It’s difficult for me to be making this retirement speech and having to say farewell to Howard — but at the same time I want to wish Howard the best of everything in his retirement. For this reason I have purchased Howard a copy of Ernie Zelinski's international bestseller How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free. Because most of us here have worked in the financial services industry, the subtitle of the book Retirement Wisdom That You Won't Get from Your Financial Advisor is most appropriate for the occasion.
— Dave Erhard

May your imminent retirement allow you to live an extraordinary long life just to see those people enraged who will be most responsible for paying your Social Security and pension for such a long time.
