Savishinsky, J. S. (2000).  Breaking the Watch: The Meanings of Retirement in America.
"For most individuals, the formal and public recognition of retirement is commonly marred by the pale content of the official rites mean to dramatize it. These ceremonies tend to be formulaic, predictable, and cliched...
The private and informal ceremonies created for retirees prove to be more fulfilling because of their style, their substance, their process, and their audience. They allow people to leave work on a good note, and give them a sense of control over this transition." (p. 54)
Pollan, S. M., & Levine M. (1998).  Die Broke.
"You need to shift to a more flexible view of work and career, one that abandons the ultimatum of retirement—a false choice between full-time and no time. You can already see the beginnings of the shift to more options in trends towards flex-time, telecommuting, job sharing, part-time professionals, and project-length employment. Those are the early trends you and your peers will be turning into mass movements as we move into the third millennium." (p. 57)
Csikszentmihalyi, M. (1990).  FLOW: the Psychology of Optimal Experience.
"Each of us has a picture, however vague, of what we would like to accomplish before we die. How close we get to attaining this goal becomes the measure of the quality of our lives. If it remains beyond reach, we grow resentful or resigned; if it is at least in part achieved, we experience a new sense of happiness and satisfaction." (p. 9)
Brock, F. (2004).  Retire on Less Than You Think: The New York Times Guide to Planning Your Financial Future.
"What I am opposed to is continuing to work when what you really want to do is retire or perhaps change course. This is especially true if you are burned out or in a dead-end job, as many people in their middle to late fifties find themselves." (p. 33)
Esty, K. C., Griffin R., & Hirsch M. S. (1995).  Workplace diversity.
"Eventual retirement is a fact of life, and a gradual phasing down can often be best for all parties. This process might involve more flexible work arrangements, such as part time work, job-sharing, or home-based work." (p. 59)
