— Ted Rubin

I'm very pleased with each advancing year. It stems back to when I was forty. I was a bit upset about reaching that milestone, but an older friend consoled me. 'Don't complain about growing old - many, many people do not have that privilege'.
Earl Warren milestone quote

— Pat Riley

Korea's early repayment of the full amount of loans from the IMF is a major milestone.
— Horst Koehler

Only sixteen players have hit fifty or more homers in a season. To me, that's a very special milestone.
