Thank you for the Wisdom of those who are older

I have learned much from those older than I. I believe their wisdom is often overlooked and seldom appreciated. This is an example of the wit and lessons so many of us still need to learn.

By Mary Ready

You’re only young once, but you can be immature for a lifetime.
To me, old age is always twenty years older than I am.
Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter
The man never grows old who keeps a child in his heart.
Those who love deeply never grow old.
As a white candle in a holy place, so is the beauty of an aged face.
We didn’t stop dancing because we grew old; we grew old because we stopped dancing.
To avoid the grumpiness that sometimes accompanies aging, may we all- in the coming new year- continue dancing.
