Quote To Life

In youth we can do all things.
In middle age we can still dream.
Seniors can only reminisce.

So pensive Paula! Congratulations on your win but, I have to say I still have dreams but very different from childhood and younger days. One of those dreams involves writing poetry and improving on it. Anyway...blessings to you! Thank you for this food for thought.

Thank You, for writing and for adding Confucius. Half the battle is a healthy body/mind. Once gone, it is over. Love your ending lines. We need Sanity??? I am in trouble. Hahaha. Have a great day..............

If one can maintain a healthy working mind, the more mature person, can still play the game, with intellectual gusto and one would anticipate, joy. Easier if one is not a poet, because that throws all cards up in the air, with regards to sanity.

subject to reasonable health and no financial worries, seniors yet have a feeling of fulfilment, in joy and contentment in the company of friends, family, nature. Meditation makes for inner vibrancy, otherwise joyous aloneness becomes despondent loneliness

Yeah I hear it a lot from over 80s especially. I never did anything wrong but got cursed by taking a doctor's recommended drug for me and if not for that, my 60s could be golden

Thanks for your note. Many say 70 is the new 50 until they have health problems. My dear friend (now dead) said, the golden years are not so golden. She was right for many.  Have a great day..............

Paula, this is absolutely true, and wisely penned. I think I'm at the 3rd stage of reminiscence.
