Age is just a number. Life and aging are the greatest gifts that we could possibly ever have.
No one can avoid aging, but aging productively is something else.
We can't avoid age. However we can avoid some aging. Continue to do things. Be active. Life is fantastic in the way it adjusts to demands; if you use your muscles and mind, they stay there much longer.
Charles H. Townes
Everything about aging in my experience so far has been a plus. Except for the dying part.
It's wonderful to know you're aging, because that means you're still on the planet, right?
Don't accept or be crippled by the media hype that aging is bad or shameful.
