Good morning. :)
Gray hair does not make an elder; one can grow old and still be immature. A true elder is truthful, virtuous, gentle, self-controlled, and pure in mind.
“It’s important not to rush through life so much that you don’t find time to do the things you really should be doing.”
“What things do you wish you’d made more time to do?”
“I wish I’d learned to drive a racecar. Learned to cook. Followed up with a certain young lady. I wish I’d read more. I’ve got this stack of books I’m going through now, but I should have read them 50 years ago. I’m even reading Harry Potter!”
these people are amazing!!!
“You’ve got to learn to approach everything with a happy mindset— even the things you don’t want to do.”
“That sounds difficult. How do you do that?”
“Well, I was almost crushed by a wall of mud while working on a construction site. So that helped to change my viewpoint a bit.”
