Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old by deserting their ideals. You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair.

Hi, Avs,

Thanks for this nice quote and I enjoyed it very much.

You cannot help getting older, but you don't have to get old - George Burns. Let's enjoy something good from the book - The best of Bits and Pieces.


One of the things that impress most of us as we grow older is how many nice people there are in the world. Even people we used to find annoying or downright irritating donít seem to bother us so much. We discover that many of the ones we didnít particularly like really arenít as bad as we thought.

Maybe we are a little smarter than we used to be. We have begun to understand why prickly pears are prickly and make allowance for it. Other people appreciate the change in the way we react to them, and it makes them more friendlier toward us.

Taking this tack makes for smoother sailing. Life becomes friendlier and more enjoyable. You learn to forgive and forget. Those who donít learn this miss out on the warmth and friendship they might enjoy.


Best regards,


From China, Shanghai
