Youth is the gift of nature, but age is a work of art. (Stanislaw Jerzy Lec, 20th century Polish poet)
Children can hardly wait to grow up, and many adults wish they could be restored to a youthful age. Learning to be content with your current stage in life is an important but difficult lesson to learn. To age gracefully, gaining experience and wisdom and learning how to share them, is an art. Growing old is inevitable, and it can provide many opportunities to practice the “art.”
The glory of the young is their strength; the gray hair of experience is the splendor of the old (Proverbs 20:29).
