rjennish When you get a lot of money early in life, you can enjoy it more. Of course, wisdom comes with age, so you can screw up too, but my parents are 90, in and out of the hospital, and mostly take naps. They could win the lotto and it wouldn't make a significant difference in their quality of life.
There are scores of sayings on aging, and the toll it takes on human aspirations. Aging is imminent, we cannot escape from it. Aging is different from growing up. “Growing old is mandatory but growing up is optional “said Chili Davis. A majority of the people are under the wrong opinion that life is lost once they attain their middle age. But this is not so. There are great examples of those who have achieved great things in their middle age. When middle age people are blamed for most of their inactions, it is time that they change their attitude. “Middle age is when broadness of the mind and narrowness of the waist change places”. All things try to wear out, spread out or fall out. But only if the right approach and perspective are followed, it is feasible to make middle age interesting, meaningful and useful to others and the self, as well.
