A recent birthday present from a good friend of mine. It is a collection of quotes from the famous, infamous, and some who have nothing to do with fame, all based upon aging. Some are quite funny, some thought provoking, and some just obvious. But, something good to pick up every now and then for some perspective. The gentleman who was kind enough to give this, is an octogenerian, it must help to have perspective.

While it certainly makes you feel optimistic about aging, I think the most important thing I learned from this book is how contradictory the advice is. So, yay, no one grows old the same way.
