Personal Quotes (1)

Being 20 is not better than being 90. It's just different. At 90, I'm more aware of being alive. I'm more appreciative of my life. I'm more compassionate. I'm more patient. I'm more cognizant of what I do. Yes, at 90, it's different AND better! [from her 2013 blog at The Huffington Post]
