In spite of illness, in spite of the archenemy, sorrow, one can remain alive long past the usual date of disintegration if one is unafraid of change, insatiable in intellectual curiosity, interested in big things, and happy in small ways.
– Edith Wharton
Three Great Examples
Frank Lloyd Wright completed one of his most famous buildings, the Guggenheim Art Museum, in his early 90’s.
George Dow Sr., my father, on his 86th birthday danced and sang on Broadway with Hugh Jackman.
Jack Hill, my father-in-law, fully lived Edith Wharton’s words. He lived to age 99.
Who amongst your mentors and role models have lived these words?
How are you living them?
