Joy of Ageing - Seminar
at Celebrating Age India Expo 2013
Quotes:

Old age really means the contemplation of truths of God from the higher standpoint.
Realize that you are on an endless journey, a series of important steps
in the ceaseless, tireless, endless ocean of life.

Then," Thou shalt bring forth fruits of old age; they shall be far and flourishing.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, peace, patience, compassion, gentleness, goodness,
faith, meekness and temperance against such there is no law."

Retirement can be a new venture, a second innings, a new challenge, a new path,
the beginning of the fulfillment of a long dream.

You are NOT physically and mentally dead or dying.

It is a false pretense or picture or opinion of the society
which demoralizes seniors into a helpless state of inaction.
Seniors have accumulated wisdom, do-how and know-how, understanding of the vicissitudes of life and necessary temperament to deal with issues, better than younger people.

So, start new ventures, do things which you couldn't do earlier, and
contribute to the society in a manner that befits your passion.
