Draper’s Book of Quotations for the Christian World comes this wonderful reminder:
Age is a quality of mind. If you have left your dreams behind, If hope is cold,
If you no longer look ahead, If your ambitions’ fires are dead, Then you are old.
But if from life, you take the best, And if in life you keep the zest, If love you hold; No matter how the years go by, No matter how the birthdays fly You are not old.
