“Growing old happens in the mind; it is therefore uniquely variable in humans. After twenty years, any dog is an old dog; after three, any mouse is an old mouse, after one hundred, any blue whale is a very old blue whale. In all these creatures, biological age is the only age that counts, yet everyone knows people who are young at 80 and others who seem old at 25.
The great Renaissance man Sir Francis Bacon held a caustic opinion of old people who ‘object too much, consult too long, adventure too little, and repent too soon.’ This is the kind of old age everyone wants to avoid. Fortunately, nothing in our physical makeup forces it upon us. If you don’t want to grow old, YOU CAN CHOOSE NOT TO.”
Deepak Chopra, in “Ageless Body, Timeless Mind”
