You Are Not Declining, You Are A Sage

Don’t accept the modern myths of aging.

You are not declining.

You are not fading away into uselessness.

You are a sage,

a river at its deepest

and most nourishing.

Sit by a riverbank sometime

and watch attentively as the river

tells you of your life.

—from The Tao Te Ching
