Today’s Question by the reader : Valery

Author: Paulo Coelho

Doctor and writer Nikolai Amosov once said: “There is one particular thing about the old age: there is no future”. Are you afraid of old age?

I think that one doesn’t need to be afraid of old age as long as one tends to one’s inner garden, to one’s soul. Age then does to the person the exact same thing as it does to wine – it gets better with time. The most beautiful thing in my eyes is to be in front of an elderly person that has this serenity and authority that only time bestows in those that are wise.
