The Gift

“Getting older means paring yourself down to an essential version of yourself…nothing extraneous…becoming new again. …As we get older…we discover our capacity to love and communicate and have intimacy–real intimacy, not the superficial intimacy we had in our youth. Strip away the bullsh–; be done with that. Ask yourself these two questions:

Did I learn to live wisely?

Did I love well?”

Jamie Lee Curtis speaking in an interview with AARP, May/June 2008
