Wise words about "growing older"

This liberating bit from Lee helps put things into perspective.
I never set out to be a revolutionary; I thought that best left to the young. But perhaps they're too busy trying to make it in the same manner as their parents - their contracts, their blurbs, their conferences, their awards, their Oprah - while I couldn't give a damn. Growing old is liberating - when you know you don't have forever, and maybe not very long at all, you think carefully about what you want to do.

Though I still feel there are advantages to ageing, deteriorating teeth isn't one of them. I think I may need a new dentist ...

Thanks for citing me in one of my more mellow moments.
