A New Role for Aging

A new model for aging is needed. Instead of trying to be gray-haired teenagers still grabbing for the imaginary gusto of youth or, conversely, slipping into the depressive role of useless baggage, waiting to die, we must recapture the traditional role of elder, or sage.

~William Martin,
in the Introduction to his
The Sage's Tao Te Ching
