“The older one gets the more one feels that the present must be enjoyed: it is a precious gift, comparable to a state of grace.”
-Madame Curie, 1928
We do become more wise as we get older – and part of that is understanding the precious value of the present moment. Maybe it is because we have more of a past to look back on, so we can see just where and when we experienced the most beautiful times of our lives. And maybe it is because we have had more time to enjoy the moments, and we know how good that feels.
