Knowing A Little Bit Of Good

A   L   O   H   A !
" One nice thing 
about growing older,
is less pressure to 
appear smart,
more time and space
so simply enjoy 
being wise. "
                   Cloudia Charters








 “ When an old one dies, 
a library burns down. ”  

African proverb









“ Knowing
 all truth
 is less than 
doing
 a little bit of 
good. ” 

 Albert Schweitzer

A wonderful thought, Cloudia! It's worth pondering. You have a grasp of what is essential and can separate it from the rest.

Growing older is fine. I wouldn't be a teenager again for any body.
Some wisdom would be nice though - something to aspire to.
