Quality of life and getting old

A quality life has nothing to do with being dealt perfect cards, but has to do with learning how to play an imperfect hand well.  Destiny is the hand you've been dealt, free will is how you choose to play it.  Getting old is the mechanism by which we are forced to tame our egos.  If we cannot let go of the image we once had of ourselves and own the truth of who we are now, then it reduces the length and quyality of our lives.
