“Whichever stage of life we are in right now, with time, we will face the day when the curtain comes down. Treasure love for your family, love for your spouse, love for your friends … Treat yourself well. Cherish others.” — Steve Jobs
Teenagers are famous for thinking they will live forever. The elderly are known for ongoing bouts of reminiscing the past.
