Elderly advice

A long time ago I met an old man in a far off unknown city. We chatted for a while and I asked him how come he was so peaceful and happy inspite of having nothing much to be happy about. He must've been living on alms, I thought. He smiled through his wrinkles and said- 'Want to be happy? Then don't cry when you win and don't celebrate when you lose'

  1. I like talking to the elderly. They have so much to share. And they have been were you are headed. They can be fascinating.
