Passion for something only lasts 3-4 years. Go hardcore for those years and then move onto your next passion.

This is a very interesting and different perspective to think about. Maybe you're right...rather than dabbling in something over decades, concentrate with all your passion on one thing until that passion subsides, and then move on. Maybe much more would be accomplished that way, if one does want to accomplish anything at this age. Really something to think about, at any age.

To young girls ... each night take care of your neck.
You can hide your legs with long pants or skirts and look nice.
You can hide your arms with long sleeves and look nice.
You cannot hide a double chin or turkey neck.

The older I get (now 49), the more I realize just how short life is.

Yes, Life is like a roll of toilet paper. The closer you get to the end, the faster it goes.
