…Most artists, be they cobblers or sculptors, composers to virtuosos, poets or scientists, like good wine, are best when they are old. The outstanding difference between such healthy people and the others is that they have found by intuition, genius , or had the luck to learn from a healthy teacher, that learning is the GIFT OF LIFE. A special kind of learning: that of knowing oneself. They learn to know “how”they are acting and thus are able to do “what”they want – the intense living of their unavowed, and sometimes declared, dreams.
