This small treasure is a provocative compilation of insights on aging with wisdom, gathered from the great traditions of the world, and the insightful thinkers and writers of all ages. Critics laud this small treasure as "deft, graceful, and beautiful. Readers will be enriched.

Throughout history most successful and long-lived civilizations have held a place of respect for elders, and have benefited from their life wisdom. By and large this tradition is missing today, to the detriment not only of elders but also of society.

This Soul*Sparks title from author Steven McFadden offers a sagacious compilation of keys for adept aging.

True elders are people who have gracefully accepted the passage of time, integrated their life experience with deep understanding, and made the fruit of their long experience available to others.

But how does one do this? How does one become a true elder? This compilation offers keys from wisdom keepers around the world, from all traditions, and from all eras of history.

As reviewers have commented, this book is a “salutary collection of quotations which put the accent on the positive aspects of conscious aging and sharing wisdom with the world.”
