Cradle to Grave

I was in my mid thirties when I pursued my Doctorate and one of my classmates was in her late fifties.When she told her husband that she wanted to go back and finish a Ph.D he responded by telling her that was rather foolish.He informed her that she would be in her sixties when she finished. Clearly he thought age was an impediment to continued learning. She reflected on his counsel, and initially decided not to return to the University.
After reflecting she thought”either way if I am healthy I will be in my sixties in this time period “so she decided to pursue her dream.After graduation she went on to become a Dean in a University in England and had a marvelous run.
None of us are finished products, and continuing to grow and learn should never be closed because of our age.
