Addendum to the Post Below

From Edith Wharton, A Backward Glance, quoted by Nancy Verde Barr in Backstage with Julia:

In spite of illness, in spite even of the archenemy sorrow, one can remain alive long past the usual date of disintegration if one is unafraid of change, insatiable in intellectual curiosity, interested in big things, and happy in small ways.
