♦ “Life is lost by those who have not prepared themselves for old age. And old age is not about age, but primarily about the loss of muscle tissue. For many it starts at age 20. And the less a person monitors his physical form, the worse his mental state, the more negative emotions control him. I have a half-joking formula: give your youth and youth to your homeland, and keep your old age for yourself. So, I say: don’t keep illnesses for yourself. Enter old age as joy. When you've done everything and can just enjoy life. Then this is real old age, which brings satisfaction. Everyone needs a person, he shares his experience, and does not complain about endless pain.
