While a New York Times reporter was at my house interviewing me several months ago, he said something to the effect of, “you keep mentioning fun. Fun must be important to you.” My reply to him was, “if you’re not having fun you’re not doing it right.”
I have thought about it since then, wondering if I have “too much” fun. Then I happened upon this quote which I couldn’t help but pass on.
We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.
~George Bernard Shaw
PS. Has there ever been a time when this quote had more meaning to you?
