Mind Over Matter

“Men do not quit playing because they grow old; they grow old because they quit playing.” ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.

Mr.Holmes said it quite well 

I also have advice to impel

To avoid becoming long in the tooth

Follow my recipe for eternal youth:
 
Cheerful, and playful—each just a dash

Avoid the sun, it causes heat rash

Take a two hour nap everyday

Listen to the gibberish your mum will say

But, more important than the list above

You must exist solely on a diet of

Strained peas, carrots, oats, smashed fruits

That, and stay on top of any grey roots
