Words of Wisdom from Nora Ephron

Nora Ephron, whose death from leukemia was announced this week, was a wise, witty, wonderful woman who wrote on subjects ranging from food, breasts, marriage, good hair, getting older and much else.

Here she is on getting older and the implications of aging, sent in by a member of our Basel group (thanks Janet!):

“You do get to a certain point in life where you have to realistically, I think, understand that the days are getting shorter, and you can’t put things off thinking you’ll get to them someday,” she said.  “If you really want to do them, you better do them.  There are simply too many people getting sick, and sooner or later you will.  So I’m very much a believer in knowing what it is that you love doing so you can do a great deal of it.”

Wishing you all a wonderful summer, doing the things you really want to do…aka Carpe Diem!
