||The Virtues of Aging (Library of Contemporary Thought)
by Jimmy Carter
Paperback - 140 pages (October 1998)
Ballatine Books (Trd Pap); ISBN: 0345435938
"We are not alone in our worry about both the physical aspect of aging and the prejudice that exists
toward the elderly, which is similar to racism or sexism. What makes it different is that the prejudice
also exists among those of us who are either within this group or rapidly approaching it. When I have
mentioned the title of this book to a few people, most of them responded, 'Virtues? What could
possibly be good about growing old?' The most obvious answer, of course, is to consider the
alternative to aging. But there are plenty of other good answers--many based on our personal
experiences and observations." -- from THE VIRTUES OF AGING
