Why Older People Are Holier

The mind and body are a lot like a machine. At first, the machine runs pretty okay and doesn't have any breakdowns. But with time, the parts get worn and the machine breaks down from time to time, and more and more frequently. The workman turns more and more to the manufacturer for help, and learns that keeping the machine in good running order requires a team effort. This is why older people are generally humbler. They've seen more breakdowns.
