In the end, it isn't the years in your life that count. It is the life in your years - Abraham Lincoln
One fact remains constant to us all, and that's death. We are not guaranteed of tomorrow because no living human is too old to die, even a newly born. Remember, age is also a number.
Therefore, let us always do good, help the poor, care for the sick and less privileged, forgive transgressions and most importantly, extend the hands of love to everyone we come across.
By doing this, we would have added an abundance of life to our years, regardless its number. Recall that Jesus Christ Himself died at 33

One Day or Day One, you decide - Unknown
We all intend to become great in life. However, we should also understand that it doesn't take one day to become great. Rather it takes many days of work, practice, diligence, failures and successes to become great.

Whatever you are, be a good one - Abraham Lincoln
If you are a boy, be a good boy. If you are a girl, be a good girl. If you are a man, be a good man. If you are a woman, be a good woman. If you are a student, be a good student. If you are a teacher, be a good teacher.
I can go on and on; but the point is: You are human, so do all in your power to be a good human
