"To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 42 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written.
My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:
1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.
~ 生命不是公平的,但它還是很棒。
2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.
~ 懷疑時,還是往下跨出一小步。
3. Life is too short – enjoy it..
~ 生命太短暫了──享受它吧…
4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.
~ 你的工作不會在你生病時照顧你,但你的朋友和家人會。
5. Pay off your credit cards every month.
~ 每個月付清你的信用卡。
6. You don't have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.
~ 你不需要贏每一場爭論;只要對自己真實。
7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.
~ 在他人身旁哭泣,這比自己一個人哭還要療癒。
8. Save for retirement starting with your first pay check.
~ 為退休存錢,從你的第一筆薪水開始。
9. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.
~ 一談到巧克力,抗拒是沒有用地。
10. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.
~ 和你的過去和平共處,這樣它才不會搞砸你的現在。
11. It's OK to let your children see you cry.
~ 讓你的孩子看到你哭是沒關係的。
12. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.
~ 不要拿自己的人生和他人比,你根本不知道他們的旅程是關於什麼。
13. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it...
~ 假如一段關係必須是祕密,你就不該走進去…
14 Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.
~ 做個深呼吸,這會讓頭腦平靜下來。

17. It's never too late to be happy. But it’s all up to you and no one else.
~ 快樂永遠都不會太遲,但這只能你來決定,不是別人。
18. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.
~ 當那是關於追求你生命中的熱愛時,不要說「不」。
19. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.
~ 點蠟燭、使用好床單、穿別緻的內衣褲,不要留待特別的日子。今天就是特別日。
20. Over prepare, then go with the flow.
~ 做額外的準備,然後順著流走。
21. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.
~ 作怪趁現在,不要等到老了才穿紫色。
22. The most important sex organ is the brain.
~ 最重要的性器官是大腦。
