Jane E. Smith, vice president of college relations at Spelman College, likes to think of life in four quarters. And each of those four quarters teaches different lessons and offers different opportunities for growth.
First Quarter: Ages 1 to 25 years old
” Is just the beginning. It’s about learning the rules of life and learning to walk in life”.
Second Quarter: Ages 26-50 years old
” This the quarter of tests.That’s when you ask “Do I want to be married”Am I urban or suburban? Gay or Straight. This brings lot’s of opportunities but lot’s of challenges as well”.
Third Quarter: Ages 51-75 years old
” We start to know who we are, We say, I am going to put stakes in this. You begin to get such clarity and begin to fall in love with life”.
Fourth Quarter: Ages 75 and beyond
” Life becomes glorious”.
