Words from a centenarian author

Herman Wouk wrote some pretty fine fiction and won a Pulitzer Prize.

After he celebrated his 100th birthday, his good words (from a WSJ article by Marc Myers) about life are worth a scan!

“when you reach my age, you don’t yearn for friends who are no longer here… I do have the same excitement each morning when I see the sun.  That sense of enjoying being alive is still very real.  When you reach 100, you’re glad you’re alive.  Very glad.”

Atlantic and NPR also cited his longevity and good words:
