The most important virtue for anyone, at any age..."Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." And do it with a sense of humor.

flowerforce ...... yes compassion. it's interesting that our cultured and religious world has had to create the virtue of compassion when you and i, if we can just relax in our selves in with another person, compassion disappears in favor of a healthy and holy life. i'm healthy and beautiful in my own way but my health and beauty expands in a loving relationship. the taoists ..... lao tzu & chuang tzu ..... knew when they wrote about yin and ying, up an down, night and day. there is a lovely photo book ..... homage to the himalayas ..... by a french photographer, olivier follmi, in which i see faces among the poverty and frozen climate and easy buddhism that i've never seen here, among us. there's a lesson for us in these lovely faces.

force of flowers ..... life is a river, if we can believe the taoists, and life is a dance. a river dance. i care about you, which is the first note of the song. when the river begins as a trickle flowing from a tarn nestled among ice peaks, it is still a river, it is still itself. i have compassion for you without ever knowing you. i look at your photo and i see beauty and depth and poetry. compassion flows from that.

"Faith , Hope, and Love ." The greatest of these is Love.
I am still trying to figure out how I got this damn old . LOL
Some of the things I have learned in my live is that ,you cannot fix people , just love them for who they are . Someone said that courage is the most important viture. I sadly find that virtue lacking in lots of women my age. Lots say that they want love and companionship , but are too afraid of commitment. I am not the man that cheated on you. I am not the man that played with your emotions. Move on and give me a chance to love you. I know that sounds like its easy , and I realize that for some it is not, but at least for myself , I refuse to believe that love and having a relationship at this age is not impossible. We have all been hurt in past relationships , but mine are in the past , and I still look forward to meeting that woman, who has the courage to put past realtionships in the past, and moves on with the belief that there is someone out there that is not out to use them, but just to love them. So perhaps, courage , love , and humor are all important. Steve

"Faith,hope and love"...the fundamental virtues of the spiritual life of secular Franciscan...

But love...as virtue...can be even worst than curse...bad love...controlling etc.

Being down to earth and having no illusions about where they are at in their lives. Doesn't matter if they are the most active, fit, and healthy people you know. I'm all for being young at heart. But they'd better have a grip on the fact that it's soon going to be the bottom of the ninth inning and there's no extras in this game.

virtuous...

it's such a "holier than thou" term to describe people of our age...to me it evokes thoughts of a prim, proper lifestyle...

booooring!

this in no way describe's me...
although upon reflection i have nearly another year to kowtow and conform to the expectations of the lifeless over 60s...

I agree with the Byte. Character.

And I'll add the willingness to stand up for or hold out for whatever you believe is the right thing.

Oldfolkie said it best:
It is a tough question! I think that I would have to say "humor". If you can laugh at your quirks and foibles, and smile at those of your partner, then life is much better. Humor includes the concept of tolerance, acceptance and even wisdom, at least to me.
A smile can go a very long ways in smoothing the rough patches inevitable in any relationship.


If you've got this.... it means all the other bases have been covered .
But it always amazes me how little of it there is around and how full of themselves a lot of folks are, some really don't live and learn .

I have no idea. You would think that honest , faithfulness, fun , the ability to not want to change someone would all be virtues ladies of 60 would be looking for . I see many who list the above and more. Are ladies in there late 50's and up resigned to living alone? Steve

where's passion? hadn't thought of that the last time i posted here. passion for living life, others, good deeds, achieving one's goals with a zest--or as an energy to recoup or ride out of the downslope of a wave. then, of course, there is the more personal kind of passion. it is all a form of energy. i think all energy of this sort would be positive. i wonder what the opposite of passion would conjure up. i doubt it would have any virtue in it. as to applying to our age group, it would be the ablity to "sustain" passion and not give up.

Should have all, live a healthy and happy life, and don't get retarded! There are some retarded people who are over 60 but tell they are young like 40s...

...Smiling through my arthiritist,cholesterol,high blood pressure

You know what food is good for you. I read some study from my native language, eating onions may be good for lowering one's high cholesterol.
