GROWING OLD IS HORIZONTAL - GROWING UP IS VERTICAL - OSHO
Growing old is not grow- ing up. Growing up means exactly what it says – growing up, growing upwards. Growing old is horizontal, growing up is vertical. Growing up means growing up like a tree. Growing old is like a river – it remains horizontal, it does not change its level, it doesn’t change its plane. If somebody else is growing up, rejoice, celebrate. At least one human being has become a Buddha. Good – he has shown the path. In fact, in him all human being have become Buddha in essence, because whatsoever can happen to every other human being.
