it has come under my observation that people who are creatively inclined tend to live longer than their contemporaries. p g wodehouse, khushwant singh, m f hussain, s h raza et al have lived well into their nineties enjoying as good a health as any nonagenarian can afford.

the reason for their longevity is directly related to this quote by dr kalam.
dream is not that which you see while sleeping it is something that does not let you sleep.
their passion kept them on their toes. they looked forward to each day as an opportunity to accomplish something exciting.

if an individual wishes to live his life to the fullest, he must try to keep his creative juices flowing by discovering a hobby and nurturing it into his passion.

a quote from a famous bollywood flick sums it all up:
life need not be long, it must be large.
