Some things age well, get softer and gentler, bring a certain peaceful joy to the eye when looked upon. Some people age well too, while others don't. I think it's how you start. If your essence, what you feel inside, is wholesome and positive, you age well, your appearance gets softer, gentler. If you let life's unhappinesses control you, then you age badly, that is, you show the disappointment and bitterness in your appearance.
