Forty Years Old: "Maybe I wasn't a huge success, but my kids will be."
Sixty Years Old: "Maybe my kids weren't all that successful, but at least my best years are still ahead of me."
Seventy Years Old: "Maybe they weren't the best years, but nevertheless, I'm going to live happily in this house for the rest of my life."
