As a grandpa, I don’t have to work for salary and to go to school for higher degrees, but I have lots of things to do:
I keep on learning, because I am not all knowing.
I keep on translating and writing articles to share new thoughts.
I keep on teaching and encouraging younger people to teach children, preyouth and youth about skills for social service.
I plant flowers to beautify my house and embellish my desk.
If I still have means and time, I want to do some laundry, to vist relatives and friends and to rearrange my files,
I really regret for some people who falsely think that to have a college degree and/or to get a good paid job, is sufficient. They need not to learn more or to do anything else.
That sadness of unemployment or idleness is spoiling their life.

 Abdul-Baha says:

 I ask you not to think only of yourselves. Be kind to the strangers, whether come they from Turkey, Japan, Persia, Russia, China or any other country in the world.

Help to make them feel at home; find out where they are staying, ask if you may render them any service; try to make their lives a little happier.

In this way, even if, sometimes, what you at first suspected should be true, still go out of your way to be kind to them — this kindness will help them to become better.

After all, why should any foreign people be treated as strangers?

(Abdu’l-Baha, Paris Talks, p. 15)
