Television icon Andy Griffith, best known as Sheriff Andy Taylor on The Andy Griffith Show and country lawyer Ben Matlock on Matlock, died early this morning. He was 86.

Here are Griffith's reflections on aging:

You know when you're young you think you will always be. As you become more fragile, you reflect and you realize how much comfort can come from the past. Hymns can carry you into the future.
