    "We will all laugh at gilded butterflies."

    "Sometimes I can feel my bones straining
    under the weight of all the lives I'm not living."
    Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

    and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.

    When you remember playing 36 holes of golf in one day and now you get tired after putt-putt.
    "Put not your trust not in princes, in the children of men,
    in whom there is no salvation."
    Psalm 146

    Timely, isn't it?

    When you have to measure something and it is exactly the size your experience estimated it at.

    A whole swathe of entertainment, all sorts of lengths, all sorts of stories, all with that 'Olly' twist.

    When they ask in hospital you fell off your skate board and youre how old ?
    We are the measure of all things. And the beauty of our creation, of our art is proportional to the beauty of ourselves of our souls. Jonas Mekas

    When teenagers and early twenties do not have any idea what it is like being old.
    If you talk to a cat they look at you as if you are way below their intelligence to even listen.
    However, when you talk to a dog they look at you with such admiration and really do seem to understand what you are saying.
    Even if it is a bit silly...
    ...they still think you are wonderful.

    when you start listening to the doctor
    The only one who can heal you is you.

    when you finally have enough courage to tell your doctor to listen to you!

    You are talking to a younger person about how heroes have changed over the years. To illustrate a point you mention Joe DiMaggio only to discover that the young person has never heard of him.
    I was fighting with temptation but I didn't want to win.
    A man like me don't like to see temptation caving in.
    Leonard Cohen
