Don’t tell me how adventurous you were when young: It does not count

Now that you are a tad older, tell me how you resolve your few handicaps every time you have to step out of your comfort zone.

Youth will never get the patience to listen to how older people body lose its adaptability, flexibility and power of recuperation.

All you are saying on physical difficulties is totally irrelevant to youth: They are not that real and they cannot fathom this decrepit state you are complaining about.

Did I mention the frequent stops for pissing?

This need for farting uncontrollably?

That when you say ‘I have to go”, it means exactly what you said.

This difficulty of getting out of bed when it feels cold?

The lengthy breathing exercises to clear up your lungs

How you manage to overcome the numerous aches in your joints?

“At term, all that will remain of your existence is a story. Make sure the story is a good one” Afzel

We are all lions on banners. We act and move as the wind flaps the flag (Mesnevi)

A person of high values mingles with common people. Persons with low values shoot for pre-eminence. (Sahabi)

A bite of bread, a bottle of wine, a book of poems and you singing by my side under a green tree: This solitude is my kind of paradise. (Omar Khayyam)

In time of great distress, not a single one will be around to come to your rescue. (Senay)

O children of Adam. You are members of one body. When misfortune ache a single part, there is no rest for the other members.
