I had expected, as a young man, to grow into a wise old sage.


This hasn't happened. I know nothing. As the world accelerates I know even less than before. I'm 82 now, my grandson and granddaughters seem to know more than I do.


Life really is weird, how can it possibly be?????


It seems as if the universe didn't exist until I was born - odd.


Voltaire said, 'It would be no less surprising to be born twice than to be born once'!


Who knows!

Realizing that you know nothing is actually a sign of wisdom, so you did pretty well.
