Subject: RE: BS: Question About Aging and Regret(s)
My favourite quote about ageing
"I wish I was young enough to do all the enjoyable things I did when I was younger, and sensible enough not to do the stupid things again"

Or the thing the great séan nós singer, Joe Heaney told us late one Saturday in a scruffy cafe at Euston Station shortly before he died:
"These days it takes me all night to do what I used to do all night"
