Age and Wisdom

I'm reminded of the brief exchange between Lear and the Fool;

Fool: If thou wert my fool, nuncle, I'ld have thee beaten

for being old before thy time.

KING LEAR: How's that?

Fool: Thou shouldst not have been old till thou hadst

been wise.

Alas, my trouble is that I am wise before I am old. :))
