    An aged man is but a paltry thing,
    A tattered coat upon a stick,
    William Butler Yeats (1865–1939)

    A farm, a countryside, or if he can,
    It’s thus he does it of a winter night.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Just like those who are incurably ill, the aged know everything about their dying except exactly when.
    Philip Roth (b. 1933)
