Quote #7

Age comes upon him,          his face grows pale,
the graybeard laments;          he knows that his old friends,
the sons of princes,          have been given to the earth.
(91-93)

You know what's worse than the physical pain you go through as you age? The fact that you have to watch your friends die. No matter how much gold you heap on a person's grave, he's gone forever, beyond your reach.
