I had to laugh at this great quote from Victorian writer Judith Stern, when I saw it in my week-to-view diary:

‘Experience is a comb that life gives you after you lose your hair.’

When the hair starts thinning and the reading glasses appear, then you finally ‘get’ what life is all about.  The understanding of human nature and the insight you have gained over many decades has helped you to realise why you were put upon this earth.  However, can you pass your wisdom onto the next generation?  No you cannot, because they are not listening.

You have your comb at the ready, but you can’t use it!  Arrgh!!!!!
