Levi's

That's a very touching story.
How strange and funny that people will fail to realize that everyone including themselves will get old, and certainly what comes around goes around.

There is a famous anecdote about a Jewish sage named Hillel the Elder. A man once came and challenged him to stand on one leg and teach him the essence of the bible while keeping his balance. Hillel famously replied, "That which is hateful to you, do not unto another: This is the whole Torah. The rest is commentary."

Alexander Pope, who authored the top quote, is one of my favorite poets. He and Mark Twain are great examples of writers/thinkers who could cut through the bullshit with great efficiency.

A few more favorite quotes by Alexander Pope:
"I am his Highness' dog at Kew;
Pray, tell me sir, whose dog are you?"

"Sir, I admit your general rule,
That every poet is a fool.
But you yourself may prove to show it,
Every fool is not a poet."

"Know then thyself, presume not God to scan; The proper study of mankind is man. "

So many forget the elderly until they are one. Nursing homes are terribly depressing for this reason.
