To divide one's life by years is of course to tumble into a trap set by our own arithmetic. The calendar consents to carry on its dull wall-existence by the arbitrary timetables we have drawn up in consultation with those permanent commuters, Earth and Sun. But we, unlike trees, need grow no annual rings.

A bit about Clifton Fadiman ...

Clifton Fadiman (May 15, 1904- June 20, 1999) was a noted intellectual, author, radio and television personality and nephew of the renowned genius William James Sidis. Clifton Fadiman was never know as "Cliff". In fact he had a particular dislike for the shortened reference to an otherwise name of distinction. His family and close friends did refer to him as "Kip". This somewhat odd nickname was actually given to him by his mother, when Clifton suffered a prolonged bout of the Hiccups at the age of three.
