How do you feel today?    I feel ...

At thirty, man suspects himself a fool;Knows it at forty, and reforms his plan;At fifty, chides his infamous delay,Pushes his prudent purpose to resolve;In all the magnanimity of thoughtResolves, and re-resolves; then dies the same. And why? Because he thinks himself immortal. All men think all men mortal but themselves.
