"It is said there are three happy states of the collector: discovery, possession, and dispersal, each of which, during its period of sway, is supreme: to thirst after, to enjoy, to share; until the burning desire, in the perfected state, is clear of attachment either to the thing itself or to its contemplation--devotion, over time, having been blessed with a repletion of gratitude, sufficient unto itself."
--David Mamet, from the chapter Belonging in The Wicked Son

Now that I'm 52 I realize It takes a very long time to become young.

Or as Bob Dylan put it: I was so much older then/I'm younger than that now.
