The Power Of Aging Shown In 9 Images

Time is fascinating. Via Jan Langer.

“…And indeed there will be time
To wonder, “Do I dare?” and, “Do I dare?”
Time to turn back and descend the stair,
With a bald spot in the middle of my hair—

(They will say: “How his hair is growing thin!”)
My morning coat, my collar mounting firmly to the chin,
My necktie rich and modest, but asserted by a simple pin—
(They will say: “But how his arms and legs are thin!”)

Do I dare
Disturb the universe?
In a minute there is time
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse…”

“I grow old … I grow old …
I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.”

Excerpts from “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock” —T. S. Eliot (1915)
