    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)
