Thoreau once wrote; As a man grows older his ability to sit still and follow indoor occupations increases. He grows vespertinal in his habits, as the evening of life approaches, till at last he comes forth only just before sundown, and gets all the walk that he requires in half an hour.
We usually listen to what Thoreau has to say but when it comes to the march of time, we'd much rather follow the advise of Dylan Thomas when he exclaimed;
"Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light."
