Quote of the Day – August 14th

“But as to this retirement business, let me give a word of advice to all of you young people around fifty. Some of you have been talking of it and even looking forward to it. Have nothing to do with it. Listen; it’s like this. Have you ever been out for a late autumn walk in the closing part of the afternoon, and suddenly looked up to realize that the leaves have practically all gone? You hadn’t realized it. And you notice that the sun has set already, the day gone before you knew it – and with that a cold wind blows across the landscape. That’s retirement.” 

Stephen Leacock, 1939
