When I was a young man, an older man told me the following story:
A young bull and and old bull were standing at the top of a hill, looking down at a large herd of cows. The young bull looked to the old bull and said "Hey, let's run down there and fuck one of those cows!", to which the old bull responded, "No, let's walk down there and fuck them all."
This is a personification of what it's like to be older and wiser, and now that I'm getting older, I'm starting to relate more and more with the old bull. Except, that is, that I'm not into fucking cows.
