Caliph Makmun asked an aged retiree: "How's life as an aged person?"
Retiree: "Even a pebble can make me fall. Even a strand of hair can tie me. I fall asleep in many meetings, but lay wide awake in bed. Food bores me."
Caliph: "Then, what about women?"
Retiree: "Young, beautiful women, they don't like me.."
MB Pahang's quotations on getting old:
Young and healthy - a normal thing
Young and sick - abnormal
Old and sick - normal
Old and healthy - abnormal
We retirees are required to be old and healthy..ha ha
