We are no longer the same, you wiser but not sadder, and I sadder but not
wiser, for wiser I could hardly become without grave personal inconvenience,
whereas sorrow is a thing you can keep adding to all your life long, is it not,
like a stamp or an egg collection, without feeling very much the worse for it,
is it not. --Samuel Beckett
