“But if his father’s death had taught him anything, it was that there was no real wisdom with age, only forced compliance.”

Nova Jacobs, The Last Equation of Isaac Severy

Full excerpt:

Intelligence fades. Sex fades. The thrill fades. Where is all the wisdom that is supposed to compensate for the loss? But if his father’s death had taught him anything, it was that there was no real wisdom with age, only forced compliance.

This paragraph made me laugh out loud. It’s one of those universal “sad, but true” Truths.
