Lord Byron on the Middle-Aged Man

Of all the barbarous middle ages, that which is most barbarous is the middle age of man! It is -- I really scarce know what; but when we hover between fool and sage, and don't know justly what we would be at -- a period something like a printed page, black letter upon foolscap, while our hair grows grizzled, and we are not what we were.
--Lord Byron
