We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

George Bernard Shaw

Long may we play!

Sort of true. Nothing stops the ageing process, but if you stay young in heart and mind, the process seems less noticeable.

No. It's one of those classical plays and books that I've never bothered with, but probably should. Is Pygmalion the one with Eliza Doolittle in it?

That's true. Just a slight deviation from the topic - as YOU do, frequently.

Did you know that GBS's first paid job was in critiquing music and literature?

A mere ramble along the way Watson, but always come back on topic ... eventually.

And yes - that was really his first job ... so I read.
