Some light Friday reading – an enRoute interview with William Shatner about ageing:
ER: What’s the best thing about getting older?
WS: I don’t know that there is one!
ER: Do you get smarter?
WS: Not really. You think you do. You think something you’ve done before has some relationship to something that’s coming up, but it isn’t necessarily so. Each experience is unique. At least, you should treat it that way.
ER: What’s the one thing you know now that you wish you had known 30 or 40 years ago?
WS: That nobody knows anything. Everybody has an opinion but it’s not necessarily any more valid. The only problem is, you have to live that before you learn it. Every generation rediscovers the truths, but by the time you rediscover them it’s too late.
