Be wise with speed;
  A fool at forty is a fool indeed.
      - Edward Young, Love of Fame
         (satire II, l. 281)

At thirty, man suspects himself a fool,
  Knows it at forty, and reforms his plan;
    At fifty, chides his infamous delay,
      Pushes his prudent purpose to resolve,
        In all the magnanimity of thought;
          Resolves, and re-resolves, then dies the same.
            And why? because he thinks himself immortal,
              All men think all men mortal but themselves.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night I, l. 417)

To climb life's worn, heavy wheel
  Which draws up nothing new.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts (night III)

Men may live fools, but fools they cannot die.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night IV, last line)

We bleed, we tremble; we forget, we smile--
  The mind turns fool, before the cheek is dry.
      - Edward Young, Night Thoughts
         (night V, l. 511)
