It's Everyman for himself in this tale for adults. Yes, that's what I said. It's a story for oldsters who could use a rueful laugh. I want to say it's a fantasy, but I'd be lyin', lol, about this satire on aging.

Friedrich Nietzsche
“It is good to express a matter in two ways simultaneously so as to give it both a right foot and a left. Truth can stand on one leg, to be sure; but with two it can walk and get about.”
Friedrich Nietzsche

Elbert Hubbard
“To avoid criticism, do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.”
Elbert Hubbard

Ayn Rand
“But you see," said Roark quietly, "I have, let’s say, sixty years to live. Most of that time will be spent working. I’ve chosen the work I want to do. If I find no joy in it, then I’m only condemning myself to sixty years of torture. And I can find the joy only if I do my work in the best way possible to me. But the best is a matter of standards—and I set my own standards. I inherit nothing. I stand at the end of no tradition. I may, perhaps, stand at the beginning of one.”
Ayn Rand, The Fountainhead

Edna St. Vincent Millay
“A person who publishes a book willfully appears before the populace with his pants down. If it is a good book nothing can hurt him. If it is a bad book nothing can help him.”
Edna St. Vincent Millay

“If most of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”
