You can't fool me with your evil misleading questions! This is surely a trick question since the newest fad is dyeing hair gray, so there is no right answer. You can either dye and gray, or gray then die.(less)
John M. McIlveen Probably not to answer ambiguous questions from women I do not know. I will never do that. What? I just did? DAMMIT!

John Irving
“Your memory is a monster; you forget—it doesn't. It simply files things away. It keeps things for you, or hides things from you—and summons them to your recall with will of its own. You think you have a memory; but it has you!”
John Irving, A Prayer for Owen Meany

C.S. Lewis
“There is no safe investment. To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrung and possibly be broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket – safe, dark, motionless, airless – it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The alternative to tragedy, or at least to the risk of tragedy, is damnation. The only place outside Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from all the dangers and perturbations of love is Hell.”
C.S. Lewis, The Four Loves

Philip Roth
“other people's weakness can destroy you just as much as their strength can. Weak people are not harmless. Their weakness can be their strength.”
Philip Roth, Indignation
