The older I grow, the more I distrust the familiar doctrine that age brings wisdom.
나이가 들수록, 연륜이 지혜가 된다는 말을 더 못 믿게 된다.- 헨리 L. 멘켄
年を重ねるにつれ、年を取れば知恵がつくという、よく聞く教えを信じられなくなっている。- ヘンリー・Ｌ・メンケンH.L. Mencken humor wisdom age
Henry Louis "H. L." Mencken (September 12, 1880 – January 29, 1956), was an American journalist, essayist, magazine editor, satirist, critic of American life and culture, and a scholar of American English. Known as the "Sage of Baltimore", he is regarded as one of the most influential American writers and prose stylists of the first half of the twentieth century. Many of his books remain in print.
