When Old Men Talk

The less they say, the more they know.
The softer they speak, the more they mean it.
The less they smile, the harder they laugh.
And the more you talk, the better they listen.

The longer they sit, the harder  to stand.
The faster they run, the sooner they tire.
The further they go, the stronger they get.
And the longer they live, the sooner  they'll die.
The longer the ride, the harder the saddle.
The older the horse, the better the fit.
The further the ride, the more important the shade.
And the deeper the water, the shorter the swim.
