@Appleblossom, probably. Or in plainspeak, friends who've lived life with me.
@Determined, there's a few lines that always jump out at me- " 't is not to late to seek a newer world....to sail beyond the setting sun.... Tho' much is taken, much abides;... Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will, to find, to seek, to strive, and not to yeild."
My Yr. 7-8 English teacher introduced our class to this poem. I loved it then, still love the "never too late for another adventure" attitude of it.

English literature not my strong point but have always tried to look at what remains rather than what has been taken 😀.

I like how the older English seems more alive. Well it does to me anyway.

This reminds us of the Canterbury Tales, have you ever read that old English novel @Smc?

Darling actually took it back and asked are you serious? And they just shrugged and added a couple extra.
