I Do Not Believe that Spring Dislikes Old People

He, Zhu (1052 A.D.-1125 A.D.)

    I do not believe that Spring dislikes old people. How many Springs are left for an old man? I shall treasure Spring and indulge in pleasures as much as possible. The smiles of a beautiful woman and pleasant songs are to my liking. I provoke and tease women, and drink heavily despite people's disapproval. Only when you are drunk may you find truth 1.

1 People cannot be pretentious when they are drunk.
