Excerpt from The Four Noble Truths: The Bhikkhu Silacara

And the answer came: This is decrepitude and old age; and time, change, the years, have done this thing.

And shall time and change and the years do this to me also? Asked the Prince of himself, and had to reply Yes, rich as is your father, at any time one stronger than he may come and wrest him from his throne, and drive forth him and his into exile and poverty. Into the midst of your health and strength, disease like a leopard may pounce, ravening, and leave you even as this poor palsied wretch. And should you escape these ills, yet, little by little, the years as they pass irrecoverably will steal from you cunning of eye and of hand and of brain, and you too shall become old and, at the latter end of all, die.
