Growing old with Confusius

My wife has always joked that I have always had an old soul. That was her way of saying that I always have wanted to grow into a distinguished Gentleman. That is my way of saying I act older than what I am.

I found this quote and now I know why. 

At fifteen, I aspired to learning.
At thirty, I established my stand.
At forty, I had no delusions.
At fifty, I knew my destiny.
At sixty, I knew truth in all I heard.
At seventy, I could follow the wishes of my heart without doing wrong.
