A Hunting Trip



A man's age is not to be measured by his long years,
But by how happily he lives his life.
The days of my glory and unlimited authority
Are the ones I consider truly lived by me.
O how unfair fate can be to its children,
How treacherous to those who put their trust in it

[Hata Bildir]
