You are old, Grandpa Maher
a poem by Lewis Carroll, edited by Elessar

You are old, Grandpa Maher, the young man said,
And your hair has become very white;
And yet you incessantly stand on your head -
Do you think, at your age, it is right?

In my youth, Grandpa Maher replied to his grandson,
I feared it might injure the brain;
But, now that Im perfectly sure I have none,
Why, I do it again and again.

You are old, said the youth, as I mentioned before,
And have grown most uncommonly fat;
Yet you turned a back-somersault in at the door -
Pray, what is the reason of that?

In my youth, said the sage, as he shook his grey locks,
I kept all my limbs very supple
By the use of this ointment - one shilling the box -
Allow me to sell you a couple?

You are old, said the youth, and your jaws are too weak
For anything tougher than suet;
Yet you finished the goose, with the bones and the beak -
Pray how did you manage to do it?

In my youth, said his grandpa, I took to the law,
And argued each case with my wife;
And the muscular strength, which it gave to my jaw,
Has lasted the rest of my life.

You are old, said the youth, one would hardly suppose
That your eye was as steady as ever;
Yet you balanced an eel on the end of your nose -
What made you so awfully clever?

I have answered three questions, and that is enough,
Said his grandpa; dont give yourself airs!
Do you think I can listen all day to such stuff?
Be off, or Ill kick you down stairs!

I didn't find any kind of argument to "Human doesn't do anything if he/she doesn't gain anything from it? It can be either feeling based or material utility"
Can you elaborate on that a bit? I'm not quite sure I understand. It does sound a bit like psychological egoism, i.e. the thesis that everyone is ultimately motivated by self-interest (self-interest is desired as an end: I want to do x because it is in my self-interest and reason is only a tool for self-interest etc).

So let's say you do need empathy and emotional intelligence to be truly moral (and I certainly agree with that, although people who adhere to a certain other branch of moral philosophy would surely disagree) and thus having empathy and emotional intelligence is important and valuable. But how important are they in comparison to intellectual virtues like intelligence and the rest? If you want to be moral, is empathy more important than intelligence? Of equal importance? Or less important?

And the second question is: If the value of empathy is closely tied to the value of morality, that is empathy is only as good as it helps us treat other people well, then what exactly is the value of morality? Why is morality important?

That was quite a while ago. Have you discussed it with others or thought about it yourself?

One might now want to ask the question: Why is it greater and what do you base those value comparisons on? I mean, what is your standard for value judgements (how do you get to know the value of intelligence, empathy, wit and so on etc)?

Yeah, there's plenty of stuff I've forgotten as well, so some sparring sessions would do us both good. It's true that our Jedi-like, yellow purist style isn't as populair anymore these days, but that's okay. People can play how they want. In a sense, it's an advantage for us, as they'll be facing a style they're unfamiliar with. :)

Hey Maher, it was nice seeing you around on the JA server again. I didn't have much time last night as I had to go off to bed, but should you want some more yellow duels, I'm all for those. :D

Just finished watching 'Game of Thrones - season 1'. Absolutely epic :D. It's refreshing to see a writer (and the series producers/writers) with the balls to kill of characters. I'm looking forward to the next season!

Truth be told, I only posted a comment here because our own forums aren't that awesome anymore. Plus, I remembered I adapted a poem for you. Hence, you deserve a *poke* on your TJA.net profile ;).
