Marginalia, no.163

There we grow early gray, but never wise;
There form connections, but acquire no friend;
Solicit pleasure, hopeless of success;
Waste youth in occupations only fit
For second childhood, and devote old age
To sports which only childhood could excuse.

~ William Cowper, The Task

Riddle me this: Ring of Folly or Facebook?
