There was another silence, while Marjorie considered whether or not convincing her mother was worth the trouble. People over forty can seldom be permanently convinced of anything. At eighteen our convictions are hills from which we look; at forty-five they are caves in which we hide.
-F. Scott Fitzgerald, Bernice Bobs Her Hair (first appeared in Flappers and Philosophers. New York: Scribners, 1922)
