Appealing Talk | Humility | Humor | Youth

Alcibiades was telling Pericles, forty years his senior, how best to govern Athens. This did not amuse Pericles. He said, “Alcibiades, when I was your age, I talked just as you do now.” Alcibiades replied, “How I should like to have known you, Pericles, when you were at your best.” Adapted from The Little Brown Book of Anecdotes, Clifton Fadiman, Editor, page 9.
