from a research paper about aging artists

In what way do older artists differ from younger artists?

Experimentation at the cost of learning, for the sake of career advancement, is my criticism of younger artists.

another thought provoking quote: "One of his sentences read... Love between man and man is impossible because there must not be sexual intercourse and friendship between man and woman is impossible because there must be sexual intercourse."
