Definition of Old

  OLD   adjective
In that stage of usefulness which is not inconsistent with general inefficiency, as an old man.  Discredited by lapse of time and offensive to the popular taste, as an old book.
  'Old books?  The devil take them!' Goby said.
  'Fresh every day must be my books and bread.'
  Nature herself approves the Goby rule
  And gives us every moment a fresh fool.

Harley Shum
