Fighting against 'still'

I have just come across a lovely quotation from the great economist and social commentator, JK Galbraith at the age of 87. He talks about the 'still syndrome', which is when older people are taunted with questions such as, 'are you still working?', or 'Are you still exercising then?' and many more examples that I am sure that you have heard. His response to these questions was, ' I see that you are still rather immature'. Right on!!
