Although I laughed when I read it, I realized the deeper truth
of the statement.  There comes a point in life and maturity when
you make choices not based on the frivolous things but on the
things that really matter.

The older you get, the better you can see which is which.
At least that is the way it is supposed to work.

The world gives us toys, things that look exciting but are not
the main point.  The less mature you are, the more you get
things for the toy appeal, and the less you get them for the
higher purpose.

"The only difference between men and boys is the price of their
toys."  That is a rather well known saying.  Maybe the real
difference between men and boys is that real men need less toys.

It is not really a function of age.  I've seen old men still
fascinated and focused on toys while neglecting the important
things of life and family.

Choosing a woman based on curves not character or choosing a man
based on cash not character; toys.

17, 27, 47 or 87, age doesn't really matter, only maturity.

Three dictionary definitions of fiber are:
1. Something that provides substance or texture.
2. Essential character or structure.
3. Basic strength or toughness; fortitude.

Three dictionary definitions of toy are:
1. An object for children to play with.
2. Something of little importance; a trifle.
3. A bauble

Fiber or Toys?

Good question.

"When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a
child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man,
I put away childish things."
1 Cor 13:11 KJV

Take the most difficult challenge you are now facing and turn it into the greatest opportunity to grow simply by changing how you see it. Dead ends then become turning points."

Again, off topic.
