Mutton Dressed as Lamb

Tertullian, De Cultu Feminarum (How Women Should Dress) 2.6.3:
The more old age strives to be concealed, the more it will be exposed.

senectus cum plus occultari studuerit, plus detegetur.
Tertullian's words apply equally to men, who can be every bit as vain about their appearance as women.
