Grim and Elderly Persons

Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics 8.6.1 (1158a; tr. J.A.K. Thomson):
The ability of grim and elderly persons to make friends is limited by the fact that they tend to be cross-grained and take small pleasure in society.

ἐνν δὲ τοῖς στρυφνοῖς καὶ πρεσβυτικοῖς ἧττον γίνεται ἡ φιλία, ὅσῳ δυσκολώτεροί εἰσι καὶ ἧττον ταῖς ὁμιλίαις χαίρουσιν.
