Isn’t that surprising?

I was thinking this morning about a couple of old sayings:

“If I knew I was going to live so long, I would have taken better care of myself.”

and

“The young think that they will never die.”

If people think that that they will never die, then why are they so surprised when
they haven’t?

    Old sayings are circumstantially true.
