YOUNG BULLS, OLD BULLS, AND AIRFRAME ICE
It is characteristic of a young bull to charge directly at any sort of challenge or opportunity. The old bull, having survived his youth, is inclined to take a few more chomps of grass before committing himself to a specific course of action. Permit me to fancy that the old bull takes a moment to philosophise upon the situation, to take the time to observe a bit more and to ask WHY more frequently. ...

Also, a bit of humor to set the point:
An old bull and a young bull were on top of a hill looking down at the huge herd of cows grazing in the fields below. The young bull said, "I'm gonna charge down this hill, jump over that hedge and visit each of those cows!"

The old bull chewed some grass and said "Go ahead". He chewed some more grass and said, "I'm going to walk down the hill, go around the hedge and still visit them all."
