I Have Met You too Late

Bu dedemin 3. ölüm yıldönümü.
Benim de 30 olmadan önceki son yılım.

The account of Yeats’s first meeting with Joyce is a familiar story. Ellmann relates the circumstances of that encounter in a café in November 1902 as one in which kindness was rebuffed with egotism. Before parting company with Yeats, Joyce asked how old he was; when Yeats told the younger man his age (though fudging it by a year), Joyce replied: 
“I thought as much. I have met you too late.  You are too old”
"You are too old for me to help you”
