I am Vito Corleone

At the end of The Godfather, an aged and somewhat frail Vito Corleone is counseling his son, Michael–the “good son” who has now become his heir in the “family business.”

VITO
I like to drink wine more than I used to…anyway, I’m drinking more…

MICHAEL
It’s good for you, Pop.

VITO CORLEONE
I don’t know…your wife and children–Are you happy with them?

The older I get, this is exactly how I feel, though instead of wine you can substitute John Prine, Chavela Vargas, and Tom Waits.
