The writer relates that the arrogance of age is one example in his life where he had made a 'blind' choice because he assumed an elder superiority over rational judgment. Much like King Lear, this writer had chosen the wrong persons to inherit a valuable asset, which invariably ended in a tragic and destructive way; King Lear had lost his ability to rule, just as he had lost his old car to an irresponsible cousin. The writer emphasizes that in this manner, he was blind because of his arrogance in assuming that those that respect his status as an elder would be more responsible.
