"I'm getting older but I'm always being taught a lot (of things)" a quote by Solon the Athenian showing the philosopher's way of being always inquisitive and open minded, and implying that getting older doesn't make you wise enough; "αἰεὶ" is an epic form of always (the normal one being "ἀεί") hence the quote has also the short form "γηράσκω ἀεί διδασκόμενος" "I'm getting older while being taught all the time"
