Wise and witty words about balding.

I don't have as much hair as I used to, and I understand this is not uncommon! It seems like the sort of thing Updike would have written about, or some other self-reflective male writer of a certain age, and I'd like to be able to read (and ideally quote) something well-written or epigrammatic for when the subject comes up.

How do I know if my hairline is receding?

My dad's dad had hair till he died in his 80s. My mom's dad was bald as a cue-ball by his 40s. Are there ways to know if your hairline is starting to recede before it's obvious?

How do I slow down going bald? What does "male pattern baldness" mean?

My hair is thinning. This really sucks. I knew it would happen (uncle on mom's side has it) but what can I do to slow it down? Rogaine is out of the question as it is bad for my wife if she gets near it when trying to have kids. I have been using this "hair thickening" shampoo which doesn't seem to be doing much. Also why is it called male pattern baldness? Where's the pattern?
