Today, the wisdom of times gone by is largely ignored and in many cases not even in the day to day reality of most people. There are cycles in life that appear to be more or less about 80 years. We echo many of these times again and again throughout history.
It’s easy to see why these nuggets of wisdom are lost. 80 years is beyond the life of many people, and while many do live that long, often they begin to fade mentally, forgetting the lessons learned, and not being able to share them with the young people, who while perhaps not choosing to care in the moment, will hopefully recall them later in life when maturity and with it wisdom begin to take hold.
