Old Age – – thoughts by Epicurus

From the ancient Greek, Epicurus, there is his delicious dictum:

“It is not the young man who should be considered fortunate but the old man who has lived well, because the young man in his prime wanders much by chance, vacillating in his beliefs, while the old man has docked in the harbor, having safeguarded his true happiness.”

REFLECTION

What thoughts does the quotation from Epicurus bring to our mind?

About you?    About how you live?    About how you spend your time?

About your past hopes & dreams?    About your plans for the future?

About the beauty you have experienced,

                         and the beauty you want to experience – in your life?

About your search for true happiness?

What are you doing to make all of that happen?
