Faded Wisdom

October 7, 2021 pwm1

When ancient opinions and rules of life are taken away, the loss cannot possibly be estimated. From that moment we have no compass to govern us. Nor can we know distinctly to what port to steer.

There is nothing contemporary about the rules we should use to govern our lives. Some of the greatest wisdom ever imparted on the world was recorded thousands of years ago, yet so many act as though history goes back only as far as their own lives. By studying the wisdom and maxims of the past, we develop a new perspective on our present, and begin to see new paths forward into our future.

—Mike Hazell
