The great secret that all old people share is that you really haven't changed in seventy or eighty years. Your body changes, but you don't change at all. And that, of course, causes great confusion.
Wise men argue causes; fools decide them.
So we gravitated to shows and issues and causes that made people care.
As far as having peace within myself, the one way I can do that is forgiving the people who have done wrong to me. It causes more stress to build up anger. Peace is more productive.
As a single withered tree, if set aflame, causes a whole forest to burn, so does a rascal son destroy a whole family.
