Old is gold

People have a tendency to discard old things and old people. Perhaps they think old has outlived its utility and has become obsolete. So they run after new. They forget that old is gold for the obvious reasons that it has stood the test of time. Old has grace of its own. Look at an old man. Are you not reminded of the serenity of the winter landscape of the mountains? Taste old wine. Does it not taste better? We make new acquaintances every day, but it is a different thing to meet an old friend. New may appeal our eye, but old thrills our soul. We should learn to look at old with reverence.
