Be Slow In Giving Up The Old
I often wonder how people can so easily reject that which is called old; old truths, old principles, old concepts even old slogans. Nothing is bad because it is old, and nothing is good because it is new.
Whatever has been so relevant as to outlast the ages deserves more than a hasty rejection. Look at the rubbish heaps of new ideas, painfully discarded and stacked higher and higher, before you remove the ancient landmarks. Think about it. Those markers don't stand without purpose.
Though we call ageless truths "OLD", actually they are younger than youth. That which defies time never age.
