QOTD 180 of 365

Death is not evil, for it frees man from all ills and takes away his desires along with desire's rewards. Old age is the supreme evil, for it deprives man of all pleasures while allowing his appetites to remain, and it brings with it every possible sorrow. Yet men fear death and desire old age.


Giacomo Leopardi

again another great quote and so true. I can definitely see this old age depriving man of pleasures while allowing appetites to remain in my in-laws who are in their 80s, frail health, money available to go and do things but health prevents them from doing so. I used to think I would like to live to be a old age, but not sure about that these days. Of course having faith in Jesus I will live forever with him :)
