Time is always the enemy
TIME IS ALWAYS THE ENEMY
I have frequently used this expression and in many ways it is correct. It is time that causes the rose to wither on the vine or a man to wrinkle and dry up like a prune. We all know that we cannot slow or stop this ever present force. We have learned how to defy gravity but to resist the passage of time remains a complete mystery.
Perhaps time is not the enemy when it brings wisdom & experience. If only we can accept those traits as a trade off for the inevitable slow decline of our vitality.
"I do not wish to obtain immortality by doing something astonishing or important. I wish to obtain immortality by not dying." Groucho Marx
