When asked how come his marriage survived the test of time....Paul Newman replied, "This is a throw-away society. We throw away children, friends, marriage, enough trash to sink the planet and anything else we don't want. How sad is that truth?
He then went on to say that in his generation they seldom threw things away but 'things' everything, was repaired and that was why his marriage was such a success, they fixed the problems when they occured.
We all want to advance in life, but so much can be learned from the elderly. Let us not delete them as quickly as we do everything else.
