Another quote by Doris Lessing:

 

 

If you are not familiar with Doris Lessing:

 

Doris May Lessing CH (née Tayler; 22 October 1919 – 17 November 2013) was a British novelist, poet, playwright,librettist, biographer and short story writer. Her novels includeThe Grass is Singing (1950), the sequence of five novels collectively called Children of Violence (1952–69), The Golden Notebook (1962), The Good Terrorist (1985), and five novels collectively known as Canopus in Argos: Archives (1979–1983).

 

 

The Golden Notebook is on my to read list.

Temmu

that is a horrible thing to say (the steve jobs quote, a few posts above.)

'clears out the old to make way for the new.' horse crap.

 

if the new paid attention to the wisdom of the old, instead of clearing them out for their own selfish motives, our nation would be far better.

 

ps

to rebut those who will comment,

that quote speaks of death of old people.

Life is a terminal disease Temmu ... But it is good to learn from the old as well as progress.

 

Some things are so much better learned from those who have experienced life longer. Wisdom is often like that.

 

I don't think Steve was speaking of Wisdom but advances of a Technology ... Some of the very old refuse to even use a computer or eBook reader, or other newer technology as is their prerogative, but the world will not progress technologically that way.

 

Even so, there is much wisdom to be learned from old people ... Old certainly does not mean useless...

...What country ever existed a century and a half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve it's liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is it's natural manure....

The problem with quotes about death is that they were all written by people who had never experienced it.
