Life in the fast lane

Much of Arthur Schopenhauer's writing is focus...

Arthur Schopenhauer

“Just remember, once you’re over the hill you begin to pick up speed.”

~ Schopenhauer

Getting old isn’t so bad as long as you look on the bright side of aging – just like Schopenhauer did when he wrote the brilliant statement above. There are definitely advantages to growing old that help people understand life in a more lovely way. When one has matured enough, they can see life as those who are younger cannot because they can see over the “fence” that blinds those who aren’t experienced or mature enough to see over it. Even if someone is able to peer over the “fence” that wiser, aged people can see over, it doesn’t mean that they will comprehend what they see. So, for all you young people reading this, find yourself a mature, wise mentor who can steer you in the right direction as you travel along life’s long, perplexing and troublesome journey. Be sure and bring your crash helmet because people “over the hill” travel faster than you do. Just keep on truckin’ at full speed.

    Great stuff. I would never have known who Arthur S was but for you. How obscure!

    • Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog today. I hope to see you back here more often. I’m sure you will discover a lot more interesting and obscure people within my posts.

  2. Never heard of that Schopenhauer quote: Just remember, once you’re over the hill you begin to pick up speed.” Sounds more like Woody Allen except it’s optimistic. Will keep that in mind!
