Young men are seen with a future, old men with a history. No man wants to be known as a man with no future, no matter how old he is.
It is very important for old men to tell young men of their failures and victories. But, old men need challenges to stay young at heart. An old man with a valued history and a valued future – is a very powerful man.
Old men start to die when their history is not valued and they see no valued future. What is worse is a young man who just exists; who simply lives for the day.
