Anyone who claims that the older ones have more difficult time here certainly does not realize to what extent our problems weigh down on us, but which thrust themselves upon us.
Continually until after a long time we think we’ve found a solution but the solution doesn’t seem able to resist the facts which reduce it nothing again.
That is the difficulty in these time: idols, dreams, and cherished hopes rise within us only to meet the horrible truth and be shattered.
