Old Times



 
In the novel ‘The Magnificent Ambersons, Boothe Tarkington writes in one chapter; ’"Old times?" Morgan laughed gaily from the doorway. "Not a bit! There aren't any old times. When times are gone they're not old, they're dead! There aren't any times but new times!" Old times can be fun to remember but if you live in the past, you will be passed by. Nothing is the same anymore and nothing was how you remember it now. Nothing was as great as you think it was. The painful memories lessen with the passage of time. The moon crosses the sky, seasons change.
