Are you satisfied with what you have accomplishmed in life?
I just realised, browsing through the Wiki, that when Mozart was my age, he had been dead for a couple of years…
Exploring the Wiki further I discover that life expectancy in ancient Rome was way below my present age (I’m just a few years short of 40) – meaning that, as an average, ALL Romans had accomplished EVERYTHING* they did before my age.
As late as early 20th century, life expectancy is probably below my present age – meaning that, in a way, everything almost anyone did I’m too late to do.
I know there are exceptions and that we live way longer these days but still…. come on!
Anyone else feel a real sense of accomplishment?
*aqueducts, building the Colosseum, conquering most of the know world, etc.
