Time Spent With the Harvard Classics – On Old Age – Cicero

“The works of Nature must all be accounted good.”

In approximately 44 BC, Cicero was starting to get a little older and thinking on things like older guys often do only more eloquently put.  From this resulted the essay, On Old Age.  In this, quite naturally he wrote of aging and the death from which none of us escape.  He did so in clear and beautiful language that has spoken to many hearts down through the ages.
