There can be great virtue in old things.
Old books, old music, and even old food.
Think about it.
Might there be a few good reasons that some books are still in print hundreds of years after they were published?
That some music is still selling 50 years after it came out?
Or that some French wineries have been operating since 1000 AD?
I can still see myself at age 9.

When I was a teenager, everything I liked was old. My favorite bands had released their first albums before I was born and were still going strong decades later when I came around (and thankfully, the ones that are still alive still are). I remember picking up The Great Gatsby in high school for the first time and being shocked that something intended to be so timely—about the Jazz Age—could, more than a half century later, still feel so timeless. Even the movies I found myself watching and rewatching weren’t in the theaters; they were on television—the so-called classic films.
