It is best to sort carefully between the treasures and the trash.
See everything with new eyes.

upon the roots of the old trunks that have crumbled away.

to believe nothing, than to believe what is wrong.
- Thomas Jefferson

and find that you can.
Old deeds for old people, and new deeds for new.
- Henry David Thoreau

Its not that we need new ideas,
but we need to stop having old ideas.

"Old times" never come back and I suppose it's just as well.

and that's better.

courage in escaping from old ideas and old standards.
