“Time passes, the world has entered the third millennium! There are many changes, kingdoms rise and fall; there are wars and rumours of wars. Life moves at a terrifying speed, by air and by earth. Science has removed the most hidden secrets of nature. And mankind is here, rustling with endless problems, suffering, but also creating new forms of beauty.
Still, the past can teach us many things. Truth is hidden in ancient manuscripts. And truth is hidden in each of our personal lives. My belief in the values of past experience may have inspired me to write these fragments of a long life, not too detached (or perhaps occasionally lacking in detail!). In fact, a glance at the past!”.
