Four Score

At eighty, a man has experienced everything:  love, and its ending;  ambition, and its emptiness;  several foolish beliefs, and their rectification.  Fear of death is not very great;  affections and interest concern people who have died and events of the past.  In a cinema theatre when the show is continuous the spectator has the right to retain his seat as long as he wishes to do so, but actually, when the scenes he has already witnessed reappear on the screen, he leaves the theatre.  Life is a continuous show.  The same events take place every thirty years, and they become boring.  One after another the spectators take their departure.
