What a Great Day

This Century

Filed under: great — f3lheadhunter @ 11:57 am

2 recommended books:

– how to live 24 hours a day
– get it right

The first one talks about time management, and how people waste their most valuable possession,
it was written in 1910, the second one is a bunch of hints on how to write correctly, written around 1930.

As an active and evolving language, the English has changed since 1930, however, those advices seem mostly
still valid as of today (2006).
Soon, it will be 100 years since the writing of the first book, but what’s written there is just as valid as
when it was thought of, which makes me wonder, if what I write will still be valid in 100 years?
Will the URLs still work (will there be an internet at all?), will my pondering, thoughts, and remarks will be seen
as silly, and ridiculous, or as timeless and valid.
What will my readers think of my writings in 2106?, will I be read in 2106?, but perhaps the bigger issue is:
does it matter?.
Once you are dead, and your body turns into ashes, does fame matter?
despite what s/everyone says/most people say/ , it was a great century.
