Quote by Max Muller
Of these years nought remains in memory but the sad feeling that we have advanced and only grown older.
This quote reflects a sense of disappointment and disillusionment in the passage of time. It suggests that as the years go by, there is a feeling of melancholy and lost opportunities. Despite the notion of progress and personal growth, the speaker expresses a sentiment that resonates with the idea that time can sometimes be cruel. The quote implies that the memories of these years are overshadowed by the realization that, in the grand scheme of things, time has simply passed by, leaving only a somber reminder of aging.
