A society grows great

when old men plant trees

in whose shade they know they will never sit.

Greek Proverb

In these notes a grandfather sets out for his grandchildren some of the lessons he has learned from a long and rewarding life. These are lessons the young people may not be able to absorb just yet, but "Papa" will probably not be here when his grandchildren have experienced enough of life themselves to grasp fully the insights set out in these pages.

The advice he offers his grandchildren, as a stimulus to the development of their own wisdom later in their lives, covers topics as diverse as self-awareness and self-judgement, relationships between the sexes, how to deal with conflict and one's attitude toward the eternal.
