Expectation of Life

"Right understanding of the nature and source of all real Life does prolong human life and vigor"

The belief that death is inevitable is all but universally held among human beings and so is the belief that the older a person becomes, the more likely he is to die. If a person retains life and vigor much after the age of seventy years, this is often considered a matter for surprised comment. These beliefs were accepted, and a semblance of Scriptural authority given to them, by the writer of the ninetieth Psalm, who wrote, "The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and we fly away."
