Zeno's Paradox

"Venus, Cupid, Folly and Time" by Angelo Bronzino

Gerontocrats appreciate the practical value of Zeno's Paradox as they approach their last furlough. Life is a race against time which they'd rather not win. Better to be that tortoise enjoying the pleasures of infinitely dividing his opponents halfs in half. Everyone wishes good things never end. It's hard to get up the Tuesday after Labor Day Weekend and though life may not be a holiday most people are afraid of the nothingness that lies on the other side. But if you take the approach of the family stoic, you'll never get there. It comes back to the old saw which which applies to Zeno's paradox and eternity too. Slow and steady wins the race!
