According to Thoreau in "Economy," what valuable advice on living can the old offer to the young?
The old can offer the young the lesson that they can “only hit what they aim at.”
The old know how to “live a life of simplicity, independence, magnanimity, and trusts." The young can learn this from the old.
The old are “determined to live by faith” and can teach the young to do the same.
The old can advise the young on how to avoid living "lives of quiet desperation."
The old cannot offer the young valuable advice on how to live.
