In his aging talk, Joshua Prager shares wisdom in literature for every year in life. The journalist and author recently wrote a book on the topic called '100 Years.'

The very poetic speech states "age more or less in step perceived from birth along the same great sequence" through every stage in life -- childhood, adolescence, adulthood and old age, from the confinements to emancipations. The speaker believes books display life's patterns as we do not just life patterns but also tend to record them. Narratives show humanity who they were, are and will be. Although these insights are relative because we live longer and therefore, age slower, there is still much wisdom to be found according to the aging talk.
