People Share Interesting Things That Have Changed Over Time

Change can be a fascinating thing and these things that are worn down over time just show how time is ineluctable. As the popular quote goes – change is the only constant thing in this world. Indeed, nothing is permanent in this world and everything is subject to change, living and non-living things alike. People grow old, living things perish, and non-living things deteriorate over time. It’s the inevitable cycle of life.

Just as people can leave memories and their legacies behind after they’ve passed away, inanimate objects that are worn down by time can also leave their own interesting stories behind. As surviving reminders of the past, they are long-standing mementos that remind us of the invincible force of time. Despite the decrepitude, these things reveal the beauty of their perennial existence that has endured years of human usage, weather, friction, gravity, and the powerful forces of nature.
