Is there any word to describe past glory? Mostly elders use this to grumble and complain about the present. Example:
"In those days, I used to run 4 miles daily. Now walking a quarter mile is a task."
"In our days people helped and took care of neighbors and relatives without much ado. Nowadays even taking care of your own parents has become a great sacrifice. Where the world is going!"
Maybe the splendor of the past is exaggerated. But the point is the past was wonderful, when the present is harsh. In such a situation, what is the word for the past splendor?
