The dictionary definition of retrospection is "looking backward on things past." Since young men look forward only, it becomes the prerogative of old men to engage in retrospection. To them it is usually calling past events to remembrance. These events generally are of no interest to youth, yet we of ancient vintage persist in our assumed privilege of thinking of the past and forcing youth to listen to the story.
