When I was younger I criticized older persons.
Now I'm older I criticize everyone.
When I was young I thought I knew it all.
Now I'm older I know that I know so much and it's nothing at all.
In general . . . "the grass is always greener over the septic tank." Erma Bombeck
We criticize that which is at a distance, for lack of understanding.
When we understand that it is distant, we criticize the distance.
When we close the distance, we criticize that which we understand.
The more we know the more we know we don't know.
Youth allows blissful ignorance.
Age does not allow bliss but as knowledge is gained, the greater is the understanding of ignorance.
Youth is blind to the truth of the world.
Age can either sharpen awareness or blind completely.
Which path is chosen?
