I was driving the other day to pick up Potbelly with two dear friends, when the conversation somehow dropped into the realm of the philosophical. One of them, Ian, said as a passing comment in a response to a story, “youth is always wasted on the young.”
There are two key factors when it comes to living life. There is energy for action, and wisdom to choose which action to take. It seems that the energy fades as the wisdom grows, making the wisdom negligible.
Youth is wasted on the youth, and adulthood is wasted on adults.
