It was, apparently, George Bernard Shaw who said that youth is wasted on the young.
I think that's total rubbish.
My sincerest apologies, Mr. Shaw.
I don't know about you but, I needed that endless reservoir of energy and naïveté to make all the blessed mistakes that have brought me here.
I'm exhausted just thinking about it.
In fact, it's a combination of laziness and lack of patience that has made me much more economical and judicious about bad decision making.
That and a little bit of wisdom ; )
