Maturing would be easy if it didn’t cost anything, but the price is often painful! Makes me think of the student who asked his mentor, “How did you become so sucessful?”
The older answered, “Good choices.”
“How do you make good choices?” the younger questioned further.
“Experience!” said the older.
With a hint of impatience, the younger queried, “How do you get experience?”
“Bad Choices!” replied the older.
