The wonderful thing about being young is you have the whole world in which to explore and learn.
The terrible thing about being young is you have the whole world in which to explore and learn.
Albert Einstein said, “The only source of knowledge is experience,” but kids know everything (just ask them) without experiencing anything.
The problem with that attitude is best expressed by Bob Packwood when he said, “Good judgment comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgment.”
And common wisdom adds a corollary that drives the point home, “Trouble brings experience, and experience brings wisdom.”
No matter how smart, even if as successful as Mark Zukerberg, kids would do well to remember the words of Gordon Segal, founder of Crate and Barrel, “No matter how successful you are, stay humble, stay nervous, and don’t believe your own press.”
Or, as Robert Burns put it more than 200 years ago, “O would some power the giftie gie us to see ourselves as others see us.”
Finally, Lily Tomlin provides a mantra for kids and adults to live by, “The road to success is always under construction”
Have a wonderful day!
