Living To Know Better

The one advantage the older have over the young is perspective. I have lived through the consequences of my actions and the actions of others.  That gives me an insight that the young rarely possess.  I have learned not to take too much stock in the words of men or, too much in my own.  I also had to give up my moral certainty and learn empathy.  Because life is not black and white, it's muddy and gray.  Someday you could always find yourself in the circumstances of the person you once condemned
