I'm exploring the maturity, the wisdom that just comes from having gone around the sun 50 times. My experience is, 'Oh, I'm never really going to get it right. I'm never going to get it done. But that's not the point here.' The point is the journey.
Memory is not wisdom; idiots can by rote repeat volumes. Yet what is wisdom without memory?
Martin Farquhar Tupper
