People always want to change what is. I sometimes dearly wish that I had
*NOT* had as much maturity and wisdom in my youth as I did. I never did
have that feeling of invulnerability that the young are supposed to have,
and I always carefully weighed the pros and cons of any proposed plan of
action. The result was that I never did any of the 'wild and crazy' things
that my friends all remember so fondly, and would never do again...
