Change of perspective.

The man who views the world at fifty the same as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life.
-- Muhammad Ali

At 33, my view of the world has changed so many times that it is hard to recall all of the different opinions I have had.  And I find that somewhat entertaining because I distinctly recall being in high school and getting into (senseless) arguments with my parents, all the while thinking, "I am certain in my views; I am certain in my positions; my parents are simply wrong."  Truer words were never... er, wait a second....

And now, living near a college campus proves that the cliche is actually an unyielding universal truth: youth is wasted on the young.
