Mistakes @ 23

I love quotes and I particularly mine those coming from young adults. Here’s one:

“F**king up at 50 is different from f**king up at 23 but it might just be helpful.”—Coco Quizon, 23

Time is on their side, from each generation, time’s not wasted on youth. They’re given enough chances and leeway and extra strand to hold on to. Failing forward, and making mistakes (and learning from them) are a hallmark of a responsible living and to making it a success.

But time, too, passes. When you’re past 50 your mantra begins to be: Time be my friend. This is especially true when you’re full of regrets and can’t seem to break free from the same mistakes over and over and over.

There, too, is an expiration date to making mistakes; it can be very unforgivable when done repeatedly, unconsciously, over time, over decades.

We all make mistakes, but some people seem to have gone in for mass production on an industrial scale.

i could use 'em to produce another sets of volume of "a series of unfortunate events"; that could make me insanely rich!!

I suppose you could, unless that would be yet another mistake!
