"Do you know the difference between education and experience? Education is when you read the fine print; experience is what you get when you don't. " ~Pete Seeger
I have spent many a tattered dollar learning the hard way. Sometimes it seems I could hold seminars on what not to do, with my life as an example. It could be called "Learning The Hard Way For Dummies", I guess if it were popular and filled the empty seats of the colosseum maybe I would become rich with a million dollars in the bank or maybe if I had listened to my Grandfather I would have a lot more dollars in my pocket now. There is no way to know for sure, but I am certain that empty pocketed or not, I am much wiser now than when I started.
The Stumbling Blocks of Man,
Our grandfathers built a foundation
upon the truths they came to know
so that we might know them to.
Yet we have cracked the masonry
and created stumbling blocks
that our grandchildren will have to move.
