“I wish back then I knew what I know now. Things would be different.”
Something said by people in their twilight years and some in their prime, it sounds so wise, doesn’t it.
Each time time it is said as nothing more than anecdote.
The fact that they do know what they do now but still make the same decisions as they did back then is amusing, in a sad and ironic way.
Are you one of those wise fools?
