We are too busy living life when we are younger to see the philosophical arc running through it. We do not yet have the experience to make an analysis of our decisions and how they affect others we make down the road. Then one day we begin to see patterns and are better able to dissect our thoughts to realize where the discernment becomes impacted by habitual flaws and lapses in judgement but also by the strength of our character. We can begin to see a storyline forming like the script of a movie.

Youth is not wasted on the young but it would be nice to have more vision early on rather than rely quite so much on hindsight later.
