The truth is that we are all born into this world quite ignorant, personally I like to think of my behavior in my youth as a "learning experience." I have a great many regrets, and I'm sure most everyone does. However as a Headmaster I now feel that I must protect the memory of those stupid things, so I can teach the value of them to my students. However if they don't want my advice they can always go get a "learning experience" for themselves!
