The general trace of life:

zero-teens = you learn about the world.
early-teens = you intend to change the world when you grow up.
late-teens = you realise you can't change the world, ever.
early-twenties = you intend to direct your own life as you want it.
early-thirties = you realise you dont control your life, rather it controls you.
late-thirties = you vow to direct the life of your children.
early-fifties = you realise you can't control your children's life at all.
sixties and later = you give up all hope and continue living.

ofcourse, I am just guessing, but I feel its true :D.

since I have been privy to your wisdom, I'll start living my life as I want (after all I am in the early 20s) :P

I agree to the first four statements... Do not know about others, will come back in 40 years and then proceed to analyze your statements properly :D
