This is a question Advice from Old People

Sometimes, just sometimes, old people say something worth listening to. Ok, so it's like picking the needle out of a whole haystack of mis-remembered war stories, but those gems should be celebrated.

Tell us something worthwhile an old-type person has told you.

Note, we're leaving the definition of old up to you, you smooth-skinned youngsters.

My old headteacher
when he left gave us a speech. In it he said: "You will be told that your schooldays are the best days of your life. With all due respect, I sincerely hope that they are not. I hope that your best days are always ahead of you."

I was only 16 at the time and didn't really get it then, but since I've realised, isn't that the best thing you could ever wish for anyone?

That left me with
a lovely warm feeling inside.

If only all headmasters were like that.

Although if your best days were ahead of you for your whole life,
that'd mean that your entire life was worse than being dead.
