Those Special Years

Even if we live to be a hundred, the first twenty five years are the longest half of our lives. They appear so while they are passing; they seem to have been so as we look back on them; and they take up more room in our memories than all the years that succeed them.

  • paraphrased from a quote by Robert Southey, English Romantic Poet


With music like this, no wonder ‘our’ best years were so memorable:

So basically it seems we have ten years of knowing nothing, then fifteen magic years of knowing everything (feature pic), doing everything and having the most fun and then about fifty years of thinking WTF happened!? – and some regretting we didn’t get up to even more stuff in the magic fifteen.

      Yeah! Nowadays if we drink seven beers, drive at 100mph and pomp a chick we can hardly remember it, the hard disk is so crowded!
