Lessons Too Late for the Learning

The ‘lesson too late for the learning’ is the hardest one. And it’s not alone; it runs in herds that, if one lets them, will consume a person until all he sees are his mistakes, the ones that cannot be unmade. But if he gives himself forgiveness for that unforgivable error, while acknowledging its gravitas and correcting its genesis, the lesson can change his life for the better. Or so I’m told. Adages and proverbs and axioms and maxims and their kin offer their own lessons, though some of them are epithets for wishful thinking.
