Day 140: Mark Twain on Fatherhood

When I was a boy of 14, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be 21, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years. – Mark Twain 1874

Mark Twain was right on the money. Every year that you grow, your father’s advice starts making more sense. It can be hard to remember that he used be your age too, and probably struggled with some of the same sorts of things.
