Now that you are twenty-one, you can begin to:

  • Produce more than you consume;
  • Accumulate mistakes that are 100% your own;
  • Take responsibility for the next four or five decades of human history;
  • Realize as you learn more and more that you know less and less;
  • Define God for yourself;
  • Furnish your home with any values you wish;
  • Compose the symphony of your life on themes contained in the opening Andante;
  • Wonder how you could be so old and have accomplished so little.
