"You see, lad, when I was a boy I thought everything my mother said and my father did was old-fashioned and a bit ignorant. But when I was a man, I saw that, if I had started right from where they set me down, I would have been further ahead. To honor your father and mother don't mean to stick by their chimney corner all your life, but to start from their front door and go forward. I went out by the back door, like the fool I was; to get at the front road, I had a long round to make before I could even get started."
