Ways of the World

The old man told him not to run after perfection but find contentment in what he gets otherwise; and never regret anything because everything happens for a reason. But the youthful lad had yet to see the trials that led to conclusions; and the course of life showed the young man how true the sage was after all. Years after, the tombstone of the youth read, "Here lies the one who
didn't strive for perfection and never regretted anything and lived a peaceful life." Strange are the ways of the world.
