Weaponsman is fond of saying, "The Past is a different country."
Today I discovered, that my youth is a different person.
I've recently reread two books I've read before, but not since I was 18-20 or so. I know that the text has not been edited because they are literally the same books I read before.
With different perspective, they are not reading the same at all.
They are better.
I am glad I did not throw my books away like so many others I've seen.
