The Last Laugh

This was my last word to a PROTEGE after a SERIOUS EXCHANGE yesterday: “Most YOUNG PEOPLE do what is WRONG, thinking they are CAUSING PAIN for the ADULTS in their LIVES who give INSTRUCTIONS and MAINTAIN DISCIPLINE and ORDER. In the SHORT-RUN, they indeed CAUSE GREAT PAIN for those ADULTS. But in the LONG-RUN, they WILL REALIZE that they have ONLY SUCCEEDED in ABUSING their YOUTH and HURTING their FUTURE. BLAME will eventually go to the APPROPRIATE QUARTERS, EACH ONE will CARRY his or her OWN BURDEN, and the LAST LAUGH is to the ADULTS. May HE HEAR that has an EAR.

    A must read for the youths. Well said Sir.

  3. I DON’T FEEL THE ADULT WILL REALLY LAUGH. WHEN WE FAIL, WE STILL BARE THE BRUNT, BUT IT IS STILL THE DUTY OF THE WISER, THE OLDER TO SUCCESSFULLY GUIDE THE YOUTH, EMPATHIZE WITH THEM AND LEAD THEM ON THE RIGHT TRACK AFTER THEY REALIZE THEIR FOOLISHNESS.

      Ayoola, He who laughs last, last best is a proverb. It doesnt mean the last laugher is physically laughing. It only means the rejected opinion has been validated and the first laugher has understood his error. Whether he will have enough time and resource to make amends is relative. So, for this thought, the elders will not scorn the youth because time has proven them right…life will just acknowledge that wisdom has been validated, and foolishness has been defeated again. But the elders heart is not against the failing youth. Dont confuse it. It’s an age long wisdom.
