When I graduated from college, I knew more than I ever had in my entire
life. I was *smart!* I knew more than those "dumb old guys."
As time passed, and I learned more and more, I also learned that I knew less
and less, and, hence, was becoming dumb. And as I listened to those "dumb
old guys," I learned that maybe they were not as dumb as I once thought.
Now, having lived for 68 years, I willingly admit that I am one of those
"dumb old guys" and am not ashamed of it.
For those of you in the dawn or forenoon of your careers, recognize that
*soon,* you, too, will be a "dumb old guy." Recognize the limits of their
knowledge. Be kind to them. Listen to them so that one of these days, you
will become as dumb as they.
