My dear,

I was once as foolhardy as you.

I taught myself on as many things as possible and I reached a point where I thought, no – I KNEW I knew everything and no-one could speak of things I did not know ten-fold more than them about. I thought I was the smartest youth in the west, the east – heck, probably in the whole universe. Yup, I thought I knew it all… And then life hit me.

I was ignorant, not wise. I was shunning my growth for the illusion of already being ‘on top’ (where is that by the way?).

He that is taught only by himself has a fool for a master.

That’s what life slapped me in the face with, that realization.

That’s when I got smart enough to know I wasn’t smart enough.

Falsely yours,
Hunter Stockton Thompson
