"One who has done nothing can not criticize one who has done little"

Life? How precious? Life! How small is the tree, yet how big is the mighty tree.
Once someone said, “Live life to its fullest because there is nothing longer then life”.
No matter what you do
or what mistakes you make
you must continue on
since there is nothing you can do to change your past
only ways to make the current,
and therefore future,
situations better.

It has also been said that past experiences
affect our future.
So if one had a rough childhood,
they are most likely,
but not definitely,
going to have a rough adulthood.

Also, things such as environmental factors,
including family an location,
along with age since learning,
development, and mental state is different at different ages,
can all affect a person.

Life! How precious. Life! How small is the tree, yet how big is the mighty tree.
