The wise always make new mistakes, but the prudent stick with the devils they know, because there's just no telling what you can find yourself walking into. Some things in life you're never the same again after having done, and you'd take back their toll of reducing you to a helpless drooling idiot if only the blow hadn't also made you see stars. These things can't be unlearned. Knowledge may be power, but the first lesson learned is that ignorance is bliss.
