"Let me tell you something, son. You are not the first person in the world who hasn't had things go his way."
Eric was already uncomfortable. "I know that."
"You do?" He said, sounding somewhat surprised. "Well think about this. Think about how long you've been alive. You're going to have to live that many years again just to get where I am right now. Then, you'll probably live at least that many again before you finally check out. You have to live your whole life two more times."
"So you so you might want to start living like your whole lives ahead of you. Not behind."
