I was sort of an amoral little jerk when I was young. I was arrogant about being smarter than other people, but unhappy that I wasn't able to spend all my time doing what I wanted. I spent a year in a juvenile home for a first offense after an evaluation by a psychologist went very badly.
I wasn't good At growing up. Never learned The natives'art of life.

I couldn't get the mood back; it was as if one of the kids had woken up just as Cindy and I were starting to make love. I hadn't changed my mind, and I still knew that I'd have to do it sometime. It's just that I knew I wasn't going to be able to do it in the next five minutes.nick hornby

It is pretty clear in the Bible story that the whale swallowing Jonah wasn't meant as a punishment from God, it was God saving him from drowning. So it was actually provision to give him a second chance. The whale itself was the start of Jonah's second chance.phil vischer
He always has an alibi, and one or two to spare: At whatever time the deed took place- Macavity wasn't there.
Anglican chaplains were remarkably out of touch with their troops.

I've watched the gold in your hair turn silver, And the sparkle in your eyes dim more each day. And the clutch of your hands getting weaker, All these things say it wasn't yesterday. So darlin', Happy Anniversary, You've made my life for me. Once again, thanks for the memory.Roy Rogers
I wasn't born in America, but I got here as fast as I could.
