The secret of life, he said, can never be passed down one generation to the other.

I think this line of “Secret of Life� means that we have to learn things for ourselves. We can get advice from others, but ultimately decisions are ours to make. This relates to my relationship with my mother. Often she will tell me what she thinks I should do, but in the end tells me that I need to decide on things for myself and make my own mistakes. By making my own, hopefully logical, choices I will learn more, especially since I am the one who must live with the consequences whether they are good or bad. If I don’t live the way I want to I will regret later what I have not done, so in my experience it is best to listen to what others have to say, and then come up with a final conclusion on your own.
