Rewrite Their Teens

You couldn't get hold of the things you'd done and turn them right again.  Such a power might be given to the gods, but it was not given to women and men, and that was probably a good thing.  Had it been otherwise, people would probably die of old age still trying to rewrite their teens.

-- Stephen Edwin King (21 September 1947 -), American author, screenwriter. 2003 recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award by the National Book Awards, The Stand (1978)
