About this Quote

The quote shows the speaker's desire to bring order and direction to someone's life, possibly referring to a child or a mentee. Nevertheless, the 2nd half of the quote reveals remorse and regret for not having the ability to leave a positive legacy for their own kids. Instead of supplying a stable and peaceful environment, they have only left behind a legacy of conflict and turmoil. This highlights a sense of frustration and failure in the speaker's function as a parent or leader. It also recommends that the speaker might have been involved in the wars, either directly or indirectly, contributing to the sense of regret and responsibility for their effect on future generations.
