One of my favorite memories, hitchiking in France we were picked up by a very nice lebanses frenchman and his wife. He had a very calm and powerful presence and spoke with a great deal of clarity and wisdom.
He showed us his wine cellar and shared with us a bottle he'd saved since his son was born. Alongside a cheap bottle which he really enjoyed. And he told us this and it's always stuck with me:
"The best wine, is the wine you enjoy best"
and goddamn if that isn't profound. and it applies to so much more than wine. Don't let anyone tell you what's best for you.
And to it, I've since added, that "to truly know the best wine, you must try all the wines".
it's funny and i joke about it as an excuse to enjoy more to drink, but it's important too - that second piece really goes to the socrates quote above - that the smart man must learn from everyone and everywhere, to LEARN what about certain wines or otherwise you might like, and equally important to learn to identify and share what others might like, and of course to identify the things unpleasant; then APPLY that to curate your experiences, and seek which things YOU personally like, and not be the STUPID man who's "only ever had budweiser cuz that's the best there is gaddangit!"
