The Myth of “Boy Wizards”

True wizards begin their careers when everyone else’s are winding down with retirement in sight.

This is because magic is about wisdom as much as it is about power, and all the discernment in the world cannot compensate for the lack of experience of youth.

There are no “boy wizards”, nor ever were.

I would have disagreed with this thirty years ago, but now I know better.
