Yes, I agree with Mr. Jennings. It is about how a person starts out trying to find who they are, and then as they progress through life they get a better and better idea of who they are.

I must say that I do agree with him. Mr. Jennings must be a very intellectual fella', probably a professor with a Ph.D in english literature and who teaches at Harvard University: -)
