Very true... though when you have the money you still have to be careful
When I got my first job after college I wasn't used to the income and burned through it pretty quickly, not really having a concept of how to manage money of a larger amount.
Though I'm still young the last 4 years has taught me a ton about how/when to spend and how to save money effectively.
Living life is the best learning tool there is.
