He could have done anything he wanted.
But he ran away before he did anything.
Both of them had every chance in the world.
Only one of them tried.
And even though she failed she had learned a lesson.
Not to run from your problems.
He, on the other hand, never learned anything.
And as a consequence, he spent his life running as soon as things got hard.

The other didn’t.
One of them succeeded in the end.
Which one we don’t know.
