Wisdom comes from all kinds of resources but sometimes, none is better than the wisdom that comes from older people. The thing that makes wise people wise…is their ability to take the nuggets of wisdom that they learn throughout their lifetime and apply it to their own lives.
The following short story illustrates this point perfectly.
An old country doctor was celebrated for his wisdom. “Dr. Sage,” a young man asked, “how did you get so wise?”
“Weren’t hard,” said the doc. “I’ve got good judgment. Now, good judgment comes from experience,” he continued. “And experience – well, that comes from having bad judgment.”
