Wisdom. What a wonderful gift.  Some people overflow with wisdom. Others…..well, you get the picture.  It’s hard to develop wisdom early in life. The young person simply hasn’t experienced the school of hard knocks. As we age, we go through a series of ups and downs.  We have to endure divorce, job loss, job change, illness, and sometimes the death of friends or loved ones.

These experiences, in my opinion, help you develop a thicker skin and, over the years, enable you to create a supply of wisdom that you can share with others. Now comes a study showing that boomers, age 60 and older, are better able to solve social conflicts. HealthDay reporter Jenifer Goodwin takes a look at research that will give older boomers something to brag about.

As I was exploring the subject of wisdom on the Internet, I came across a fun website. At wisdomquotes.com, you can explore quotes on age, attitude, commitment , curiosity, fear, to name a few. I found one from Sam Levenson: It’s so simple to be wise. Just think of something stupid to say and then don’t say it.” One can only imagine how many people get in trouble by ignoring  that simple gem of wisdom.
