Wisdom Quotes

There may be wisdom of the ages, but it's not something they hand out readily on street corners. Wisdom comes with age it seems, and those wise enough to pen wisdom quotes seem to understand this all too well. We are born with naivety, which helps us explore our world without bounds or preconception. But it is that exploration, the travails of making both good and ill-advised decisions, that brings us wisdom. When we are young, we tend to think that youth is an asset. As we age, we learn the folly of this, finding that wisdom tempered with a bit of wile can move mountains that previously were immoveable. Reference.com Definition of Wisdom
