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.

Wisdom on Wikipedia.org
Buddha was born into a luxurious life as an Indian prince. His name means "the Awakened One," and he eventually became the originator of Buddhism. At age 29 he began his search for the cure of humanity's sorrow through peace and harmony with everything and everyone. His concept of karma, that what we put into the universe comes back to us, is a fundamental teaching of Buddhism that is still well-known today. He is said to have attained enlightenment during long meditation under a Bodhi tree, at which point he became Buddha until the age of 80, when he died in Kushinagar. Buddha Quotes
