The search for wisdom

We heard an interview with Dr. Karl Pillemer, professor of human development at Cornell University and the author of a book called Thirty Lessons for Living—Tried and True Advice from the Wisest Americans.

Pillemer asked people who have lived 70 or more years to share their wisdom and came up with 30 lessons.

The book sounds interesting, and we were intrigued by something  this author said in the interview. “We can’t tell each other how to live, but we can gain a lot from hearing the life wisdom of others.”

The next time you talk to a family member or a friend who is over 70, remember to ask that person to share a lesson he or she has learned. We all can learn a lot from others—no matter if they’re young or old.

We’ll write more about this book in a future blog post.
