I see a wiser person than when I was younger: having babies, and passing 30, were the turning points. What women in their 40s – I am 39 – lack in gorgeousness, they make up for in wisdom. I love ageing, despite the drawbacks – thinner, drier skin.
When an opponent comes forward, move in and greet him if he wants to pull back, send him on his way.
The older I get the more wisdom I find in the ancient rule of taking first things first. A process which often reduces the most complex human problem to a manageable proportion.
We don’t receive wisdom we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.
