I don't believe it automatically comes with aging and I don't believe it can't be found in people very much younger. One rarely hears of aged immaturity but it's a lot more common than many of us would like to acknowledge.

    I may be getting old but I refuse to grow up! Sadly a lot of us old farts just get more stubborn and ornery as we age.... My Pops said it best.."The more I know the more I realize how little I know" It is a sad circle we run...in the end sure we may know a bit more not make as many mistakes...... but wise?.....Hell no....definitely a rare find...a wise man that is....

    Even that's by no means a given. It should be, wisdom should be, but it isn't.

    Wisdom is the application of intelligence, right? It makes sense that in gaining it one might surrender a little certainty. There's too much to know.

    I chose the word "Wisdom" for a reason.
    I think you know why.
    Wouldn't it be awesome if the members of Congress and the Senate utilized the intelligence and wisdom they purportedly possess to work on behalf of the people they represent.
    They don't.
    Surrendering even a "little certainty" will never occur unless term limits are imposed on politicians to limit the amount of time that they can serve in The House or the Senate.
    The Presidential seat is limited to two terms in office.
    Fortunately, the American people do have the the ability to vote their congressional representatives and Senators out office regardless of the lack of term limits.

    I'll just leave this here...

    Ecclesiastes - A short book written to the man (no gender implied) walking under the sun (us). There is nothing new under the sun. Everything is vanity (emptiness). What goes around comes around.
    Also, Wisdom speaks in this book.
    Talks a lot about aging, etc...
    And there's a Byrd's song in here.
    Short book, easy read, I highly recommend it.

    It's an easy book to take the wrong way though. It's only the final part that makes the whole book make sense.
    I still recall that day, sometime in the mid 80s when I was reading it on a train station platform and burst out laughing in the early section {I think the first chapter} when the writer realizes the wise person and the fool both reach the same ending and asks what has he to gain in being wise if this is the case.
    For some reason, that really tickled me. But it actually provides the key to the book and particularly the book's conclusion.

    Is Miroslav banned now? It has the word 'banned' under his name.

    At least it will give him time to finish that studio before we all die of old age.
