What is man’s ultimate direction in life? It is to look for love, truth, virtue, and beauty.
When I can look life in the eyes, grown calm and very coldly wise, life will have given me the truth, and taken in exchange – my youth.
When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don’t adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.
Wisdom is the reward you get for a lifetime of listening when you’d have preferred to talk.
The young man knows the rules, but the old man knows the exceptions.
Oliver Wendell Holmes
