I do not call myself wise. But I think I can recognize wisdom. Often the wise ones are in their 70’s and 80’s or older. The problem is, people of that age are not that numerous and the ones that are alive are often kept in retirement centers or institutions. Worse yet is when they don’t have the physical energy to interact in public. These elements “conspire” to make a shortage of wise people.
But when we learn to take better care of our brains and bodies and when more of us are willing to be actively engaged in our 70’s and 80’s and beyond, we have a chance of bringing the world a rich source of wisdom. The world could use more wisdom now, and the sooner we get wise, the better.
