Doesn't wiseness come with age?I heard this saying once: a fool thinks he knows everything. A wise man knows he doesn't.

    But...... if one continues to sharpen as he ages, he gets better with age, and if it is wisdom he continues to sharpen, he grows in wisdom with age. We all begin with our own degree of intelligence, but we have the choice to stagnate or grow.

    Dale it doesn't, there is no co relation to my mind between wisdom and age, if I am a wood worker, I may sharpen my skill over time, if I am open to learning, therefore those who introspect, learn, and are open to self criticism wiser and ripen earlier, that's my take.

    Wisdom can come with age if you live your life seeking wisdom, learning from mistakes, (yours and others) . However, I have an ex-husband who is at least as mean, stubborn, unyielding, and unwilling to improve his ways, as he was that fateful day I met him, (if not more so) .
