I beg to disagree on both points. But this is just me
Well, I remember some epic naps 😀 And I don´t know wise people at all. But I think proverbs are not literal. I understand this like we need time and work to make things happen, and there is a natural time for these things to happen. But maybe I´m wrong, and of course, you may disagree 🙂
So,so true! Wisdom comes with age – most times.
Let me invite you to my blog party. It just started. Here’s the link. https://acookingpotandtwistedtales.com/2017/03/04/its-a-spring-party-lets-groove-%f0%9f%8e%b6%f0%9f%8c%bb%f0%9f%8c%b7%e2%9a%98%f0%9f%8c%ba%f0%9f%8d%89%f0%9f%8d%94%f0%9f%8d%97%f0%9f%8d%bf%f0%9f%8d%a6%f0%9f%8d%bb%f0%9f%92%83/
Thank you so much for the invitation! I´ll be there in a minute 😀
That would be great 🙂
Oh, I agree. Not that I think I am much wise at 80 than I was at sixty, but I was definitely wiser at sixty than I was at twenty.
Hahaha! I think that´s the point 🙂
Perhaps the proverb is trying to tell is the older we grow, the more we experience, the wiser we should get if we do get wiser.
Good point! Looks like this proverb allows a lot of interpretations 😀
