Not that I am all that wise, but I really do believe life's experiences give us wisdom and a greater capacity for charity. Maybe it comes with the realization in interacting with people that no one is immune from trials and the dings that life can throw your way. I am convinced that we all have "stuff" that we have to muddle through, some big stuff, some small stuff. I am amazed hearing about the various trials that friends and acquaintances have endured. I am certain that when we see someone that seems to have the "perfect life", they may very well have things that they are dealing with that we could not imagine. I hope to gain more wisdom, greater love and increased understanding of others as I go through life. I love this saying by Plato (a very wise man, he was a philosopher after all) his words were wise in 428 B.C. and still hold true. If we took this mantra into our daily lives, life would be a bit easier all the way around!
