In fact, a wise person will always be with ears and heart open to the new, to the "adding of something useful", to the whisperings of the Holy Spirit, in case she/she is a true christian. The wise does not hold any "chronos", that ie, he is not actually attained to ages. He is not too concerned about growing older and older, for this is a natural consequence of being human. That simple!
Yet, I hear a reader asking me: how to be wise in amidst of such a hard time? Frankly, I do not have "ready-answers". Nevertheless, I thing to have some experiences out of my 51 years of age:
1. Hear it all; filter it all. Hold firm to the good things (and persons) you consider;
2. Hear it all; filter it all. Do your best in everything. This brings a true meaning for life;
3. Hear it all; filter it all. Endeavour for the better. Search until you find it;
4. Hear it all; filter it all. Do not take it for granted first time. Delve further into it;
5. Hear it all; filter it all. Give thanks to the Lord, in everything.
Wisdom is a little flower which grows inside of each one of us, and it comes up to the surface through our actions - not only words.
Be wise! Glory to God!
