There is something that we tend to accumulate over the course of time and the older we get, the more we possess. Although we may have a measure of it when we were younger as well, there is something about having it when we are older that is just amazing. I’m talking about wisdom, and once you have it, it will guide you through life.

Dave Barry is famous for having something to say in the form of a quote of what he has learned over the years. During those years, he has become a columnist and author and has even won a pulitzer prize as well. If you would like to have some of his pearls of wisdom, they are laid out for you on the page. Put them into practice in your own life and you are likely to go far.
