About Wisdom of the Ages

“Wisdom of the Ages” asks people to share the answer to a simple (but not so simple) question. What lesson have you learnt in life?

Just as my stitch collection shares knowledge that was handed on orally, lessons learnt from others in the past were also handed down the generations in the form of little sayings, expressions, anecdotes and peoples stories. I am trying to hint at this with the “Wisdom of the Ages” project. With this project I hope create a snap shot of common sense or popular wisdom.

The Wisdom of the ages project started life off as a straight web page as time went on I decided to transfer the contributions a blog as the software meant it was easier to maintain.


Leave a comment answering the question and it will be published online as a post.

    My words of wisdom:

    The trick to happiness is not having what you want, but wanting what you have.

    Something I try to live by daily.
