Thought of the Week – 20th June 2022

It is often said that youth is wasted on the young. Does that mean wisdom is wasted on the old? It all depends on how we choose to experience the second half of life: Do we practice gratitude, or pursue gratification? Grow into our individuality, or confine ourselves to stereotypes or social norms? Strive to attain and share knowledge, or to accumulate material rewards? “Ancora Imparo”—“I’m still learning”— was written above Michelangelo’s studio door in the ninth decade of his life.

We all need this reminder, don’t we?
