As We Reflect ……..


“What a man knows at 50 that he did not know at 20 is, for the most part, incommunicable. The knowledge he ha acquired with age is not the knowledge of formulas, or forms of words, but of people, places, actions – a knowledge not gained by words but by touch, sight, sound, victories, failures, sleeplessness, devotion, love – the human experiences and emotions of this earth and of oneself and other men, and perhaps, too, a little faith, a little reverence for things you cannot see.”
~ Adlai Stevenson.

    Very poignant & very true. I remember when I was younger I discounted the value of life experience. Now I see life experience so valuable. Learning always continues & those who have a wealth of experiences can learn as much from those who have little experience. It’s just a matter of perspective.

    I’ve wondered sometime if I went ‘back’ in time with the knowledge I know now (at alomst 60) what would be the MOST important thing I would change ?? One or two but the rest are learning lessons.

    Love the read.

  9. I wish Mr. Stevenson were here to run for president again(he would be the only Democrat I would vote for this time around)… And maybe this time he would win(if his predecessor and the party, haven’t doomed his chance)…If his words are true, then we,(the U.S. voter) should have learned something in the last 60+ years, since he was a candidate in 1950.
    When you post the words of great people Michael, they live on…Nice.

    All so very true. The cumulative effect of life experiences culminate in one thing that can never be taught except through living a life….that one thing is called wisdom.
