Wisdom of the Ages: inspiration for your This I Believe

Going on the assumption that wisdom is gained from experience, photographer Andrew Zuckerman compiled a book from interviews of famous and influential people over the age of 65.

He’s also created a film “Wisdom: the Greatest Gift One Generation can GIve to Another” and mini segments such as”Life”, “Love”,”Peace, and “Ideas”.

Brainpicking’s Maria Popova states 

Succinct and brilliantly curated, Wisdom is a living corpus callosum bridging the creative and intellectual hemispheres of culture’s collective brain, as close as we can get to an ideological and philosophical timecapsule of our era.”
