Speaking of which, what have YOU learned in your life? What wisdom has come your way? And if you want to share it with other readers of this blog, click "Sign In" below and leave a comment or send me an email.

I'll sort through the submissions, pick some, and post them here in time for International Wisdom Day (a holiday that doesn't yet exist, but probably should).
