Acquiring Wisdom in Life

A long life, though filled with trials and sorrows, may also bring one wisdom. For instance, one might learn what I have learned about moths: that they do not like being washed. They are quiet and their dust is part of their personality. Though the moth seems truly to cry out for cleaning, it does not want to be cleaned. I have learned in fact that no creature looks more forlorn than a moth that has gotten a good scrubbing with a coarse brush.

Many are the things I have learned in my long years. I shall write them here in due time.
