A quote from Pope Francis:
“Old age is — as I like to say — the seat of life’s wisdom. The old have acquired the wisdom that comes from having journeyed through life … Let us pass on this wisdom to the young: like good win that improves with age, let us give life’s wisdom to the young. I am reminded of a German poet who said of old age: Es is ruhig, das Alter, und fromm: it is a time of tranquility and prayer.”
-- Audience with the College of Cardinals, Clementine Hall, March 15, 2013
