Modern Day Wise Words – Part Two

On the 19th, I published all sorts of saying and wisdom from my wise readers and Facebook friends. I thought they had neatly encapsulated all the wisdom in the world. I was wrong. It turns out that the world is positively brimming with wisdom it wants to share with us. And here it is, “Modern Day Wise Words – Part Two.”
