I’ve posted before about research into the most important life lessons we can learn from older people, taken from Karl Pillemer‘s excellent book, 30 Lessons for Living: Tried and True Advice from the Wisest Americans.

This isn’t firm scientific research — but we ignore it at our peril. We can learn much about life from those who have seen it to the end.
