Fathers Used to Give Sage Wisdom

I don’t know about you, but when I was a kid, the men in my life provided sage wisdom. Whether it was my grandfather, father, a neighbor, or even my first boss, they always had some quip or short saying that really summed up a life lesson. A couple of examples include, “don’t pee into the wind,” or “treat others the way you want to be treated.”

Even as an adult, I find myself pondering some of the meaning or the story that triggered the saying.
