Thanks, Jacques. Again with words, wisdom has something inside related to old ... it is more a virtue of standing will and aging than of sharp intelligent ability to understand... one is wise to something when one can imagine what the next thing to happen will be, what usually only happens after one has seen that to happen a number of times.
There's a saying in Spain that goes
Más sabe el diablo por viejo que por diablo.
(More knows the devil out of age than out of being a devil)
...and well, I once read in America Architecture was being called the Profession of the Old, itself a testimony of the many subjects one needs to master (an impliedly through experience) (and note, subjects, master) before one can be called a Master, that in spanish, like in English is a label deferently used with architects.
So let's face mastery to any degree we may attain with understanding, for the benefit of all and our own happiness and satisfaction.
