Most recently I finished a bunch more illustrations for it. Because this is a handbook for cultivating wisdom I want it to appeal to all sorts of learning styles. As a visual person I appreciate how well an image can communicate an idea or concept. As a designer it's fun to play with words and images to get something across effectively and aesthetically.
One of the chapters of 'Wise at Any Age' looks at universal wisdom - wisdom based on a deep knowledge of what really is. While there are thousands of examples of wonderful teachers who have embraced and taught with universal wisdom, I selected just a few to illustrate the point:
|'Be the change you want to see in the world'|
|'Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all'|
- Helen Keller
|'Know the rules well so you can break them effectively'|
- His Holiness the Dalai Lama
'Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies'
- Nelson Mandela
