You can find wisdom in all kinds of unexpected places.
keep your eyes and your ears open.
Clever,stupid, those you disagree with, right wing, left wing whatever….

Don't mistake the artist fro the art, everyone alive learns and everyone has something worthwhile to say whether they know it or not.

It's not just people you have to learn to judge on their merits, it's ideas.
Just because you think someone is detestable,wrong headed or simply annoying is no guarantee they aren't right .
Wisdom is everywhere.
