Maya Angelou once said, "When you know better, you do better." When you're young, it's hard to do better when you don't know better. It takes years of mistakes and different experiences for people to really know what's best for them. That's why you always hear people talk about getting older and wiser — wisdom generally comes with the passage of time.
I found something that may help younger people tap into that fountain of wisdom: a neat Quora thread that asked people in their 40s and 50s to give general advice to those in their 20s and 30s. Read on to find out what gems of advice the older generation has for the younger ones.
