3,500 Years of Wisdom in 3 Minutes [VIDEO]

Seniors weigh in on life’s most important life lessons.

Jan 25, 2015

YouTube sensation Freddy FairHair, known for his crazy pranks, recently created a video with a lot of heart. FairHair and friends approached seniors across the world to ask them a single question, “if you could say one thing to a young person, what would that be?”  From Brazil to Norway and China to the US, older folks weighed on what they have learned from their years on this planet – here are some of the most inspiring responses:

-  You are unique. There has never been anyone like you before, and there
   never will be again. So nevermind what everybody else thinks, become    
   that uniqueness.
-  Slow down. There is more to life than picking up speed.
-  Look for peace; in yourself and in the world.
-  We are all equal. We’re all human.  
-  The best currency that you can spend very freely and always get much  
   more than you pay for is love. Spend it.
