Is there anyone in your life who you feel is exceptionally wise?  
I wouldn’t say anyone is exceptionally wise in my life right now. I think I will delve into the past, this person I knew because he was family. My granddad was always extremely wise. Shame my dad never inherited his wisdom really. Yeah, granddad was always quoting philosophers. Not in a stupid wannabe way though, he really meant what he said, like he truly believed. I didn’t really know what he was going on about at the time, but none the less I’d listen to him. He was brilliant. Another thing he would do was give me a tenner every time I'd see him, which was a lot for in the nineties. My other granddad would only give me 20p if I were lucky. I know money doesn't count towards wisdom, but it counted towards my small model car collection. Unfortunately the old man isn’t around anymore. To be honest I wish he was, then maybe he could knock a bit of fucking sense and wisdom into my father.
