The book trailer for Andrew Zuckerman’s Wisdom: The Greatest Gift One Generation Can Give to Another is a treasure trove of wise words from leaders of all fields who are all over 65 years old.

Here are some of our favorites from the wise words spoketh:

“Your best work is your expression of yourself. Now you may not be the greatest at it, but when you do it, you’re the only expert in it.” – Frank Gehry, architect.

“You can’t get to wonderful without passing through alright. You can’t skip from not being able to function all the way over to running the whole show.” – Bill Withers, musician.

“I always thought that inspiration was for amateurs. The rest of us just show up and get to work. If you wait around for the clouds to part and a bolt of lightning to strike you in the brain, you’re not going to make an awful lot of work.” – Chuck Close, artist.
