17. Agree--altho men can gain wisdom on the journey too!

Too often, collections look just at the tales for the young...the ones that end in a wedding. But you can find tales of middle-age and elders as well, if you look. They speak to the issues of letting go and of finding contentment.

And folktales from around the world, not just European stories, can add a richness to understanding the human condition. I have a friend who compiled a "Cinderella" tale with bits from 20 different cultures--each with their own take, but the same basic concept.
