The wisdom of the ages on the pages of the Times

The Instapundit has linked to a story from the New York Times this morning, in which social science has discovered that there's a link between education and long life.
The one social factor that researchers agree is consistently linked to longer lives in every country where it has been studied is education. It is more important than race; it obliterates any effects of income.

Ah. Modern social science discovers the wisdom of Solomon...

Proverbs 3:1-2

My son, do not forget my teaching,
but keep my commands in your heart,

for they will prolong your life many years
and bring you prosperity.

Proverbs 3:13-16

Blessed is the man who finds wisdom,
the man who gains understanding,

for she is more profitable than silver
and yields better returns than gold.

She is more precious than rubies;
nothing you desire can compare with her.

Long life is in her right hand;
in her left hand are riches and honor.
