WISDOM

 

 

It's not what I know; rather, it is the understanding that I am little more than a grain of sand on a crowded beach. But, with wisdom, friends, faith and love, I am a huge bolder among specks of sand. And moreover, I can be happy and be everything I was meant to be.

 

Every day of my life, I try to meet someone that will make my life richer. I believe that every man I meet in some way is richer in knowledge than me.

 

A wise man is one who realizes that no matter his station in life, his wisdom rarely exceeds his neighbour.

 

Wisdom has taught me to recognize that I do not know what morality means to someone else, only what I deem it to be.

 

Wisdom is a rare and expensive commodity. However, ignorance is abundant and cheap.

                                                                                                   

Wisdom is what you gain through listening and learning.

 

Self-discipline is the key to a fruitful and productive life. With some discipline, one can solve a few problems. But with much discipline, one can solve most problems. The choice is yours to make.

 

A man who refuses to change his thoughts and beliefs when he knows he should has the distinction of being a learned fool.

 

One Christmas morning when I was a youth my dad proudly gave me a Christmas gift. I quickly opened the small box with no wrapping. To my surprise, there wasn't anything in the box. Curiously, I questioned my dad and told him that he forgot to give me a present. He replied, "Inside that box are something that is referred to as hope, faith and courage. If you place them in a safe place, they'll last you a lifetime."

 

Smart people recognize their shortcomings. In contrast, intelligent people correct their flaws and learn from them.

 

The wisest and spiritual man surrenders to something. Hopefully, you will have a choice and it will be fruitful.

 

Wisdom is the ability to recognize differences in people. A wise man realizes every man he encounters is his teacher, as well as his pupil. But a fool believes he is every man's teacher.

 

What makes a man wise and humble is his ability to recognize that his knowledge rarely exceeds his fellow man.
