Wisdom is perhaps the greatest human good, because it can then lead to most or all of the others.
It's never about aphorisms or clever sayings, but can at times be captured or stimulated by such verbal artistry.
Wisdom is about perception, interpretation, perspective, attitude, emotion, commitment, and action. It's all encompassing.
Too many of us come to wisdom much later in life than we would, in wise retrospect, have liked. But: Better late than never.
Wisdom is a matter of the soul and the body together.
It's as rare in our world as it is important.
We need it in our own hearts and minds, but also in our friends, families, associates, and political representatives. The more we cultivate it within, the better we can bring it to others, and receive it well when they bring it to us.
A lack of wisdom isn't just inconvenient, but actually dangerous.
Wisdom is almost as contagious as foolishness, but not quite.
The best way to enhance it in your life is to network with sages, and engage in often and honest self examination.
Wisdom can lead us down surprising and wonderful paths, if we'll just let it. But of course that requires courage, which, fortunately, wisdom can itself bring.
