Wisdom

Wisdom the greatest virtue of all human qualities, for wisdom helps us exhibit the right qualities at the right time.

Famous saying :”Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.”

According to the American Heritage Dictionary, 6th edition wisdom is much more than just knowledge gained; it signifies the accumulation of knowledge, the application of learning, and the personification of God’s will in the creation of the universe .

Intelligence and Wisdom are two different terms which appears to be same. They are related terms but doesn’t mean the same thing. A wise person is someone who usually knows what the right thing to do is. Abstract nature of wisdom makes it more complicated. Reasoning is powered by wisdom.

Wisdom helps us make our own decisions. Wisdom can be acquired either by reflection, imitation or experience. It doesn’t mean wise men never make mistakes; they put forth great effort to avoid mistakes. If they face a failure they try to gain wisdom from that experience. Wisdom helps us not to fall into the same pit again and again. Wisdom provides ability to have a look into the future(TOMORROW).

Gaining wisdom is a lifelong experience. Every human being need to be wise as owl to have a peaceful life.
