“By three methods we may learn wisdom: first by reflection, which is noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third, by experience, which is the most bitter.”
Wisdom comes alone through suffering.
~ Aeschylus 525-456 BC
Without a doubt, being smart and intelligent is important in life to maneuver your way out of danger and into comfort. But what’s more important than being smart and intelligent is knowing how and when to use them. Wisdom does this. Wisdom shows you how to use your knowledge and intelligence effectively and efficiently to acquire more of what you’re in need of. Accumulate more wisdom and you’ll gain more of what’s needed in life to succeed. Just remember that it is difficult to obtain wisdom – it requires much pain and solitude. Once you have acquired enough wisdom in your life, you will be able to bear most anything that you’re faced with.
