Wisdom: Gems of Wise Counsel Through the Ages
William F. Lee III
WHAT IS WISDOM?
We’ve all heard about wisdom. But what is it? How does it relate to knowledge? How does one acquire wisdom? Dictionaries use terms like good practical judgment, good sense, and a high degree of knowledge. Those who are wise usually have education, perception, and a crystal ball that allows them to look into the past and future.
William Lee III has collected several thousand quotes that represent gems of wisdom from all historical ages and from all areas of human professional fields. Statements from thinkers like Confucius, Buddha, Metis, Athene, Aristotle, Plato, Mozart, Shakespeare, Einstein and many more illustrate the importance of wisdom.
Enjoy these great gems of wisdom. And remember what poet W.B. Yeats reminded us: "Think like a wise man (or woman) but express yourself like the common people."
