I was going through some notes recently and found a page where I’d written the following comment:
“Wisdom is not just an accumulation of knowledge. It’s a genius. A different sort.”
I’m certain I heard someone say this in an interview but unfortunately, I didn’t note who. I apologize for not being able to give credit.
I think it is true that wisdom goes beyond just knowledge. And it is truly genius. When I hear true wisdom it always gives me reason to pause, to consider, to think. I know it’s something I need to contemplate more fully.
That moment stands apart. It’s clear. It’s as if the universe is giving you a little space before and after, separating it from the clutter of daily life, so you can recall the moment again and again.
Wisdom is a gift, given freely by those around you. I’m grateful.
