W is for Wisdom

Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom. 
  ~ Thomas Jefferson          

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 bitterest. 
   ~  Confucius                   

The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.
~ Socrates                  

Wisdom ceases to be wisdom
 when it becomes too proud to weep, 
too grave to laugh, 
and too selfish to seek other than itself.
~ Khalil Gibran

I think wisdom is a wonderful thing to have. My favorite quote of wisdom is from Job 28:28

And he said to man, The fear of the Lord—that is wisdom, and to shun evil is understanding.”

have a great Sunday!
