    According to the Random House Dictionary, wisdom is:

        The quality or state of being wise; knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just judgment as to action; sagacity, discernment, or insight.
        Scholarly knowledge or learning: the wisdom of the schools.
        Wise sayings or teachings; precepts.
        a wise act or saying.

    My personal definition is:

        The knowledge of how to use the knowledge you have.

    I would ask what purpose suffering serves on this earth. No need to give me a religious answer to this; I mean what does it achieve in this life.
