what is wisdom ?
it is very abstract . it is very difficulty to dig out . if you open the door of the wisdom ,you will live freely and happily . my chinese history teacher said . he learns traditional culture for many years ,but just touch the surface . he will spend the whole life researching into it
"Never mistake knowledge for wisdom. One helps you make a living; the other helps you make a life." - Sandra Carey
"Memory is the mother of all wisdom." - Aeschylus
"No man was ever wise by chance." - Lucius Annaeus Seneca
"Wisdom is not wisdom when it is derived from books alone." - Horace
Simply put, one cannot be wise without living a life.
Wisdom is the understanding and acceptance of your ignorance. Like the saying goes, ‘the more you know, the less you know.’
the Greek word of wisdom is "Sophia"
wisdom is applying and understanding
Lots of people have knowledge but if they cannot apply it to real life, they have little or no wisdom.
Without diving into the complicated stratagems of Greek philosophy, simply put, a wise man does not need to test a fire to know it will burn him. A fool will test the fire and gain knowledge by being burned.
When your wise!? Actually I don't know I think it is a gift...
Like love, it is undefinable so I will quote one of the unknown Zen Masters. It is wisdom seeking wisdom.
