Is wisdom a thing of the mind, or a thing of the heart?
Is wisdom associated with ones heart or is it associated with ones brain? Are we wise if we use our brain in dealing with day to day activities or wiser if we use our heart? What does our human funds of knowledge have to say here?
If heart and mind both are active you make a perfect human being ,if you are brave at heart you make bold decision with your mind and if you are softhearted ,you are emotional and your wisdom tells you to be polite and you see you can get more work done with your politeness.
I believe it's the relationship between the two.
Wisdom comes from applying a combination of logic and emotion and having the experience and appreciating the value of providing the best possible mix of the two in order to provide the most constructive outcome for any given situation.
Wisdom is a thing of the heart friend. And there two sides to it. We gain wisdom by experience - our own and others. Remember what the book says "Guide your heart with all diligence for out of it are the issues of life."
Wisdom is defined as a deep understanding and realizing of people, things, events or situations, resulting in the ability to choose or act to consistently produce the optimum results with a minimum of time and energy. So I'd say that it is a thing of the mind.
I see wisdom as the rightful application of knowledge once learned. First we learn then we learn how to use it in a wise manner.
I feel that wisdom are righteously earned by experience. The ingredient of what we have learnt through out our actions that made us more wiser and full of wisdoms. Thats my 2 cents
I always like to tell people that life does not come with age, but with life experience. And if one refuses to learn from experiences... well, what can I say?
I agree that wisdom comes from a combination of both. Part of it is intuitive , and the other part is learned from studied facts or experience.
The first step in the acquisition of wisdom is silence, the second listening, the third memory, the fourth practice, the fifth teaching others...
I really like what DJ said.
I would have to say that wisdom is both. One's brain may control the emotion, but it also tells one's emotions when not to be controlled.
They are both extremes, and extremes often are counter-balances to each other. Not always of equal weight though.
I would say that wisdom is a thing of the mind... It is learned through age and experience... hence the saying "a wise old owl", it's never a young owl.
