The Wisdom of Others

...The wisdom quoted here will be what seems wise to me. Different for you perhaps. But I imagine that if it strikes me as wise, it may simply be because it is a lesson I have yet to learn. What is stunning is that you may scratch any human, from any walk of life, and they will inevitably produce some insight, some profundity. But then, wisdom isn't a particular thought alone but the thought embodied in how you live your life, actual ongoing evidence that , this thought or idea or whatever, is indeed wise. But is wise always practical? And is practical actually a benign abfuscation of what is merely expedient? Oh but do I ever ramble. As is my wont. Get used to it. So, I intend to take note of that which I hear or read that 'strikes' me. Quote them here and then ponder /ruminate/brainstorm its' meaning for me. Out of THAT, perhaps, wisdom of my own, or at least thoughts that I originate, even if am only just discovering what those wiser have long known. Knowing is magic. Transformational. And my way of walking that wisdom, your way... well, each, I suspect, are as seperate and unique as facets in a prism, the combined refracted light of which tickles the mind..
