On Wisdom: Attributes: universality

1. Wisdom is everywhere the same.

2. It has, however, a large and varied wardrobe.

3. Thus while wisdom may appear to be different at different times and in different places, stripped naked it is familiar to all.

4. Why, then, have various generations and cultures practiced such evils as human sacrifice, genocide, and slavery?

5. Practices come and go; wisdom abides.

6. Wisdom is not what is wise, but that by which it is wise; not what should be done, but why it should be done; not the answer, but the explanation.

7. Wisdom is simple; knowledge, complex. Wisdom is finite; knowledge, infinite. Wisdom is increasingly easy to comprehend the more one considers it; knowledge, increasingly difficult the more one knows. Wisdom leads to understanding; knowledge, to discovery.

8. The principles of wisdom are within the grasp of every child, but to grasp them is the work of a lifetime.

One Hundred
One hundred is a milestone indeed!Now one knows at least one has lived long.Even so, life finds much good to read,Having loved good reading all along.Underneath the years one still has wonder,Naked as it was when it was born,Delighted to be blessed a little longer,Reluctant to request much of the dawn.Each year of life's a gift of grace untold.Do, then, find pleasure rich in growing old.
