“When you care to learn and use good knowledge it could turn into wisdom. It is cumulative and the day would come when you’ll discover you are being more empowered in your logic, good judgment, and overall thinking, which result is being acknowledged as wisdom.”
Maya

Knowledge or Wisdom
by Maya

Hello, dear readers! Here I present a few lines of wisdom. There are not in any specific order, perhaps just clarifying some opinions on a difference between knowledge and wisdom.
I simply love quotes, as all who visited my sites could see. I do consider the quotes “short pearls of wisdom.”
Or let’s just say; in the least of words expression of opinion, life event, the conclusion of thinking and of thinkers.

Because there is no way an ignorant person could ever create a quote. On a contrary, he would most likely never grasp its sense. I had fun several times with a comment on some of my philosophical posts. I simply can’t resist responding to those, no matter how busy I am. And I make also a point to visit that person’s site if available. It is almost a hundred percent game site.
So, here is an example:

Comment:
“Now what you should think about that? I have no idea what it means.”
My response: “Perhaps your question should be corrected. You most likely meant “I”, not “WE.” But you’ll have great fun with your own site.

Well, this is life… still, my site is for readers and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you again;
you, readers, and thinkers for visiting and for taking time to post your wonderful comments. You surely must know this is a fuel for me to go on, don’t you 😉
With you in wisdom,
Maya

“It is said that for the money you can have everything, but you cannot.
You can buy food, but not appetite;
medicine, but not health;
knowledge but not wisdom;
glitter, but not beauty;
fun, but not joy;
acquaintances, but not friends;
servants, but not faithfulness;
leisure, but not peace.
You can have the husk of everything for money, but not the kernel.”
Arne Garborg

Jimi Hendrix
