Wisdom Quotes

Wisdom is having the ability to act and think with judgment, experience, knowledge, and understanding. We achieve wisdom through life experiences.  Wisdom allows us to make smart decisions, which prevents mistakes and we are able to navigate life in a skillful manner.

To obtain wisdom, it is necessary to take risks and try new things such as traveling to another country or place we have never been to before. Wisdom is also obtained after we step out of our comfort zones, this could mean to do something that scares us, like public speaking or confronting any scary or awkward situation. Furthermore, wisdom is achieved with an open mind. Instead of judging things and people, we should put effort into trying to understand. This means to interact with people of different background, cultures, listening to different music and so forth, and this will enable us to learn about different ways of life, which creates wisdom.
