Wise people are humble. There is no such thing as someone
who is both arrogant and wise.

*

Wisdom and it’s quest breed kindness and compassion.

*

Wisdom isΒ mutually incompatible to fear. In fact

    • No, not wise Alastair, just a fair amount of experience to draw upon. Perhaps I’ll be wise one day (one can hope), but now only a work in progress, dear friend! πŸ™‚ xx

      • Yeah, you keep telling yourself that. We all know different already. You are a wise one, as well as inspirational. You are a definite must for anyone’s blogger collection πŸ˜‰

  2. These are good. I can’t stand slushy meaningless quotes (I did a whole post on the matter a few weeks ago!) but these are quite matter-of-fact and make good points. The only one I’m questioning, and maybe I’m missing the point (or just being too pedantic!) is ‘Wisdom is mutually incompatible to fear. In fact it’s what enables a person to overcome fear.’ That seems to imply that fear is always something wrong to feel; obviously it’s not good to fear everything and to let it cripple you from doing what you want to do, but fear is a necessary human survival feeling that tells us we might be in danger and need to act, so I don’t see how wisdom is mutually incompatible to it. I would say wisdom is more about recognising the difference between fear from real threats, and fear from imagined threats. Haha, sorry, I tend to over-analyse!

    • I agree with you. This was not worded as well as it could have been. Fear is a survival mechanism, absolutely necessary. As you say, wisdom helps to understand the nature of the fear and make better choices as a result. Thanks, you are very wise yourself. And I for one enjoy the company of women who have a mind and aren’t afraid to use it! Again my thanks Vanessa, much appreciated,

Thank you for your thoughts!
