Wisdom Begins In Wonder


“Wisdom begins in wonder.”

I possess no certain or ultimate knowledge – not a smidgen, not a drop. All my “facts” are but a house of cards balanced atop a realm of wonder. Use whatever knowledge you have but see it’s limitations. Knowledge alone does not suffice; it has no heart. No amount of knowledge will nourish or sustain your spirit; it can never bring you ultimate happiness or peace. Life requires more than knowledge; it requires intense feeling and constant energy. Life demands right action if knowledge is to come alive. –¬†Socrates, Peaceful Warrior
