Wisdom is not taking pride in dogma, and always believing you are right.

Wisdom is able to admit that you are wrong when you are.

Wisdom is knowing what’s right for you, even when no one else stands beside you.

Wisdom is knowing that others’ opinions of you is none of your business.

Wisdom is being afraid and going after “it” anyway.

Wisdom is not education. Education is good, but it alone is not wisdom.

Wisdom is being able to see both sides of a situation, and knowing there is a third.

Wisdom often means forging your own path through the wilderness.

Wisdom is always being open to learn something new.

Wisdom is letting go of old conceptions that no longer work.

Wisdom is being open to different opinions, even though you may disagree.

Wisdom is taking knowledge and coupling it with experience.

And finally… Wisdom is the realization that you know next to nothing at all.
