If we talk about 'wisdom' it is being wise or intelligent in very simple words. We call 'wise' to an intelligent or matured person. Let's see what famous people or scholars have said about 'wisdom':
- David Starr Jordan: Wisdom is knowing what to do next; Skill is knowing how ot do it, and Virtue is doing it.
- Elbert Hubbard: To know when to be generous and when firm—that is wisdom.
- Immanuel Kant: Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life.
It is a fact that like other skills, wisdom can be acquired or learned. Skill development is a process which enhances human capabilities and this process results in self growth, self satisfaction.
'The Wisdom Page' is a compilation of wisdom-related resources — various on-line texts concerning wisdom, references to books about wisdom, information about organizations that promote wisdom, wise activities, and listener groups concerned with aspects of wisdom.
There are many 'FREE CONTEMPORARY BOOKS ABOUT WISDOM AND WISE LIVING' for download and online reading.
They also offer'WISDOM 101' a free online course in practical wisdom. It is the outgrowth of a classroom course given at Rollins College by Professor Alan Nordstrom, and uses short chapters from Cop Macdonald's book GETTING A LIFE to stir thinking about many common life situations.
What is this course about?
'This free online course is about crafting full, rich, creative, and enjoyable lives for ourselves — lives that are significant, lives that contribute in some way to the world around us. The course is rooted in the idea that some steps toward wisdom require nothing more than a fresh look at common life situations, nothing more than an appreciation of the difference between skillful and unskillful ways of dealing with those situations.'
