Wisdom is understanding how eternal truth can be applied to life.
Socrates was the first who brought philosophy from heaven, distributed it among the people, and enticed them to study the science of life, human morals, and the consequences of good and evil.
Science is seldom connected with wisdom. A scholarly person knows many unnecessary things. A wise person knows few things, but all that he knows is necessary both for humanity and for himself.
He who understands his soul will understand the divine spark within himself.
— Marcus Tullius Cicero
Wise people cannot be sufficiently educated and educated people cannot be sufficiently wise.
The goodness given to us by wisdom compares to all other knowledge in the same way that in a desert, a vessel filled with water compares to mountains of gold.
