wisdom is my bff.

I am an avid fan of wisdom. A scholar at her feet even… I’m constantly amazed at how wise she is, and yet how simply she speaks out. If we’re ready to hear her.

‘the quality or state of being wise; knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just judgment as to action; sagacity, discernment, or insight.’

I like books full of wisdom. This morning, I read this, and it was too good not to share.

“Don’t lose your grip on love and loyalty. Tie them around your neck; carve their initials on your heart. Earn a reputation for living well.

Trust. From the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen. Don’t assume that you know it all.

You’re blessed when you meet lady wisdom, when you make friends with insight. She’s worth far more than money in the bank; her friendship is better than a big salary. Her value exceeds all the trappings of wealth;  nothing you could wish for holds a candle to her. With one hand she gives long life, with the other she confers recognition.
Her manner is beautiful, her life wonderfully complete. She’s the very tree of life to those who embrace her. Hold her tight—and be blessed.

Guard clear thinking and common sense with your life;  don’t for a minute lose sight of them. They’ll keep your soul alive and well, they’ll keep you fit and attractive.
You’ll travel safely, you’ll neither tire nor trip. You’ll take afternoon naps without a worry, you’ll enjoy a good night’s sleep.

Never walk away from someone who deserves help. Don’t tell your neighbor “Maybe some other time” or “Try me tomorrow”when the money’s right there in your pocket. Don’t figure ways of taking advantage of your neighbor when he’s sitting there trusting and unsuspecting.

Wise living gets rewarded with honor; stupid living gets the booby prize.”
