Wisdom is a virtue that isn't innate. Gained through attempting new things and
studied perspective. Whether you are a young child discovering the world, or an elder checking off the days to transition, one needs to pause. To explore. Experience. And reflect. Intelligent beings, knowing, but not understanding will fail to achieve wisdom. Yes, it takes time. Nibbling away at our lot. But necessary, if we are to make good judgements, build strong character, and bring honor to ourselves.
