Hello everybody it’s Ray, today we’re gonna explore some quotes about wisdom
Welcome to Ray’s English Corner, where I do a video completely in English
remember to turn on the CC captions, the button’s right here, in order to understand me better
And today, as you have requested, I’ll be talking about some...
quotes about “wisdom”
What is wisdom? By definition, it is the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgement at the right time
To be wise is something that a man pursues
in the Bible, when King Solomon was offered anything in the world, he chose wisdom above anything else
But wisdom, it’s so elusive, right? How do you become wise? What does becoming wise even mean?
What, do I look like I know? I have no idea.
But, I did look through tons and tons of inspirational quotes about wisdom by different
philosophers, teachers, thinkers, and just great people in general…
and I still have no idea
But what I can do is provide you with them quotes and hopefully, after this video, perhaps, maybe, you will get inspired
Or not
The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing
So you have to start from the absolute zero. Just knowing that you are a complete idiot makes you less of an idiot
Wow, that makes me feel so much better about myself
That also means Jon Snow has true wisdom...
You know nothing, Jon Snow
Wisdom is the right use of knowledge. To know is not to be wise, but to know how to use knowledge is to have wisdom.
So this quote, we have the difference between knowledge and wisdom
Knowledge can be seen as an individual item that you collect, but wisdom is the proper use of the collective knowledge
It’s really different, knowing what’s right and actually putting it into practice
For example I know for a fact that fried chicken is not good for me
And I eat it anyway
Every week, seven days a week
Knowledge comes, but wisdom lingers.
Knowledge comes by studying and then you remember them. But as time fades, so does your memory
However, if you keep acquiring knowledge and experience, they transform and transcend into wisdom. And that sticks
Do you know what that means?
The more you forget, the wiser you are
I’m good at forgetting things, that means I’m wise. (NOT!)
Life and wisdom are like a man and a woman. Only when you learn both will you be complete.
When we gain enough knowledge we become wise, it will slowly turn into who we are as a person in life
Through knowledge you can learn about wisdom, and through wisdom you can learn about life. It’s all connected
But how can we acquire wisdom?
A prudent question is one-half of wisdom.
This reminds me of another quote: “There are no stupid questions. Just inquisitive idiots.”
Jokes aside, a well thought-out question is indeed the first step to wisdom
When you ask a question carefully
it means you’ve already researched what you don’t know and you’re asking a specific question to address your ignorance
So by doing that, you’ll be gaining some wisdom even before you ask the question. Not to mention after you get the answer
Seriously nowadays, 80% of all questions can be answered by “go google it”. So, do your research
From the errors of others, a wise man corrects his own.
Another way of finding wisdom is from the mistakes of others
That’s like the safest way, just keep your distance, judge, and say “I’ll never be that stupid.”
But another way to look at it is to not find fault with others, but instead focus on making yourself better
So next time you see someone doing something you disagree with
don’t just judge them, keep it to yourself and make sure you don’t make the same mistake
Nobody can give you wiser advice than yourself.
So with this final quote, we come to a conclusion about how you can obtain wisdom: it is through reflection
A lot of people say that wisdom comes with time, this is because you will have, well, duh, a lot of time to reflect
Based on your experiences in life, your trials and errors, you will form your unique, your particular kind of wisdom
It cannot be given to you, you’ll have to live it. Sure, there’ll be people telling you where to go and what to do
But you are the only one who can decide your fate
Wow that’s deep
