Wisdom-Trek / Creating a Legacy
Welcome to Day 625 of our Wisdom-Trek, and thank you for joining me.
This is Guthrie Chamberlain, Your Guide to Wisdom
The Wisest Mind – Wisdom Unplugged
Thank you for joining us for our 5 days per week wisdom and legacy building podcast. This is Day 625 of our trek, and it is time for a 3-minute mini-trek called Wisdom Unplugged. This short nugget of wisdom includes an inspirational quote with a little additional content for today’s trek. Consider this your vitamin supplement of wisdom for today. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget.
Today’s quote is from George Santayana who said, “The wisest mind has something yet to learn.”
If you ever reach the point where you think you know it all or that you have reached the pinnacle of wisdom, then it is time to rethink. The wisest of people realize that there is so much wisdom yet to be gained. We have discussed on past treks that there is a distinct difference between gaining knowledge and gaining wisdom. A wise person is always seeking to learn, to gain knowledge, and to gain wisdom. That is a distinct attribute of a wise person. A person who does not desire to learn, to gain knowledge, and to gain wisdom is actually a fool.
Another distinct sign of a wise person is that they are not afraid to be corrected when they are wrong. They take personal responsibility and are willing to accept discipline and correction so they can gain additional wisdom, insight, and understanding.
Proverbs is referred to as the book of wisdom and has much to teach us. Here are three verses that reinforce today’s wisdom nugget.
Proverbs 9:9 – Instruct the wise, and they will be even wiser. Teach the righteous, and they will learn even more.
Proverbs 15:5 – Only a fool despises a parent’s discipline; whoever learns from correction is wise.
Proverbs 19:25 – If you punish a mocker, the simpleminded will learn a lesson; if you correct the wise, they will be all the wiser.
That’s a wrap for today’s Wisdom Unplugged. If you enjoy these quotes, I have created and published a searchable database of over 10,000 quotes that I have collected for many years. If you would like free access to my database of inspirational quotes, the link is available on the main page of Wisdom-Trek.com.
