Joan Chittister, Benedictine nun and author wrote,
“Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge? Knowledge gives us information. Wisdom gives us light on the way. Knowledge is skill. Wisdom is a quality. Knowledge can be learned. Wisdom can only be distilled from those places in life where knowledge is not enough to really explain what was happening to us, or information failed to resolve what was happening to the other.”
The Way of Wisdom is a long and continuing journey. We learn much wisdom on our own. And then there is wisdom we can only learn from someone else.
“But wisdom is shown to be right by the lives of those who follow it.” Jesus
