Knowledge is power. Wisdom; a gift.

Long awaited, hard won, scarcely used.

Bestowed only when your age guarantees

That it will be applied judicially,

When necessary, with compassion, for good.

Wisdom, like memories, is for those

who have treasured life; well lived.

Have some wisdom to share?  Visit Melissa at Making Things Up and try your hand at Six Word Fridays!


  1. Wisdom: the badge of life well-lived.
    Seems just right to me.

  2. I like the distinction you make between knowledge and wisdom. There is a big difference!

  3. Nice, Maria! Deep thoughts for a Friday!

  4. I love how you distinguish between wisdom and knowledge. When I thought about posting on this one, I was toying with the idea of the difference between intelligence and wisdom. See? What is that saying about smart minds think alike? Lord, help's too early in the morning on a Saturday to remember an expression! ;)

  5. You're right--wisdom and knowledge *are* different. Never really thought about it that way before!


Tell me what you think...
