How to Acquire Wisdom?

“Wisdom is not a product of schooling but of the lifelong attempt to acquire it” - Albert Einstein

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: first, by reflection, which is noblest; second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third, by experience, which is the most bitter.” - Confucius

“The key to wisdom is knowing all the right questions.” - John A. Simone, Sr.

"To acquire knowledge, one must study; but to acquire wisdom, one must observe." - Marilyn vos Savant

“A man only becomes wise when he begins to calculate the approximate depth of his ignorance.” - Gian Carlo Menotti

“The next best thing to being wise oneself is to live in a circle of those who are” - C.S. Lewis

"Understanding is the foundation of wisdom and wisdom is acquired from experiences and lessons understood. A primary way to acquire wisdom is to seek the company of those who have it!."

Each day is a new beginning and another opportunity for learning, growth and increased wisdom for you and me.
