“Wisdom does not consist in gathering information.
… That which enshrouds our vision is ignorance. The way out of it is through wisdom. Wisdom is that which keeps us from blundering. It is like carrying a light. We can all unfold it. It rests with us whether we will walk in darkness or whether we will kindle the torch of wisdom in our mind and heart and walk by its light.”
At a time when fear and other dark emotions are making us see danger where there is none, while preventing us to see danger where it actually lies, we need to regain some wisdom if we wish to survive both individually and collectively.
