Something less hot than hatred then. Wisdom. What do you find wisdom in? I don’t mean people as people change a lot, and while it may be interesting to hear who you find wise I doubt too many of us would be able to identify with the majority of them. Instead what ideals do you find wisdom to lie in? I think this should be interesting as each person tends to read into wisdom what they themselves lack.

For me I find wisdom in being able to say things in such a way as people completely understand your meaning; not being extraordinarily clever, but expressing what everyone already knows and just cant find the words to express. Empathy is also part of where I think wisdom comes from; I've never been able to properly understand peoples' feelings, so I suppose I find that desirable more than most people would.

So what do you find wisdom in?

well, whenever I think of wisdom I always think of really old wizards like Gandalf from LOTR. I seriously don't know why, but that's the kind of person I think of wise, one who knows much about anything, and who knows how to handle most situations. I believe that you grow wiser with age. Wisdom for me is.. well, basically, life experience or deep insight.

Emapthy definately. I also find wisdom in those around me. I actually never thought about that, a person's meaning not being, but then doesnt your being equate your meaning in life? Oh boy dont get me started on philisophical disscussions this late at night.

Knowing the flaws of society and voicing my opinion, along with seeing beyond the lies and bull that the government puts out. I see flaws, predict flaws, and i say what should be done to help society. People need help, desperately.

Most people are idiots and that is why we need people who can understand things to run the countries.

I have some sixth sense in me and i often say the same thing as someone else at the same time and can see or hear stuff before it happens.

I don't care what people will say about my post, but if you had true wisdom, you would know what i was saying.

After all i am the lost prophet.

I find wisdom as being able to accept the fact that you know nothing. I also see it neccessary for a a wise person to command a extraordinary presence, or intimidation if you will. When i think of wise people I think of people who, when you meet them, you get the impression that they are better than you, and have a deeper understanding of everything, especially seeing things from different perspectives.

Hey lost prophet guy, explain more about your "sixth sense", i dont know what to make of it yet

For me, wisdom and truth are interchangeable words. No one is wise because no one knows the whole truth ('cept God).

i find wisdom in the soul. those who are wisest are modest and know for fact that they know nothing, some people just don't get it, the rest would take forever for me t put into words, but it's written down on a piece of paper somewhere in my room...
