What makes a man wise?



Experience?
In the basest sense, of course. We are naught but products of accumulated experiences. But experience alone does not produce wisdom.
How many old men have a lifetime of experience, yet still remain fools?
Or is wisdom not something quantifiable? For even the fool may spout gems of wisdom, and self proclaimed wise men foolishness.

So what is the essence of wisdom? The application of experience weighed against attained knowledge? Simple observation of this world of men and mystery and magnificence, and the melding of these into digestible nuggets of concentrated of sage words?

re: What makes a man wise?


I'm no wise man. I never claimed to be.

And I'm dealing with it all pretty decently, considering.

But let's stay on topic.

re: What makes a man wise?


shite you come with some shite to think about in the middle of the night.

I say experience, wisdom, knowledge, all make a man wise.

this is not directed at you FR33 just a general observation on life

in the wise words of a friends father---"you are a grown arse man start acting like one" whatever that means to you may not be the same for someone else figure it out before life passes you by and you are left on the side of the road with a little sign saying any help would be appreciated.

The ability to admit what he doesn't know and finding joy in the lifelong eradication of his ignorance.

Fr33, are you a stoner? Some of these threads you come up with sound like the things that people think of when they're baked

It is only in the comprehension of the incomprehensibility of all knowledge that one may be said to approach true wisdom.

My dad gave me the best piece if advice when I was 17. "Don't frick up your life, put a scabbard on it". I thought that was pretty wise.

No, I'm not. I just like to ponder. To get to the very essence of the questions that many take for granted.

Why do stoners get to have a monopoly on interesting questions?

I'm not asking "man, how big are your, like, hands?"

I believe that a wise man is someone who doesn't change face or character in any situation. Consistency and steadfastness-usually a sign of a pretty wise man

Having people call him wise is what makes him wise. Nothing more and nothing less.

Was never question of that. Plenty of wise men or women have been wrong. Just all the men I have ever met are ones that are always themselves... Usually those guys and gals are articulate,have patience and are kind but I would be naive to think those traits are prerequisites.

his twig and berries he has swinging between his leg, or at least thats what I'm assuming since women don't have one (at least some don't) and we all know men are wiser than women so it has to be

his twig and berries. the father they hang the wiser the man.

or he has worn boxers his whole life and gravity has taken affect.

Proverbs 19:20

quote:

20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.


Proverbs 10:19

quote:

When words are many, sin is not absent, but he who holds his tongue is wise.


Proverbs 11:2

quote:

When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.


Proverbs 29:15

quote:

To discipline a child produces wisdom, but a mother is disgraced by an undisciplined child.


And my favorite one...

Ecclesiastes 10:2

quote:

The heart of the wise inclines to the right, but the heart of the fool to the left.


Really and truly, just read the book of Proverbs and you'll learn what wisdom is. Listen more than you speak, accept teaching and discipline. But when you do speak, don't speak too much or falsely. And be humble.
