There is wisdom in knowing when to join the crowd and when not to. None of us should mistake having an independent thought as though it has no possibility of becoming an independent foolishness.
There is wisdom in knowing when to speak and when not to speak. None of us should mistake the fact that they say ‘silence is golden’ as though it has no possibility of becoming ‘silence is plywood’ when applied at the wrong time.
There is wisdom in reading wise words, but none of us should forget that it is not about reading, it is about applying them.
