Wisdom Vs Intelligence

What is Wisdom?!!!

I was reading my philosophy book and in a nutshell, here is what wisdom is about?

During a faculty meeting in the philosophy department, an angel came and told the head of the department to choose from the three blessings of WISDOM, BEAUTY OR MONEY, amounting to $2M.

Without second thought, the head of the philosophy department chose Wisdom.

Abracadadra, the head visibly changed with more wisdom.

The rest of the faculty waited for him to say something.  When he remained quiet, someone asked him how was it?

He said “I wish I chose the money.”

That is wisdom! 🙂 🙂 🙂


  1. Turn your wound into wisdom.
    – Oprah Winfrey

    Oprah has the right idea. Do not just be wounded forever. Do not let your would scar your life. Instead learn from it. Make it work for you.

  2. Knowing others is intelligence, knowing yourself is true wisdom.
    – Laozi

    This is really deep.
    I do agree. Knowing yourself, what you are capable of, what is your limit, how you feel, what is your strength, what is your weekness, what are your ideas, how you connect and see the things around you, will enable you to navigate your path in the world.
