Chapter 1 – Note 2 | Annoying

 

You must first seek wisdom and then understand it so you can appropriate it into your life. Make it part and parcel of your very being. Make your behavior indistinguishable from the actual wisdom itself.

Depending on your particular philosophical or spiritual bent, you may simply seek the truth of wisdom at its very essence, or inquire of the author of that particular truth, living or dead.

Understanding it will save you a lot of heartache and grief, but only if you have made it your own – before applying knowledge.
