"By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.” ~ Confucius.
Young adults systematically learn musical instruments, math, martial arts, and many other skills and subjects. Why not wisdom? I reject the idea that only the old can be wise, and that wisdom is acquired only through trial and error.
I divide wisdom into three major areas:
- Logic and math
- Experience, as encapsulated in proverbs, sayings, quotations and concepts
The Wisdom Course section of this website has eight lessons covering all three areas. The Logic & Math, Experience and Intuition sections contain supplemental course material. Also, the Proverbs (subsection of Experience) and 2x2 Matrices (subsection of Logic & Math) sections are useful by themselves.
Note to the Users of the Original LifeWisdom.com Website:
The Experience section now contains the listing of proverbs by category. Click on Experience, then Proverbs.
