Do you want to be a wise person? I certainly do, and I believe you do too. Being wise is different from just being smart though. Here is a definition of wise from Dictionary.com: having the power of discerning and judging properly as to what is true or right; possessing discernment, judgment, or discretion. And, to complement that, here is Wikipedia’s definition of wisdom: Wisdom is a deep understanding and realization of people, things, events or situations, resulting in the ability to apply perceptions, judgments and actions in keeping with this understanding. As a comparison, here is a definition of smart from Dictionary.com: having or showing quick intelligence or ready mental capability.
