Through wisdom we can rise above the pettiness and disappointments of everyday life. Through wisdom and faith we can find our place in the universe and our reason for being. Wisdom puts meaning into our lives and frees us from the emptiness of a life spent searching for wealth, power or status.
If everyone lived their lives with wisdom, there would be no wars, no crime, no starvation and no atrocities in the world. Unfortunately, most people will not choose the way of wisdom for their lives. However, each person who tries to follow wisdom's path makes the world a little bit better and finds his or her personal fulfillment along the way.
