“Wisdom is learning what to overlook."
— William James
[Classic post from 12-3-11]
I absolutely love this definition of wisdom by William James. I've always known it was discernment and that is easily expressed as a choice in my mind, and as well, learning what to overlook follows in that same way.
The main reason that I love this definition of wisdom is that I've come to believe that having wisdom is equal to love and where love is concerned, I think knowing what to overlook speaks perfectly to this subject.
Love And Wisdom Are Perfectly Aligned
