Wisdom is the soundness of judgement. It is the ability to know what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. The ability to know what to say, when to say it and how to say it. Many people make the mistake of thinking that simply because someone is educated s/he is wise. They mistake knowledge for wisdom.

I know of many educated fools. They have very impressive resume's yet they lack the principal thing - wisdom. My late grandmother never went to school. In fact she never got to step into the vicinity of any school. Yet when she spoke many wanted to hear. She advised all. Young and old, men and women, boys and girls. Despite her lack of formal education she had wisdom. She was the greatest influence in my life. she taught everything about life especially integrity and dignity.

Years later after she passed on I sat down to reflect on her legacy. I realized she had taught me the major thing. That is to be a student of life. To seek to learn all you can from life. That life has its upturns and downturns and that neither my crying nor whining will make things better. That just like everyone else I will have to work to eat. Its amazing that in our schools we do not have wisdom as a course or subject yet without it on is lost. Through her wisdom I learnt many invaluable lessons.

I learnt that when you hate someone and you keep a grudge against someone, you hurt your self more emotionally than the person you hate. I also learnt that the greatest thing you can have in life is love. That love opens doors. That with love a parent wins over an impregnated teenager back into her heart and helps rebuild her life. One of the lessons from my grandmother was that the guide in your heart should the peacefulness in your heart whenever you are doing something. If your heart is not peaceful then you are not in agreement with what will be going.

My grandmother taught me that in life not everyone will see meaning and rationale in whatever I will seek to pursue in life. She told me that I will never be able to please everyone at the same time. She told me that I had to remain focused on my goal and not listen to naysayers and discouragers.
