We often think of wisdom as something reserved only for the elderly or educated and gained through life experience, however wisdom has a depth and nuance that can be fostered by considering perspective in relation to knowledge. This age-old saying sums it up well: 'Knowledge is knowing what to say. Wisdom is knowing when to say it.'
The Little Book of Wisdom offers guidance from some of the world's greatest minds in the art of making wise decisions that keep your immediate needs in mind, while maintain long-term perspective. As you'll soon discover, a little wisdom can go a long way in supporting choices you make in all aspects of your life.
