“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.” – The Serenity Prayer (Reinhold Niebuhr)
There is profound truth to the notion that it is only through our own experience that we gain wisdom.
Wisdom can be learned, or gained. Wisdom is built upon the foundation of knowledge and understanding, but it is much more than the sum of these two concepts. It involves something intangible, something which cannot be gained through knowledge and understanding alone.
