Thoughts on Wealth, Wife, Woman and Wisdom

It is only when rich people are really sick, they understand the impotence of wealth.
--Charles Caleb Colton, Author and Clergyman (1780-1832)

When Adam was lonely, God created for him not ten friends, but one wife.
--Chad Varah, "The Samaritans'

Scent announces a woman's arrival, and delays her departure.
--Coco Chanel

Why does a woman work for ten years to change a man's habits, and then complains that he is not the one that she married.
--Barbara Striesand

Tact is the saving virtue without which no woman can be a success.
--Sir William Osler

With women, the heart argues not the mind.
--Matthew Arnold

It takes thousand workers to build a castle,
Million soldiers to protect a country,
But just one woman to make a Happy Home

Wisdom is clouded by desire, the ever-present enemy of the wise, desire in its innumerable forms, which like a fire cannot find satisfaction.
--Bhagvad Gita (3:39)

Better have wisdom behind you than money.
--Ecclesiastics (7:17)

The first step of wisdom is to know what is false.
--A Latin proverb
Collecting facts is knowledge and implementing that knowledge is wisdom. Education is the means of collecting facts and to know implementing the knowledge. Basically education develops the capacity to differentiate between right and wrong, true and false, good and bad. If it does not do that, then it is useless.

Wisdom is to be able to differentiate between right and wrong.

The only wisdom we can hope to acquire is the wisdom of humility : Humility is endless.
--TS Eliot, poet (1888-1965
