#31: How can we get on the fast track to wisdom?

I’m just going to let men far wiser than me to answer this question in tandem:

Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom.

You will find it difficult, if you have taken authority as truth, rather than truth as authority.
Gerald Massey

Believe nothing. No matter where you read it, or who said it — no matter if I have said it — unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.

To think for yourself, you must first question authority.
Timothy Leary

The only true wisdom is in knowing that you know nothing.

Any fool can know. The point is to understand.
Albert Einstein

Think before you speak. Read before you think.
Fran Lebowitz
