#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
