Eight Characteristics of Wisdom

James 3:17

But the wisdom that is from above is first
pure, then peaceable, gentle,
willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits,
without partiality and without hypocrisy

As we grow in wisdom, we pardon more freely
- Madame de Stael

Wisdom is knowing what to do next;
Skill is knowing how to do it, and Virtue is doing it
- David Starr Jordan

Be still today, and search for wisdom, which is not so much found in what we know, but how we deal with what we know...that's how I see it.


So...wisdom is:
Pure
Peaceable
Gentle
Willing to yield
Full of mercy
Full of good fruits
Without partiality
Without hypocrisy
