Intelligence and Wisdom

God give me the strength to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

Sharing a forward this time, source unknown. The subtle differences between intelligence and wisdom.

Intelligence leads to arguments.
Wisdom leads to settlements.

Intelligence is power of will.
Wisdom is power OVER  will.

Intelligence is heat, it burns.
Wisdom is warmth, it comforts.

Intelligence is pursuit of knowledge, it tires the seeker.
Wisdom is pursuit of truth, it inspires the seeker.

Intelligence is holding on.
Wisdom is letting go.

Intelligence leads you.
Wisdom guides you.

Intelligence knows everything.
Wisdom knows that there is still something to learn.

Intelligence always tries to prove his point.
Wisdom knows there really is no point.

Intelligence freely gives unsolicited advice.
Wisdom keeps his counsel until all options are considered.

Intelligence understands what is being said.
Wisdom understands what is left unsaid.

Intelligence speaks to say something.
Wisdom speaks when there is something to say.

Intelligence sees  everything as relative.
Wisdom sees everything as related.

Intelligence tries to control the mass flow.
Wisdom navigates the mass flow.

Intelligence preaches.
Wisdom reaches.

These days when phones are smart and devices are intelligent, being wise seems to be a good choice 🙂🙂
