  1. I like your quote but I'm curious, what does that statement mean to you?

    I might argue that wisdom is applying knowledge to situation (sort of following the DIKW hierarchy. (Data, Information, Knowledge and Wisdom)

    in my definition of wisdom, simplification of knowledge is part of wisdom, but wisdom implies the use of knowledge to make the right decisions. I think that making use of knowledge is critical to the understanding of wisdom, So I'm curious what simplification means to you.

    Thanks for your thoughts. I do enjoy reading your blog
