MAKE US WISE
One thing nice about a good quote
is that quite often we may turn it
around and discover it still makes
good sense, and it may even lead
us to other new, good ideas.
For instance, this thought by John Masefield...
"The days that make us happy make us wise."
Certainly there is much truth in that statement.
But, we'd like to think there was an even greater
truth in the following alteration...
The days that make us wise make us happy.
As children we seek happiness and thereby gain
wisdom in the failures and successes of our quest.
Then, as we grow older, we discover that happiness
comes in the finding of wisdom, and of living in the
wisdom that we find.
