The seminar today on wisdom was immensely enjoyable. In my preparation, I came across many qualities associated with being wise. These included having experience, knowledge, good judgement, compassion and morality.
However, from the discussion today, I have learnt that the significance of reflection cannot be downplayed. Confucious also labelled it the noblest way to increase wisdom. Indeed, if we think about it, having a lot of experience and knowledge will not make you wise unless you reflect. Hence, one must never pass up an opportunity to reflect and become a little wiser during the process.
"By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third, by experience, which is the bitterest"- Confucious.
