The Wisdom of the Wind

Posted in One minute unlearning, Parable, Uncategorized, Wisdom

“How do you define wisdom,” asked the boy.

“It is like harnessing the wind,” replied the old man.

“What do mean?”

“The wind can extinguish a candle or fuel a fire.”

“So it’s all about applying things in the right dose,” said the boy.

“Oh, it’s far more subtle that,” continued the old man. “It’s as much about knowing when not to apply it.”

“I don’t understand,” said the boy.

“Sometimes you want the candle to keep burning and a fire not to be fueled.”
