Wisdom is the ability to view every situation as each person who is in any way affected by that situation might view it. Wisdom benefits from having a knowledge of history, and therefore a historical perspective, as well from as having the perspective of imagination - the realm of the what-might-be inhabited by futurists and science-fiction writers.

Love is saying "I feel differently" instead of "You're wrong."

Lao Tzu: He who knows others is wise. He who knows himself is enlightened.
