I have nothing new to add but I find Mr. Spock from Star Trek, a brilliant Vulcan mind and a much loved character I might add, has a quite fascinating insight on wisdom, and so I shall quote him.



“Logic is the beginning of wisdom, not the end.”

“Those who cannot hear an angry shout may strain to hear a whisper.”

“It has always been easier to destroy than to create.”

“Logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.”

“Curious how often you humans manage to obtain that which you do not want.”

“Having is not so pleasing a thing, after all, as wanting.”

“Evil does seek to maintain power by suppressing the truth, or by misleading the innocent.”

“Insults are effective only where emotion is present.”

“Insufficient facts always invite danger.”

“Madness has no purpose or reason, but it may have a goal.”

“Pain is a thing of the mind. The mind can be controlled.”

“In critical moments men sometimes see exactly what they wish to see.”

“Change is the essential process of all existence.”

“Where there is no emotion, there is no motive for violence.”

“Humans make illogical decisions.”

“Humans do have an amazing capacity for believing what they choose and excluding that which is painful.”

“I have never understood the female capacity to avoid a direct answer to any question.”

“An ancestor of mine maintained that if you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.”

“To deny the facts would be illogical.”

“Live long and prosper.”



If given the choice, I too would opt for logic versus emotion, for although we possess both, as Mr. Spock points out, humans often make very irrational choices indeed.
