There are two kinds of people who live under the great influence of others’ words and comments:
First, those who are deeply troubled and vexed by unpleasant remarks and negative comments, and
Second, those who probe into the layers of meanings in others’ words and comments.
The former are pitiful wretches whose lives are in the command of karma.
The latter are people who transcend beyond the world of life and death.
Once one makes a resolute decision about what to do
After calculating and weighing all the situations in his/her mind,
Even when he/she realizes that he/she makes some mistakes,
He/she will by all means try to conceal his/her mistakes
By finding as many justifiable excuses as possible.
Knowledge comes from the accumulation of experiences.
Wisdom is the application of knowledge.
In addition, it is revealed by outstanding speech and deeds given or done to
the right person at the right moment and place in the right circumstances.
Therefore, the more experiences and broader knowledge one has
The higher wisdom one gains.
