    A Professor

    holds up a matchbook. He asks the class what it is. "A matchbook!" immediate response. "Wrong!" he says. That is only a sound. "Now, what is it?" No one knows, so he throws it at them. "That's what it is!"

    Good To Talk To

      These folks make life interesting.  There are not many other people more fascinating than those who have had major life experiences and can share them with you since they gained significant wisdom.  Kind of a "Don't do this" sort of thing.  At 41, I've experienced some of...

    It seems i only had a glimpse of the truth. I got the chance to meet few spiritually advanced people today. The whole experience has left me flabbergasted. Got some insights into after-life and our spirituality levels. They say situations and people come into our lives for a...

    And I don't separate this into graduates

    or not. Anyone with a keen interest and a good memory can get a degree. Wise is being able to use these facts for betterment in any area. No wonder why "wise old men (rather sexist though!)" are revered!

    Wise Men

    People with wisdom can be such a hard thing to find, they inspire, give people hope, lead them and can give them an ideal to strive for. I'm not saying that a person of wisdom is the rich religious/philosophical person or someone who's perfect, in fact someone with wisdom...
