    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!"

    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...

    Wisdom

    I like people who actually think. I don't want to talk to someone who says the first thing that comes to their head. I want someone to think about what I say and respond with something that will actually make me wonder. Now a days people don't seem to give a **** about what they...

    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...
