The Wisdom of Solomon

by Rabbi Rami M. Shapiro

The empty-hearted are quick to criticize;
a heart filled with understanding values silence. (11:12)

Truth is forever;
falsehood lasts but a moment. (12:19)

Pretending to knowledge reveals your lack of it;
admitting ignorance is the beginning of wisdom. (13:7)

A closed mind causes strife;
an open mind cultivates wisdom. (13:10)

True wisdom is self-understanding;
fools deceive only themselves. (14:8)

A serious mind seeks understanding,
but a fool is satisfied with folly. (15:14)

The way to wisdom is through wonder;
the way to honor is through humility. (15:33)

Intuition is a source . . .
