Wisdom is not held in reserve for a sharp select few.
Becoming wise requires self-discipline to learn and respectfully seek out wisdom at every chance.
Wisdom teaches you how to live life. It combines understanding with discipline.
Wisdom also adds a healthy dose of common sense – except that common sense isn’t and never has been common.
To become wise – you must learn to listen.
Wisdom is freely available to those who will stop talking and start paying attention – to God and his word, to parents, and counselors.
Taken from the Student Bible
Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid.
From the fruit of his lips a man is filled with good things, as surely as the work of his hands rewards him.
A fool shows his annoyance at once, but a prudent man overlooks an insult.
Reckless words pierce like a sword, but the tongue of the wise brings healing.
The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in men who are truthful.
