Motivational Quote - Wisdom is not wisdom when it is derived from books alone.

SparkPeople's Comments

We learn so much in school. Some of us spend years and years attaining degrees to land their dream jobs. That’s great. It takes a lot of willpower and commitment to achieve all of this. But, remember that you are learning each and everyday. And it might not be just from something you read. Other people hold a wealth of knowledge, and this can be picked up whether through conversation, observation of behavior, or otherwise. There is a proverb that goes something along the lines of the following: a single conversation across the table with a wise man is worth a month’s study of books. Make sure you are learning in school, but make sure you are learning outside of the classroom as well.

There are many book smart people in our world
But do they have common sense to cope with everyday living
One day at a time
Love Prayers Peace
