How Would You Describe Wisdom?

How Would You Describe Wisdom?

By Susan Williams

What exactly is wisdom?

There are many formal definitions of the word and everyone seems to have a view or their own opinion on what it is.

But I did discover one definition of wisdom that I particularly liked;

“Wisdom is the store of knowledge that a society or culture has collected over a long period of time.”

Continuing with this thought, back in 2008 Photographer and Filmaker Andrew Zukerman with the support of Archbishop Desmond Tutu interviewed some of the leading elders of our generation and asked them to describe what they believed wisdom was and/or how it should be applied.

Here are just some of the thoughts that he captured.

Some wise words indeed.
