i remember this question " what is the diffrence between Wisdom and knowledge ?

can u answer that ? :?:

Maybe,
I remember a story about an Indian Chief's son wanting to become a man. The son asked his father "how do I become a man"? The father said "practice". The boy asked "what do I practice on "? The father showed him a tree with a hole in it and said "practice on the tree". The boy went over to the tree and started to practice. Next thing you know the boy was rolling around on the ground saying that he didn't want to practice anymore. The father just laughed and went on with his day. Some time later the boy asked his father "how do I become a man"? "Practice"he stated. "I don't want to practice" said the boy. "Come on we will go to a different tree" the chief said. The boy agreed and the same thing happened again. As time went by the boy was starting to take interest in a girl.
He told his father that he was ready to become a man and he wanted to marry the girl. The father gave them his blessings and sent them on their way. On the wedding night after all of the celebrating, the boy was ready to see if the practice would pay off. He grabbed a stick and put it in her and started to move it around. She screamed "what are you doing "?! He said"checkin for BEES"
This may show wisdom through knowledge, not sure though. Haha

Knowledge is something you can get from a book, wisdom isn't...

sometime i wonder ... is it bad to be good or is it good to be bad?
Some may take you for a foul if you're good with them and help them more time ... they'll try to abuse your kindness ... and in this kind of situations, i siwtch to ignore mode.
Did you have this kind of situations when someone only tried to benefit from you? If so, what you did?

here's a song by Baz Lurman....


If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable than my own meandering experience. I will dispense this advice now.

Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded. But trust me, in 20 years you'll look back at photos of yourself and recall in a way you can't grasp now how much possibility lay before you and how fabulous you really looked.

You are not as fat as you imagine.

Don't worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm on some idle Tuesday.

Do one thing everyday that scares you, Sing.

Don't be reckless with other peoples hearts, don't put up with people
who are reckless with yours.

Floss.

Don't waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you're ahead, sometimes you're behind, the race is long, and in the end, its only with yourself. Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you succeed in doing this, tell me how. Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.

Stretch.

Don't feel guilty if you don't know what you want to do with your life the most interesting people I know didn't know at 22 what they wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year olds I know still don't.

Get plenty of calcium.

Be kind to your knees, you'll miss them when they're gone.

Maybe you'll marry, maybe you wont, maybe you'll have children, maybe you won't, maybe you'll divorce at 40, maybe you'll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary. What ever you do, don't congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either your choices are half chance, so are everybody else.

Enjoy your body, use it every way you can don't be afraid of it, or what other people think of it, its the greatest instrument you will ever own…

Dance. Even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.

Read the directions, even if you don't follow them. Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly. Get to know your parents, you never know when they'll be gone for good. Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the people most likely to stick with you in the future.

Understand that friends come and go, but for the precious few you should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography in lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you knew when you were young.

Live in New York once, but leave before it makes you hard; live in California once, but leave before it makes you soft.

Travel.

Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will philander, you too will get old,
and when you do you'll fantasize that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were noble and children respected their elders.

Respect your elders.

Don't expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund, maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one might run out. Don't mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will look 85.

Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than its worth.

But trust me on the sunscreen.

this 1 is tricky ... confuses me hehehe ..


You could read it at least two ways:

1) You can't get to he top on your own

2) Until you have helped make everyone else all that THEY can be, you cannot be all that YOU can be.

When it was said, it implied the second meaning above. It's practically impossible but it does ring true.

A theory is considered scientifically correct if real life observations when viewed through that theory , validate the theory rather than leaving believers of theory confused and surprised. Same
is true with the philosophy.

I believe that most of what we get in life is a matter of chance . So I don't get surprised by even and odds in my and everybody else's life.

I do not deny free will, but how much free is ' free will' ? For an average person, if you compare things within his control to the things which are beyond control , you may find that things beyond control considerably outweigh things within control. You have little control on the society and family in which you are born. No doubt there are examples of 'rags to riches' and vice versa , but these are more of exceptions than rule.

Just when I thought there wasn't room enough
for another thought in my head, I had this great idea--
call it a philosophy of life, if you will. Briefly,
it involved living the way philosophers live,
according to a set of principles. OK, but which ones?

That was the hardest part, I admit, but I had a
kind of dark foreknowledge of what it would be like.
Everything, from eating watermelon or going to the bathroom
or just standing on a subway platform, lost in thought
for a few minutes, or worrying about rain forests,
would be affected, or more precisely, inflected
by my new attitude. I wouldn't be preachy,
or worry about children and old people, except
in the general way prescribed by our clockwork universe.
Instead I'd sort of let things be what they are
while injecting them with the serum of the new moral climate
I thought I'd stumbled into, as a stranger
accidentally presses against a panel and a bookcase slides back,
revealing a winding staircase with greenish light
somewhere down below, and he automatically steps inside
and the bookcase slides shut, as is customary on such occasions.
At once a fragrance overwhelms him--not saffron, not lavender,
but something in between. He thinks of cushions, like the one
his uncle's Boston bull terrier used to lie on watching him
quizzically, pointed ear-tips folded over. And then the great rush
is on. Not a single idea emerges from it. It's enough
to disgust you with thought. But then you remember something
William James
wrote in some book of his you never read--it was fine, it had the
fineness,
the powder of life dusted over it, by chance, of course, yet
still looking
for evidence of fingerprints. Someone had handled it
even before he formulated it, though the thought was his and
his alone.

I believe you can only control your attitude for the moment.

Each moment I have the choice on how I will let whatever is going on affect me. My goal is to try and be true to myself with every choice I make so there are no regrets. Being true to myself is defined by my convictions: moral, spiritual, etc.

When I start to get mad at an injustice or a traffic jam, I count my blessings. I find that every traffic jam is an opportunity for a great conversation or turn up my radio and do a little seat dancing. Yeah, that's right - I am the goofy person at the traffic light :-) but I am having fun and my bp is good.

That's a philosophy isn't it?

Chances are you don't know enough about someone else to accurately judge them - so you shouldn't.

Chances are there is something that you can do to help in most cases - so you should.

It is possible to be considerate and helpful without being taken advantage of - but it isn't necessarily easy.

Everything is black or white.
It is only when you filter what white you let through that you get grey.

If agnostics/atheists are correct, I will die satisfied about this life.
If they are wrong, they will not.

Whoever says it is better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all, didn't.
