Wisdom #2

Wisdom is a little voice you hear that says, "Wait a minute," just as you are about to react the same old way to a familiar stimulus. If you listen, and if you pause to examine, and if you question, and if you force yourself to consider what you are about to do, and if you honestly examine whether what you are about to do is still relevant and appropriate, then you have heard the voice of wisdom.

William's Whimsical Words:

Courage is the strength you find within that allows you to change your behavior when you have heard the voice of wisdom.
