wisdom

Wisdom tells me I am nothing. Love tells me I am everything. Between these two banks the river of my life flows. – Nisargadatta Maharaj

As Paul Graham asked, is it worth it being wise? Do I want to be wise? Is wisdom something worth aspiring towards, or is it something that happens by itself? How do you know when you’re being unwise?
