ON WE GO! – March 14, 2018

Wisdom material represents the gathered learning of a society through the ages, and is largely concerned to offer guidance about ‘how best to live.’ Many cultures and religious traditions are rich with wisdom material, with the Old Testament book of Proverbs being a particularly notable example. While classical wisdom nuggets are found in such texts, here are a few items from my recent experience:
- Do not let anyone pop your earmuffs when they are on your head.
- Knives cut best when you use the sharp side.
- Be careful what you say. The same word may mean two opposite things (e.g., sanction, oversight), and be interpreted completely different from what you intended.
- Dropping your iPhone down Giddings Hall stairway does not make for a healthy iPhone.
- Do not take a shower with a bee!
