a poem

Wisdom

Wisdom consists
neither in seeking freedom,
nor in following rules,
but in the artful combination of the two

The wise person chooses constraints
that encourage the maximum development
of beautiful form

Wisdom is knowing when to make rules,
when to break them --
and when to accept the rules of others,
for no one can build a whole universe by themselves --
reality is fundamentally social in nature

Wisdom is complexity
accepting the complexity
of the universe it is embedded in
(More Goertzel)
