Wisdom is to live with what you’ve asked for in life, and to rest with what you’ve decided upon.
We don’t call someone a fool if they sought riches, or power, or fame, or any such good in the eyes of the many, but only if they achieved them, and then died to that end, either in flesh or in spirit, overwhelmed by the consequences thereof.
But those who have eschewed the good of the many, to attain the good of the few, namely, virtue, or the knowledge thereof, we may listen, and heed their words, but for a peculiar kind of asceticism, they have denied life in their own right, to the gain of no one.
So that wisdom consists of knowing what to ask for in life, and being able to live with what one has sought.
So that we can say, Wisdom is Prayer.
