Of Life and Wisdom

Life is the splendor of experience and its awful brevity, gathering all we are into one profound effort to see, to love, to achieve, to understand, we shall have time enough to live. It is Life itself that has the first and last claim upon each of us, and it is the fresh light and clear air that wisdom brings to life that answers it. To love, to strive, to seek to know, to attend to the best that has been thought, said and done in the world, and to learn from it, is wisdom: and wisdom is life for man on this earth. How long will we wait to be wise?
