Wisdom
 
Of sorrow is born wisdom.
        Mary E. Bradley.—An Easter Egg.
  1
Wisdom ripens into Silence as she grows more truly wise,
And she wears a mellow sadness in her heart and in her eyes;
Wisdom ripens into Silence, and the lesson she doth teach
Is that life is more than language, and that thought is more than speech.
        Samuel Miller Hageman.—Silence.
  2
Wisdom is the abstract of the past, but beauty is the promise of the future.
        Holmes.—The Professor at the Breakfast Table, Chap. II.
