Love that Quotation- thank you :-)

It also triggers a thought about ideas, and their place in the scheme of things. Tomorrow’s post :-)

We are awash with information but in the modern world we are experiencing a 'wisdom famine' as John Vervaeke puts it. Perhaps intelligence paired with affordance goes some way to equating to wisdom?

I enjoyed the synchronicity of seeing your Howard Gardner reference as only yesterday I dug out his 'Frames of Mind' from my bookshelf for a re-read in prep for a presentation I'm doing on how we struggle to communicate and understand each other.

I thought I'd also share one of may favourite playful Frank Zappa quotes:

"Information is not knowledge.

Knowledge is not wisdom.

Wisdom is not truth.

Truth is not beauty.

Beauty is not love.

Love is not music.

Music is the best."
