Unknowable wisdom

June 3, 2018

Wisdom is the defense of things, the diagnosis of them. It’s the grasp of truth, and the command to govern matters in the light of it. It is decision and judgment, counsel and agility. It is vision and hard work, diligence and efficiency. It is beauty and appeal, relevance and meaning. It is health and prosperity, sacrifice and humility. It is life, eternity. All in all it is a deep and unknowable thing. The man who searches for it and finds it is truly blessed. And this is the key to it: the fear of God.

(My beloved, this one’s dedicated to you!)
