The Seeds of Wisdom

"The wise are wise only because they love."-Paulo Coelho
Everything we learn, stems from our ability to love. When we are hurt by another, it is our love that drives us to understand why. It is love that raises the question, how are they suffering? How have I contributed to this problem? What could I have done to improve the situation? All of these questions come from love. They come from the ability to love those who have hurt us. Love teaches us wisdom, because love and compassion plant the seed of wisdom. Love leads you to ask the greatest questions and through this, you discover a higher understanding.
