WISDOM OR OPINION

Once Plato and Lao-Tzu had their own blog Since their philosophies thought mighty strong Expected people much to read With wisdom themselves to feed But readers chose instead opinion's fog! © Demetrios Trifiatis 03 FEBRUARY 2015

- Dear Demetrios, often it is neither wisdom or opinion - we choose a solution or answer that is neither positive or negative - or close our eyes to the truth - A great poem ! - hug // Anne-Lise :)

Between wisdom and opinion we find knowledge! It is impossible for us to find something that is neither positive not negative if we do not possess the necessary knowledge to judge! Opinion therefore without knowledge is worthless and dangerous! Thank you for your visit and constructive comment, dear Anne-Lise!
