Perspective (wisdom)

Perspective [wisdom]: Being able to provide wise counsel to others; having ways of looking at the world that make sense to oneself and to other people (Source: VIA Institue)



The Noel Strengths Academy defines it this way:

 A person with perspective is perceived as being wise 

•  Able to get inside someone else’s point of view 

•  Insightful beyond the facts 

•  Able to give sound guidance  

•  Can explain the reasons why in a way that makes sense to oneself and other people 



An excellent essay on Wisdom.

  • “Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning.” ~ Albert Einstein
  • “Wisdom is knowing what to do next; Skill is knowing how to do it, and Virtue is doing it.” ~ David Starr Jordan
  • “One’s first step in wisdom is to question everything—and one’s last is to come to terms with everything.” ~ Georg C. Lichtenberg
