Wise in someone’s eyes

The wise person seems a notch above everyone else. They are the philosophers who theorize about what life is about. They think thoughts too lofty for everyone else. So, the ordinary person sneers at them and calls their wisdom wise men’s jive, as if they aren’t as intelligent as they seem. Their wisdom is jive, jive being worthless to everyday living.

Being wise is despised. It’s also admired.  But true wisdom is found in not being wise in your own eyes or in the eyes of others, it is in being ‘unwise’. In being unwise you are bound to pay more attention to the details of things that need attending to, rather than cut corners because you think one’s way is the right way, but you would have ended up with a mistake.
