“Do not ask for fulfillment in all your life, but for patience to accept frustration.
Do not ask for perfection in all you do, but for the wisdom not to repeat mistakes.
Do not ask for more, before saying “Thank You” for what you have already received.”—Brenda Short (via kari-shma)
“And I don’t, don’t, don’t get the hate. Self hate, women hate, body hate, stranger hate. That seems so exhausting. I like me. I like you. I like you, even if I don’t know you. I like you until I have a reason not to. And then I’ll probably still like you and try to view your meanness through the lens of your experiences. I try. Some people really work at making it hard. I don’t think it’s naive, though I’ve heard that before. I just think it’s a better way to be.”—bruiseoftheweek (via marythedaring)
So I know many of you think those Asian girls I mentioned in my previous post are attractive. I think all those surgeries and/or layers of make up definitely help with aesthetics, but that begs the question of whether or not you find the idea of being “fake” attractive. In other words, would you feel like it’s false advertising for a girl to wear that much make up? And is it any different if they had surgery done (eyes, boobs, anything)?
that Nancy Grace is an anchor on Fox News. that Nancy Grace epitomizes the stereotypical rude American bitch. that a lot of Asians (in Asia) put on a shit ton of make up to make themselves look completely different. that not only do Asians get eyelid surgery, but also get surgery to make the part under their eyes more puffy so they always look like they’re begging for something. that my former roommate had a hobo break into her house over winter break. He apparently slept there and ate some of their food.
By definition, the two are very similar words associated with learning from experience. The subtle difference between the two is why oxymora (yes, that’s the plural form of oxymoron) such as “dumb genius” exist. Intelligence is the result of knowledge. Knowledge comes from making yourself familiar with facts or truths from study or investigation. By definition, knowledge only extends to awareness of facts and truths.
When you go beyond knowledge, it’s called wisdom. Wisdom is the thoughtful side of knowledge; it is the application of knowledge in a certain way. Wisdom is closely related to judgment as it often defines what is right and provides the argument and justification for most decisions. In the most condensed form, one could argue that knowledge is objective while wisdom is subjective.
I believe that both are necessities in the life of any individual. Knowledge is awareness and is required to see the world. Wisdom is living and is needed to see the true beauty in the world or in other words, get the most out of life. To me, it seems that having one without the other will never be truly fulfilling.
Your experience won’t be the same as mine and there’s no way we’ll interpret it in exactly the same way. Everyone learns and sees the world differently, so you can never compare your own unique experiences with anyone else. You only live once.
