The saddest aspect of life right now is that science gathers knowledge faster than society gathers wisdom
– Isaac Asimov (author and biochemist, 1920-1992)
This quote spoke to me because of how true it is to heart. People use knowledge as wisdom which is not the case. Wisdom is the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment the quality of being wise. Wisdom come with age and is earned not learned and people are gaining the knowledge way faster than when they would gain wisdom from trial and error. Because of technology this has advanced the modern image as something more futuristic and I believe that we should go do some more trail and error to gain wisdom before we do something we may regret.
