Wisdom

Wisdom is the finest beauty of a person.

Money does not prevent you from becoming blind.

Money does not prevent you from becoming mad.

Money does not prevent you from becoming lame.

You may be ill in any part of your body, so it is better for you to go and think again and to select wisdom.

Come and sacrifice, that you may have rest in your body,

inside and outside.

~ Traditional African

The preceding passage can be found in “An African Prayer Book” by Desmond Tutu.
