February 2014: Wisdom

February 2014

 

Wisdom

Our attribute for this month is wisdom. Wisdom is typically an attribute that denotes maturity and poise. Being wise doesn’t necessarily mean being the smartest person. Being wise means that you have used your intellect, as well as your understanding and life experiences to have a different perspective than those who are unwise. Virtually all of our American heroes, both past and present, were wise and used their wisdom to make our country great.

Attribute Quote

“Before we acquire great power, we must acquire wisdom to use it well.
