Wisdom is rare. Wisdom is incurable. Some people just like these teeth are wise but ostracised due to ignorance and misunderstanding…
Phrases on the background:
  • Incertus animus dimidium sapientiae est (A mind that doubts is halfway to wisdom)
  • Sapere aude! (Dare to think for yourself!)
  • Sapientia ars vivendi putanda est (Wisdom is to be considered the art of living)
