Wisdom is knowing what to do next; Skill is knowing how to do it, and Virtue is doing it. – David Starr Jordan


This quote struck a chord with me!  I believe I could solve the world’s problems if only someone would put me in charge, heh.  Winking smile  But then, would I have the skill to get it done?  Would I have the ability to do it? 

We can all talk a good game, can’t we?  But, as they say, the proof is in the pudding, and in the follow-through. 

Something for me to think about.  Smile  How about you?  Are you as good with the doing as you are with the planning?

  1. I’m not. No two ways about it, I’m a much better evil villain than henchman. I can plan the domination of the world, but actually dominating it is another thing altogether. Filthy humans.

    LOL, Zim! I think we’re good at being in charge. We’ll hire out the heavy lifting part. 😉 LTY!


  2. I’m pretty good at practicing what I preach, I think. You’d better ask my husband – I might be deluded.

    I suspect that you are completely self-honest and self-aware, Spark. 🙂


  3. No. I know what needs to be done, I usually know how to do it, but I sit around and think about it and it never gets done. Obviously I lack virtue.

    Me too! Hey, we can be un-virtuous together! 🙂
