How does it matter?
The necessity of wisdom has been known for ages. Today, the need of wisdom is felt more than ever before! To keep acting on possibilities is the surest way to gain wisdom. A short story will help you understand:
Once, a man was walking along a beach. At a distance, he could see a person going back and forth between the surf’s edge and the beach. He could see hundreds of starfish stranded on the sand as the result of the natural action of the tide.
The man was stuck by the apparent futility of the task. There were far too many starfish. Many of them were sure to perish. As he approached, the person continued the task of picking up starfish one by one and throwing them into the surf.
He said, ‘there are miles of the beach covered with starfish. You can’t possibly make a difference, ‘the person stooped down an picked one more starfish and threw it back into the ocean. He turned back to the man and said, ‘it sure made a difference to that one!’
