    I'm thinking that having to be in the know or thinking you are is dangerous to your health.
    What say you?

    In the end our knowledge is going to kill humanity.

    And, ironically, we won't know if it's because we have too much or too little.

    depends on what it is and how you deal with your anger, whether you are a troubled or healthy individual, do you act on impulse or think things through, are you patient or impatient... perhaps also are you happy or unhappy etc

    ps. I also prefer to call it knowledge not wisdom... wisdom is an arrogant word based on the presumption you know more than others... it should be a pursuit of knowledge that never ends

    No secret there: Ignorance is bliss.

    Ecclesiastes 1:18
    For with much wisdom comes much sorrow,
    and as knowledge grows, grief increases.

    OTOH,

    Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has. - Margaret Mead
