1 Corinthians 3:18-20

February 26, 2017 — Leave a comment

nemo se seducat si quis videtur inter vos sapiens esse in hoc saeculo stultus fiat ut sit sapiens

sapientia enim huius mundi stultitia est apud Deum scriptum est enim conprehendam sapientes in astutia eorum

et iterum Dominus novit cogitationes sapientium quoniam vanae sunt

 

Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you thinks that he is wise in this age, he must become foolish, so that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it is written, “He is THE ONE WHO CATCHES THE WISE IN THEIR CRAFTINESS”; and again, “THE LORD KNOWS THE REASONINGS of the wise, THAT THEY ARE USELESS.”

in sapientia ambulate ad eos qui foris sunt tempus redimentes. sermo vester semper in gratia sale sit conditus ut sciatis quomodo oporteat vos unicuique respondere. (Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity. Let your speech always be with grace, as though seasoned with salt, so that you will know how you should respond to each person.)

Colossians 4:5-6

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

James 1:5

Sometimes the gift of an inquisitive nature to the young can be greater than that of the wisdom which comes of age.

Brian Jacques, Mattimeo

Affliction is often that thing which prepares an ordinary person for some sort of an extraordinary destiny.

C.S. Lewis

audiens sapiens sapientior erit et intellegens gubernacula possidebit (A wise man shall hear, and shall be wiser: and he that understandeth shall possess governments.)

Proverbs 1:5,  Latin Vulgate Bible

In governing, don’t try to control. In work, do what you enjoy. In family, be completely present. When you are content to simply be yourself and don’t compare or compete, everybody will respect you.

Lao Tzu, Laozi, 老子
