Wisdom IS discerned truth. The main reason I have come to publish this article was to dispel a statement spoken by someone else. The quote "Wisdom doesn't necessarily come with age. Sometimes age just shows up all by itself." - Tom Wilson.
It was posted on Facebook and it struck me a little bit odd, because of the way it is worded. The "way" the words form the sentence, doesn't really say anything special.
The problem is in the beginning- "Wisdom doesn't necessarily come with age" - Actually, truth be told- Wisdom does come with age, because age is always there. The rest of the quote "Sometimes age just shows up by itself" is meaningless because age is always there, not just sometimes. In essence, a seemingly profound statement some would say, however, only sounding profound without actually having any meaning whatsoever.
