Buddhism Day by Day: Wisdom’s Rooted in The Souls of Human Beings
“Wisdom is rooted in the souls of human beings. The way to acquire it is to follow the simple advice of Socrates: ‘Know thyself.’ This is the starting point for the establishment of a sense of human dignity, preventing the degradation of human beings into anonymous, interchangeable cogs in a machine. The essence or true knowledge is self-knowledge.”
