Intelligence And Wisdom

Intelligence and wisdom are two great human qualities. Any person possessing them is looked upon with respect and considered most valuable. Generally intelligence and wisdom are considered very similar, but there are many aspects of dissimilarity between the two. As intelligence and wisdom relate to human mind it is, therefore, important to first know about human intellectual faculties.

There are six intellectual faculties: 


While humans also have sixth sense, the above six represent different abilities that a person may have providing him other means for understanding different aspects of life. The six senses make a person see, hear, smell, touch, taste and get awareness not explicable in terms of perception. The six intellectual faculties help him to be creative and resourceful, using senses to enhance awareness and develop thoughts, remember the past in any form, understand on the basis of logic and decide or go for an action. It is, therefore, abundantly clear that the senses and the intellectual faculties are the most important resources of a human being.

Learning From Birds

As the birds flew high
I couldn’t restrain my sigh
All were together and free
They could fly, sit on a tree
They could do as they like
Without fear of a strike
From birds of their own kind
Who may seem to mind
When some can fly higher
Why then they fly together?
 They are white, black and brown
Why no ill will, anger or frown?
Some are stronger some are weak
Why there is no hide and seek?
