Why not follow the astute counsel of the wise king? He left these words behind just for you: “Cling to wisdom—she will protect you. Love her—she will guard you. Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Cherish her, and she will lift you high; if only you embrace her, she will bring you to honour.” (Proverbs 4:6-8 Wisdom)
