Quote of Leo Tolstoy - Human wisdom consists in a knowledge...
Biography - Leo Tolstoy:
Born: 1828 - Died: 1910
Place of birth: Russian Federation
Human wisdom is not wholly included in the number of the sciences. There is an infinite quantity of things which we cannot know. Wisdom does not consist in knowing as much as possible. Human wisdom consists in a knowledge of the order in which it is profitable to know things; wisdom consists in the knowledge of what is most important, and what is least important to know.
