Quote by John Cheever
Wisdom we know is the knowledge of good and evil, not the strength to choose between the two.
This quote emphasizes the distinction between wisdom and the ability to make moral choices. It suggests that wisdom is not simply about knowing what is right and wrong but understanding the complexities of good and evil. Wisdom encompasses knowledge and understanding of ethical principles, while the power to make choices between them requires strength and willpower. It implies that having wisdom does not automatically guarantee the capability to consistently make the right choices, as the strength to choose between good and evil lies within an individual's character and personal resolve.
Solve it. Solve it quickly, solve it right or wrong. If you solve it wrong, it will come back and slap you in the face, and then you can solve it right. Lying dead in the water and doing nothing is a comfortable alternative because it is without risk, but it is an absolutely fatal way to manage a business.
