Krishnamurti said “Not to know is the beginning of wisdom”
Imagine that; not knowing how a thing will turn out or if it is for the good or the bad is wisdom. I tend to agree. See we believe that wisdom is having knowledge of what is to be, or what is to come or of accurately predicating an outcome.

When that doesn’t happen, we immediately become sad or upset. When that happens, wisdom is not operating, but emotion is.
