Illustration: What Is Wisdom?

An angel appears at a teachers meeting and tells the teacher that in return for his unselfish and outstanding behavior in teaching the students to the best of his ability, the Lord will reward him with his choice of infinite wealth, wisdom or beauty. Without hesitating, the dean selects infinite wisdom.

"Done!" says the angel, and disappears in a cloud of smoke and a bolt of lightning.

Now, all heads turn toward the teacher, who sits surrounded by a faint halo of light. After a few seconds, a teacher sitting next to him whispers, "Say something wise."

The teacher looks at him and says, "I should have taken the money."
