Thought of the Day: To see the full potential of the tree within only its seed, that is wisdom

without comments

To see the full potential of the tree within only its seed, that is wisdom.

Picture of a NutmegThe thought of today is my own poetic license on the saying “To see things in the seed, that is genius”.  Which some say was said by Lao Tzu, but I have not yet found evidence to support that assertion.

But I believe there is plenty of evidence that wisdom is the cognitive asset that allows us to see the potential in the germ of a new idea.  It is perseverance that allows us to bring that germ of an idea to fruition.
