Wisdom teeth and your wisdomThe three important things for a person are Health, Wealth and Wisdom. The old proverb assures that if you get up early and sleep early regularly you will get all these three.
We ourselves can feel and gauge whether we are healthy and whether we have wealth. But only others can evaluate and judge whether we have real wisdom. However it is a general perception that once we age to adulthood, we become mature leaving the childishness. We become 'world-wise'. Though human beings are bestowed with thirty two teeth, four teeth do not come unill adulthood. They are the four Molar teeth, one each at the extreme back side of the jaws both sides up and down. They are wisely called 'Wisdom teeth' as they grow only by age of seventeen, eighteen and may be by twenty by which time people ae 'mature and wise'. Hence they are aptly named so.
Wisdom is not just knowledge. It is knowing and making sound judgement and self control.
Wisdom teachings tell us and show us how to live happily. However, wisdom teeth can cause pain and problems to many people. Practical wisdom then, is to visit a dentist and cure or get them removed if so needed.
