Judi Mitchell: How to be Wise

[At Vox Populi we specialize in exposing problems and proposing solutions, but our friend Judi Mitchell points out that it may be more important to be wise than to be right. She borrows this list from Inspector Armande Gamache featured in Louise Penny’s “Three Pines” detective series who in turn mentions the source as Becoming Human by Jean Vanier.]

Four sentences that lead to wisdom:
– I was wrong.
– I am sorry.
– I need help.
– I don’t know.
