Humor and Wisdom
Humor and Wisdom, are the two important components of human nature. Not all human have these important features, because few of the human lack this ability. Some people have good humor but they lack wisdom, while some people are wise enough but they lack humor. Such cases exist but this world is full of those who have a good humor and necessary wisdom. Wisdom and humor when combine together, give rise to a smart person. Humor may lack wisdom but wisdom can create a healthy humor. Wisdom is the food of brain, while humor is the catalyst for brain. When we have a good humor and necessary wisdom, we feel healthy and good.
Many wise persons in the history had a very good sense of humor. For example, Albert Einstein who was a great physicist and scientists presented many of his scientific ideas in a healthy humorous way. For example:
“Falling in love is not at all the most stupid thing that people do – but gravitation cannot be held responsible for it”
“It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer”
See, how wisely he did humor. So we can say that humor and wisdom are the two qualities which can live together and together they can present very smart ideas, can talk smartly and can invent the smart things.
Humor does not mean to insult someone or to speak insulting words. Sometimes, people say that they have good sense of humor, but actually they have ability to make someone’s joke, they insult others by their funny words. Such humor has no relation with wisdom. Actual humor, which is called healthy humor, has a deep relationship with wisdom. A wise man thinks hundred times before he speaks. So, a wise man speaks humorous things by keeping himself restricted to the level of decency.
Laughter is the food of our soul, so enjoy the time but keep in mind that, “do not insult anyone”. Wise people never insult anyone.
